Invisalign & Invisalign Teen

As one of the leading practices in the state of Washington, the Damon’s offer the Invisalign System as a treatment option to their patients. Invisalign is a new and completely innovative approach to straightening teeth. It allows people to achieve a life changing smile without braces! 

Using advanced, 3D computer-imaging to create a digital model of your teeth, Dr. Paul Damon and Dr.  Clay Damon are able to outline a plan for your entire treatment before it even starts. Then, using a series of clear aligners custom-made just for you, your teeth move into the desired position. In order to attain the best results it is mandatory patients wear each aligner for 7 to 14 days until moving onto the next.

With Invisalign you…

  • Wear your aligners the entire day, awake or asleep unless you are eating.
  • Brush and floss the same as you normally would.
  • Keep your treatment hidden but not your smile.

Invisalign, along with Damon Clear System is a convinient and popular choice for anyone interested in improving their smile without drawing attention to the fact they’re in treatment. We are happy to help you figure out which treatment option is best for you during your complimentary consultation. 

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (Osa) - Snoring & Sleeping Solutions

Snoring is extremely common, and occasional light snoring is at worst a minor annoyance. On the other hand, loud and habitual snoring can disrupt your sleep (and that of a loved one!) and may be a sign of a much more serious sleep disorder – obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Untreated OSA increases your risk for:

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Depression
  • Memory loss
  • Morning headaches
  • Irritability

Fortunately there is another option for sufferers of snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea – Oral Appliance Therapy. This therapy involves the selection, custom fabrication and fitting of a specially designed oral appliance that maintains an open, unobstructed airway during sleep. Unlike CPAP machines, oral appliances are small, comfortable and easy to wear. 

Dr. Clay and Dr. Paul also screen every adolescent patient for sleep disordered breathing as a part of their orthodontic evaluation. While treated differently than adults, children who suffer from OSA and sleep disordered breathing also have significant associated health problems including ADHD and cognitive impairment.

The doctors may recommend an ENT evaluation for the removal of adenoids and tonsils, along with orthodontic therapy to improve your child’s airway and sleep patterns.

Frequently Asked Questions:

If you are a candidate for braces, your orthodontist will recommend an appliance specific to your dental needs. Options include bands, wires, and other fixed or removable corrective appliances. You may also have options for the latest technology such as Invisalign®. 

Your teeth are no longer growing, which means you may have to wear braces for a longer period of time, as they will shift slowly. The average adult wears braces for 18 months to three years. Once your braces are removed, you may need to wear a retainer to maintain the results of your treatment.

Brush your teeth by using a regular soft toothbrush. Brush down from the top and then up from the bottom on each tooth; always brushing away from your gums. Use a gentle sawing motion to work the floss on each side of the two teeth the floss is between. Be careful not to pull with too much force around the archwire.

You may need to go in more frequently in the beginning so your orthodontist can adjust the braces and make sure you are taking good care of them. If your treatment is progressing well and you are properly caring for your teeth, your orthodontist might decide that you only need to come in every eight weeks. The frequency of visits varies for every individual case.

The cost of your treatment will vary depending on your specific dental requirements. Once we complete a new patient exam and create a treatment plan for you, you will meet with a treatment coordinator to discuss the costs and payment plans available to you. We will work with you to create a payment plan that is tailored to your needs and budget.
