Damon Braces / Traditional - Los Angeles, CA

We'll I got my procedure done on October 18 2013...

We'll I got my procedure done on October 18 2013 and my doctor suggested damon braces upon my initial consultation which total cost was $5,084.00. With a extraction of my lower front tooth ( see pic ) my question was since I got my teeth extracted the doctor said I will needs traditional braces on bottom of my teeth and I was wondering was this a good idea ? Doctor said traditional braces work better with extractions . Total treatment time is 18-21 months ..Please help in clarifying

How are things going for you?  It's been about four months…?

Thank you so much for starting your review here in the Damon community, and for posting a picture!  Our community is pretty small, so the odds that someone has gone through the exact thing you are are pretty low, but it's worth a try.  Normally, if a doctor prescribes a certain course of treatment, it is because they have had better results with that modality.  I know my orthodontist loves to use Damon braces for very difficult cases.  But your provider may have found that traditional braces work better for him.  You can always get a second opinion :)

Thanks do you think the treatment can be expedited in any way?

9 months on damon

We'll I see a difference now. Most drastic change has been my lower teeth closing gap and aligning my teeth .. I need about 12 months left or less to be done with treatment

My eldest daughter just got Damon!  I'd love to know how things have gone for you since July!

Things have gone pretty well my teeth need a little more work once my teeth are align then the doc will work on fixing over bite then we are done ☺️
My daughter has a 100% overbite as well--they put this weird stuff on her molars to keep her from biting off her braces.  But what is this 'little more work' that has to be done once your teeth are aligned?  Like bonding or something?  Do your teeth look any different now from how they did in July?
