What Are Damon Braces?

Damon braces are self-ligating fixed braces that are fitted in the same way as traditional metal fixed braces:-

  • Damon fixed braces use a slide mechanism that attaches wires to brackets to move naturally with your teeth as they realign
  • They are attached to memory wire that connects slide brackets without the pressure that traditional elastics often produce
  • They are then set to move your teeth gradually by tightening over time
  • This process uses less force than traditional fixed braces
  • This makes them more comfortable, better looking and able to provide strong results in a shorter time

Advantages of Damon Braces

Damon braces have a number of advantages over traditional fixed braces. 

These include:-

  • Their clear brackets make them more aesthetically pleasing as they are virtually invisible
  • Faster treatment time. Studies show patients finished their treatment 6 months earlier than people with traditional fixed braces
  • Less in-clinic maintenance. Patients need nearly half as many appointments to have the appliances adjusted manually
  • Less pressure on your teeth, resulting in less pain
  • Patients reported 60% less discomfort with Damon fixed braces
  • Less friction, avoiding erosion and deterioration of your teeth
  • Fewer places for plaque and bacteria to accumulate on your braces
  • Clinical studies have found that Damon braces are:-
    • more effective at correcting severe crowding
    • more comfortable
    • have a lower relapse rate

Disadvantages

Damon braces aren’t completely perfect, they do:-

  • Have metal wires that are visible to others, so you can’t escape the metal-mouth look entirely, unless you can opt for Damon Clear to avoid the metal brackets and minimize the visibility of your fixed braces
  • Are irritating to wear for the first few days until you get used to them
  • Cost more than traditional fixed braces

Other clear aligners such as Invisalign® also offer the opportunity to straighten teeth without wearing traditional fixed metal braces.

Not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign, however, which is most effectively used when you only need mild correction.

So what are Damon braces?  

An orthodontic option, suitable at any age, if you are looking for a quicker treatment rather than traditional fixed braces.
