Straighter, Healthier Smiles 

with Orthodontics

Straight teeth not only enhance the appearance of your smile, but can also improve your oral health. When your teeth are out of alignment, you are at a higher risk for a range of oral health problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and clenching or grinding.

However, many patients hesitate to pursue orthodontic treatment because of how noticeable metal brackets are. At Amity Gentle Dental in Amity, AR, we provide the Damon® System as a cosmetic option for orthodontics treatment. Dr. Chester V. Clark, Jr. can examine your smile and recommend the optimal course of treatment for you.

Am I a Candidate for Orthodontics?

There are many conditions treated with orthodontics, including:

  • Overbites: The condition in which the upper front teeth extend too far over the lower teeth.
  • Open bite: The condition in which there is space between the biting surfaces of your front or side teeth when your back teeth come together.
  • Underbite: The condition in which the lower teeth extend over the upper teeth.
  • Crossbite: Your front teeth should come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting normally. When this does not occur, it is called a crossbite.
  • Gaps: Abnormal spacing can occur as a result of missing teeth or an abnormal bite.
  • Overcrowding: When you have too many teeth for your dental ridge to accommodate, your teeth can appear uneven.

The best way to find out if orthodontic treatment is right for you is to visit a professional. Dr. Clark can evaluate your bite to determine if you would benefit from orthodontics.

At Amity Gentle Dental, we partner with Damon™Smile to provide the advanced Damon System for straightening teeth.

Types of Orthodontic Treatments

At Amity Gentle Dental, we offer several forms of cosmetic aligners and have partnered with Damon™Smile to provide the advanced Damon System for straightening teeth.

The Damon System

For many patients, traditional orthodontics requires the use of palate expanders and the removal of healthy teeth to create space and achieve the desired results. This process is often uncomfortable and requires a significant time investment before you even receive your braces. By using the Damon System, Dr. Clark can provide faster and more comfortable treatment.

There are three components to the Damon System:

  • Self-ligating brackets which do not require elastic bands or extra tightening appointments
  • Shape-memory wires which move teeth quickly and with fewer adjustments than metal braces
  • Specialized treatment methods to enhance your facial appearance while aligning your teeth

Damon braces are also easier to keep clean than traditional braces, allowing you to maintain your oral health more effectively. We can also offer clear brackets so your braces blend into your smile.
