Damon Braces ™
Damon braces are more like the traditional fixed brace as you know them, as the brackets fix to the outside of your teeth. However, it works by using a ‘slide mechanism’ to hold the wire. There are no conventional elastic ties and the teeth can move more freely. The force applied to the tooth in order to move it, remains continuous therefore, adjustment appointments can be less frequent.
The brackets are smaller and a lower 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. Plus, Damon Braces are available in clear brackets for patients who want a more discreet brace treatment.
Holland Park Dental Centre’s specialists use this clinically proven treatment approach to align your teeth and enhance your facial aesthetics. The Damon Brace technology provides more comfort, without compromising on speed. In fact, it can produce excellent results in a shorter time. It successfully creates arch space usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders, so if a narrow arch and overly crowded teeth is your concern it would be wise to consider this treatment option.
