Damon® Braces in Atlanta, GA
Damon® braces are now available at Patel & Womble Orthodontics in McDonough and Norcross. Our Atlanta board-certified orthodontists, Dr. Ruchir R. Patel and Dr. Brian A. Womble, offer these self-ligating braces for adults who want a comfortable, low profile way to straighten their smiles.
How Damon® Braces Work
Damon® braces are what we call “self-ligating” brackets. They use a trap-door system that holds your orthodontic archwire into place, as opposed to tying the archwire to the bracket with a rubber band or ligature.
Not only does this create a lower-profile appearance, but it also allows the orthodontic archwire to “glide” underneath the trap door of your Damon® brackets.
Do Damon® Braces Hurt?
The entire goal of self-ligating Damon® braces is to create a more comfortable experience for our adult braces patients. Since the orthodontic archwire isn’t bound to each tooth, there is less friction and pressure involved overall. This reduces discomfort to specific teeth and allows the mild pressure to be distributed across the mouth as opposed to being focused on one or two areas.
Cosmetic Damon® Brackets
You’ll be thrilled to know that our Atlanta Damon® braces also come in ceramic braces options. This allows your braces to blend in with your teeth. Fewer people will notice them when you’re talking or smiling. The clear looking brackets combined to the low-profile shape makes Damon ® braces extremely popular for our more mature orthodontic patients.
Benefits of Self-Ligating Ceramic Braces
Getting self-ligating Damon® braces in tooth colored ceramic gives our adult patients access to a variety of benefits, including:
- More comfortable tooth alignment
- No need for colorful brackets or wire ligatures
- A cosmetic alternative to metal braces
- Improved dental health
