Damon Braces - Fixed Clear Bracesat Dentalcare Swindon Orthodontics
Straighten teeth with Damon Braces
The Damon braces system is different to other metal fixed braces because of a special sliding mechanism is uses. The sliding bracket mechanism holds the wires in place, without the need for metal or elastic bands, making tooth movement smooth and gentle. It is a great system for those with moderate to severe orthodontic cases.
If you are looking for braces for complex orthodontic cases, then Damon braces could be suitable for you. For more information, book a free patient assessment with our Patient Coordinator, or you can book a consultation with the Orthodontist for £75.
Benefits of Damon Braces
The beauty of Damon brace is that there is a lower rate of extractions required. With normal metal braces, there is usually a high extraction rate of between 40-70% of cases, however with Damon braces there is only between 10-20% of cases. This is good for patients, as more healthy teeth are saved.
Also, the comfort for patients is enhanced due to the different bracket and wires mechanism being used. There is also Damon Clear braces available, making the look of these fixed braces even more discreet. This is a great alternative for patients wanting fixed braces, but would prefer the brackets to be clear.
Frequently asked questions about Damon Braces
Can Damon braces treat all orthodontic cases?
For more severe orthodontic cases, the metal Damon braces is mainly used, and for more moderate cases, the clear Damon brace is suitable.
How do I find out if I am suitable for Damon braces?
Please book an appointment with our orthodontist, who will conduct an examination (and any x-rays if necessary). Only then will they be able to go through all your treatment options. This is a good opportunity to discuss any other concerns you might have, and get an accurate guide on cost of dental treatment.
How can I find out if I need teeth removed before braces?
With Damon braces, we shouldn’t need to extract any teeth, however there are some instances when we may need to. For example, if you have severe crowding or your mouth profile is too full to accommodate a wider smile, or if your teeth are in a bad condition and this needs to be corrected before treatment starts. So in order to find out if you need any extractions, please book an appointment with our orthodontist who will be able to advise after their examination.
