Damon® Braces

The Damon® System is an innovative new way to straighten the teeth quickly and comfortably.  Traditional dental braces are comprised of large metal brackets and a wide variety of elastics.  Damon® braces straighten teeth up to six months quicker than traditional braces and leave teeth healthy and beautiful.

Prior to the adhesion of traditional braces, a tooth or multiple teeth often need to be removed to create space.  Damon® braces can be affixed without the removal of healthy teeth, because this system uses the body’s biological forces to create space naturally.

Why should I choose Damon® braces?

Damon® braces utilize a unique type of technology to optimize the straightening process.  Traditional archwires are replaced with lighter, shape-memory, self-ligating wires that need no tightening.  There are no elastics, no ties and no palate expanders.  The Damon® System reduces the amount of friction each tooth experiences by incorporating a sliding mechanism.  Teeth can move gently into alignment without discomfort.

Here is a list of some of the key advantages associated with Damon® braces:

  • Better facial aesthetics.
  • Fantastic results.
  • Increased aesthetics.
  • Increased comfort.
  • Reduced amount of dental visits.
  • Reduced need for tooth extraction.
  • Reduced treatment time.

What makes the Damon® System different?

The Damon® System differs from traditional braces systems in a number of important ways:

Self-ligating braces – Damon® braces are passive and completely tie-less.  The usual elastics and metals are replaced with unobtrusive sliders.  Not only does this mean that there is nothing for the dentist to “tighten,” it also means that there is less chafing on the lips and inner cheeks.

Shape-memory wires – Traditional braces require a heavy archwire to link the brackets and assert pressure on the teeth.  The Damon® System replaces this with a hi-tech lightweight shape-memory wire.  In essence, this wire is programmed to move the teeth quickly by working in conjunction with natural bodily forces.

Facial aesthetics – Damon® dentists use computers to project what the face might look like in 10, 20 and even 30 years.  This is extremely useful when planning treatment, because changes to the teeth can affect the whole face.

Healthy teeth – Damon® brace brackets are much smaller than traditional brace brackets.  They are designed to reduce plaque build-up around the brackets and make home hygiene much easier.  Plaque build-up can quickly lead to decay – especially for those wearing braces, which makes easy cleaning even more critical.

If you have any questions about Damon® braces, please ask your orthodontist.

Testimonials

Thirteen years ago I decided that I wanted to improve my smile. There were missing teeth and spaces, the ones I did have didn’t sparkle. I pulled out my telephone book and went to the yellow pages looking for a cosmetic dentist. There he was, Dr Eric Schikowski and Stow Dental. I called and made an appointment for a consultation. The staff and Dr Schikowski were amazing, they made me feel very comfortable. I explained why I was there and what I was looking for and a plan to improve my smile was in the works. The end result of all their hard work was I had a beautiful smile. When I am asked about my teeth I give out Dr Schikowski’s name and telephone number. The way a person feels about themselves shows when they have a beautiful smile, your confidence is beaming. Dr Schikowski and his staff do is change lives for the better. I love you all!!

Getting veneers at Stow Dental Group has been a wonderful experience. The procedure is relatively painless and the results are spectacular! Dr. Thompson and his entire staff are kind, caring and extremely professional. I can't stop smiling!

Trust, is the word that comes to mind when I think of Dr. Iati and his staff. Being a one of a kind patient and asking for a 'Masterpiece Smile' was no easy task. To top things off, I moved to Newport Coast, California in the middle of my procedure.

I could have easily selected another dentist and joined the Hollywood Stars, but I knew Dr. Iati had a mission that no other could accurately attempt to complete. It wasn't just slapping on veneers for a sparkling white smile. It was a complete adjustment of my bite. Even after Dr. Iati suggested we select a dentist in my area to help with the procedure, I refused and was willing to travel back and forth to accomplish our goal.

No other doctor or dentist has ever been as concerned about me as a patient and I was not about to give that up. He personally called me at home after each procedure; he would check up on me through email or a phone call just to see how I was feeling or if there was any change. When I was down and complaining, he would listen and help me through it.

Now, I feel it was well worth the wait. I have no more headaches or jaw pain, just that 'Masterpiece Smile' I requested when I first sat in his chair. Mission Accomplished! Thanks, Dr. Iati!!
