Another example of advanced orthodontic technology is the Damon system brace. This type of brace is available at Birmingham Braces as an attractive alternative to the conventional metal and wire brace.
This type of system uses ‘friction free’ technology to achieve faster and yet comfortable teeth straightening and is discreet as well. It is also hard wearing, stain resistant and easy to clean. It is relatively unobtrusive although not completely invisible in the same way as the Invisalign system.
The Damon Brace is a passive self-ligating brace which means that it doesn’t require elastic bands (ligatures), wires or metal ties to hold the archwire in position. Instead, the series of brackets clip onto the archwire and operate as a slide mechanism without causing any unnecessary force.
This slide mechanism promotes better oral hygiene and removes the need to tighten the device on a regular basis.
The Damon brace is an ideal choice for patients who have severe orthodontic problems but also want a brace which is both discreet and quicker at reducing treatment time.
This brace is a good choice if you suffer from any of the following:
- Severe overbite
- Severe crossbite
- Severe underbite
- Overcrowded teeth
If your orthodontic complaint is less severe then consider Invisalign, Invisalign Express or 6-Month Smiles.
The benefits of the Damon system
There are several benefits of this treatment which include:
- No tooth extraction required
- No palatal expander needed
- Quicker treatment times
- Relatively discreet
- Easier to maintain oral hygiene
- Highly resistant to wear and tear
The Damon system process
The friction free mechanism and self-ligating wires enable the teeth to move smoothly and surely into their correct position. This means a treatment period, which is 4 to 6 months quicker than with a standard brace.
