Ace Dental

Damon braces are orthodontic appliances that are fixed onto teeth. The main difference with Damon braces is that they are self-adjusting or self-ligating. They are suitable for most people from kids to teenagers, and adults. Damon braces are yet another great option available at Ace Dental and they are an effective way to straighten your teeth without discomfort.

What Are The Advantages Of Damon Braces?

The straightening process is likely to be much shorter than with other braces and in many cases, this means the process can be shortened by about six months. With Damon braces, there are also fewer visits to the dentist as these braces are self-adjusting. This means they are also less painful and there is less pressure on your teeth.

Damon braces do not have the same amount of parts and this makes them easier to clean. There are fewer places for plaque to form and you can give your teeth a good cleaning with nothing more than regular brushing.

Why Choose Damon Braces?

Damon braces are a great option for patients who want to straighten their teeth for a number of reasons. First, they are just as effective as any of the other teeth straightening options available at Ace Dental but they are considerably smaller than other braces, making them less obvious. They are quite comfortable compared to other orthodontics and you can adjust them yourself making them more convenient.

Clear Vs. Metal Damon Braces

The main difference between clear Damon braces and metal ones is their appearance. Damon metal braces are very similar to traditional metal braces, minus the hooks and bands.

Damon clear braces are made from ceramic materials with brackets that are transparent. These are more suitable for people in prominent positions who need to maintain a winning smile, even during orthodontic treatment.

How Do Damon Braces Work?

As with all major dental work, the first step involves a visit to your dentist. The dentist will take an impression of your teeth in order to formulate a plan for your dental treatment.

Damon braces are self-ligating and this means they adjust automatically as opposed to you needing to make regular visits to the dentist for this purpose. This is made possible with a slide mechanism that is used to attach the wires to the brackets. The brackets are then able to move to realign your teeth.

The braces move ever so slightly over time. This means it takes less than is needed for traditional braces. You will still need to periodically visit your dentist for a check-up, but other than that, you’re good to go.

How Much Time Does It Take To Be Fitted With Damon Braces?

Apart from the initial consultation with your dentist which includes a complete oral examination, you can typically expect to spend a couple of hours in your dentist’s chair. The good news is, that once you have been fitted with your Damon braces, it will be a long time before you need to visit your dentist again.

How Long Does It Take For Damon Braces To Straighten Teeth?

One of the best reasons to consider Damon braces to straighten your teeth is that you will achieve your desired results up to six months faster than other tooth aligning methods. Although your dentist may recommend a minimum of 12 months, it takes Damon braces between 14 to 18 months to complete your perfect, straight smile.
