Damon Braces Coventry

Damon braces are another type of advanced teeth straightening treatment on offer at Coventry Braces. This sophisticated system offers patients a much needed alternative to more obvious metal and wire systems.

The braces make use of ‘friction free’ advanced technology to give patients a quick, comfortable and discreet teeth straightening alternative to that of conventional braces. The braces are more noticeable than braces such as the Invisalign system but are still of a relatively discreet nature. What’s more the braces are easy to clean, durable and resistant to stains.

Damon Braces do not require elastic bands (ligatures), metal ties or wires as they are what are known as passive self-ligating braces. This is possible due to the way in which the brackets are clipped onto the arch wire, creating a movement akin to sliding without the need to generate any needless force.

This sliding movement removes the need to tighten the braces regularly and also has the advantage of promoting better oral hygiene.

The Damon brace is an ideal choice for patients who have severe orthodontic problems but who also want a brace which is both discreet and quicker at reducing treatment time.

Damon braces are ideal for cases in which you suffer from the following:

  • Severe crossbite
  • Severe overbite
  • Teeth overcrowding
  • Severe underbite

If your teeth correction needs are less severe then consider Six-Month Smile, Invisalign or Invisalign Express.

The Advantages of the Damon system

Advantages of this treatment include the following:

  • Tough and hard-wearing
  • Fast treatment times
  • Comfortable
  • Tooth extraction is not required
  • No need for a palatal expander
  • Moderately discreet
  • Easier to uphold oral cleanliness

The Damon system process

Due to the self-ligating wires and friction free components of the device, teeth are able to be moved into their desired position in a smooth motion. Treatment time is 4 to 6 months faster than with a traditional brace.
