Damon braces

Damon braces are a self-ligating fixed brace used for teeth straightening. There is the option of having metal damon fixed braces or ceramic tooth coloured damon fixed braces. Both types have the same functionality with the only difference being the visibility of the brace.

Why choose Damon braces?

  • Self ligating design
    Wires are held in place with a self ligating gate on the bracket that opens and closes. This design eliminates the traditional need for elastics and therefore tooth movement has a lower level of friction.
  • Comfort
    Damon brackets have more rounded edges that patients find comfortable with less ulceration of the lips and cheeks. The absence of elastics means that less pressure is exerted on the teeth and this in turn reduces tooth movement pain.
  • Fewer appointments
    One of the main advantages of damon braces is that they require less frequent appointments with the orthodontist compared to traditional braces
  • Efficient tooth movement
    The reduced friction in the system results in efficiency in the tooth movements achieved
  • Aesthetic option
    Damon braces can either be made of metal or a more aesthetic tooth coloured ceramic bracket

What is the cost of Damon braces?
