5 Reasons To Ask About Damon Clear

July 11th, 2018

Mitchell, Bartlett and Bell Orthodontics values education and we (Doctors Kelly Mitchell, Brian Bartlett and Carrie Bell) want to make sure all our patients and their families feel informed about their options for treatment plans. To that end, we often find ourselves explaining what the Damon system is and the benefits in using DamonSmile for orthodontic treatment. Given that Damon Smile is such a big part of our practice (along with Invisalign) we’ve put together some of the reasons why the Damon system could be a great choice for you or your child! Take a look below:

  1. A Clear Smile. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat users, rejoice! If a clear smile is important to your child, Damon Clear can be a great choice. The brackets are clear with a thin metal wire that runs through them. Pretty hard to spot in a selfie!
  2. Less Pain. As opposed to traditional brackets and elastic ties which hold wires in place in order to gradually move teeth to the correct positioning, the Damon System uses a slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket. Less friction allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
  3. Fast. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces. Often appointments will be less frequent as well! Plus, there are no additional parts which means there is no need to worry about lost, misplaced or forgotten clear aligners. You and/or your busy teen can get in and out of our offices and back to your busy schedules.
  4. Easy to Clean. Traditional braces use elastomeric rings (or ties) to hold wires in place on their brackets. Unlike those traditional systems, Damon Clear braces are much easier to keep clean.
  5. 100% Approved! As opposed to other invisible aligners everyone is a candidate for the Damon System. Damon Clear works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.

Put all these benefits together and there is a clear reason to ask about Damon Clear. It’s why we love being able to offer this treatment course to our patients. At Mitchell Bartlett and Bell Orthodontics, we recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

A Straight Smile Is the Best First Impression

April 12th, 2018

We all know the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, but the reality is: we all do. First impressions are really important and your smile says so much about you. That’s why at Mitchell, Bartlett and Bell Orthodontics, we care about not only helping teens but about helping adults as well. A straight smile is crucial to making that first impression count...and metal braces as an adult isn’t necessarily the most desired look. Because of this, we offer Invisalign Adult! The clear alternative to metal braces.

A recent study* by Invisalign, confirms that “people with straight teeth are perceived more likely to be happy, successful and second date worthy.” Speaking of dating, 55% of respondents said that a straight smile had a better likelihood of attracting potential partners on a dating site by their picture alone. Swipe right!

Already found your partner but still think a straighter smile would have a strong impact on your life? You’re right! 58% of respondents said that they perceive people with straight teeth to be more successful in business and their professional lives. That means a straight smile can be a big component of your interview kit, rocking your next presentation or winning that next big sale.

How does Invisalign Adult work?

During a consultation with one of our highly experienced doctors, we determine the exact movements necessary to get your teeth into the correct position. Then the Mitchell, Bartlett and Bell team has a custom-made series of aligners, created for you and only you using the latest and greatest in orthodontic technology. As you replace each Invisalign aligner with the next in the series, the teeth will gradually and gently shift-little by little, until they have straightened to the final position that either Dr. Kelly Mitchell, Dr. Brian Bartlett or Dr. Carrie Bell have prescribed.

Other than a great first impression once you’ve finished, Invisalign offers a great first impression while you’re working to achieve that great smile:

Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No hiding your smile in meetings, engagement photos or school pick-ups and no closed-lipped selfies here!

Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are extremely comfortable made out of smooth, sleek plastic. No wires cutting into the sides of your mouth.

Removable: Don’t want your date to know you’re working on your smile? Take them off for the evening...just remember to put them back in before you go to sleep! It may not seem like it, but they’re constantly working while you go throughout your day.

Convenient: Fewer visits to the orthodontist, meaning fewer interruptions of your busy schedule. You only need to visit us at Mitchell, Bartlett and Bell Orthodontics about once every 2-3 months to ensure that your treatment progress is on track.

Cost Effective: At Mitchell, Bartlett and Bell Orthodontics, Invisalign comes at the same price tag as traditional braces. No need to shell out extra cash to avoid metal mouth. Plus we can offer little to no down payment.

First impressions are super important to us too and we understand the need for a Facebook-ready smile. Doctors Kelly Mitchell, Brian Bartlett and Carrie Bell and our experienced team are committed to working with you (or your teen) based on your individual needs and desires. Click below for a complimentary consultation at either of our two convenient locations, in Greensboro or Kernersville. Our team will assess if you are a good candidate for Invisalign Adult. We can’t wait to meet you!
