Damon Braces

Using Damon braces wires are held into the brackets by miniature clips instead of elastic bands. This means there is less friction between the wires and the brackets so that the teeth can move faster.
These brackets are half metal, half white and are a lot smaller than conventional braces. So although they are not completely white or “invisible” when compared to treatments such as invisalign or clearstep, they are sufficiently discrete for patients to be very happy with them.
What are the advantages of Damon Braces?
•Shorter treatment period – 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. For the first half of the treatment, visits are 10 weeks apart, instead of 6 to 8 weeks. This means you do not have to attend the practice so often, meaning less time out of work etc.
•Discrete and easy to clean!
•Since the brackets are much smaller than those used in conventional braces, they are less noticeable. Also, as there are no elastic bands used that can sometimes trap food, they are easier to keep clean. *
•Broader Smiles – The Damon system is particularly good at making “wider smiles”, by expanding the side and back teeth.
