Are self-ligating braces the right choice for you?
If you live in Knoxville or the surrounding areas, you can opt for self-ligating braces from the experts at Owens Orthodontics in Maryville, Tennessee. Dr. Mark Owens has years of orthodontic experience and keeps up with the latest advancements like self-ligating braces to provide the highest quality care in the region.
Self-ligating braces are helping patients across East Tennessee and may be the ideal solution for your orthodontic needs. This alternative to traditional braces is popular with youth and adult patients alike. We offer self-ligating braces to correct various forms of misalignment, including teeth crowding, spacing, underbites, and overbites.
Self-ligating braces free each tooth to move on its own, whereas rubber bands adjust all teeth in unison. The extra wiggle room allows the braces to align your teeth with less pressure, reducing soreness and facilitating a more comfortable experience.
Reduced treatment time
Each patient’s situation is different, but Damon braces generally offer a faster process. The brackets and wires are just as effective throughout the treatment, while rubber bands lose elasticity and strength over time. They also require fewer appointments, saving time and money.
Simplified at-home care
With Damon braces, patients enjoy healthier teeth and easier brushing. Damon braces are easier to clean because there are fewer components to work around. Plus, there are fewer tight spaces for plaque to accumulate.
With this treatment, you have the option for clear brackets. Damon Smile clear brackets are practically invisible in your mouth. Adult patients especially love clear braces for their subtle look.
Our treatment plans for self-ligating braces
Owens Orthodontics treats each patient by assessing their specific orthodontic needs over time. We’ll bring you into the office for a consultation to see which treatment method is right for you. For younger patients, we monitor each situation for a longer period to see how time and growth shape their mouths and alter their treatment needs.
If we determine braces are best for you, you’ll have the option to choose Damon braces. Patients can customize their brackets with a unique color or choose clear ceramic brackets that are less visible.
Once your orthodontist places your Damon braces, they will tell you how often to return for check-ups. In most cases, patients don’t have to go to the orthodontist as often with Damon braces. For best results, continue to brush your teeth twice a day and after meals. Choosing Damon braces gives you life-changing results with a healthy mouth and cleaner, stronger teeth.
