Advantages of Damon Braces explained by Surrey Damon, brace doctor

21 October 2013

The Surrey Damon system combines tieless braces with sophisticated high technology arch wires to deliver a virtually invisible treatment ress/orthodontics/#damon-bracesulting in straight teeth.

Research shows the Surrey Damon system adjusts the teeth up to six months faster than traditional braces or invisible aligners such as Invisalign.

1 With virtually invisible Surrey Damon braces, you don’t need to worry about lost or forgotten aligners, so treatment finishes without delay.

Surrey Damon clear braces are more comfortable than traditional braces. Damon braces are tieless, they don’t need to be “tightened” and are gentle on the teeth and tissues. Other type of braces use elastic bands that hold the archwires in place, these can slow down treatment and create discomfort.

Invisible aligners, like Invisalign braces, are effective at straightening crooked teeth but they are not for everyone, whereas Damon virtually invisible braces work 24/7 to align all the teeth and create the perfect smile. Therefore, Invisalign braces deliver more limited results than the Damon braces.

2 In fact; one study found that the mean accuracy of tooth movement with Invisalign braces was only 41%.

3 Clinical studies show that the elastic bands of conventional braces collect more bacteria and plaque and can lead to adverse gingival conditions. Unlike traditional clear braces, Surrey Damon Clear does not use elastic bands so your braces are easy to keep clean.

Accept no substitutes, Ask for Damon Clear.
