Fixed braces are one of the most common forms of braces currently used in Scotland. Patients, especially adults, have shied away from fixed brace designs in the past because they were clunky and ugly.
The Damon brace system is a market-leading, revolutionary blend of effective mechanics and comfort that can straighten your teeth in a fraction of the time it takes with typical metal braces.
Unlike conventional braces, the Damon System uses gentle forces designed to protect the health of your teeth and gums while in treatment. The Damon System achieves a smile that is more than just straight teeth—it provides you with a beautiful, natural smile.
The Damon System utilises a patented slide mechanism to connect archwires to the bracket while allowing the wire to move freely. Traditional braces use elastic ties to hold archwires in place. Unfortunately, elastic ties create friction which can slow treatment down. Elastics ties have also been shown to collect harmful bacteria. The Damon System reduces friction and improves oral hygiene by eliminating these elastic ties.
We’ll ask you to attend the practice for adjustments around every 6-10 weeks.
Damon Metal Braces
Damon systems are unlike traditional braces, these do not use any rubber bands or elastic rings to hold the orthodontic wire to the bracket. The wires are made of metal alloys and deliver a constant, gentle force to move teeth.
Damon Clear Braces
With Damon Clear, people may not even realize you are wearing braces. Unlike other clear braces with visible metal parts or elastic ties that can yellow during treatment, Damon Clear braces are virtually invisible. Damon Clear braces are resistant to staining and do not use elastic ties, providing a superior aesthetic solution for patients.
Incognito Lite Braces
The incognito system works out of sight, these hidden braces are placed behind your teeth, so they are invisible from the outside unlike traditional braces. You won’t need to wait until the braces come off to smile with confidence! Incognito Hidden Braces work behind the scenes – literally – so no one can see you are wearing braces. They are 100% customized for you, so you can be confident in the results.
Most patients who can be treated with conventional braces can also be treated with hidden braces. If you’ve had braces before but your front teeth have moved, ask your orthodontist about Incognito™ Lite Braces.
