Types of braces

Metal Braces or Clear Braces?

If you’re hoping for more inconspicuous, comfortable, and hygienic braces, Damon braces are the way to go. That’s why we offer the Damon system here at Ostler & Bunker Family Orthodontics! Damon Braces don’t just straighten teeth—they also enhance your facial aesthetics by considering your face, profile, and other factors during treatment. You can choose between silver or clear braces.

Considering braces? Here are your options!

Metal Braces

Damon braces stand out due to their self-ligating design, eliminating the need for traditional elastic or metal ties to hold the wires and brackets together. Instead, these braces employ advanced shape-memory wires to gently guide teeth into their desired positions, resulting in a faster and more efficient orthodontic process.

In contrast to conventional braces that often require additional space for tooth movement, Damon braces typically achieve their objectives without necessitating tooth extractions or using palatal expanders.

Clear Braces

Clear Damon brackets offer a great option for those who want a more discreet orthodontic treatment. These clear brackets easily blend in with the color of your teeth, making them less noticeable and giving you a subtle alternative to traditional metal braces. Just like the regular metal brackets, clear Damon brackets use the same self-ligating technology, which means they still have the benefits of less friction, fewer adjustments, and the potential for quicker treatment.

Choosing these clear brackets allows you to confidently start your orthodontic journey without worrying about how they look. They combine practicality with subtlety, letting you achieve your desired smile while using a comfortable and less noticeable orthodontic solution.

Benefits of Braces

Patients opt for Damon braces for their heightened treatment effectiveness and reduced visibility. This innovative system accelerates the orthodontic journey, often significantly reducing the number of required appointments. Notably, Damon braces employ a friction-free mechanism, which is gentler on teeth. Furthermore, their design facilitates easier oral hygiene maintenance as they lack elastic bands that can accumulate plaque and contribute to discoloration.

Treatment Duration

The application of Damon braces can potentially shorten treatment duration by up to six months, translating to fewer visits to our office. The precise length of treatment varies according to individual needs and conditions.

At Ostler & Bunker Orthodontics, we are dedicated to providing you with optimal orthodontic solutions, and Damon braces exemplify our commitment to cutting-edge treatments that prioritize both effectiveness and patient comfort.
