The Benefits of Damon Braces

Have you ever heard of Damon braces? These are interesting alternatives to traditional metal braces. They could be particularly beneficial to children and adolescents due to their unique configuration. Let us take a look at how Damon braces function before discussing some of their primary benefits. 

Damon Braces at a Glance

As you might have guessed, Damon braces can help to straighten teeth and to create a stunning smile. Unlike traditional approaches, Damon braces are clear brackets as opposed to metal braces — so they’re less visible. 

Also, there are no rubber bands involved, so there’s less pain and discomfort. Furthermore, a lack of rubber bands will allow children to brush and floss without problem. 

Now that we have appreciated the finer points, let’s list three important takeaways:

  • As the brackets are clear, they are much less visible to the naked eye.
  • Brushing teeth and cleaning the brackets are easy. 
  • Damon braces tend to be more comfortable when compared to their traditional metal braces.

Speak with a dentist or orthodontist to learn if Damon braces are the right options for your child.

“If you have a child who needs orthodontic treatment, they may not be thrilled about having traditional braces.”
