Teeth Straightening in Ruislip
What are Damon Braces in Ruislip?
Damon braces are a type of fixed brace which are adhered to your teeth for the duration of your treatment. There are several differences between Damon braces and the traditional fixed metal braces.
With traditional fixed braces, small elastic bands are often used to hold the orthodontic wire in position.
Damon braces are self-ligating braces which means that elastics are not used. Instead, a clip mechanism holds the wire in place which allows for more movement and less friction as the teeth move. This in turn means that teeth straightening is more comfortable.
Damon braces also uses a high-tech memory arch wire which requires less tightening than traditional braces by your dentist in Ruislip.
Available with either clear brackets or metal brackets, Damon braces are often chosen by patients in Ruislip, Ickenham, Pinner, Uxbridge Harrow, Northwood and London because they are inconspicuous.
Damon braces can be used to treat minor through to severe orthodontic cases and they can:
- Straighten crooked teeth
