Damon braces are one treatment our orthodontists specialise in here in Stockport. They’re known as ‘self-ligating’ braces because they adjust by themselves using a clever sliding mechanism. Our patients love that they can have a brace treatment that doesn’t involve elastic and metal ties – it gives you a lot more freedom!

Here are some scenarios where we might recommend Damon braces.

1) Patients looking for a discreet option

Damon braces can be made from tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets for a more discreet appearance. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, or undergoing treatment, they can help you feel a bit more like ”you”. Of course, if you want something that’s virtually invisible, you may want to look into some of our other options, such as Invisalign.

2) Patients wanting a more refined treatment

Traditional fixed braces are bulky and cumbersome, on account of wires, brackets, ties and elastics. Again, this helps make the treatment a little less noticeable, and the braces can also be customised to your smile through the use of Advanced Smile Design software. Modern braces have moved on a lot from the traditional models, with a focus on minimising the apparatus used on your smile.

3) Patients desiring a comfortable brace

Only light forces are applied with Damon braces, which means minimal pain or discomfort during treatment – if any pain at all! In fact, most patients don’t report any pain or discomfort. Of course, if you do experience any and this doesn’t go away over a few days, you can always get in touch with our team to find out how we can help.

We also offer interest-free finance to our patients to help spread the cost of treatment, which means even those on a tight budget may well be able to afford this superior orthodontic treatment. If you’re concerned or anxious about finances, talk to our team, and we’ll take a look for you.

Finally, if you’re ready to take the next step and start your Damon braces journey here in Stockport, give our orthodontists a call.
