What are Damon Braces?
Damon braces are a modern train track system that allows the teeth to move passively into place creating a full smile . There is less pain than with the old train track system as there is no tightening and there is no filing between the teeth unlike Invisalign.
Choosing the right brace for you is one of the most important decisions when deciding to straighten your teeth. At your consultation visit we shall explain the difference between all of the available treatments and guide you to making the best decision for your teeth.
A traintrack brace is the best way to fix any bite problems. When you have your initial consultation we shall inform you if you have any bite discrepancies that would benefit form the use of a traintrack brace. Any bite corrections are better treated comprehensively rather than with aligner therapy such as Invisalign.

Improve Your Health
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:
- Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in better oral health.
- Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which may help digestion.
- Aligned teeth create a better bite, which may reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.
- According to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but may lead to gum disease and tooth loss.
