Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit you. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you'll be proud of. Since being certified, Dr. Jerome has treated over 5000 patients.
Invisalign Teen uses the same Invisalign® technology as adult aligners, moving teeth gradually with each set of clear, comfortable plastic aligners, But because teens (and their mouths) are constantly on the move, we've added a few special features. Invisalign clear aligners are twice as durable and 30% stronger than other retainers.
As a child grows, their smile grows with them. And even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment. This is known as phase 1 treatment. At this stage, orthodontists can see issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem.
What are Damon braces?
Damon braces are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed to straighten teeth and correct misalignments. These braces incorporate a self-ligating system, which means they do not require traditional elastic ties or metal ligatures. Instead, they use a slide mechanism that allows the orthodontist to adjust the wires easily. Damon braces are known for their discreet appearance and comfortable design, making them a popular choice among patients seeking orthodontic correction.
Why would Damon braces be needed?
Damon braces are an excellent choice for individuals who require orthodontic treatment to address a range of dental issues. They can effectively correct crowded teeth, excessive spacing, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and other alignment problems. In addition, Damon braces can improve overall dental health by resolving issues such as difficulty in cleaning teeth due to crowding. By straightening teeth and aligning the bite, Damon braces help create a harmonious smile and improve oral function.
Who would be a candidate for Damon braces?
Damon braces can be suitable for a wide range of individuals seeking orthodontic treatment. Both teenagers and adults can benefit from Damon braces, as they provide efficient and effective tooth movement. Whether you have crowded teeth, spacing issues, or bite irregularities, Damon braces can be a viable solution. They are particularly popular among those who prefer a more discreet treatment option, thanks to their sleek design and reduced visibility compared to traditional braces. Consulting with an experienced orthodontist will help determine if Damon braces are the right choice for your specific needs.
What happens during the Damon braces procedure?
The Damon braces procedure typically begins with a comprehensive orthodontic examination. This involves evaluating your dental health, taking X-rays, and creating digital impressions or molds of your teeth. These records allow the orthodontist to develop a personalized treatment plan. Once the treatment plan is in place, the Damon braces will be custom-made to fit your teeth precisely.
During the actual procedure, the orthodontist will attach the Damon braces to your teeth using a gentle adhesive. They will then insert the specially designed wires into the brackets, which will apply gentle forces to guide your teeth into their desired positions. Throughout the treatment process, you will periodically visit your orthodontist for adjustments to the wires, ensuring optimal progress.
Damon braces offer a more comfortable experience due to their unique design, which reduces friction and the need for frequent tightening. This can result in shorter overall treatment time compared to traditional braces. Remember to maintain good oral hygiene practices and attend regular follow-up appointments to achieve the best possible results.
