Your orthodontist can recommend braces for various reasons. Straighter teeth aren’t always for cosmetic purposes. The crevices created from crooked or crowded teeth can accumulate bacteria and food particles, which increase your risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Today, there are many options for braces, including Damon braces. These are an alternative to traditional braces that are easier to clean.
The Damon system is self-ligating, meaning they close around the wires to keep them attached. Damon braces don’t require any extra elastics, making them low-friction and gentler. Your teeth can move freely, quickly, and more comfortably with Damon braces.
The Damon System Advantage
There are numerous benefits to the Damon System. Traditional braces are typically uncomfortable and involve the removal of healthy teeth or expanders to create space. Damon braces can create a beautiful, full smile naturally by using biologically sensible forces to straighten your teeth. Other benefits include:
- Quicker treatment time
- Fewer orthodontist visits
- Easier to clean your teeth
- More comfortable
- Unobtrusive compared to metal braces
The Cleaning Process
It’s difficult to clean your teeth while wearing any type of braces. However, it’s essential to thoroughly clean your teeth every day to prevent tooth decay and enamel damage. Damon braces are easier to clean and will not cause any plaque or bacteria buildup. Patients will experience better oral hygiene and can spend less time cleaning their teeth compared to traditional braces.
