It is not uncommon for people to have crooked teeth. It is also not uncommon for people to be reluctant to get traditional metal braces. Not only are they very noticeable in the mouth, but they can also be uncomfortable and difficult to keep clean. Although clear aligners are a popular option, many people are in the market for Invisalign® alternatives. This is where the Damon® system comes into play.
What is the Damon® System?
The most important thing to know about the Damon® system is that it uses passive self-ligating braces. This allows your teeth to move into place without all of the friction. Not only does this reduce treatment time, but it is also much more comfortable. This is one of the biggest reasons it is one of the most popular Invisalign® alternatives out there today.
Conventional braces require elastic ties. These ties are notorious for trapping food particles and plaque in the teeth, making it very difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. This is no issue for the Damon® system due to the fact that there are no elastic ties involved.
Why Choose This Option Over Other Invisalign® Alternatives?
There are many benefits that the Damon® system has over other options. Some of the highlights include:
- Fewer adjustments are needed than with traditional braces.
- The lack of friction makes the entire process more comfortable.
- The Damon® system works faster than invisible aligners and traditional braces.
- Treatment typically does not require tooth extraction or the use of rapid palatal expanders.
- Damon® braces are available with clear brackets for subtle tooth straightening.
Not only does the Damon® system straighten your teeth, but it also improves the overall aesthetics of the face. It can make your smile look wider, fuller, and more inviting. It is great for bringing balance to the face, particularly the cheeks. Improving your facial profile can make you look younger and boost your self-esteem.
Who is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Both teens and adults can benefit from Damon® braces. Whether you are looking into Invisalign® alternatives for your child or yourself, know that this option can help. On top of improving your self-esteem, it can greatly increase the health of your mouth and gums.
