Many people assume that you need to wear braces for years on end if you have complex orthodontic issues; however, thanks to amazing advances in technology and science, treatments work faster than ever before and we are delighted to introduce you to Damon Braces, a fixed brace system, which caters for all orthodontic patients and provides a faster and more comfortable alternative to traditional fixed braces.
What are Damon Braces?
Damon Braces are possibly the best example of how far orthodontic treatment has come. These braces use the latest technology and design to move the teeth quickly, while also focusing on comfort and aesthetics.
Damon Braces boast self-ligating wires and a sliding bracket system, which reduces friction, speeds up the movement of the teeth and makes teeth cleaning easier.
Who can benefit from Damon Braces?
The Damon system is very versatile and the braces are suitable for most patients, including those who have more complex needs. Often, this system is offered as a more modern alternative to traditional fixed braces.
What are the advantages of Damon Braces?
Damon Braces work faster than traditional fixed braces and they are also lighter, smaller and more aesthetically pleasing. Treatment times are between 4 and 6 months shorter than conventional braces and treatment is also more comfortable, thanks to the self-ligating wires.
This treatment is also really versatile and the braces are easy to keep clean, which improves oral hygiene and helps to lower the risk of oral diseases, such as gum disease and decay.
The treatment process
Before your braces are fitted, you will have a consultation to find out more about the treatment and chat with your dentist. Your dentist will also carry out a couple of tests to make sure that this treatment is suitable for you. If you decide to go ahead with Damon Braces, impressions of your teeth will be created and your dentist will take photographs of your teeth; these will be used to make your new braces.
Once the braces are ready, they can be fitted in a single procedure, which is simple and painless and your treatment can begin. It is normal for the braces to feel a little odd and uncomfortable at first; however, you will soon get used to them and any pain will subside very quickly.
