The dental practice’s new service affords more comfort and faster treatment while allowing patients to forego the traditional elastic bands covering each bracket. Consequently, patients proceed through treatment without the periodic tightening of the braces, resulting in fewer check-up appointments.

Significantly, Duryea Orthodontics’ new program also allows most cases to be treated without the removal of healthy teeth – for creating space – or the use of headgear and palatal expanders. To generate space, the Damon System employs techniques that act in tandem with the body’s natural adaptation process.
The U.S. orthodontics market is expected to grow to over $6 billion within the next six years, at an annual increase of over 15%. One driving factor behind its growth is the rising demand for aesthetic dentistry. Increasing numbers of adults are choosing to undergo treatments they never had as teenagers, thanks to new technologies such as invisible dental aligners that can be taken out by the patient when necessary.
Under the Damon System, Duryea Orthodontics employs self-ligating braces, which use small doors to delicately push the wire into place on each brace. The wire then slips easily between the braces. A sliding mechanism gradually moves teeth to straighten them.
This system eliminates another problem associated with rubber bands: they are notorious for gathering food and being difficult to clean, leading to plaque accumulation.
The practice in Lakewood features several additional services for young children, teenagers, and adults, including the application of clear, plastic, removable aligners. All treatments are backed by the Duryea Smiles Guarantee: If a patient’s teeth begin to shift after treatment – assuming that directions have been followed – then Duryea Orthodontics will realign them for free, for life.
Dr. Michael R. Duryea, DDS has been practicing orthodontics in the Denver area for 24 years and has two convenient practice locations, in both Lakewood and Littleton. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society. Dr. Duryea and his staff prioritize patient satisfaction: they know that superior orthodontic treatment can enhance one’s self-esteem, and self-esteem will improve the quality of life.
One happy family said: “Dr. Duryea and his team were wonderful. Our son’s teeth look amazing, and everyone was always accommodating and kind. Thank you Duryea Orthodontics.”
