What is Damon® Clear™?
Damon® Clear™ braces is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment developed to correct issues with teeth and jaw alignment while appearing far less noticeable when smiling. This system uses traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to offer the control of traditional braces with extremely precise results. Damon® Clear™ offers an aesthetic treatment alternative to people with more severe issues.
Why Choose Damon® Clear™ Braces?
Damon® Clear™ is used as an alternative to clear aligners or traditional clear braces for several reasons. They are far less noticeable than metal braces yet accomplish the same goals. They treat more severe cases and can achieve results in less time than traditional clear braces. With Damon® Clear™, there is no tightening as the system uses tie-less braces.
How Does Damon® Clear™ Work?
Damon® Clear™ uses clear brackets and very thin orthodontic wires to straighten teeth. Unlike other similar types of braces, there are no rubber ties to hold the wires in place. Damon® Clear™ braces are held in place with unique, state-of-the-art brackets that straighten teeth without needing wires pressed against them.
How Long Do I Have to Wear Damon® Clear™?
Treatment time with Damon® Clear™ is typically shorter, although each patient’s treatment varies. One advantage of Damon® Clear™ is the treatment typically requires fewer appointments.
How Do I Care for My Damon® Clear™ Braces?
Damon® Clear™ are easy to keep clean, as the system does not use the same rings used with traditional braces. This allows you to keep your Damon® Clear™ braces clean and virtually invisible. As with any braces, it is important to maintain an excellent oral hygiene regimen to prevent decay.
Does Damon® Clear™ Hurt?
With Damon® Clear™, there is no pain or discomfort because the system uses tie-less braces that do not require tightening. There may be some discomfort when getting these, but it is usually more related to simply getting used to wearing braces.
How Much Does Damon® Clear™ Cost?
The cost of Damon® Clear™ varies with each patient, as it depends on the extent of the issues and how long the treatment takes to achieve the desired results. We go over the cost of Damon® Clear™ during a consultation as well as our payment options and financing through OrthoFi. If you have dental insurance, we can also help determine if your plan includes coverage for orthodontics. This is usually an elective, chosen when orthodontic treatment is planned.
Am I a Good Candidate for Damon® Clear™?
If you need braces to correct moderate to severe orthodontic issues but do not want to wear metal braces, you may be a good candidate for Damon® Clear™.
