Damon braces - more than straight teeth

Damon braces – more than straight teeth

Damon Braces are an orthodontic brace treatment that provides a great alternative to conventional metal braces.

Damon System braces are a discreet fitting appliance that use revolutionary self-ligating brackets, which apply frictionless force onto the teeth to help them move.

The result is a comfortable and swift treatment, which can be used by both teenagers and adults.

Damon Braces are one of the most discreet, fast acting and comfortable fixed brace systems available, providing excellent levels of tooth movement.

why are Damon braces more comfortable?

Damon Braces use friction-free, self-ligating technology, which requires no metal or elastic ties. These ties are often the main cause of gum irritation because they need to be tightened regularly. With Damon Braces the brackets use a slide mechanism to hold the wires, which provides optimum tooth movement without the excessive pressure from metal and elastic ties.

why are Damon braces faster?

The combination of self-ligating memory wire and friction-free brackets leads to treatment that is 4-6 months faster than other fixed brace systems.

Benefits of Damon braces

Shorter treatment period

More comfortable treatment

Less frequent adjustment visits

Discrete and easy to clean

Less time with braces on.

The teeth can move faster due the reduced friction between the wires and the brackets. This can reduce overall treatment time by an average of 4 – 6 months.

More comfortable treatment – easier to get used to your braces.

The wires exert very gentle forces on the teeth, meaning there is less discomfort when the braces are fitted and adjusted.

Less frequent adjustment visits – less time in the dental chair.

Damon braces do not need to be adjusted as regularly as conventional braces.

Since the brackets are much smaller than those used in conventional braces, they are less noticeable.

Cleaning is very easy with the Damon system.

How do they work?

These phenomenal braces use the latest friction-free technology and braces made from sliding brackets and memory wires to apply gentle pressure to the teeth, which causes them to move in the right direction. The forces created push and pull the teeth, resulting in perfectly aligned teeth.

What do Damon Braces look like?

As fixed braces, Damon Braces consist of small, discreet brackets and fine wires. They are much less noticeable than traditional metal train-track braces.
How long does treatment with Damon Braces take?
Treatment times vary according to the severity of the orthodontic prescription. In more complex cases, more movement will be required and treatment times will be longer than in cases where issues are either minor or moderate. Typically, treatment takes around 12-18 months.

Are Damon Braces painful?

Damon Braces use the latest technology to exert gentle forces and you should find them very comfortable. However, as with all braces, you may find these braces a little uncomfortable for the first couple of days. If you do have any soreness when your braces are fitted, you can take over the counter pain relief.

Will I be able to eat normally with Damon Braces?

Many people worry that having braces will dramatically change their diet, but this is not the case. It is true that some foods are easier to manage with braces than others, but you won’t need to make enormous changes to your normal daily diet. To begin with, it’s best to stick to soft foods and avoid anything hard or chewy while you get used to wearing your braces.

Who is a good match for Damon Braces?

As a general rule, Damon Braces are suitable for anyone who is a good candidate for traditional fixed braces.
