Damon Braces use low-friction mechanics to create a faster way of achieving straight teeth. The Damon system may look like a traditional fixed brace, however, this is not the case. The Damon device uses a sliding mechanism. This allows the wires to move freely with the teeth.
The desired results can often be achieved up to six months faster than traditional fixed braces. In addition, Damon Braces are more hygienic than conventional train track braces.
Despite feeling almost unnoticeable, the fixtures are able to exert strong forces on even severely crooked teeth. However, patients will not feel as much pain or discomfort as with other orthodontic devices. Damon Braces are created using ceramics and stainless steel parts. This makes them less obvious to other people than traditional fixed braces.
Additionally, the increased force offered by these braces can be used to treat more severe oral health issues such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
An impression of the mouth will be taken to ensure the custom-fitted Damon Braces are an exact match to your teeth. In order to make the process more comfortable, the Damon system uses strong adhesives to attach the brackets to the teeth.
Some mild discomfort is perfectly normal following the fixture of the Damon system. As a result of the slide mechanism design of the brackets, this feeling will not be as severe as with conventional fixed braces.
Brushing the teeth after every meal is recommended. Also using mouthwash is beneficial to wash away debris and excess food.
Patients will attend a number of follow-up appointments with our specialist orthodontist. This is necessary to tighten the braces and monitor progress.
Invisalign can act as a solution for individuals with issues such as crowded or crooked teeth. Invisalign is almost invisible to the naked eye. However, Invisalign will not be successful in some very complex orthodontic cases.
Incognito Lingual braces are also available at Pearl Dental Clinic. This device is more discreet and can correct crowded, spaced, rotated, and misaligned teeth in a more discreet way than Damon clear braces. Although Lingual braces usually cost more than Damon Braces.
