Do you have crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth? Are you in need of orthodontic treatment, but hesitant about the time that traditional braces take? Ask Dr. Stacee Burson if Damon® braces in Texarkana, Magnolia and De Queen, Texas, are right for you.

Damon braces do not need metal or elastic ties, as they are self-ligating. This means that you can experience orthodontic treatment without tightening. The Damon System uses shape-memory wires that move the teeth more quickly and that do not need as many adjustments as traditional braces.

Some advantages that Damon braces have over traditional braces include:

– Treatment time is faster. Patients who use the Damon System complete orthodontic treatment seven months earlier on average.
– There are fewer adjustment appointments with our doctor. That means time saved!
– Damon braces are more aesthetically pleasing. Damon braces brackets are smaller than the brackets of traditional braces. In addition, Damon braces are available with clear brackets that are very discreet.
– They cause less tenderness. There is less pressure on the teeth, which means your orthodontic treatment can be more comfortable.
– There are fewer places on the brackets for plaque and bacteria to collect. Oral hygiene is easier because of this.
