Damon Braces

What are Damon Braces?

Orthodontic braces are appliances that orthodontists use to help align teeth and re-proportion smiles. By applying consistent pressure to your teeth and gums, braces can slowly move the position of your smile. Using braces can also maintain the longevity of a person’s smile.

The clunky and uncomfortable braces that many people remember from their childhood are a thing of the past. The innovative Damon Braces system offers Damon Clear and Damon Metal options for teens and adults, prioritizing a more relaxed and discreet alignment, giving our patients more freedom than ever!

What are the benefits of Damon Braces treatment

There are many reasons why people choose to enhance their smiles. Aside from achieving a more balanced bite pattern, braces will improve your health. This is because straightened teeth are easier to maintain and less likely to chip and develop cavities.

Asymmetrical smiles can lead to complications like tooth decay and gum disease. Uneven teeth create pockets and places for food and other particles to become trapped. Routine maintenance like brushing and flossing may not be enough to clear the debris. Because these particles are trapped, they break down and cause your teeth to decay. However, it’s much easier to maintain and clean your teeth when there are less hard to reach areas in your mouth.

Investing in your teeth is always a smart decision. In the long run, orthodontic treatments like Damon braces can wind up saving you more money because you won’t need to pay for easily avoidable and costly dental procedures.

How do Damon Braces work?

All braces work by exerting pressure on your teeth over time. While you may often think of your teeth as firmly attached to your jawbone, the truth is they are connected to the periodontal membrane underneath your gums that connects your bone and jaw. Braces guide this membrane and subsequently help teeth move.

Damon Braces work a little differently than normal braces. This patented braces system has brackets that open and close like a door, securing the wire without elastic ties. The self-ligating design of Damon Braces aligns teeth with fewer appointments and lesser overall treatment time. With Damon Braces, patients get to enjoy the perks of a healthier smile without the hassle.

How long does Damon Braces treatment take?

Each person’s condition will require a different treatment interval. While it is difficult to ballpark treatment time without consultation, the average treatment time for Damon Braces is roughly between 18-16 months. While you may start to see results in a few weeks, the total treatment takes longer. Understanding what level of intervention is necessary will help us plan your treatment.

Braces are not a one-size-fits-all treatment, and results are determined on an individual basis. Treatment time may also vary depending on your age. Younger people have more flexible mouth structures than older people, and they may have a quicker treatment time than full-grown adults.
