The Damon® System is a revolutionary approach to braces that allows you to straighten your teeth faster, more comfortably, and more discreetly. Damon braces are self-ligating braces, which eliminates the need for traditional elastic or metal ties that hold the wire in place. This allows you to complete your orthodontic treatment without having your braces “tightened” and with fewer adjustments at our office. Traditional ties also cause friction and pressure, which slows down treatment and makes it less comfortable. The Damon System uses a slide mechanism to hold the wire, allowing your teeth to move to their correct positions more quickly and comfortably. Damon braces are specifically designed to be comfortable, discreet, and easy to clean. Dental hygiene with Damon braces is easy since you do not have elastic ties that attract and collect plaque. We also offer clear brackets for our patients who are interested in a more discreet treatment option.

In addition to straightening your teeth, Damon braces are designed to enhance your overall facial aesthetic, usually without the extractions or rapid palatal expanders that are needed for other teeth straightening systems. For a straighter, healthier, and more attractive smile, call Dr. Janice Hall Ormsby today at East Shore Dental Care. During your personalized orthodontic consultation, our dentist will help you determine whether Damon braces in Ithaca, New York, are the right choice for your smile!
