Damon® braces are now available at Fayetteville Orthodontics in Fayetteville. Our Georgia, board-certified orthodontists, Dr. Kalpesh Thakkar and Dr. Ruchir R. Patel, offer these self-ligating braces for adults who want a comfortable, low-profile way to straighten their smiles.
Damon® braces are what we call “self-ligating” brackets. They use a trap-door system that holds your orthodontic archwire into place, as opposed to tying the archwire to the bracket with a rubber band or ligature.
Not only does this create a low-profile appearance, but it also allows the orthodontic archwire to “glide” underneath the trap door of your Damon® brackets.
The entire goal of self-ligating Damon® braces is to create a more comfortable experience for our adult braces patients. Since the orthodontic archwire isn’t bound to each tooth, there is less friction and pressure involved overall. This reduces discomfort to specific teeth, and allows the mild pressure to be distributed across the mouth as opposed to being focused on one or two areas.
You’ll be thrilled to know that Damon® braces from Fayetteville Orthodontics also come in ceramic braces. This allows your braces to blend in with your teeth, meaning that fewer people will notice them when you’re talking or smiling. The clear-looking brackets combined with the low-profile shape makes Damon® braces extremely popular for our more mature orthodontic patients.
Getting self-ligating Damon® braces in tooth-colored ceramic gives our adult patients access to a variety of benefits, including:
Affording Damon® braces is easy, thanks to our convenient OrthoFi and CareCredit® financing plans. If your dental insurance company has orthodontic coverage, we can also pre-verify your benefits to determine whether or not your Damon® braces are covered by your plan.
At Fayetteville Orthodontics, our board-certified orthodontists Dr. Kalpesh Thakkar and Dr. Ruchir R. Patel, offer affordable Damon® braces to adults and teens.
