Are Damon Braces Right For You?

Are you looking into braces to straighten your wonky teeth, close a gappy smile or correct a jaw problem? Whatever the scenario, our expert orthodontists can help. Based here in Stockport, we work hard to create functional smiles with an attractive aesthetic, so you can feel comfortable and confident whether you’re smiling, laughing, eating or chewing.

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.
