If you’re like many of the thousands of people in the UK who want to straighten their crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, then you probably think that all braces are the same. Many people think they look the same, they work the same, and metal braces are just what you must get for a straight smile.
But, in actuality, braces in Glasgow at Park Orthodontics have evolved greatly over the years, giving our patients more treatment options than ever. With Damon braces in Glasgow, our dentists can now correct even more orthodontic issues faster using just one system, and also help patients maintain their daily appearance while getting their perfect smile.
How Damon braces in Glasgow work
Damon braces use the same principles as traditional metal braces: brackets are attached to each tooth and through them goes a wire that gently guides the teeth into their proper positions. However, that’s where the similarities end.
With traditional braces, the wire is held onto the brackets using small elastic bands. This not only means that the wire has to apply more force to work, but it also inhibits the wire from moving the teeth as efficiently as possible, lengthening treatment times.
With Damon braces in Glasgow, the wires are held by the brackets themselves using a small metal latch. This enables the wires to move the teeth easily, which not only means they can use less force, but it also allows the teeth to move more quickly. Because of this, Damon braces in Glasgow are often able to straighten the teeth up to 30% faster than traditional orthodontics.
How do they look?
Many people find that one of the biggest drawbacks of traditional braces is that they overwhelm your smile. Damon braces have you covered there too with a clear option available. Rather than noticeable metal, Damon braces’ brackets are made of a clear plastic.
Their subtle appearance will be barely noticeable when you’re talking, smiling, or eating, enabling you to remain confident the entire time you’re getting a straighter smile.
Damon braces in Glasgow are faster, more comfortable, look better than traditional braces and they can give you the straighter smile you’ve always wanted.
