The Damon System Braces is an innovative orthodontic treatment. Although they are more expensive than traditional metal braces systems, they offer benefits that are really worth considering. Solas Orthodontics shares more information about this type of revolutionary braces below:
The Damon System Braces
With traditional braces treatments, it is often required to remove even healthy teeth, and what’s more, utilising palatal expanders in order to make more space. This is very uncomfortable, leaves a flat profile, a more slender arch, and takes longer. On the other hand, Damon braces make use of self-ligating braces, which means that instead of using elastic ligatures to attach the brackets to arch wires, the brackets are incorporated with a component capable of closing around wires ensuring a secure attachment.
Benefits of the Damon System Braces
Certified orthodontists who recommend Damon system braces combine three main elements that when utilised together provide superior comfort, quicker treatment, less appointments, and consistent outcomes:
- The self-ligating, passive braces that do not require metal or elastic ligatures; eliminates the need for uncomfortable teeth tightening during treatment
- Advanced and light wires developed for ‘shape memory’ to aid in fixing teeth quicker even with fewer adjustments.
- A clinically proven, novel treatment method for properly aligning teeth as well as improving facial profile, oftentimes without extractions or using palatal expanders
Elastics ties used with traditional braces cause unnecessary pressure and friction, which leads to slower and uncomfortable treatment. While the Damon system makes use of a sliding mechanism for securing wires, allowing your teeth to move quickly, freely, and more comfortably. They were likewise developed to be perfectly discreet and easy to maintain since they don’t use elastic ties that can accumulate plaque. In addition, the Damon System also come in Damon Clear Braces, which are virtually invisible—perfect for those conscious of their appearances.
Quicker Treatment Equals Quicker Results
Although treatment times vary from person to person, studies show that treatment with Damon braces is six months quicker than with traditional braces. Also, although other invisible aligners may resolve dental abnormalities, not everyone can be considered a good candidate. On the other hand, Damon clear braces works overtime—24/7, all seven days of the week—to align all of your teeth.
