If you think braces couldn’t get any better, think again. Damon braces are orthodontic treatments that perfect your teeth alignment without the need for wires and elastics.
Damon clear braces, also called self-ligating braces, use a slide mechanism that links the wires to brackets, allowing them to move naturally with the teeth during alignment.
It’s your braces doing all the work for you, minimizing the need for in-office tightening! Get the best orthodontic care and services for Damon braces at Micris Dental Clinic.
Damon braces make use of the Damon System technology which combines tieless brackets and smart-designed archwires designed to facilitate alignment with fast and satisfying results.
With the Damon System, teeth move with ease to enhance your facial structure without the need for extractions or palatal expanders. Damon system braces use a “passive” slide mechanism to keep the archwires within the bracket and allow them to move freely.
Damon clear braces are specially custom-made for you to give you a lovely smile that lasts not just for a few years, but a lifetime. The treatment for Damon braces is also much faster compared to traditional ones. Conventional braces that use clips or elastics that bind the archwires in place, creating friction and pressure that slow down the treatment.
During your initial consultation, our European board-certified orthodontist will take into account not just your teeth condition but also your facial structure and profile to anticipate how you will look like in your 40s, 50s and beyond.
Unlike some so-called invisible braces, Damon system braces are less prone to staining and discoloration all throughout the treatment process. Without any elastic ties that can easily trap food particles, your braces turning yellow over time are avoided.
With materials that are very small, discreet, and virtually invisible, it’s hard to tell that you’re even wearing braces with Damon clear. This makes these braces among the most preferred orthodontic treatment.
Damon clear braces are made of Polycrystalline alumina (PCA) ceramic proven to be durable, aesthetically appealing, and stain-resistant.
Patients who use Damon clear braces have experienced little to no discomfort throughout the treatment. The Damon System’s slide mechanism makes it possible to apply less pressure to move the teeth, ensuring comfort and ease.
Ligating means to “tie up”, so Damon system braces self-ligating technology uses a spring clip in each bracket to hold the wire in place. These clips apply pressure on the teeth and are closed to keep the wire locked in, which makes rubber bands unnecessary and in-office adjustments are eliminated
Beyond teeth straightening, Damon braces ensure that your arch is in the right shape. A narrow arch can cause snoring and force you to breathe through your mouth. Breathing through the mouth for hours can cause bacteria growth that can result in the appearance of plaque on your teeth.
With properly aligned teeth, cleaning the mouth becomes easier, chewing food is more efficient, and strain on your bones and tissues are reduced. At Micris Dental Clinic, we make sure that our orthodontic services are more than just teeth straightening but also promote overall oral health.
Treatment for Damon system braces usually ranges from 12-18 months depending on the orthodontic case, which is 3-4 months faster than traditional braces.
Among the factors that can affect the length of the treatment are the number of teeth that need movement, how far they need to be moved, and the density of your bone. Make sure you consult with one of our specialist orthodontists to set the right expectations on the procedure and cost of your treatment.
For traditional braces, your orthodontist may need to pull some teeth out to make room for crowded teeth. With Damon system braces, that space is created naturally so most cases need not have extraction.
While Damon clear braces are made of stain-resistant material, it is still important to keep them clean all the time. Here are some tips to keep your Damon system braces clean:
The cost of Damon braces depends on your orthodontic condition and the length of the treatment needed. Your orthodontist will discuss with you the actual cost of the treatment on the day of your consultation.
