Damon Braces give you a broader and healthier smile in less time and with greater comfort than conventional braces. Damon Braces are clinically proven for 20+ years with over 7 million smiles delivered.
Everyone in San Mateo deserves to have a smile they love.
But when most patients consider straightening their crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, they assume their only option is a set of clunky, painful, and old-school metal brackets topped off with garish elastic bands.
They imagine treatment will take years, requiring dozens of trips to the orthodontist to get their brackets tightened, and that each trip will only increase their discomfort.
While treatment time can vary, the Damon System has been proven to treat faster and require fewer appointments than traditional braces.
Light force, high-technology, shape-memory wires move teeth more efficiently, reducing office visits, and faster treatment times will help you to better manage your busy schedule.
At Alborzi Orthodontics, we offer Damon braces, a superior alternative to traditional braces. These braces, made of surgical stainless steel, use self-ligating technology, eliminating the need for elastic or metal ties.
This means the braces move organically as your teeth shift, and they don’t require regular, uncomfortable tightening sessions at the Orthodontist. There’s far less pain involved in the process, and the braces are much more discreet.
The primary difference between Damon braces and other options is the amount of force they put on your teeth. The Damon braces used at Alborzi Orthodontics, located in San Mateo, generate 600 times less force than traditional braces.
This reduced pressure allows the blood vessels around the teeth to continue flowing regularly, resulting in a much healthier shifting process. The end result is a straight, natural-looking smile achieved without months of suffering.
Damon Braces’ innovative approach to orthodontics is more comfortable than conventional braces.
That’s because the Damon System’s advanced technology uses light, gentle forces to move teeth to their correct positions more freely and more comfortably.
The light, gentle forces used by the Damon System promote efficient tooth movement and help improve oral health by preserving tooth roots. Lighter forces also help prevent undue gum recession and tooth loss.
Conventional braces use elastics to tie the wire into the bracket which causes friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable.
The elastic ties of traditional braces have been proven to attract and collect plaque and bacteria. Because it does not require elastic ties, the Damon System helps improve oral hygiene and protect gum health.
Best of all, patients who use Damon braces achieve spectacular results in far less time than traditional braces — on average, 37 to 40-percent less time in treatment, with far fewer visits to the orthodontist. In fact, patients with Damon braces often get their brackets off as many as 6 to 9 months earlier than patients who go with the traditional approach.
