Meet Dr. Damon Szymanowski your Sacramento Orthodontists

Dr. Damon Szymanowski earned a degree in integrative biology from the University of California, Berkeley. He then attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, where he actively participated in Smile Squad, educating the importance of oral health for local elementary schools. Upon completion of dental school, he attended the University of Pennsylvania for his two-year postgraduate training in orthodontics.

He’s happy to be practicing in Sacramento, where the Szymanowski family name has been well-known in the local dental community for more than 35 years. Dr. Szymanowski’s father, Cas, first opened his periodontic practice in 1970, and Dr. Szymanowski’s brother, Jonathan, joined the practice in 2001. Practicing alongside his father and brother, Dr. Szymanowski has been able to offer a “multi-disciplinary” approach to orthodontics, allowing for unparalleled orthodontic results.

Dr. Szymanowski is board-certified by the American Board of Orthodontics and stays active in the community with numerous club memberships and organizations, including:

Why an Orthodontist in Sacramento? Orthodontist vs. Dentist

Dentists receive basic orthodontic training to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who don’t need to see an orthodontist yet. Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills required to deal with more complex orthodontic issues. 

Seeing a specialist like a Sacramento orthodontist may change your braces experience by: 

  • Providing more treatment options, with a variety of braces or therapies to choose from 
  • Personal experience treating multiple cases that are similar to your unique concerns and anatomical characteristics. 
  • More efficient treatment and visits because it’s the office’s primary focus. 
  • Know that you’ll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have worse than usual bite discrepancies that need to be dealt with
  • Be seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on more prolonged patient cases or emergencies throughout the day. 

You may think it’s fine to have your orthodontic work done by your dentist, but convenience shouldn’t be a barrier to seeing a specialist. You’ll only need to stop by Sacramento orthodontic offices every six to eight weeks.  

And don’t let price be a problem either! Damon Smiles Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Sacramento area. 

Sacramento CA Braces

Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth and connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. 

Sacramento braces are an excellent choice for correcting tooth issues from simple to complex. Because they can sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Local Sacramento braces work quickly and don’t need as much complicated technology as other treatments, so it’s an excellent choice for patients on a budget.

Sacramento CA Invisalign

Unlike braces, which use brackets and bands, the Sacramento Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move the teeth into alignment gradually. Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.

Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The nearly invisible trays are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series to keep the teeth moving in the direction we want them to. Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. The aligners only for if you follow Dr. Damon’s instructions.
