The Damon brace system is one of the most innovative methods of teeth straightening; this brace uses specially formulated shape memory titanium wires to move the teeth gradually and without any pain. The non-friction technology involved has been designed to create a comfortable and pain-free solution to orthodontic problems.
Can Damon braces help all types of orthodontic problems?
Damon braces are really versatile and they can be used to improve a whole range of orthodontic problems; crooked, poorly positioned and twisted teeth and gaps between the teeth are among the most common problems treated by this method. Damon braces can treat some complex problems which other braces can�t; your dentist will be able to advise you as to which treatment will suit you best.
Are Damon braces expensive?
Damon braces are one of the most expensive orthodontic treatments, with treatment typically costing upwards of �2,300. The cost of treatment varies considerably between different dentists and clinics so it is best to get an estimated cost before you agree to have the treatment.
Is the treatment worth the money?
Damon braces have several benefits over traditional braces and therefore many patients may feel the additional costs can be justified. The most important benefits are the shorter treatment time and the comfort of wearing Damon braces in contrast with other types of brace; typically, Damon braces produce results up to 6 months faster than traditional braces and the fine wires and brackets make the brace much less bulky and much more comfortable to wear. In terms of looks, the Damon brace is much finer than conventional braces and is therefore much less noticeable.
Are there any other benefits?
Aside from all the advantages listed above, dentists often recommend Damon braces because they are a more hygienic device than many other types of braces; Damon braces don�t have elastic bands, which often attract food deposits, plaque and bacteria, which can cause infection. Good oral hygiene is very important as it can prevent dental health issues such as gum disease and tooth decay. Another benefit of Damon braces is that most patients don�t have to have teeth removed before they have their braces fitted; this can be a real source of anxiety for many patients.
Do Damon braces look obvious?
Damon braces are made of fine wires and small, compact brackets so they are very discreet and can only be seen from a very close distance. Damon braces are more visible than Invisalign braces but are much more subtle than traditional braces.
Is wearing the Damon brace painful?
The Damon brace has been specially designed to be as comfortable as possible; it is much finer than other braces and does not contain any elastic bands or metal bonds, which means it doesn�t need to be tightened frequently like conventional braces. As with all types of brace, it may take a little while to get used to wearing a brace and it may feel a bit odd to begin with; however, there should be very little pain.
