Damon Steel

DAMON STEEL

The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires, it’s a whole new way of treating patients. Traditional treatment often requires the removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.

FRICTION-FREE DAMON BRACES FOR TEETH STRAIGHTENING

As orthodontic technology gets better, methods of teeth straightening become more discrete, comfortable, and fast-working. The latest friction-free Damon Braces system is an example of how technology has greatly improved in the field of orthodontics.

The Damon Braces system uses friction-free technology to achieve more rapid and comfortable tooth straightening than conventional orthodontics. Conventional orthodontic treatment can often require tooth extraction and the use of palatal expanders, which are used to create room for teeth to move into when there is limited space.

DAMON BRACES: THE ADVANTAGES

The advantages of the Damon Braces system over conventional treatment include:

Faster treatment times

The friction-free movement mechanism and special self-ligating memory wires make the movement of the teeth and overall treatment time much quicker. Treatment plans using Damon Braces are typically 4-6 months quicker than with conventional fixed orthodontics.

Damon Braces are more comfortable

The Damon passive self-ligating braces mean that there is no need for elastic or metal ties, which can cause irritation of the soft tissue and gums. There is also no need for regular tightening of the appliance, which can be quite painful initially. Damon Braces use an almost friction-free slide mechanism, which holds the wire; this mechanism allows your teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably.

Better oral hygiene with Damon Braces

The elastic ties associated with traditional braces often attract and collect plaque, which can be difficult to clean. Damon Braces make maintaining oral hygiene much easier during treatment.

Damon Braces are more discrete than conventional braces

Damon Braces are designed to be discrete; although not as “invisible” as clear aligners such as Invisalign, they are comfortable and easy to keep clean. The majority of the bracket (60%) is fabricated from ceramic-reinforced composite material, which is highly resistant to wear and staining. This combination of clear material and stainless steel gives the bracket a discrete appearance and a more aesthetic look during treatment.

WHICH IS BETTER: INVISIBLE BRACES OR DAMON BRACES?

This is a difficult question to answer and which you go for will depend on your orthodontic needs, both clinically and personally. Although some may argue that Invisalign or Clearstep invisible braces with clear aligners can provide a more discrete solution to straighter teeth, the Damon system will probably be faster and can treat more complex cases, such as severe overbites, underbites, and crossbites, which the invisible braces system cannot.

WILL I NEED TO WEAR HEAD GEAR?

In the past, creating space and developing arches required bulky headgear and palatal expanders. The Damon System’s revolutionary approach uses light, biologically-sensible forces to develop beautiful natural arches, in most cases without the need for head gear or palatal expanders. It’s far easier and more comfortable to get the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of.

HOW MUCH DOES TREATMENT WITH DAMON BRACES COST?

Teeth straightening with Damon Braces is more expensive than with conventional orthodontics; however, the benefits of faster treatment times, less pain, less irritation, and better oral hygiene may justify paying more for treatment using the Damon system.
