Damon braces offer increased comfort and decreased treatment time compared to traditional metal braces. By using self-ligating brackets that let the archwires move freely, Damon braces control the pressure applied to teeth. The Damon system also includes options for ceramic brackets that are less visible than brackets made of metal, creating an alternative to invisible braces for patients interested in discretion. Many patients in all age groups are eligible to receive this treatment from our East Los Angeles Damon braces expert.
Damon braces offer a broad range of advantages to patients. In terms of treatment time, Damon braces often complete correction in four to six months less than conventional braces. The wider wires used with Damon braces can be aesthetically superior even for patients who opt for metal brackets. Like traditional braces, Damon braces can correct virtually all common types of bite irregularities. Furthermore, dental extraction and palatal expanders are rarely necessary. Finally, patients who get Damon braces need fewer appointments to our expert in Damon braces in East Los Angeles for wire tightening and experience less discomfort after those appointments.

Damon braces are similar to traditional braces in their basic structure, making the treatment process similar. To begin, patients visit our East Los Angeles Damon braces expert for a consultation to identify requirements as well as to discuss treatment goals and how the corrective process works.

Next, our orthodontist fits the braces to the teeth and schedules regular appointments to monitor progress and tighten the archwires until treatment is complete.
