If you’re looking for the best dental provider for Damon braces Melbourne clients can trust, book your consultation with Victoria Street Dental today.
Damon braces are self-ligating, whereby each individual brace is connected by an archwire. They are much gentler on the teeth and sensitive mouth tissue, allowing for a faster and more comfortable treatment overall. Traditional braces use elastic brands or ties to hold the wires and brackets tightly in place, which creates pressure and tension on the teeth. The design of Damon braces on the other hand will make them look less noticeable, and much more comfortable to wear in the long term. They also allow for better oral hygiene as they attract less plaque and make brushing and flossing easier.
Smaller, Cleaner Damon Braces For Less Tooth Pain
In long-term dental care, it’s worthwhile to consider easier maintenance alternatives and reducing pain throughout your treatment. Due to their design, Damon braces are reported to put less pressure and friction on the teeth, making them a more comfortable option for brace treatments. It improves patient experience as it provides less discomfort in comparison to traditional braces. In appearance, they are also smaller and more aesthetically pleasing than conventional braces.
Unlike most braces, Damon braces do not use visible metal brackets or elastic ties that will yellow over time. While dark-coloured drinks like coffee, tea, red wine and soda tend to stain the bands and brackets of traditional braces, Damon braces won’t present the same issue. They’re more resistant to staining throughout your entire treatment so you can eat or drink freely without feeling self-conscious.
When Should You Get Braces
While you can correct your teeth alignment at any time, the ideal age for braces is early adolescence or between the ages of 10 and 14. This is because preteens and young teenagers have all if not most of their adult teeth in place, but their softer jawbone tissue is still developing and are thus quite susceptible to repositioning.
Treat A Wide Range Of Issues With Damon Braces
Damon braces allow for less pain as less pressure is required when they are adjusted. They are also easier to clean, less prone to plaque build up and staining. Furthermore, they offer a more cosmetically appealing appearance and faster results due to their design. Their innovative slide mechanism not only moves the teeth more quickly and comfortably in comparison to conventional braces, but is also suitable for various teeth straightening treatments. This includes treating issues such as underbites, overbites and crossbites.
