Damon Clear Braces

Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.

Why Damon Clear

Damon Clear™ uses what’s called a “passive” slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket, allowing them to move freely. This reduces friction and binding, so your teeth can move quickly and more comfortably.

Other styles of braces use elastics or active clips that “bind” archwires in place. This creates friction and pressure that act like parking brakes and can slow down treatment.

Many patients see a noticeable change not just in their teeth, but in their entire face. We call this the Damon System Bracelift™, which can provide not just straight teeth, but also a broader smile as well as enhanced facial balance and aesthetics.

Discover what more than 2 million patients have already experienced. The Damon System is a whole-new treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – usually without tooth extractions or rapid palatal expanders.

Am I too old for orthodontics?

There is no age for orthodontics. Teeth and tissue are essentially the same to both adults and children. Orthodontists can realign crooked teeth or a protruding overbite regardless of your age.

How long will it take?

Treatment, orthodontic correction, can vary from the comparatively simple closing of front spaces in a few months, to the realignment of unsightly and disfiguring teeth, to a complete rehabilitation of a neglected mouth that could take up to two years or longer. Most orthodontists agree that adult treatment will usually take from 10 to 20 percent longer due to the difference in the physiologic responses of the tissues in the mouth of an adult as compared with a ten or twelve-year-old. Simply put, an adult’s bone structure is more dense and firmly set, so a slightly longer response time to tooth movement can be expected.

Can my appearance be improved?

Yes! Dramatic changes in a person’s smile and profile can be achieved. A person can actually look years younger by straightening crooked teeth or correcting an overbite or an underbite. A beautiful smile can increase self-confidence and, in turn, a sense of well-being.

What about surgical correction?

Surgical intervention called orthognathic surgery can offer dramatic results in certain cases where jaw relationships are so severely malposed that tooth movement alone cannot accomplish desired changes. This treatment requires close cooperation between Dr. David R. Boschken and the oral surgeon. If indicated this can be a viable alternative to conventional orthodontic treatment.

Why should I be concerned about a bad bite?

Bad bites can be detrimental to a patient’s health. Restorations, crowns or bridges are often impossible for a dentist to perform without prior repositioning of the teeth by an orthodontist. Properly aligned and supporting teeth are healthier, easier to clean, and therefore more likely to last throughout a patient’s lifetime.
