Orthodontics at MINT
Having a healthy, happy smile and appearance can inspire confidence and help you make a positive first impression. If you are suffering from misaligned teeth or a bad bite but are deterred by the concept of traditional metal braces, MINT orthodontics can help. Our Dallas, TX practices recommend both Damon braces and Invisalign for teenagers and adults in search of a cutting-edge solution for teeth straightening. During a consultation with board-certified orthodontic specialist, MINT orthodontics can create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the straight smile you dream of. Damon braces are a state-of-the-art orthodontic solution, using the same concept as traditional metal braces while offering fewer appointments, reduced treatment time, and less metal. To find out if you are a candidate for Damon braces, contact our support staff to schedule a consultation.
You may be an ideal candidate for Damon braces if you are a teenager or adult struggling with dental alignment, including:
- Gaps in your smile
- Crooked or overlapping teeth
Our team will perform an oral evaluation to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for Damon braces before deciding on your specific treatment plan.
What to Expect
Damon braces are self-adjusting orthodontics that are placed on the teeth in the same manner as traditional metal braces. The primary difference being that Damon braces use a slide mechanism attached to wires and brackets that move naturally as the teeth move. This makes them more comfortable, better looking, and able to provide strong results in a shorter time. Damon braces provide less pressure to the teeth than traditional metal braces and move your teeth gradually over time.
The Damon braces process is typically shorter than other conventional braces requiring significantly fewer office visits. This could mean achieving a straighter smile much faster. On average, patients see improved teeth six months faster than those who have chosen traditional braces. Once your teeth have reached the desired location, MINT orthodontics recommends continued monitoring by your primary dentist at annual dental exams to ensure your teeth remain in place. Regular dental cleanings are also of absolute importance to ensure your mouth remains healthy for life.
Why Damon Braces?
We at MINT orthodontics recommend Damon braces for several reasons:
They allow us to use extremely light forces to move teeth. The body responds more favorably to light forces and teeth actually move faster.
Light forces combined with frictionless brackets allow the tongue to widen the arches to make room for crowded teeth and create a natural broad smile.
Low friction and light forces allow the teeth to move without binding. Teeth can move faster and more efficiently, decreasing treatment time.
No Unnecessary Tooth Extractions
The time of taking out teeth for every crowded situation is past. Most patients require no tooth extractions. Damon braces help make space for crowded teeth with light biocompatible forces.
Fewer Office Visits
Damon braces do not require "tightening" or adjusting every month. This makes office visits fewer and farther in between (approximately every 8 – 10 weeks). This means less school and work absences, too!
Beautiful smiles have been created utilizing Damon braces worldwide. From New York to LA, there is no more advanced system of orthodontic treatment.
With Damon braces, MINT orthodontics can help you achieve a terrific end-result and finish your straightening treatments much faster. Depending upon your specific needs, Damon braces can lead to a beautiful smile months sooner than with traditional braces. After analyzing your specific needs, MINT orthodontics will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that will have you smiling as soon as possible.
