Damon Metal Braces
Choosing to have orthodontic treatment can be daunting. The staff at Winchester Orthodontic Practice not only want you to get the best results from your treatment, we also want you to have confidence during your treatment and reassurance that you have chosen the right treatment for you.
Damon braces are a very popular option that can be used to treat a range of orthodontic cases, including:
Crowding – teeth overlap or very close together
Spacing – gaps between teeth
Overbite – top teeth overlap too far
Overjet – protruding front teeth
Underbite – lower teeth overlap the top teeth
Crossbite – teeth bite not lined up
Openbite – Teeth don’t meet when bite
Misplaced midline – centre lines of upper and lower teeth don’t align
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE DAMON METAL BRACES?
Damon metal has many benefits that include:
The brackets are smaller than traditional braces
There is no need for elastic or metal ‘ties’ which attract plaque
Doesn’t always require teeth to be extracted
Comfortable and easy to clean
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I START TREATMENT?
Once you have been in for your free consultation to assess the situation of your teeth and you have found out if Damon braces are an option, we will take X-Rays and get a good idea of the overall health of your teeth and jaw. From this, the length of treatment time to see desired results can be determined.
Once you begin treatment with Damon braces, we will assess your progress every 6 to 8 weeks and adjust the wires regularly. The wires that move your teeth use a low-friction force. This means much less discomfort and inconvenience for you.
