Damon Smile self-ligating braces are the most advanced type of brace used in orthodontics today, and they’re available at our Phoenix orthodontic office! Studies have shown treatment with self-ligating braces to be faster, more efficient, more comfortable, require less visits to the orthodontist, and create much broader dental arches which is quite significant to overall smile aesthetics.
As one of the first offices to use Damon Smile braces in Arizona, Dr. Foster has more experience than anyone else in the area! Dr. Foster lectures nationally and internationally specifically about the benefits of self-ligating braces, making him a leader in the field.
No elastic ties? No problem!
Damon Smile brackets use a small metal gate to secure the archwire rather than elastic ties. The mechanical advantages of this small metal gate and how it affects tooth movement are very significant.
Because teeth are more “free” with the metal gate of a self-ligating brace and not by elastic friction, teeth slide much easier, require less force to move, and move more efficiently. Overall treatment time can be reduced by 20% and total number of visits to our Phoenix orthodontic office can be reduced nearly by half! It is our goal at Butterfly Orthodontics to get to a perfect result in the most efficient manner possible for the benefit of our patients.
Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!
Damon Smile is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it's a whole new way for Dr. Foster to treat patients!
Easy to Clean
Damon Smile self-ligating braces require the same routine professional and at home care as traditional braces, but they’re designed to be easier to keep clean. Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment
Fewer Office Visits
With traditional braces, office visits are typically every four weeks. Here is where the efficiency of self-ligating braces really shine! With self-ligating braces, office visits are typically every six to eight weeks, saving you a number of unnecessary office visits during your orthodontic treatment. It adds up to less school and work time missed!
