Damon braces in Farnham at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic is an innovative new way to straighten the teeth quickly and comfortably. Traditional dental braces are comprised of large metal brackets and elastics. Damon braces in Farnham straighten teeth up to six months faster than traditional braces and leave teeth healthy and beautiful.
With some traditional style braces, a tooth or multiple teeth may need to be removed to create space. Damon braces can be affixed without the removal of healthy teeth, because this system uses the body's biological forces to create space naturally.
Why should I choose Damon braces?
Damon braces in Farnham utilise a unique type of technology to optimise the teeth straightening process. Traditional brace archwires are replaced with lighter, shape-memory, self-ligating wires that never need tightening. There are no elastics, no ties and no palate expanders. The Damon system reduces the amount of friction each tooth will experience by incorporating a sliding mechanism. Your teeth will move gently into alignment with minimal discomfort.
Damon braces in Farnham are passive and completely tie-less. The usual elastics and metals are replaced with unobtrusive sliders. Not only does this mean that there is nothing for your dentist to tighten, but it also means that there is less chafing on the lips and inner cheeks.
As well as this, traditional braces require a heavy archwire to link the brackets and assert pressure on the teeth. The Damon system replaces this with a hi-tech lightweight shape-memory wire. This means the wire is programmed to move the teeth quickly by working in conjunction with natural bodily forces. The Damon system is also available in clear brackets for those image-conscious patients.
Your facial aesthetics will also benefit with Damon braces. Our specialist in orthodontics will use a computer to project what the face might look like in 10, 20, and even 30 years. This is extremely useful when planning treatment, because changes to the teeth can affect the whole face.
Damon brace brackets are also much smaller than the brackets used in traditional braces. They are designed to reduce plaque build-up around the brackets and make home hygiene much easier. Plaque build-up can quickly lead to decay - especially for those wearing braces, which makes easy cleaning even more critical.
