Metal Braces 

Offering The Latest Damon Braces to Create Healthy Smiles for Bay Shore, NY Patients

Metal braces are effective, but they haven't always been known to be visually appealing for many patients. But these days, the products available couldn’t be more different—and that’s for the best. Ocean Blue Orthodontics offers self-ligating metal braces for children and adults that can change your perception of these orthodontics and make straightening a smile more comfortable than ever. We’re proud to stay on top of the latest trends in orthodontics, as we’ve been committed to doing since 1964, and will ensure your or your child’s orthodontic treatment goes as smoothly as possible.

The Path to Your Healthiest Smile Starts With Damon Braces

Self-ligating braces, also called Damon braces, use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing them to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Remember those elastic or metal “ties” that were such a hassle to deal with? Damon braces instead use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide the teeth into place. These clips help reduce the amount of pressure and tightness on the teeth and require fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

Benefits of Self-Ligating Metal Braces

We often recommend Damon braces because they offer benefits including:

  • Faster treatment time - While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon braces are up to six months faster than traditional metal braces.
  • Accessibility for all – Invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth, but not everyone is a candidate. Damon braces, however, work for anyone.
  • No misplaced parts - There's no need to worry about lost, misplaced, or forgotten clear aligners, so you get in and out of treatment quickly.
  • Cutting-edge technology - Light “shape memory” titanium wires are used to gently guide your teeth to their ideal position.
  • Better hygiene - Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment.

A clear choice - Damon braces are also available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
