Damon™ Smile braces are similar to traditional fixed braces as you know them, with the brackets fitted to the outside of your teeth. However, Damon™ braces use a ‘slide mechanism’ to hold the wire which allows the teeth to move more freely. The force applied by the arch wire to the tooth in order to move it, remains continuous therefore, adjustment appointments can be less frequent.
The brackets are smaller and lower in profile than traditional braces and, because they do not have conventional elastic ties, which can attract or collect plaque, they make cleaning during treatment much easier. The Damon™ Brace technology provides more comfort, without compromising on speed. In fact, it can produce excellent results in a shorter time. Plus, Damon™ Braces are available in clear brackets for patients who want a more discreet brace treatment.
