Those of us struggling with crooked teeth often experience the embarrassed of hiding our smiles, or being self-conscious about how we look in public. But it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Many of us, adults and children alike, experience irregular alignment of our teeth.
If you have crooked teeth you may also be dealing with jaw misalignment, and both these conditions can make it more challenging to keep your teeth clean. Jaw misalignment can also lead to headaches, TMD, and jaw pain. None of which is very pleasant.
But you don’t have to let these issues linger, and relief from your suffering is just a phone call or office visit away. Dr. Eric Wang can help you realign your teeth and jaw using Damon Clear Braces which subtly straighten your teeth over time, in a safe, non-invasive and highly effective manner.

Traditional braces use brackets, which are attached to your teeth, and a wire, which applies pressure. A rubber band keeps the wire connected to the brackets, and the wire is periodically tightened, which can be uncomfortable.
Damon braces work differently.
Damon braces use a slide mechanism that moves naturally with your teeth as they realign. This means you won’t experience the type of friction commonly experienced with traditional braces. Damon braces also don’t require tightening as often, and they work more quickly than conventional braces. All of which means faster results, improved comfort, and a painless experience. And if all that wasn’t enough, these braces are also much less visible than their traditional counterparts.
Damon Clear helps to minimize the appearance of braces even more, by using clear brackets, making them almost impossible to see. If you’re self-conscious about braces, Damon Clear may be the solution for you.
In addition to being faster and less painful than traditional braces, the Damon Clear system doesn't typically require additional appliances like palatal expanders. You also usually don’t need any teeth extracted, which is a common part of the traditional approach to braces. Additionally, Damon braces are much easier to keep clean since you don’t have to scrub around rubber bands.
An experienced dentist like Dr. Wang can help you determine if this system is right for you. Many patients are suited to Damon braces, but ultimately it depends on your situation and your needs.
At your initial orthodontic appointment, Dr. Wang will get to know you and your specific situation. He’ll do a thorough exam, take photographs and x-rays of your teeth, and perform any other tests needed. From there, he will present your treatment options, which may or may not include Damon Clear braces.
Future appointments will include placing your braces and then periodically adjusting them.
