The Damon® System is an innovative new way to straighten the teeth quickly and comfortably. Traditional dental braces are comprised of large metal brackets and a wide variety of elastics. Damon® braces straighten teeth up to six months quicker than traditional braces and leave teeth healthy and beautiful.
Why should I choose Damon® braces?
Damon® braces utilize a unique type of technology to optimize the straightening process. Traditional archwires are replaced with lighter, shape-memory, self-ligating wires that need no tightening. There are no ties, more comfort, fewer extractions and fewer palate expanders. The Damon® System reduces the amount of friction each tooth experiences by incorporating a sliding mechanism. Teeth can move gently into alignment with minimal discomfort.
The Damon® System differs from traditional braces in a number of important ways:
What makes the Damon® System different?
Self-ligating braces – Damon® braces are passive and completely tie-less. The usual elastics and metal ties are replaced with unobtrusive slides. Not only does this mean that there is nothing for the dentist to “tighten,” it also means that there is less chafing on the lips and inner cheeks.
Shape-memory wires – Traditional braces require a heavy archwire to link the brackets and assert pressure on the teeth. The Damon® System replaces this with a hi-tech lightweight shape-memory wire. In essence, this wire is programmed to move the teeth quickly by working in conjunction with natural bodily forces.
Healthy teeth – Damon® System brackets are smaller than many of the traditional brackets. They are designed to reduce plaque build-up around the brackets and make home hygiene much easier. laque build-up can quickly lead to decay – especially for those wearing braces, which makes easy cleaning even more critical.
