Damon Braces are a system made from the same materials as traditional orthodontic braces. However, they do not require the use of elastics because they are self-ligating. With Damon Braces, the archwire is secured into the bracket slot directly, which means fewer appointments as well as less friction placed on the tooth structure.
Damon Braces are the same size as metal braces but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth to place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure on the tooth and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
Two Phase Orthodontics for Children is a specialized orthodontic process that involves two phases of treatment — with the first phase beginning when your child still has remaining primary (baby) teeth, and the adult teeth are beginning to erupt into the mouth. Phase two treatment begins once all of the adult teeth have erupted into the mouth. Damon Braces are often used during the second phase of treatment.
Many adults are seeking orthodontic treatment because they understand the importance of achieving and maintaining optimum oral health. The fact is, braces and orthodontics for adults can improve your smile and confidence, at almost any age!
