Damon Braces are self-ligating braces that are fitted to the teeth the same way as traditional metal braces. However, unlike metal braces that need to be tightened manually, Damon braces use a sliding mechanism with reduced friction between the wires and the bracket that allows them to move naturally with the teeth as they realign. Consequently, it reduces the treatment time.
When are they needed?
If you are suffering from teeth alignment problems such as crooked, misplaced, overcrowded, or visibly gapped teeth, then you are the right candidate to have Damon Braces. The Damon braces also come in transparent variation, so that they are less noticeable and more aesthetically appealing compared to metal or ceramic ones.
How is the installation done?
The installation of Damon braces is very similar to the common metal braces. But the bracket used is different. Damon braces use sliding brackets that are self-ligated. Damon braces significantly reduce the number of visits to the orthodontist due to their self-ligating properties. The first step is our orthodontist examining your oral cavity and taking an impression of your teeth. Then the brackets are bonded on to the teeth followed by attaching of the wires to the brackets. The Damon braces use gentle pressure to move teeth to their rightful position over the course of a few months.
