Hidden braces

Damon braces

What are damon braces?

Damon braces are an advanced system that straightens teeth in a way that is faster and more comfortable than standard braces. They are a suitable treatment for both adult and child patients, that drastically improve your smile; and in most cases, without having to remove any teeth.

The key thing about the Damon System is not just the revolutionary braces and wires, it is a whole new way of looking at orthodontic treatment. Traditional orthodontic treatments often require the removal of perfectly healthy teeth, or alternatively they have to use palatal expanders to move teeth quickly to make room in the mouth.

These conventional treatments are much more painful, more drawn out, and can end up leaving the patient with orthodontic problems which they didn’t have to start with. Damon braces on the other hand give patients natural smiles which are improved gently, using light forces that are specifically developed to enhance the whole face without causing any damage to previously unaffected areas.

Damon braces are designed to be more discrete, more comfortable and easier to clean than normal braces. The brackets are smaller, so they are more aesthetically pleasing and they are also available as clear brackets for the more image conscious patients. Damon braces don’t use the conventional elastic ties to keep them in place (which often attract and collect plaque). This makes dental hygiene easier to maintain during the treatment.

Damon braces use a combination of 3 main elements to make treatment faster with fewer appointments, less pain, and really effective results.

These three components are:

  • Gentle braces which move teeth gently and do not require tightening in the course of treatment
  • Lightweight shape-memory wires which encourage teeth to move quicker and which need to be adjusted less often
  • No need to remove teeth

Traditional braces are kept in place with elastics, which cause friction and pressure on the teeth and make treatment slower and less comfortable. Instead, Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

Incognito braces

What are Incognito braces?

Incognito braces are the invisible and modern lingual bracket system which offers a truly discrete teeth straightening experience. Each brace bracket is hidden on the back of each tooth, so that from the front they remain completely invisible. This means that you are free to go about your daily life without being hindered by other people’s perceptions of your braces.

The brackets are not shaped like conventional brace brackets. This means that they do not stick out far past your actual tooth back, meaning it will only be a very short time after they are fitted before you are able to eat and speak normally again.

Because Incognito braces are moulded for the individual, they are suitable for patients of any age. They can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic problems including teeth spacing issues, crooked teeth and overlapping teeth.

How will Incognito braces benefit me?

Because they are hidden behind your teeth, they are extremely discrete. People really won’t be able to tell that you are wearing braces at all.

Each Incognito bracket is custom made to fit your teeth precisely so they are much more comfortable than traditional braces. They will disrupt your lifestyle much less as it will be hardly any time before you can eat and speak as normal

The brackets fit to the back of your teeth meaning there is no risk that when the brackets are removed the front surfaces of the teeth will be damaged. And lastly, effective results are seen in a much shorter time period.
