Dr. David Richter offers advanced orthodontic treatment options, including Damon® braces, at Richter Orthodontics in Greeley, CO. Designed by Dr. Dwight Damon, this unique system uses self-litigating brackets to achieve results with less discomfort, stress on soft tissues and time in treatment.
Damon braces are available for teens and adults and offer the option of clear brackets for treatment that is virtually unnoticeable, a common concern for adult patients.
Why Choose Self Litigating Braces?
A revolution in modern orthodontic treatment, self litigating brackets no longer use an elastic band or metal band to anchor the wire and facilitate the desired tooth movement. Self litigating brackets use a slide mechanism that encases the arch wire and allow it to gently reposition teeth without the need for frequent adjustments and painful tightening. This type of bracket has been shown to provide some important benefits to patients:
- Shorter, effective treatment
- Fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments and tightening
- Less intrusion on the tooth surface and reduced risk of enamel damage and discoloration
- Maintain good oral hygiene: easier to clean and remove food debris
Dr. Richter will thoroughly evaluate your dental health to determine if Damon® or Damon® Clear Braces are right for you. He will create a personalized plan and discuss all aspects of your treatment, including duration, cost and expected results.
