Braces Made for Adults
Investing in your smile is one of the smartest decisions you can make. Achieving the right alignment for your smile will boost your self-confidence and lifelong health. Smiles with crowded teeth are more likely to develop gum disease or tooth decay. Eliminating crowding and spacing helps promote more effective brushing and flossing. By straightening your smile and aligning your teeth, you are proactively preventing long-term complications.
Discreet Option for Adults
The Damon System is an excellent choice for many adults looking for a dazzling, broader smile. Not only do Damon System Braces achieve a beautiful smile profile, but the revolutionary method is able to enhance your facial esthetics by achieving a youthful appearance.
Luckily the days of traditional braces and unsightly headgear have been replaced with new alternatives, such as Damon System Braces. Clients of all ages can easily see how Damon Braces can seamlessly fix their orthodontic issues and lead to an increase in self-esteem.
It has been shown that Damon System Braces achieve visible improvement within the first 10 weeks of wearing them. Conventional orthodontics requires 12–18 months to correct teeth misalignments. Therefore, Damon System Braces can shave at least six months off this time. However, the exact treatment time varies by case. Your McHenry orthodontist will assess your individual needs to determine the necessary duration. Conventional braces are generally worn for just over six months longer than Damon System Braces.
There are no metal or rubber ligatures involved in the Damon system. Elastic bands are used in conventional braces to secure the archwires in the proper position. Without ligatures, there is less friction and faster tooth movement. Damon System Braces make room for crowded teeth so there are fewer extractions. The process shifts teeth into the desired positions with light healthy movement resulting in less pain and fewer complications.
