Damon braces are smaller and more comfortable than conventional braces, making them suitable for patients of all ages. Unlike traditional braces, Damon braces are self-ligating, resulting in less pressure on the teeth. Because there’s a sliding mechanism in each brace, there is no need to add wires or elastics, which often cause irritation.
In addition, the Damon braces are less prone to building up tartar than traditional braces. Consequently, cleanings at the dentist are much easier. Treatment times with Damon braces are generally shorter and fewer dentist appointments are needed for adjustments. Finally, since Damon braces are more effective than conventional ones, younger patients can often avoid tooth extractions.
