Choosing an orthodontist and understanding the options available for your situation often brings several questions to mind. Here are some of the popular questions we hear. Feel free to call and discuss any questions you have with our staff.
Are all braces the same?
With the Damon System, we don’t just align the teeth; we create beautiful smiles. Dr. Randall takes into account a number of factors when first diagnosing your smile. Each individual’s face, profile and other factors are import in anticipating what they will look like in their 40s, 50s and beyond. The Damon System is designed to deliver results for a lifetime.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment.
Since the Damon System works so quickly, does that mean it is harsh or unsafe?
No. In fact, what makes the Damon System work so quickly is that it uses far gentler, more biologically sensible forces than conventional braces. The low-friction nature of the system assures improved tooth position and improved facial harmony. Very light “shape memory” titanium wires are used that gently guide your teeth to their ideal position. Many people experience very little discomfort.
Will my teeth hurt after adjustments?
Very light “shape memory” titanium wires are used that gently guide your teeth to their ideal position. Many people experience very little discomfort.
Aren't braces big and bulky?
Not anymore! Braces are much smaller than they were just a few years ago, and new materials are now used that make them very discreet.
What about adult treatment?
No problem. Adults can be treated quickly, easily, and most importantly, to a high-quality result.
How much does the Damon System treatment cost?
We know that cost is a big question for anyone considering braces. At your free initial consultation with Dr. Randall, the cost for your specific treatment will be discussed. Cost depends a lot on the kind of treatment you need and how long it will take. Damon Braces are usually similar to the cost of traditional braces. Our office offers flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, many with no down payment and no interest.
Does insurance cover Damon System treatment?
Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, you should review your policy coverage. If you have orthodontic coverage, Damon System braces are covered to the same extent as regular braces.
What payment options are available?
Our Financial Coordinator will help you find options to make your treatment affordable. We offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, many with no down payment and no interest.
We also offer third-party patient financing programs specifically designed for healthcare expenses, such as Care Credit, that makes it easier for you to get the treatment or procedures you want and need.

What materials are used in arch wires for the Damon System?

Why More People Are Choosing The Damon System
You may have already heard that self-ligating braces, like Damon braces, work faster than traditional braces. And, while this is one of the critical benefits that Damon braces provide, it isn’t the only reason more people are opting for Damon braces over traditional methods. If you have been referred for braces by your dentist or are considering them for yourself or your children, Damon braces are the best choice to create a smile that you can’t help showing off.

The Damon System: How It Works
As a certified Damon System orthodontist in Idaho Falls, Randall Orthodontics combines three key components to deliver faster treatment, greater comfort, fewer appointments, and consistent, high-quality results for each of our patients that use this system. These three key components are:
The Self Ligating System – Damon braces are passive self-ligating braces. What this means is that this system eliminates any need for elastic or metal “ties.” These tie-less braces allow for a full treatment system without tightening.
Shape Memory Wires – The light, high-technology of the shape-memory wires used in this system move teeth in a shorter amount of time and require fewer adjustments than traditional braces.
Facial Aesthetics – When you change the shape of your smile, you are, in part, changing the shape of your face. Our Idaho Falls Damon braces provide a proven treatment approach that not only aligns your teeth but also enhances your facial aesthetics. This is done without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Damon Braces: Should You Get Metal or Clear Braces?
Our orthodontist office in Idaho Falls offers two options for Damon braces, metal and clear. Choosing which option is right for you will require a consultation with your orthodontist, along with personal preference and financing options. Be sure to check with your insurance provider to see if your policy covers Damon braces. Here is a brief overview of each type of braces offered in the Damon System:
- Metal Braces – Damon metal braces look similar to traditional braces, except they are and appear to be less bulky. Damon metal braces are available in two materials, stainless steel or polycarbonate for exceptional strength and durability. Similar to traditional braces, Idaho Falls Damon braces are suitable for all types of alignment issues.
- Clear Braces – Damon Clear braces are composed of transparent ceramic, making them virtually invisible and durable. Damon Clear is designed for a patient that is considering an invisible aligner but needs a more effective system to straighten their smile. Choose Damon Clear for a robust system that is aesthetically pleasing and will give results that are intended to last for a lifetime.
