3 different types of braces for beautiful straight teeth

Using the latest in modern dental technology, it’s now possible to give your child a beautiful, healthy smile more quickly, more discretely and more easily than ever before.

With this new smile, comes extra confidence for life!

There are a number of different ways to get this potentially life-changing result. Your orthodontist will be able to advise you on the best types of braces for teeth for your child’s individual needs.

Here is our pick of three different types of braces that could give your child beautiful straight teeth.

Damon metal braces

Old-fashioned braces use elastic ties - which can cause painful friction - to hold the straightening wire in place. The ties are also prone to collecting plaque, which can be unpleasant.

Damon braces are more comfortable because they use a unique slide mechanism to keep the wire in place.

This means the teeth can move more freely, which makes your child’s braces more comfortable and speeds up treatment time. Download our free Teeth Straightening Guide For Kids to learn more.


Damon braces are strong, durable and easy to keep clean.

Unlike very noticeable traditional braces, Damon metal braces use smaller, more discrete metal brackets, which give a subtle look.

Braces with ceramic brackets

Damon Clear ceramic braces have all the benefits of Damon metal braces.

But, because they use ceramic instead of metal brackets, they’re almost-invisible so most people won’t notice your child is wearing them.

This means your child does not have to worry about feeling self-conscious or standing out from the crowd.

As with Damon metal braces, Damon Clear work quickly. Compared with other orthodontic options, treatment times are usually relatively short. Compared with traditional braces and “invisible” aligners, patients need to see their orthodontist less often for “maintenance” visits.

On average, Damon patients need seven fewer visits to the dental practice during treatment than patients who have traditional orthodontic treatment, the company adds. 

Damon points out that “invisible”, removable braces made by other manufacturers are taken out at certain times during the day. “In contrast, Damon Clear works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.” 


“Invisible” braces

As the name suggests, it’s difficult to tell when people are wearing “invisible” braces. Removable, invisible braces are generally not suitable for younger children but may be suitable for some teenagers.


Invisible braces can be taken out for brushing teeth and eating. For best results the patient should wear their retainers for 20-22 hours a day. 

With this treatment, we take an impression of the patient’s teeth or a digital 3D scan and, on a computer screen, we show you the gradual movement of the teeth as they move into their final, straight positions. We then give the patient several sets of tailor-made plastic aligners. They wear a set of aligners for two weeks at a time. Each set slowly pushes their teeth into the final position.

Within months, your child can have beautiful, straight teeth.
