1:Hot drinks make your braces tight
Patients have said that if braces are ever feeling uncomfortably tight, to have a glass of ice water and the pressure will be relieved. On the other hand, hot drinks actually cause the wire to tighten up a little.
2. They don’t set off metal detectors.
Okay, this is silly but so may people are worried about this! The materials used in making braces are a lightweight, non-magnetic alloy, so though you have to remove shoes, belt, and coat, security don’t give braces a second glance and don’t set off any bells or beeps. On that same note, you are not likely to get hit by lightning wearing braces (hooray!), and won’t pick up radio stations in your mouth 🙂 !
3. You’ll get gaps in your teeth.
The most surprising thing about braces is how much change happens in your bite, sometimes seemingly overnight. Everything will look pretty straight and even in there, and then one day you can look in the mirror and there’s a gap between two of your teeth! Then a week later, the gap is gone again. These gaps are necessary – they create space for teeth to move into place and also help bite widen enough spaceto allow for even better alignment. So if you notice gaps, not to worry – they close up just as quickly and mysteriously as they appear.
4. Braces cannot become “locked” together when two people wearing them kiss.
Today’s brackets are so small and compact that you’d have to try really hard to get them stuck together. That’s not to say somebody might not be able to make it happen if they had enough time on their hands, though…
So with these myths out of the way.. its probably making the thought of having treatment a little less daunting!
We treat our orthodontic patients with Virtually invisible, Damon Clear braces they have clear advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.
Damon Clear combines the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
With Damon Clear, people may not even realize you’re wearing braces. Other clear or so-called invisible braces have visible metal parts or elastic ties that can yellow during treatment. But tieless Damon Clear braces are more discrete and resistant to staining and discoloration all throughout treatment.
See results faster than you might think. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces.
Damon Clear works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.
With Damon Clear, you get more than straight teeth. Dr McConville will take into account your unique facial proportions when aligning your teeth, bite and smile. In no time at all you’ll have the smile and facial profile and aesthetics you’ve always dreamed about.
Greater Comfort without Tightening
Clinical studies show that the Damon System provides more comfortable orthodontic treatment than traditional braces.
Damon Clear uses tieless braces that don’t need to be “tightened” and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. Other styles of braces use elastics or active clips that bind archwires in place, which can slow down treatment and cause pain.
A Great Smile for a Lifetime
Deciding what type of treatment you want can be a difficult decision. Traditional braces, invisible aligners or Damon Clear? When making your decision, be sure to look at the big picture. Don’t focus solely on what you will experience during your time in treatment. Focus on what you will look like for the rest of your life. With Damon Clear, you’ll benefit from fast, comfortable braces that are virtually invisible during treatment. And after treatment, you’ll have a spectacular smile that goes beyond just straight teeth.
