In years gone by, if you needed orthodontic treatment the only remedy was bulky, fixed braces. Today, there’s a new breed of treatments on offer to provide teenagers and adult patients with myriad benefits. One of the most impressive systems on the market is Damon Braces.
Damon Braces are advance fixed braces that offer patients who require intensive treatment and more movement an alternative to traditional fixed braces. This system uses state of the art self-ligating technology to cut treatment times and enhance comfort. It is suitable for those with the most complex orthodontic prescriptions.
Damon Braces look different to traditional fixed braces, as they are lighter and sleeker and they feature sliding brackets, which are easier to clean and less cumbersome. The wires are fine and discreet and they use self-ligating forces to reduce pressure and friction.
How long will treatment take?
As with all treatments, there is no set treatment duration for Damon Braces and some patients will need to wear braces for longer than others. Treatment times tend to be 4-6 months less than they would be with traditional fixed braces, which are typically worn for 12-46 months.
What Do Damon Braces Treat?
Damon Braces are effective in many cases and used to treat varying orthodontic problems, including:
- overlapping or crowded teeth
- spaces between the teeth
- misplaced midline
In order to assess whether or not Damon Braces are the perfect match for you, your City Dental dentist will examine your teeth and take some tests and X-rays. If this is the right choice for you, they will talk you through the ins and outs of treatment and help you to gain a clear understanding of what treatment involves and how it works. They can also give you an idea of projected time-scale and answer any questions you have.
