Overview of

Dental Damon Braces

in Thailand

Damon braces are a faster, more comfortable, and less apparent alternative to conventional braces, with a built-in sliding mechanism that holds the archwire in place, allowing teeth to be repositioned in a quick yet gentle manner, thanks to low-friction forces.

These self-ligating devices do not make use of elastic bands, which means there is less chance for food debris to remain stuck in your braces, reducing the risk of plaque buildup. The absence of these bands also means that fewer appointments to the dentist are required for adjustments.

Since Damon braces work faster in comparison to their conventional counterparts, treatment time is reduced, and results can be seen in as little as 10 weeks. However, as with all braces, this depends on factors such as your orthodontic profile and how well your teeth respond to the treatment. How fast results may be seen also depends on cell growth, with children having a faster cell turnover than adults. Therefore, results may not be seen as quickly for those beyond a certain age.

Visible changes in your facial appearance can be noticed during the initial stages of treatment as your dental arch widens due to the repositioning of your teeth. You may also notice that your cheek contours have become a lot smoother, enhancing your profile and giving you a more youthful look.

  • upper front teeth that protrude outward, i.e. an overjet

  • your facial appearance will be improved as your teeth is repositioned and straightened.
  • most orthodontic plans cover Damon braces.

  • more expensive compared to traditional braces.

How it works:

Dental Damon Braces

While the differences between Damon braces and traditional braces may be small, the effects are quite significant, with the former using a unique mechanism to reposition your teeth. This mechanism involves slide brackets attached to a memory wire that move your teeth gradually over time with low-friction forces, reducing the pressure patients experience with conventional elastic bands. This, of course, lessens the pain and discomfort for patients, and eliminates the need for tooth extractions or palatal expanders in many cases.

Preparation before

Dental Damon Braces

Pre - treatment

Your dentist will go over your medical history, conduct a clinical exam, and may ask you to undergo some tests, such as digital X-ray imaging. In doing so, your dentist will be able to determine your eligibility for orthodontics.

Recovery after

Dental Damon Braces

Post - treatment

Although no recovery time is required after braces placement, some mild sensitivity or discomfort may be felt for a few days post-treatment. This can be alleviated by taking over-the-counter medication when necessary, or by applying dental wax to areas experiencing irritation as a result of the braces.

While not very common, possible side effects may include irritation, tooth and jaw pain. These will gradually subside as your oral cavity adjusts to the presence of the braces. Your dentist will keep you informed should any medications be taken to counter these effects.

FAQs:

Dental Damon Braces

Who are candidates for Damon braces?

So long as your adult teeth have fully erupted, Damon braces are suitable for nearly everyone. These braces are sometimes referred to as “fast braces” or “speed braces” due to the rate at which they reposition teeth when compared to conventional braces and the fact that not many visits are required to your orthodontist. This makes Damon braces ideal for individuals who have a frequently busy schedule and need quicker results.

What’s the difference between Damon braces and Invisalign?

Design is the major difference between Damon braces and Invisalign, with the former using brackets and wires and the latter employing clear aligner trays that reposition your teeth. These aligner trays are virtually invisible and can be removed, and treatment time with Invisalign is also quicker than conventional braces.

The major drawback of this clear aligner system is that it cannot be used to treat every orthodontic condition, making traditional or self-litigating braces the better option for individuals who have severe misalignment issues. Regardless, the main goal of both teeth straightening systems is to give you a straighter, better-looking smile.

Will my teeth hurt after adjustments?

Since the design of Damon braces makes use of a sliding mechanism that applies very low-friction forces to reposition teeth, very little discomfort may be experienced but the intensity is bearable when compared to conventional braces.

Do Damon braces hurt more than traditional braces and Invisalign?

It’s normal to feel a little discomfort with all types of braces as the pain you may experience is a result of your teeth being repositioned and has very little to do with the design of the system, regardless of whether your treatment involves traditional braces, Damon braces, or Invisalign.

Soreness may be experienced during the first couple of days after braces placement, which can be clearly felt while eating.

To counter this, stick to soft foods like mashed potatoes, yogurt, soup, and pudding, until the pain alleviates well enough for you to go back to enjoying your favorite foods. Your oral cavity may also feel slightly strange as the soft oral tissues gradually adjust to your braces over time.
