Your Sacramento CA orthodontist
Dr. Damon Szymanowski earned a degree in integrative biology from the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a four-year Letterman on the men’s swim team. 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 was accepted to 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 American Board of Orthodontics, and stays active in the community with numerous club memberships and participation in organizations, including:
- American Dental Association
- American Association of Orthodontists
- Sacramento District Dental Society
- Active participant in the Smiles for Kids program
- Chair of the Sacramento District Dental Foundation’s annual golf tournament
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, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with Dr. Szymanowski, these brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
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. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Sacramento braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Sacramento CA Invisalign
Rather than brackets and bands, the Sacramento Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment. 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 in order to keep the teeth moving in the direction we want them to. Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. The Invisalign system can only work if these recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a viable option. A free consultation with Szymanowski Orthodontics will be able to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
