Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Eric Wang, offers a variety of orthodontic treatment options to meet the needs of his patients at the Smile Design Studio, a dental clinic located in Mosman Park and Perth WA. One such treatment is Damon Braces, which differ from traditional braces in several ways.

As Dr. Wang explains, “Damon braces differ from traditional or conventional braces in that it uses a technology known as passive self-ligation. This allows the use of a much lighter force with less friction on the teeth in order to move them.”

One of his recent patients, a young man named Samson, had the Damon Braces system to correct gaps between his teeth as well as a narrow arch in his jaw. The Damon system provides the ability to make visible changes for medical (functional) as well as cosmetic reasons. When asked how this is achieved, the doctor said “because of the light forces we are able to actually change the way in which the jaws are shaped. So we can develop arches and we can create space without having to remove any teeth in order to do so.

When asked about the treatment time for Damon braces compared to the traditional brackets, Dr Wang replied, “Most Damon cases are finished in around 18 months compared to traditional braces which may take two to three years to complete.”

Many patients in traditional braces experience some degree pain or discomfort due to the elastics used in the procedure and the heavier forces and friction of the teeth. Dr Wang noted that one of the reasons for a faster treatment duration: “Having a lighter force on the teeth really presents us with the advantages that Damon braces have and that allows us to have a much faster treatment time.”

Some patients are concerned about risks with orthodontic treatment, such as root damage. “There are less risks involved such as teeth dying or roots of the teeth becoming shortened as a result of heavy forces placed on those teeth” notes Dr. Wang.
