The Damon System of braces uses revolutionary self-ligating brackets to produce amazing results. Dr. Parker uses the Damon bracket system to help patients achieve broader, beautiful smiles with less pain, shorter treatment times and fewer extractions than traditional 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 removing healthy teeth or using palatal expanders to make space. This approach is uncomfortable, takes longer and can leave a narrower arch plate.
As a certified provider of Damon Braces in Baton Rouge, Dr. Parker combines three key components which when used together, deliver faster treatment, fewer appointments, greater comfort and consistent high-quality results.
- Damon passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
- Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
- A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Traditional braces are tied with elastics, which causes friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon uses 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. Plus the Damon System is available in clear brackets for those image conscious patients.
Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces. Damon clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably to achieve a spectacular smile.
As a Certified Provider of Damon Clear, Dr. Parker combiens the best of of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
Can you tell who’s wearing Damon Clear?
With Damon Clear, people may not even realize you’re wearing braces. Tieless Damon Clear braces are more discrete and resistent to staining and discoloration all throughout treatment.
See results faster than you might think. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces.2
And while invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth, not everyone is a candidate. In contrast, Damon Clear works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.
Another benefit: No need to worry about lost, misplaced or forgotten clear aligners, so you get in and out of treatment quickly.
Clinical studies demonstrate that Invisalign can help straighten teeth but does not treat as effectively as braces and delivers limited results.3 In fact, one study found that the mean accuracy of tooth movement with Invisalign was only 41%.4 With Damon Clear, you get more than straight teeth. A Damon doctor will take into account your unique facial proportions when aligning your teeth, bite and smile. In no time at all you’ll have the smile and facial profile and aesthetics you’ve always dreamed about.
Greater Comfort without Tightening
Clinical studies show that the Damon System provides more comfortable orthodontic treatment than traditional braces.5
Damon Clear uses tieless braces that don’t need to be “tightened” and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. Other styles of braces use elastics or active clips that bind archwires in place, which can slow down treatment and cause pain.
A Great Smile for a Lifetime
Deciding what type of treatment you want can be a difficult decision. Traditional braces, invisible aligners or Damon Clear? When making your decision, be sure to look at the big picture. Don’t focus solely on what you will experience during your time in treatment. Focus on what you will look like for the rest of your life. With Damon Clear, you’ll benefit from fast, comfortable braces that are virtually invisible during treatment. And after treatment, you’ll have a spectacular smile that goes beyond just straight teeth.
Following the end of treatment, teeth often have a tendency to return to their original positions, which is called a relapse. There are a variety of factors that may influence the possibility of relapse including the type of treatment. One study showed that patients treated with Invisalign relapsed more than those treated with braces.6 Damon System results are built to last. However, because all teeth have a tendency to relapse, it may be necessary to wear some type of removable retention device at night – such as a Damon Splint – following treatment.
No Speech Impediments
Some people suffer from speech impediments with invisible aligners. With Damon Clear, you don’t have to worry about any speech problems.
Few Office Visits
Damon System treatment requires fewer office visits than traditional braces and invisible aligners. On average, patients treated with the Damon System require seven fewer office appointments than patients who undergo traditional orthodontic treatment.7 That means more convenience for you regardless of your level of busy activity or lifestyle.
