Damon braces are an innovative fixed brace treatment, which use pioneering technology to straighten teeth to produce amazing smiles. Damon braces use friction-free technology to complete treatment quickly and painlessly.
How do Damon braces work?
Traditional braces have wires tied into brackets with small elastic ligatures or modules. The elastic module creates a bit of friction as the wire attempts to pull the teeth into a nicer position. The Damon System has the wires attached to the brackets with a small smooth metal clip on the bracket. There is therefore no need for the elastic module and so friction is reduced and thus the teeth move very quickly.
What are the benefits of Damon braces?
Damon braces have many benefits:
- Speed: Damon braces work faster than traditional fixed braces; typically, treatment time can be around 4-6 months shorter.
- Comfort: Damon braces use friction-free technology to move the teeth painlessly.
- Aesthetics: Damon braces use wider wires and can often give a wider smile as a result. This can improve facial aesthetics, as well as the look of the smile.
- Versatility: Damon braces are suitable for a wide range of orthodontic prescriptions, including complex cases.
- No need for extraction: in most cases there is no need for tooth extraction..
Stages of Treatment
Stage 1: During the consultation the dentist will take measurements and will then talk to you about the treatment, how it works, how long it takes and of course the cost.
Stage 2: If you are keen to go ahead, we will need some records. A full mouth X-ray, photographs and impressions are required.
Stage 3: Your braces are fitted and appointments made to check progress and make sure you are happy with your braces.
