The Damon System is more than just a revolutionary system of wires and braces. It is an entirely new way of focusing on the treatment of patients.
Conventional treatment often means that healthy teeth are removed or palatal expanders are used to create space.
This type of approach often takes longer, is uncomfortable, and can result in a narrower arch and a flat profile.
In contrast, a Damon smile is a natural 10-tooth smile created using simple techniques to enhance the general facial result of the patient.
We combine three main factors that offer fast treatments, greater comfort, fewer appointments, and consistently superior results.
The Damon System Benefits:
* The Damon method eliminates the need for metal ties by using passive self-ligating braces that do not require tightening.
* Light hi-tech memory wires shift teeth more quickly and need less adjustments.
* The new approach helps align your teeth and improves the aesthetics of your face — normally without the need for rapid palatal expanders or extractions.
Conventional Braces vs. Damon Braces
Conventional braces use elastic ties that create pressure and friction, resulting in slower, less comfortable treatments.
The Damon method helps hold the wire using a sliding mechanism, allowing teeth to shift more quickly, freely, and comfortably.
Damon braces are known for being comfortable, discreet, and easy to clean. Because they do not sure elastic ties that can collect and attract plaque, they make treatment more effective in terms of dental hygiene.
The Damon system also offers clear brackets for patients who are image conscious.
Cutting Edge Technology
Damon braces represent the latest in orthodontic technology. The key to this method is the manner in which the wire fits to the bracket slot.
It results in less friction between the bracket and wire, allowing us to apply less pressure on your teeth to get them to move into the desired position.
As a result, you can expect to be more comfortable with this less invasive procedure.
Other systems create excessive friction that prevents teeth from shifting as sufficiently or effectively, resulting in the need for more pressure upon the teeth.
This can cause pain for the patient and much discomfort during treatment. Teeth are also more susceptible to developing white spots using conventional orthodontic treatment.
Damon Braces Advantages
Another advantage the Damon system has over more traditional techniques is that it gives you the fullest and widest smile you can have. This is considered to be more aesthetically pleasing to most observers.
The average treatment time is sped up. You are able to go longer between orthodontic appointments, resulting in less time away from school or work.
The Damon clear bracket is aesthetically pleasing, being invisible to the eye. It is also the smallest bracket system, making it less noticeable.
