Damon Braces

How do Damon Orthodontic braces differ from conventional braces?

The Damon system uses a unique slide mechanism that minimises the friction and binding associated with conventional braces. With the Damon System teeth align more quickly and comfortably. Most cases can be treated without extractions. No one likes to have teeth removed and a smile with a full display of teeth often produces a broader, natural smile and nicer profile. With the Damon System treatment time is typically shorter than with conventional braces, and shorter treatment times means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile faster. You may be surprised at how fast. The days of having braces tightened are over. Damon System braces have a unique slide mechanism that reduces pressure on your teeth and allows them to move comfortably to their centre positions.

At Integrated Dentalcare not only do we align the teeth but we also look at the postural relationship of the jaws to the rest of the body. The postural evaluation is extremely important because an altered biomechanical relationship will always produce postural accommodations. The bite plane and eye plane need to be parallel and level with the ground otherwise receptors in the neck and jaw are triggered and the body will make adaptations which are not normally favourable. Not only does the body react to jaw misalignments but the head also makes accommodations which is why some people have one eye higher than the other and one cheekbone more prominent than the other.

Most malocclusions (poor bites) do not ‘come first’ but are a result of deeper underlying patterns of dysfunction in the entire being. It is through dental orthopaedics/orthodontics that we can introduce long-term gentle physiological forces than can create bony, electromagnetic and neurological changes. Damon braces compliment this approach because their force is light and gentle.

This revolutionary new approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment.
