Great question! Dr. Ehrmantrout and our team at Hawks Prairie Orthodontics are happy to offer the self-ligating Damon Smile braces.
Damon Smile braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire in place, thus reducing the amount of pressure exerted on your teeth. In the process, this allows your teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably during your treatment with Dr. Ehrmantrout. Thanks to these innovative new braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever imagined.
So, what are the main differences between Damon braces and regular braces?
Damon braces reduce the amount of pressure being placed on your teeth, requiring fewer adjustments at our Lacey or Olympia, WA office because there are no elastics to replace. Damon Smile facilitates healthy tooth movement with complete control by combining tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires.
Even though Damon Smile works so quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and are easy to keep clean during treatment. Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, Damon Smile is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
Less Time in Braces
While the time needed in braces will vary on an individual basis, treatment time with Damon Smile is typically faster than with traditional braces. Also, far fewer appointments with Dr. Ehrmantrout are required during treatment, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free.
