The thought of being able to straighten your teeth without having to put up with a mouthful of metal wires and brackets seemed like a pipe dream until recently. Thanks to advances in dental technology, a new device for straightening your teeth discreetly is now available in the United Kingdom. Already hugely popular in the United States, read on to find out more about Damon braces and what they can do for you and your smile.
Aside from the aesthetics of having a smile compromised by traditional metal braces, the treatment itself could also last a very long time. Some patients have to wear traditional braces for as long as three years. Patients who choose Damon braces might shave six months off the usual treatment time.
The clear material used to make Damon braces mean that they are barely noticeable so there need be no more awkward social situations as you try to hide your mouth. The benefits in terms of confidence are massive, especially for teenagers who might feel awkward about their appearance anyway.
Damon braces are also far more comfortable than traditional braces because there is no tightening involved which can cause the wearer pain and discomfort. This also means that they are much easier to keep clean than their traditional counterpart and you won’t have to worry about food getting trapped and giving you bad breath.
Although childhood is the best time for wearing any brace, Damon braces are suitable for patients of all ages who have issues with teeth alignment. If your Weybridge dentist is registered with Damon then you might be able to start your life-changing treatment immediately and reap the benefits of having a perfectly straight smile.
