Crooked teeth can affect both the appearance and the proper function of the teeth. Misaligned teeth makes the smile look awkward or unhealthy, especially if the crooked teeth are located in an area that is visible when one smiles, or when the mouth is opened. Improper teeth alignment also makes it harder to maintain proper oral hygiene; overlapping or crooked teeth are difficult to clean, increasing the risk of dental problem development. Orthodontics treatments have the goal of moving teeth into a straighter, more properly aligned position. Teeth aesthetics and function are greatly improved when teeth are moved into proper alignment. The smile will look healthier and more attractive, while the straighter teeth will be much easier to clean to maintain good oral hygiene. Speech can also be improved with orthodontics, which can eliminate problems with lisping caused by misaligned teeth. Other problems such as bruxism and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are similarly improved with the help of orthodontics. Damon Braces for Teeth Straightening Damon Braces offer an advanced method of moving teeth into better alignment. This orthodontic system has a number of advantages over conventional orthodontic braces especially when it comes to patient comfort. Damon Braces are self-ligating, which means that there is no need for elastic ties or wires used in traditional metal braces. The use of these elastic ties and wires results in a longer treatment period; without these parts, the Damon Braces work in efficiently moving the teeth into a straighter position without the discomfort and pain. The lighter forces used in this system also contributes to a more comfortable orthodontic treatment. Unlike conventional orthodontic braces that cause a great deal of pain after they have been adjusted, Damon Braces use lighter forces with passive ligation to keep the pain and discomfort at a minimum. There are fewer adjustments needed with Damon Braces, so the number of dental visits (for adjustments) is significantly less compared to a conventional braces treatment. The orthodontic improvements can be seen in shorter period of time when Damon Braces are used, compared to the longer period needed to complete a traditional dental braces treatment. Damon Braces offer a discreet way of straightening the teeth through the use of clear brackets that are almost invisible to others; the orthodontic treatment can proceed without conspicuous metal parts, and visible wires elastic ties. The elimination of these wires and elastic ties – where plaque and bacteria can build up – makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the entire orthodontic treatment with Damon Braces.
