Damon System FAQ

At Raywood Orthodontics we often get questions about our most popular orthodontic system: Damon Clear, the clear bracket version of the Damon System. With 30 years of practice under her belt, Dr. Eileen Raywood is the perfect person to answer some of these questions - below are answers to the most popular.

Q. Are all braces the same?

A. With the Damon System, we don't just align the teeth; we create beautiful smiles. Your Damon orthodontist takes into account a number of factors when first diagnosing your smile. Each individual's face, profile and other factors are import in anticipating what they will look like in their 40s, 50s and beyond. The Damon System is designed to deliver results for a lifetime.

Q. How long does treatment take?

A. Treatment time with the Damon System is typically faster than with conventional braces. Also, fewer appointments are required during treatment.

Q. Since the Damon System works so quickly, does that mean it is harsh or unsafe?

A. No. In fact, what makes the Damon System work so quickly is that it uses far gentler, more biologically sensible forces than conventional braces. The low-friction nature of the system assures improved tooth position and improved facial harmony.

Q. Will my teeth hurt after adjustments?

A. Very light "shape memory" titanium wires are used that gently guide your teeth to their ideal position. Many people experience very little discomfort.

Q. Aren't braces big and bulky?

A. Not any more! Braces are much smaller than they were just a few years ago, and new materials are now used that make them very discreet. Plus with our Damon Clear system, they’re practically invisible! THey will not absorb stains from the foods that you eat and because there are no rubber ties around the brackets, which are notorious for staining, your braces will remain clear from the beginning to the end of your treatment.

Q. What about adult treatment?

A. No problem. Adults can be treated quickly and easily, too. Most importantly, they will receive a high-quality result.

Q. How much does the Damon System treatment cost?

A. We know that cost is a big question for anyone considering braces. The truth is, only your doctor can determine the cost for your specific treatment. It depends a lot on the kind of treatment you need, how long it will take, and even where you live. Damon Braces are usually similar to the cost of traditional braces. At Raywood Orthodontics, we offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans and will work with you to make sure your able to afford the smile of your dreams for you or your child.
