What are Damon braces?

Posted by Metamorphosis on Jan 6, 2017 2:43:07 PM

Have you ever wished you could enjoy straighter, more attractive teeth? If your teeth make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed, then the answer is probably “yes”.

Many people in your position eventually start to consider the many different teeth straightening options that can help adults to enjoy an attractive new smile within months. But, with no prior knowledge of adult orthodontics, it’s often difficult to know where to start.

At Metamorphosis we’ve helped thousands of people to choose the best treatment for their particular situation.

Damon Braces: 4 key questions

Here are four key questions you should consider when deciding on the treatment that can get the best results for you.

  1. How effective is the treatment? (Will it give you a smile you can be proud of?)
  1. How subtle are the braces? (Some people will not consider conventional, very noticeable metal braces because they worry they would feel self-conscious.)
  1. How comfortable are the braces?
  1. How quickly will the treatment be finished?

What are Damon Braces?

Damon Braces are a popular choice for many of our patients because they score highly in all four of these areas.

Discreet Damon metal braces are made with strong metal brackets that are much smaller than the brackets used in old-fashioned braces. A wire that is held in place by a slide mechanism connects the brackets and gently moves the teeth into a straight position over time. The slide mechanism replaces the elastic ties, which can cause friction and collect plaque, used to hold the wires in place in traditional braces.

This new technology allows the teeth to move more freely, which makes them more comfortable and easier to clean. It also means the teeth can be straightened faster than with traditional braces.

Treatment time with Damon braces is typically 4-6 months shorter than with conventional orthodontic appliances.

Damon Clear braces or Damon metal braces?

Damon Clear braces work in exactly the same way but use ceramic brackets so are even less noticeable.

The cost of Damon braces is comparable to the cost of conventional braces and other solutions such as clear aligners.

At Metamorphosis Orthodontics in south London, our many former Damon Braces patients tell us they are delighted with their new straight teeth and that they no longer feel embarrassed about posing for photographs.

Are Damon Braces right for me?

Damon Braces may well be the best solution to your problem but another option - such as clear, plastic removable braces or lingual braces, which are fitted to the back of your teeth - could suit your lifestyle better.

The only way to find out for sure is to visit a specialist orthodontist who can take a look at your teeth and talk to you about what you want to achieve.
