Damon System Braces
The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires… it’s a whole new way of treating patients! Traditional treatment often requires the removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space, which can feel uncomfortable, take longer, and leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. However, Damon smiles are full, natural, 10-tooth smiles achieved with light forces specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient. Our Cary, NC practice is a certified, Elite Damon System provider, meaning we have delivered these braces in more than 300 instances.
How Damon Braces Work
There are three key components to the Damon System, which when used together, deliver faster treatment, fewer appointments, greater comfort, and consistent high-quality results:
- The need for elastic or metal “ties” is eliminated. Damon braces are tie-less or “self ligating” braces, which means you can experience treatment without tightening.
- Light memory wires move the teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
- This approach aligns the teeth as well as enhances the facial aesthetics, usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Traditional braces are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment, and the Damon System is even available in clear brackets for patients who are image conscious.
Damon Braces for Adults
Damon braces aren’t limited to just teenaged patients—it can change the lives of adults in their 40s, 50s, and beyond, too! Damon for adults is based on a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth. Dr. Bovenizer and Dr. Baker are trained to take the whole patient into account: the shape of the face, the profile, and what they will look like for years to come.
Many people see a noticeable change not just in their teeth, but in their entire face. They call it the Damon System Bracelift™ and it produces:
- A fuller, wider smile
- Better facial balance and aesthetics
- Smoother cheek contours which make narrow smiles look fuller and more inviting
- Fewer dark triangles within the corners of your mouth
- Straighter, less crowded, and less crooked teeth
- Improved profiles for a more youthful look at any age
Many patients begin to see these dramatic results in as little as 10 weeks.
Cost of Damon Braces
The cost of Damon Braces or other orthodontic treatment should never keep you from having the smile you’ve always wanted. Having an attractive smile is an important investment in yourself that can pay off in increased self-esteem, confidence, career achievements, and relationships.
Only Dr. Bovenizer and Dr. Baker can truly determine the cost of braces based on your specific needs. The cost of braces are determined by the difficulty of your case, length of treatment, insurance coverage, and more.
If you have orthodontic coverage, Damon System braces are covered to the same extent as traditional braces. We also offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, many with no down payment and flexible interest. A number of flexible payment plans are also available through ChaseHealthAdvance.
Many employers offer Flexible Spending Accounts, or FSAs, which allow you to set aside a portion of your paycheck in order to pay for qualified medical expenses. The money you set aside is deducted from your paycheck and transferred directly into your FSA. After incurring eligible medical costs, you can then submit your receipt for reimbursement from your FSA.
The good news is that orthodontic treatment usually qualifies for FSA reimbursement. If your employer offers FSA and you know you’d like to invest in a nicer smile and straighter teeth, plan ahead and consult your benefits department. In the long run, you’ll save money while getting all the benefits the Damon System. It’s an easy and convenient way to get the smile you want.
