Damon braces also known as “Speed Braces”, these Self-Ligating Metal Braces are Perfect for Children

Braces that will give you excellent results in the shortest possible time, with the least pain possible, also referred to as “speed braces” are available at Artiste Studios.


Damon Braces

These tiny braces are designed to make your treatment faster and less painful than regular braces. When placed on your teeth these braces can reduce your treatment time by up to 6 months! The ideal complement to your first phase of interceptive treatment in order to get the best results.


Damon brackets work faster than other types of appliance due to the very low friction between the bracket and the wire. The Damon system allows non-extraction treatment in the majority of cases. Children and their parents keen for the fastest treatment possible often select this appliance even though there is a little more metal visible than porcelain brackets.


What are the Advantages of the Damon System of Braces?

The Damon brackets are a great way to achieve a more beautiful and aesthetic smile in less time and with greater comfort than other treatments or even conventional braces. Damon brackets are more comfortable against your lips and cheeks than conventional braces and less noticeable because the brackets are smaller.


Damon brackets are also 'self ligating.' Conventional braces hold the wire into the brackets with individual elastics. This causes tension on the wire that moves your teeth. One problem that arises is that the elastics eventually get loose; therefore you must visit your orthodontist at least once a month to change the elastics and create more force.


The other inconvenience with conventional braces is that even if we use silver elastics, which are the most aesthetic, the elastics still add more 'metal' to the look of your smile. The Damon brackets do not need elastics to hold the wire in place; instead, Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.


This 'self ligating' system means that you will not have to come to see the orthodontist as often and that a more even tension is placed on your teeth throughout your treatment. Visits are still necessary to change the wire and to make sure that the brackets are clean.


Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties that can collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easier during treatment.


With the Damon System of braces, treatment time is typically 6 months shorter than with conventional braces. And shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile...faster. You may be surprised at how fast.
