Damon Braces FAQ
How are Damon Braces different?
There are differences in all types of braces. The Damon System doesn’t just align the teeth it helps us to create beautiful smiles. When we first meet we take into account a number of factors including the shape of your face, profile and other factors which are import for your smile now and in the future.
How long does orthodontic treatment take with Damon Braces?
When we first meet, we will determine how much time we believe it will take to straighten your teeth and create a smile you will be happy with for a lifetime. With the Damon System, we have found treatment time is typically much faster than with conventional braces.
I have heard that my teeth will hurt after tightening?
The nice thing about Damon Braces is that we do not “tighten” your braces, because Damon Braces uses a light “shape memory” wire that is changed every few months. Many people experience very little discomfort. Most people who do experience pressure or pain find an over the counter pain reliever will alleviate most of the discomfort.
I don't want big, ugly, bulky braces?
Damon Braces are much smaller than traditional braces. They do not use rubber bands that make traditional brackets so much more noticeable.
I am an adult, can I still have braces?
Adults can be treated with Damon Braces quickly, easily, and with less discomfort than ever before.
How much do the Damon System Braces cost?
Cost is one of the first questions people have when thinking about braces. The only way to determine the cost is to see you so that we can determine the specific treatment needed. The cost of treatment is dependent upon a number of factors including how long it will take, and the type of treatment needed. Damon Braces are usually similar to the cost of traditional braces. Most importantly we offer affordable monthly payment plans with no interest.
Does insurance cover Damon System treatment?
Insurance is always a concern when seeking medical or dental care. If you have orthodontic coverage, Damon System braces are covered to the same extent as traditional braces.
