Braces in Wake County
With the latest advancements in dentistry, patients have more options than ever in straightening their smile. We provide cutting-edge care in our state-of-the-art facility to ensure each patient receives the care they need for a straighter smile. Treatments offered at NAY orthodontics include:
Damon® Smile Braces, including Damon Clear
The Damon system uses the latest in orthodontic technology to straighten teeth easier and faster. These self-ligating braces require no elastic or metal ties that stop the wire from moving, thus slowing teeth movement and treatment. The Damon system uses a passive slide mechanism that allows the wire to move freely within the bracket, shifting and moving with teeth. Additionally, the memory wire used in treatment adjust to the patient’s stage of treatment, thus requiring fewer visits to the dental office.
Damon Braces are completed faster than traditional braces, require fewer appointments, provide greater comfort, and produce quality, consistent result. Damon braces are available in both classic and clear colors.
Phase I Orthodontics (Early Phase of Orthodontics)
For children who show signs of misalignment, a straighter smile in adulthood begins with treatment at a young age. Our practice provides the necessary care to prepare children and young adults to receive braces or Invisalign in the future. We offer palatial expanders, spaces, early treatment, and several other options to help usher your child into a straighter smile.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
This alternative method for aligning teeth utilizes a series of clear aligning trays that are virtually invisible when in use. This allows patients to mask treatment during everyday use or remove them for picture-perfect moments.
The traditional method for straightening teeth utilizes a series of bands, metal brackets, and wires to gradually shift teeth into the ideal position. While Damon Braces are our preferred method of aligning teeth, usually producing results as good as traditional braces and often faster, some select cases may warrant the use of traditional braces.
Why Straighten Teeth?
While it is obvious to see the cosmetic benefits of straight teeth, they also provide many functional and health benefits as well. Straightening teeth is a preventive measure against uneven wear and tear, avoiding the need for restorative care in the future. When teeth are straight, teeth wear down equally, thus allowing each tooth the opportunity to carry its own weight within the dental system.
Furthermore, braces can be used to adjust cases of malocclusion causing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction or jaw misalignment.
