Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
Dr. Derek A. Straffon of Straffon Orthodontics today announced professional surfer Bethany Hamilton as the official endorser of the Damon® System, an advanced orthodontic treatment offered by Straffon Orthodontics practice. Hamilton relied on the transformative Damon System braces to quickly and comfortably improve the health and beauty of her smile. Known for triumphantly overcoming a horrific shark attack, Hamilton has teamed with the Damon System to promote the treatment and encourage teens, children and adults of all ages to smile through adversity, regardless of the challenges life throws their way.
“Smiles are a blessing and an infectious tool for spreading happiness and bringing joy to others,” said Hamilton. “The Damon System transformed my smile, allowing me to confidently share my story of perseverance and encourage others undergoing adversity. I’m glad to be a part of the Damon System team and I look forward to sharing the positive changes and incredible results that I experienced with this unique orthodontic treatment.”
The light pressure used in the Damon System stimulates broad, natural arch development and typically delivers results up to 25 percent faster than traditional braces, according to clinical studies. While traditional braces require elastic ties to hold wires in place, these ties can accumulate bacteria and often require “tightening” that can hinder tooth movement and prolong treatment.
In contrast, the Damon System combines “tieless” braces with high-tech memory-shaped wires that don’t need to be “tightened.” Damon System braces are easier to keep clean, which promotes better patient hygiene throughout treatment. Additionally, treatment with the Damon System rarely requires tooth extractions and frees patients from the use of headgear, rapid palatal expanders and other invasive appliances. The cost of treatment with the Damon System is comparable to that of traditional braces.
“We’re thrilled that Bethany Hamilton is partnering with the Damon System to encourage people to achieve the smile they deserve,” said Dr. Straffon. “She has been a source of inspiration for millions and her positive experience with this innovative system demonstrates the power of a healthy and beautiful smile.”
