Damon Braces

At Tollgate Orthodontics, it’s our mission to provide top-notch orthodontic care and treatments to all those in Warwick, West Warwick, Jamestown, East Greenwich, Coventry, North Kingstown, Saunderstown, Cranston, West Greenwich, Exeter, Providence, Johnston, and the entire Rhode Island area. To provide the greatest in orthodontic care though, it requires the need for the latest in technological advances to ensure that you get the best treatment possible. One such advance that we’re proud to offer to you is the Damon System, also known as Damon braces.

What Is the Damon System?

The Damon System is an orthodontic treatment that offers a whole new way of treating patients. Damon smiles are full, natural ten-tooth smiles that are achieved with light biologically-sensible forces that are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient. This is opposed to conventional treatment that usually require the removal of healthy teeth and palatal expanders to make space, leading for a longer and more uncomfortable process. Damon braces have none of the elastic bracket ties that are found in traditional braces, making it much easier to maintain good dental hygiene. They also offer a more comfortable and discreet form of treatment.

The Three Key Components of the Damon System

As your trusted board-certified orthodontist, we combine three key components of the Damon System to deliver faster treatment, provide greater comfort, and require fewer appointments. These components include the following:

  • Light, technologically-advanced shape-memory wires are used to move teeth faster and more comfortably.
  • Damon passive self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal ties around the brackets. This allows you to experience a treatment without any tightening.
  • This treatment approach aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics without the need for extractions, palatal expanders, or headgear.

FAQs About Damon Braces

How Long Does the Damon System Treatment Take?

While the length will vary from patient to patient and depend upon a number of different factors, treatment time with the Damon System can be up to 50% faster than treatment with traditional braces.

Will My Teeth Hurt After Adjustments?

The light ‘shape memory’ titanium wires are used to gently guide your teeth to their ideal positions. Most patients will experience very little discomfort.

Won’t There Be More Discomfort Since the Treatment Works so Quickly?

No, the low friction nature of the Damon system assures improved tooth position and facial harmony while very little pressure is actually applied to your teeth. While the advanced technologies of the Damon system allow it to provide a gentler treatment, traditional braces actually exert heavier forces on the teeth. This can disrupt the blood flow to the teeth, which can disrupt the remodeling of bone and tooth movement.

Will I Need My Teeth Pulled?

With traditional braces, orthodontists will occasionally have to pull teeth in order to create more space for crowded teeth. The Damon System uses biologically sensible forces that work with the body’s natural adaptive processes to create space. Most cases will be able to be treated without extraction.

Can Adults Be Treated Too?

Yes, adults can be treated in the same way for a quick, easy, and high-quality result.

Aren’t Braces Big and Bulky?

Not anymore! Braces are smaller and much more discreet than they were even just a few years ago.

How Much Does the Damon System Cost?

Unfortunately, there’s no set answer to that question; the cost of the treatment will vary depending on the kind of treatment that’s needed, the length of time, and the complexity of the case. However, they’re usually similar in price to traditional braces.

Does Insurance Cover Damon System Treatment?

Damon braces are covered in the exact same way as regular braces. Dental benefits will differ from policy to policy, so it’s best to review your policy coverage.

What Payment Options Are Available?

At Tollgate Orthodontics, we want to make it easier for you to get the treatment and procedures that you may need. We offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, with no interest and no down payment. We also offer third-party patient financing programs that are specifically designed for healthcare expenses with monthly payments as low as $50 with no down payment.
