Damon Braces—The Cutting Edge of Braces


My father, Dr. John P. Eagan, started Eagan Orthodontics in 1955 as the first African American orthodontist in Michigan. Since then, Eagan Orthodontics has been creating beautiful smiles while embracing the community that has made us successful. I have been creating smiles since the age of ten, when I first began assisting my dad. I have always strived to be on the cutting edge when it comes to orthodontic technology. That is why I proudly use Damon Braces.

Damon Braces have many advantages over traditional braces. First and foremost is that Damon Braces do not require the removal of healthy teeth. Many traditional methods require teeth to be removed to "make room" for the other teeth to be shifted. The Damon method does not utilize tooth extraction, which is less abrasive and allows for a fuller, healthier smile.

Damon utilizes a passive, movable system that does not require rubber bands or metal ties. This requires less effort on the part of the braces to straighten teeth and also is much more comfortable on the patient. In addition, less treatment time is required.

The third advantage of the Damon system is that the teeth move faster and require fewer adjustments. When less treatment time and fewer visits to the orthodontist are required, the charges for treatment are lower.

Those are the general benefits. But how specifically will Damon Braces benefit you or your child? Simple! Damon Braces remain on the teeth for a shorter period of time and need fewer adjustments. Fewer trips to the clinic saves you time, gas and teeth.

Saving gas is the most obvious. At $4.00 per gallon, families need to save gas to survive

Saving time is valuable as well. Today, more than ever, children have busy social schedules. With sports, concerts and other activities, the last thing they need is to plan time at the orthodontist. With Damon Braces, they will spend less time here.

And finally, Damon braces save teeth. Utilizing all the teeth in a patients smile only makes sense. This will give the patient the biggest, fullest healthiest smile.

In short, Damon Braces truly are the cutting edge of teeth straightening technology. That is why I exclusively use the Damon system to create beautiful smiles!
