Clear Braces & Orthodontic Treatment in Littleton & Highlands Ranch, CO

Braces are still the most popular orthodontic treatment method to help patients achieve a healthy smile, but thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, traditional metal braces are no longer the only option. As a children's and adult orthodontist serving patients of all ages throughout the Littleton and Highlands Ranch areas, we strive to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments to suit our patients' unique needs and lifestyle. That's why we're proud to offer two exciting, effective alternatives to traditional metal braces: Damon Q & Damon Clear braces. Both of these forms of treatment improve upon the technology of traditional braces, providing an orthodontic treatment that is faster, more comfortable, and more discreet than regular braces.

"As a patient of both traditional and Damon brackets, I have noticed a very large amount of change in comfort, with Damon being more comfortable than the traditional. Damon brackets are less sharp feeling." - Ryan W., Inspire Orthodontics patient who replaced his traditional braces with Damon braces.

Damon® Q Brackets

Damon Q braces use the same fundamental structure to move teeth as traditional braces, but they make use of advanced orthodontic technology to provide improved treatment. Damon Q brackets are made from stainless steel for durability and strength, but the brackets are designed to be smoother than traditional braces, helping to provide added comfort and prevent scratches and scrapes in the mouth. They're also smaller than traditional brackets, which makes them more discreet than regular braces.


The main difference between traditional and Damon Q brackets, though, is that Damon Q brackets are self-ligating: they attach directly to the archwire without the need for an elastic band. This means that the brackets are free to slide along the wire during treatment, which allows them to apply a more precise, flexible force. This makes treatment with Damon braces both more comfortable and faster than treatment with traditional braces.
 

Damon® Clear Braces

But unlike Damon Q, Damon Clear brackets are made from a clear, polycrystalline alumina (PCA) material that blends in with teeth and resists staining, giving them a more discreet and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Damon Clear brackets are translucent, which makes them blend in with teeth similarly to Invisalign or Invisalign Teen. They come with all the same advantages of Damon Q brackets as well as an aesthetic advantage, making them very popular with adult orthodontic patients.
