For many patients, the thought of wearing braces for one to two years doesn’t exactly sound fun. With newer Damon braces, however, we can achieve exceptional orthodontic results in a shorter period. At Bernuy Orthodontic Specialist, with locations in Georgetown and South Austin, we are proud to offer both traditional and clear brackets depending upon preference.
About Damon Braces
Damon braces are a newer form of orthodontic treatment that uses self-ligating braces. Unlike traditional braces where the archwire is attached to the brackets using elastic ligatures, the Damon clear braces use brackets that have a component that closes around the wire, keeping it attached. Using this system allows the teeth to shift more freely due to no friction caused by elastic or metal ligatures, resulting in shorter treatment time, fewer follow-up appointments and even less pain and discomfort during your treatment.
At our South Austin and Georgetown orthodontic offices, we offer both metal brackets and clear brackets for the Damon system in Austin depending upon your preference. In comparison to traditional metal braces, both options are more aesthetically pleasing and less noticeable. To start your orthodontic treatment with the Damon system, schedule an appointment today.
