Contemplating braces for the first time has me really inspecting my teeth. When I was a child, my dentist told me I had the straightest teeth he’s ever seen. My smile was amazing and I brushed my teeth all the time. Then I went to college and my wisdom teeth came in. I had major migraines and the wisdom teeth never came out because they were impacted. So, I had to have them pulled in order to feel better. Then there was too much space, and I think my tongue keeps growing because now I’ve found there isn’t enough room in my mouth for my tongue so it’s been pushing a gap into my two front teeth.
Between the gap and the slight crowding in the bottom of my teeth I think braces would be a good option, that and because I want to avoid jaw surgery. I told my current dentist of my dilemma and that was his answer, jaw surgery. No thanks, which is the main reason I’m excited to be working with the Damon System. I will be visiting a local orthodontist about getting fitted with the Damon System braces. I’m hoping that we will be able to use the Damon Clear. They are virtually invisible and have so many advantages over traditional braces and aligners. The Damon Clear offer the same fast, comfortable treatment as traditional Damon Braces, but with clear, “can’t even see” brackets! Likewise, I don’t have to worry about losing aligner trays or taking them out while eating—not that aligners would likely be a treatment fit for me as they typically are most effective for minor tooth movements not jaw surgery-like transformations. I’m looking forward to getting rid of the gap in my teeth and having more room in my mouth.
But before I start my treatment I visited the dentist for my bi-yearly checkup and found that I have some cavities I need to get rid of first. So on Wednesday I’m getting my cavities filled and then the next week I will have my first consultation for the Damon System.
If you’re interested in finding out more information or if the Damon system is right for you then use the Doctor Locator to find your nearest Damon orthodontist and ask them how you may benefit from the Damon System.
I’m a Damon Diva and am being compensated for my time and will be treated with the Damon System and sharing that experience with you.
