Types of Orthodontic Treatment

There is a difference that leads to faster, more comfortable treatment!

Every patient is different, and that means every patient needs a different approach to achieve their new smile. Thankfully, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatment methods at our offices – so no matter what your situation, we can design the perfect treatment course for you. Wondering what your options are? Here are the treatments we offer at our Litchfield Park and Verrado orthodontic offices:

Damon Braces vs. Traditional Braces

Damon braces are an advanced form of braces invented by Dr. Dwight Damon, and while they still use stainless steel brackets and archwires to move teeth, they come with one key difference: Damon brackets are "self-ligating" and don't require elastic ties to hold the wire in place, allowing the archwire to slide back and forth within the bracket.

Traditional braces tie down and bind the wire with elastic or steel ties that can discolor, attract bacteria, and even break or poke a patient. Since the wire is what moves the teeth, these ties can create friction and can require greater force.

TRADITIONAL BRACES
Metal Braces

Damon braces allow the wire to move efficiently, resulting in a more comfortable treatment process and a shorter overall treatment time. Using Damon braces often reduces the number of appointments for patients, which means less time for you in our office. With modern Damon System brackets, the days of being in uncomfortable braces for years with headgear and expanders are long gone.

Additionally, Damon braces can expand and broaden smiles in patients of any age, so in most cases, extra appliances like expanders are not needed, even in children.

With the ability to correct even severe crowding gently, permanent teeth rarely need to be extracted with the Damon System. All these advantages can save patients time and money, as well as avoid unnecessary pain and discomfort. For fast, comfortable treatment that produces amazing smiles, we use only the Damon System.

Damon Clear Braces

For a more discreet option that still offers the reliability of braces, Damon Clear Braces offer a great choice for many patients. Damon Clear Braces use the same self-ligating system as Damon Braces, but the brackets are made from a clear ceramic material that blends in with the teeth, making them far less noticeable. Since the wire is held in place by the bracket itself with Damon clear braces, no elastic are steel ties that can discolor are needed, so patients can confidently enjoy drinks like tea and coffee and foods like pasta that discolor the clear ties needed for traditional braces. The discreet nature of Damon Clear Braces makes them a popular choice for adult orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that gets rid of brackets and wires entirely, instead using a series of clear, removable trays called aligners to straighten the teeth. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn and are easy to take out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, making them a convenient and esthetic treatment option. Depending on your treatment needs and your goals, Dr. Olson can help recommend if Invisalign is the right method of treatment for you. Invisalign is incredibly popular with adult orthodontic patients, and thanks to the Invisalign Teen system, we can also offer Invisalign for adolescent orthodontic treatment.
