Damon braces straighten the crowns and roots of your teeth using a strong but gentle pressure fixed system. This is much more comfortable than a traditional brace as it does not require excessive tightening, but still gives fantastic results. With Damon braces you can achieve your dream smile much faster than conventional orthodontic treatments and generally avoid the need to have any teeth extracted.
Traditional braces often require healthy teeth to be extracted in order to make space for your new smile and prevent overcrowding. This long and uncomfortable procedure can potentially leave you with definition between you upper lip and jawline, known as a flat profile. Damon braces create a full profile and straighter teeth by applying light forces to achieve the best results, leaving you with a perfect 10-tooth natural smile. Patients often appear much younger after undergoing the Damon braces treatment.
Damon braces are best suited to correcting:
- Cross bite
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Over and under bites
- Gappy teeth
- Protruding teeth
There are two types of Damon brace; the original metal Damon brace and Damon clear. Both of these systems produce the perfect broad smile that you deserve. Damon Clear is designed to deliver the strong teeth straightening properties associated with the Damon brand whilst utilising the best features of clear and invisible brace technology.
The Treatment Process:
As with all orthodontic treatments the procedure begins with a free consultation to ensure that you are suitable for Damon braces and answer any questions you might have about the process. If Damon braces are right for you then we will begin by taking impressions of your teeth, x rays and clinical photographs. On the next visit to us we will fit the Damon brace to your teeth and ensure you are happy with all aspects of the treatment. After this we will need to see you every 4 to 6 weeks to check the progress of the treatment and make any adjustments that may be required. Depending on how severe your dental problems are the Damon braces treatment can last between 9 and 24 months.
Once your teeth have aligned to create a perfect broad smile we will remove the braces and provide you with a retainer to maintain your new smile. At Stourbridge Dental & Implant Clinic we offer removable and bonded retainers which are included in the cost of your treatment plan.
The advantages of Damon braces over other treatments include:
Perfectly straight teeth creating a broad and natural smile with a full facial profile and minimal need for extractions
Light forces used through out the treatment with little to no discomfort.
This treatment is suitable for all ages and can make adult patients appear more youthful with a facial profile lift
You will be able to eat and speak normally very quickly with little effect on your day to day life.
Typically Damon braces can be up to to 6 months faster than other systems
