Damon® Braces

The Damon® System is an innovative new way to straighten the teeth quickly and comfortably.  Traditional dental braces are comprised of large metal brackets and a wide variety of elastics.  Damon® braces straighten teeth up to six months quicker than traditional braces and leave teeth healthy and beautiful.

Prior to the adhesion of traditional braces, a tooth or multiple teeth often need to be removed to create space.  Damon® braces can be affixed without the removal of healthy teeth, because this system uses the body’s biological forces to create space naturally.

Why should I choose Damon® braces?

Damon® braces utilize a unique type of technology to optimize the straightening process.  Traditional archwires are replaced with lighter, shape-memory, self-ligating wires that need no tightening.  There are no elastics, no ties and no palate expanders.  The Damon® System reduces the amount of friction each tooth experiences by incorporating a sliding mechanism.  Teeth can move gently into alignment without discomfort.

Here is a list of some of the key advantages associated with Damon® braces:

  • Better facial aesthetics.
  • Fantastic results.
  • Increased aesthetics.
  • Increased comfort.
  • Reduced amount of dental visits.
  • Reduced need for tooth extraction.
  • Reduced treatment time.

What makes the Damon® System different?

The Damon® System differs from traditional braces systems in a number of important ways:

Self-ligating braces – Damon® braces are passive and completely tie-less.  The usual elastics and metals are replaced with unobtrusive sliders.  Not only does this mean that there is nothing for the dentist to “tighten,” it also means that there is less chafing on the lips and inner cheeks.

Shape-memory wires – Traditional braces require a heavy archwire to link the brackets and assert pressure on the teeth.  The Damon® System replaces this with a hi-tech lightweight shape-memory wire.  In essence, this wire is programmed to move the teeth quickly by working in conjunction with natural bodily forces.

Facial aesthetics – Damon® dentists use computers to project what the face might look like in 10, 20 and even 30 years.  This is extremely useful when planning treatment, because changes to the teeth can affect the whole face.

Healthy teeth – Damon® brace brackets are much smaller than traditional brace brackets.  They are designed to reduce plaque build-up around the brackets and make home hygiene much easier.  Plaque build-up can quickly lead to decay – especially for those wearing braces, which makes easy cleaning even more critical.

If you have any questions about Damon® braces, please ask your orthodontist.

Testimonials

I loved my experience at Dr. Lopez's office. 20 years ago I had several unsightly metal fillings put in my mouth. Also, I've worn my teeth down by grinding considerably over the years. As I grew older, my teeth did not look good to me when I smiled. In July of 2015, I wanted to have all of the metal fillings in my mouth removed, and one of the fillings in particular had already cracked the tooth that it filled. Initially, I was very nervous, but Dr. Lopez and his staff completely put me at ease from the time I walked in the door. The way he rebuilt the grinding damage on my back teeth is remarkable. He is not only a great dentist but a gifted architect and engineer at the same time. I didn't even feel the numbing shots at all, and I actually fell asleep in the chair during the procedure thanks to Dr. Lopez's relaxing demeanor and the calming music in the room. To my wife, I affectionately refer to him as Dr. Lopezzzzzz, now, since I did fall asleep. I would recommend Dr. Lopez to even my closest family. Thank you, again, Dr. Lopez.

I went to Dr. Lopez to get veneers on eight teeth (upper, front). From my initial consultation to getting my temporary veneers put in today, I have been consistently impressed by his practice. The entire staff operate as a single, professional team. Extremely courteous, knowledgable, and accommodating, they do everything they can to help patients feel both comfortable and fully informed of everything that goes on during their visit.

My process with the veneers thus far has been extremely smooth and easy. Despite what you may read on the Internet from other people who have gotten veneers elsewhere, Dr. Lopez goes through great measures to ensure that your experience is pain and worry free. He is truly a master at his craft, and his vast experience in the dental profession (equally reflected in his accolades) definitely shows.

I have a check-up for the temporary veneers in the next couple of weeks, and the permanent veneers will arrive shortly thereafter. I have full confidence that the rest of this process will go just as well as it has so far, especially after my visit today. Highly recommend this office for your dental needs. 5/5 stars.

I have never liked going to the dentist because of painful past experiences. Shots, rough cleanings, etc. On my first visit, I had a cleaning . There was no pain. I was impressed. And a recent event that required shots, and extractions had me concerned about pain, but Dr. Lopez reassured me not to worry. As he began the shots,NO PAIN AT ALL!!! I was more than impressed! I knew I had found my dentist. Dr. Lopez and his staff are kind, gentle, professional, and the atmosphere is very relaxed and pleasant! I am very pleased, and highly recommend him!!!
