Family Orthodontist in San Jose, CA
You deserve a beautiful, healthy smile you feel proud to call your own – and at Mashouf Orthodontics, our mission is to help you get one. As a leading orthodontist serving the San Jose area, we're proud to provide a variety of high-quality orthodontic treatments including traditional metal braces, Invisalign, and state-of-the-art Damon braces. If you're interested in revitalizing your life with a brand new smile, Damon braces offer a powerful new method for orthodontic treatment.
What Are Damon Braces?
The Damon Braces System is an exciting new option for orthodontic treatment that brings new innovations and improvements to the time-tested method of traditional metal braces. Damon takes the advances in orthodontic technology that have occurred in recent years and applies them to orthodontic braces, providing a treatment that can move teeth more effectively, comfortably, and conveniently. Damon braces come with a number of advantages, including:
- Enhanced Comfort: Damon braces use a self-ligating bracket, which means they don't require an elastic tie to hold the arch-wire in place. Self-ligating brackets can slide freely along the arch-wire during treatment, which reduces the amount of pressure put on the teeth and makes for a more comfortable treatment experience.
- Reduced Treatment Time: Because the brackets are self-ligating, they're able to move teeth more efficiently. This allows the orthodontic process to move faster and reduces the amount of time you have to spend in braces.
- An Even Better Smile: Damon combines new orthodontic techniques to align the teeth into a beautiful smile that works with the aesthetics of your face, and it also helps to avoid the need for tooth extraction and palatal expansion. This means that not only is treatment more convenient, but you get a smile that will grow with you as you age – so you can truly enjoy it for a lifetime.
Can I Get Damon Braces?
Almost anyone is eligible for Damon braces, but most patients who receive them are getting adolescent or adult orthodontic treatment. Especially in cases where a patient couldn't receive early treatment, Damon braces can help to correct orthodontic problems effectively and construct a more beautiful smile – so whether you're a teen getting braces for the first time or an adult who wants to reinvigorate your life with a new smile, Damon braces may be the perfect option!
Types Of Damon Braces
Our practice is proud to provide the two most advanced forms of Damon braces: Damon Q and Damon Clear. They're both highly effective orthodontic treatments, and we can work with you to help you decide which is right for you.
Damon Q Braces
With brackets made from stainless steel and constructed with smooth, round edges that enhance comfort, Damon Q braces are a powerful form of orthodontic treatment that can fix almost any problem. They feature the self-ligating technology that Damon is known for, providing a treatment that's more comfortable and effective than ever before.
Damon Clear Braces
Damon Clear braces take all the advancements of Damon braces and add the convenience of discreet treatment. Instead of stainless steel, Damon Clear brackets are made from a transparent Polycrystalline alumina (PCA) material that resists stains from coffee, tea, and food – so you can rest assured that your braces will be almost invisible throughout your treatment. They're a great option for patients who want to achieve a new smile as discreetly as possible – and they come with all the advantages of self-ligating technology that Damon Q braces do.
