Whilst using the same traditional metallic brace work, some subtle changes can make a world of difference to you during the treatment as well as the final outcome.
Much like traditional metallic braces, they have the unique ability to straighten and align teeth in order to improve function, appearance and maintain oral health. Damon braces function similarly to metallic braces through the use of unique metallic attachments to deliver gentle forces to move the teeth into the correct position.
Damon braces can also be used in collaborative treatment to create more space in a gap to enable placement of dental bridges or even implants.
Firstly, unique Damon brackets are carefully positioned and attached to the teeth using a special form of dental cement by the orthodontic specialist. Following this, wires made from either stainless steel or titanium are then fitted into the brackets, and as they are self-ligating, there is no need to use elastic or metal ties which removes the tightening feeling when wires and ties are changed at review appointments.
Furthermore, the unique shape-memory wires have the ability to move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments which reduces the number of appointments necessary whilst delivering a faster result.
Whilst they are similar to traditional metallic braces in that they are attached to the front of the teeth, they are smaller and thus less visible than the traditional metallic wire systems. Furthermore, the Damon clear range is also available which uses tooth coloured and even clear attachments to reduce the visibility of the metallic brace.
