brackets are similar to conventional braces; you still have
metal brackets bonded to your teeth and a wire is used to
align your teeth. Like conventional braces, the Damon system
can be used to treat even the most severe cases of crowding,
overbites, underbites, and even crossbites. The difference
is that the Damon brackets are smaller and hold the wire
without the use of elastics.
side-by-side with conventional metal braces, the
Damon difference is quite apparent.
The Damon brackets
are a great way to achieve your most beautiful and esthetic
smile in less time and with greater comfort than other treatments
or even conventional braces. Damon brackets are more comfortable
than conventional braces because the brackets are smaller
and therefore more comfortable against your lips and cheeks.
Because they are smaller, they are also less noticeable.
are the Advantages of the Damon System of Braces?
brackets are also 'self ligating.' Conventional
braces hold the wire into the brackets with individual
elastics. This causes tension on the wire that moves
your teeth. One problem that arises is that the
elastics eventually get loose; therefore you must
visit Dr. Anshu at least once a month to change
the elastics and create more force.
The other problem with conventional braces is that even
if we use silver elastics, which are the most esthetic,
the elastics still add more 'metal' to the look of your
smile. The Damon brackets do not need elastics to hold the
wire in place; instead, Damon braces use a slide mechanism
to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely,
quickly and comfortably.
'self ligating' system means that you will not have
to come to Dr. Anshu's office as often and that
a more even tension is placed on your teeth throughout
your treatment. Office visits are still necessary
to change the wire and to make sure that the brackets
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable
and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties
that can collect plaque, Damon braces make dental
hygiene easier during treatment.
With the Damon System of braces, treatment time is typically
6 months shorter than with conventional braces. And shorter
treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful
smile...faster. You may be surprised at how fast.
This is a "must visit" if you are going to India for any medical treatment....
