Damon braces are designed differently to metal and white conventional braces.
Easy to clean
The braces are still fixed to the teeth. However, the wires are held on to the brackets by miniature “clips” as opposed to elastic bands. As elastics can sometimes discolour, this system helps your fixed brace to stay fresh and clean.
The system also use different wires which are intended to deliver very gentle forces to your teeth. Gentle forces are useful in orthodontics as they can reduce the risk of untoward side effects of braces. In fact, using strong forces can actually cause teeth to move slower.
The wires work for longer than conventional wires, which means fewer visits to your orthodontist during treatment, which makes the treatment more convenient.
Metal Damon braces
These are available as part of our Platinum Plan are actually half metal and half white, so they look more discrete than ordinary metal braces.
Damon Clear braces- the best of both worlds!
These NEW braces combine the advantages of the Damon system with the appearance of white ceramic brackets.
