If you are a parent who had braces when you were growing up, you might have less-than-favorable recollection of headgear, tooth extractions, bulky appliances, painful expanders. With these memories in mind, an orthodontist telling you your child needs braces might leave you feeling worried on their behalf. But, with the advent of innovative orthodontic inventions, your child’s experience will be completely different from yours 20 years ago!
Here at Alborzi Orthodontics, we work hard to stay on the cutting edge of new yet effective orthodontics treatment options. Gone are the days of painful headgear and palate expanders in Dr. Alborzi’s experienced hands using Damon braces or Invisalign.
This device is designed to create more spaces for teeth to grow. It is anchored to the back-molar teeth by metal rings (which require spacers or separators to make room between the teeth so the metal band will fit) and sits on the roof of your child’s mouth. Parents are asked to turn a key that fits in a screw attached to the palate, by separating the palatal bones, in an attempt to make room for teeth to fit. This description sounds painful, that is because IT IS!
It also comes with a whirlwind of other unpleasant side effects, such as headaches, difficulty speaking, extra saliva, a gap between the front teeth, and food debris getting lodged between the expander and the roof of the mouth.
Damon braces are smaller and smoother than conventional braces, and they reduce the need for painful expanders. Made of high-grade surgical stainless steel, Damon metal braces straighten your teeth comfortably and gently. There are several other benefits as well:
If braces are not for you, Dr. Alborzi can do the same thing with Invisalign. The choice is yours!
