Braces

Metal Braces:

We realize a cookie cutter approach to your treatment will not get you the best possible results. To bring out your beautiful smile, we customize your treatment and that’s why we have different tools to achieve that goal. We have different metal brace options available: Damon braces, APC braces 3M, American Orthodontics & Rocky Mountain Orthodontics. Whatever may be the braces option, todays braces are much more esthetic, inconspicuous and comfortable than they were because of the advanced material options available. Remember you have several braces color options that you can choose from that you can change every time you come in for your orthodontic appointments.

Clear/Ceramic Braces:

Similar to traditional metal braces, these braces use a ceramic bracket that is almost invisible making your orthodontic treatment just as effective and less noticeable. This type of braces is more common for older patients because of their aesthetic appeal. The only drawback to these braces is that they are more fragile than normal braces and the clear elastics are more prone to discoloration.

Damon Braces

Damon Braces Wichita KSThe Damon System’s passive self-ligating braces really set it apart from other orthodontic approaches. With Damon braces, you don’t need elastic or metal ‘ties” that create friction and pressure that slow treatment and cause discomfort. Damon “tie-less” braces and advanced shape memory wires gently move teeth quickly and comfortably. Also, Dr. Gorantla has been trained in the clinically proven Damon treatment approach that not only straightens your teeth, but also gives you a broad, full smile with better facial balance and aesthetics. It’s a more youthful smile and profile that we call a ‘Damon System Bracelift.’

Are there any age restrictions for people who can get Damon Braces?
The Damon System is appropriate for nearly everyone. Most children, teens and adults have smiles which can benefit from the Damon Braces System. The best way to find out how the Damon system can help you is to set a time for a consultation with the friendly staff of Smiles Orthodontics in Wichita, KS.
How long does it take?
Each patient’s treatment time is different. Generally the Damon System is 6 months faster than conventional braces. And shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile…faster. You may be surprised at how fast.
How soon will I see results?
With Damon braces, most people start seeing results in as little as 10 weeks. But every case is different, so ask your doctor for his expectations.
Will it hurt?
The days of having braces tightened are over. That’s because Damon System braces have a unique slide mechanism that allows your doctor to use far lighter forces to move teeth to their correct positions. So not only is your treatment shorter, it is also far more comfortable. Many people experience little to no discomfort in treatment.
How much does it cost? / Does insurance cover it?
We know that cost is a big question for anyone considering braces. The truth is, it depends a lot on the kind of treatment you need. The cost of Damon braces is usually similar to the cost of traditional braces. Here at Smiles Orthodontics Wichita, KS, we offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, many with no down payment and no Interest. Because orthodontic benefits differ significantly among insurance policies, you should review your policy coverage. If you have orthodontic coverage, Damon System braces are covered to the same extent as regular braces.
How does it work?
It starts with a complimentary consultation where we can evaluate your case and give you a personalized treatment plan. You can either pay for them up-front or spread your payments out over time. If you decide to move forward, you’ll come in to get your records taken. Then you’ll come in on a regular basis so we can make sure your treatment is proceeding as planned. You can start to see results in as little as 10 weeks and before you know it you’ll have the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
