Damon Braces

Get your perfect smile quicker and easier.

  • More efficient
  • Require fewer adjustments
  • Teeth move gently & easily

Damon Braces use a sliding mechanism on the bracket to hold the wire in place, instead of the elastic or rubber bands used by fixed metal braces. This makes Damon Braces a faster and more hygienic orthodontic treatment than alternative orthodontic treatments.

Whilst traditional metallic braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment used in adults and children, they are not the only option any more by far.

Damon Braces are one of the most successful alternatives to metal braces. Instead of using the same elastic bands to hold the wire in place, Damon braces use a sliding mechanism built in. This means that they are self-ligating, or self-tightening. Therefore, you will not need to come in for quite as many appointments to have the wire tightened manually.

Damon Braces at the Neem Tree

We offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments for patients of all ages who want their perfect smile. Damon Braces can give you that smile safely and swiftly by reducing the number of necessary appointments.

Damon braces are also more hygienic than metal braces as they use smaller brackets and no rubber bands. This makes it far easier to properly clean plaque from the surrounding area. Damon Braces can also be made from clear plastic, which makes them far more discreet than metal braces.

Learn more about Damon Braces

What are Damon braces?

Damon braces are an evolution of traditional metal braces with metal brackets. The main difference is that Damon braces are self-ligating. This means that unlike regular braces where you are required to periodically come in to the surgery for tightening, the Damon system gradually tightens by itself over time. The Damon braces have a sliding mechanism that works by itself without any orthodontic help to straighten your teeth. 

Contact us to book an orthodontic appointment to find out more about Damon braces in Wandsworth, South West London or Esher, Surrey.

How do Damon braces tighten themselves?

Damon braces use a slide mechanism that is attached to each bracket. The sliding mechanism is in constant motion, continuously moving while your mouth moves. This is how it pulls your teeth and repositions them into the desired position. 

The results with Damon braces are very noticeable in a shorter amount of time than you could achieve with traditional braces.

Will my teeth hurt?

As your teeth move and adjust with your braces you will feel mild pain and a little discomfort, but because of the sliding mechanism in Damon braces, your teeth will move without any strong heavy force or friction so it will be a lot less painful than traditional metal braces. 

Are Damon braces suitable for adults?

Yes, Damon braces are suitable for adults and they are a preferred option to most adults as they are less noticeable than traditional braces and the results are a lot faster. 

How many appointments will I need?

Damon braces self-tighten which means you need far fewer appointments with your orthodontist.

What are the advantages of Damon braces?

  • Less visible
  • Faster results than traditional braces
  • Self ligating
  • You need fewer appointments with your orthodontist

What are the disadvantages of Damon braces?

  • May be more expensive than traditional braces
  • Although Damon braces reduce the complete metal look and they may minimise visibility, they are still visible
  • It could be a bit harder to clean your teeth with your Damon braces on your teeth.

How long do Damon braces take?

Treatment time varies from person to person. The longer the treatment will depend on the severity of your orthodontic needs. Typically, treatment will take from 12-18 months. If your case is especially complex, then you may need to wear your braces for a bit longer. 

What are the alternatives to Damon braces?

Contact our practices in Wandsworth, South West London or Esher, Surrey to discuss the best way to straighten your teeth.

Will I need sedation?

No, you will not be sedated with the process of applying the braces on your teeth or any other process during your treatment. 

Will I need a retainer after treatment?

You will need a retainer after your treatment as these will be designed to hold your teeth in place. Your teeth are prone to move as you grow throughout your life, retainers ensure that when your jaw grows, your teeth stay in proper alignment. 

How do Damon Braces work?

Much like traditional metal 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 metal 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 metal braces in that they are attached to the front of the teeth, they are smaller and thus less visible than the traditional metal wire systems. Furthermore, the Damon clear range is also available which uses tooth coloured and even clear attachments to reduce the visibility of the metal brace.

Will my teeth hurt after adjustments?

They can feel a little uncomfortable but this is temporary.
