What Are Damon® Metal Braces?

The Damon® system is a revolutionary new way to address treating orthodontic patients and helping them achieve a beautiful smile. Rather than use traditional treatments and techniques, Damon® metal braces offer patients self-ligating braces that completely eradicate the need painful tightening and annoying bands. In addition to helping patients correct crooked or out-of-place teeth, this innovative treatment option allows patients to realign their teeth and achieve a more attractive facial aesthetic without painful extractions or palatal expanders.

Why Choose Damon® Metal Braces?

Correcting crooked teeth with braces is often regarded as a cumbersome and uncomfortable process. It often requires a number of tightening sessions that can be painful and take some time to adjust to. But what if you could achieve a beautiful, perfectly aligned smile without having to go through all that? Damon® braces are an excellent choice for patients who want to fix their smile through an alternative, effective method.

How Do Damon® Metal Braces Work?

The Damon® system offers patients innovative orthodontic treatments that can offer a more comfortable experience with fewer appointments and faster treatment. Unlike traditional braces that rely on elastic bands or metal ties to tighten your braces periodically, the Damon® metal braces use specially designed high-technology wires made with shape-memory to align your teeth without tightening sessions. Instead, they rely on a slide mechanism that holds the wire and therefore allows your teeth much more freedom to move faster and more comfortably.

How Long Do I Have To Wear Damon® Metal Braces?

Treatment time for braces will vary based on each patient’s unique orthodontic needs, however, the Damon® system typically allows patients less time wearing braces than traditional braces. It also means fewer appointments will be needed to monitor the progress of your alignment.

How Can I Care For My Damon® Metal Braces?

Caring for Damon® braces is also simpler and less cumbersome than with traditional styles. The family of Damon® orthodontic services offers metal braces in two different materials, stainless steel or polycarbonate. Both are remarkably easy to clean with a toothbrush and dentist recommended toothpaste. Damon® braces are much lighter and smaller and they don’t use elastic or ties that can accumulate pesky plaque or bacteria, which means cleaner teeth and braces for you.

Do Damon® Metal Braces Hurt?

The Damon® system of tie-less braces offers patients a significantly less painful solution to crooked and misaligned teeth. While patients may experience minor discomfort throughout some aspects of having them fitted, it is typically significantly less than traditional braces. For many patients, it just takes some time to get used to how they feel.

How Much Do Damon® Metal Braces Cost?

As with most dental services or cosmetic procedure, the total cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique needs and any additional services needed to help achieve the desired results. The cost of Damon® metal braces can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Baloul. During this appointment, your needs will be evaluated by the doctor and she will recommend the best course of treatment to help you achieve a remarkable smile without extractions or uncomfortable expanders.
