Damon Braces vs. Traditional Metal Braces: Which one is better?

Braces are dental devices that are used to correct misaligned teeth, treat crowding, gaps, and other flaws. Traditionally, metal arches, brackets, and elastics were placed on the teeth to provide the necessary pressure. Damon braces take a completely different approach: they are self-binding or self-ligating braces. Traditional metal braces are fixed to teeth and then they are adjusted by an orthodontist, but the self-binding braces have specialty doors and slides that work to move teeth with constant adjustment and pressure. As there is always force on your teeth moving them into the position you can effectively reduce the length of your treatment and experience far fewer appointment visits because your braces will not need constant adjustments.

How do Damon Braces Work?

Damon braces use gentle pressure and biologically sensitive forces of the body to move the teeth into a correct position. The archwires used in Damon systems are designed to eventually return to their original balanced form allowing the dental arches of the patient to develop the right way.

Benefits of Damon Braces

Shorter Treatment time

Teeth movement is quickened using memory wires that are self-ligating. As compared to conventional treatment methods, this type of braces offers treatment plans that are at least four to six months quicker.

Damon braces offer both metal and clear brackets

For those who chose to go with the clear brackets, Damon braces, will be much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. The combination of stainless steel and clear material used in Damon clear braces offers a more discrete and aesthetic appearance.

Damon braces are better for Oral hygiene

Traditional braces tend to collect plaque due to difficulty in cleaning. Damon braces, on the other hand, make cleaning easier and assure you of better oral hygiene.

Damon braces cause less discomfort

Wires used in this treatment method do not irritate the soft gums and tissues. They are held in place by the friction-free slide mechanism that allows for free movement. All this assures you of enhanced comfort during the treatment.

Less Adjustment Appointments

In addition to being less painful and getting the desired results in shorter time, Damon braces also take less time at the dental office during treatment.

Might prevent teeth extractions

When getting traditional braces, the patient will often need to go through teeth extractions procedures for the treatment to be successful. With Damon braces, teeth extractions are rare and most patients get to keep all of their teeth.
