In dental terms, the Damon System can help people with a number of problems from deep overbite, extreme crowding, jaw pain, jaw clicking to simple overlapping of front teeth. The Damon System means great results with shorter treatment times and fewer appointments. Damon benefits at a glance: • Greater comfort without the need for tightening • Extractions usually not needed • No headgear • More comfortable • Faster treatment • Its gentle and safe • Easy to keep teeth clean for better oral hygiene • What makes the Damon system different to other braces? The Damon System is designed to deliver a smile that will last for a lifetime. To create a superb new smile for you, your Damon Dentist will take a number of factors into account. This will include the shape of your face, your profile and what you will look like in your 40s, 50s and beyond. Your orthodontist will then design a brace for you that uses very light “shape memory” titanium wires to gently guide your teeth to their ideal position. The Damon System, does more than simply straighten your teeth; it acts as a passport to a beautiful smile and a new and happier you. How long does treatment take? Treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment. Shortest Damon treatment times will be around 6 months with more complex treatments lasting around a year. Is the Damon System safe? The Damon System is very gentle and very safe. It uses more biologically sensitive forces and far less friction than conventional braces to guide your teeth into their improved positions. Does it hurt? Damon braces don’t require tightening and so many people experience very little discomfort indeed during their treatment. The Damon System uses braces that have a unique slide mechanism. This allows your dentist to use far lighter forces to move your teeth into their correct positions. So not only is your treatment shorter, but using the Damon approach, it is also far more comfortable. Will I need to have any teeth pulled? Whereas with conventional braces, orthodontists are often forced to pull teeth in order to create space in a crowded mouth, The Damon System works with the body’s natural adaptive processes to create space naturally. This means that dentists using the Damon System can now treat most cases without having to remove a single tooth. So a Damon smile tends to be broader and more natural – and have a nicer profile. And what’s more, you’ll enjoy your new smile for many years because it will last as you age. Does the treatment require headgear or palatal expanders? The Damon System’s revolutionary approach uses very light forces to create space and develop beautiful natural arches. This makes it far easier and more comfortable to get the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of and (in most cases) this can all be achieved without the need for headgear or palatal expanders. How visible are the braces? Braces are much smaller than they were just a few years ago, and new materials are now used that make them very discreet. You can also choose to have white brackets fitted to your teeth which, although a little more expensive, makes your brace very discreet. What age groups is the treatment suitable for? The Damon System is suitable for patients of all ages. Adults can be treated quickly and easily, and can be assured of a really high-quality result.
