Damon braces are a popular choice

Metal braces (such as Damon) offer a successful result and are an excellent course of treatment among all demographics, including children, teenagers and adults, to straighten crooked teeth.

The Damon System uses ‘sliding doors’

Dr Nino Gullotta believes the Damon system of braces is different to others because it uses ‘passive self-ligating braces’, which means they remove the need for rubber bands around the braces.

This spells good news for patients because there is less friction, a shorter treatment time and an improved level of comfort.

Instead, Damon braces use ‘sliding doors’ to hold the wire in place, in turn allowing the teeth to move more freely and with less force. Damon braces are available in both metal and clear options.

Damon braces are also excellent for widening of the dental arches, which means the need for expanders and extractions is greatly reduced

Having straight teeth and proper jaw alignment can offer many more benefits than just aesthetic appeal, including proper chewing function. Straight teeth are also easier to clean and maintain, decreasing the chance of gum disease and tooth decay.

Orthodontic treatment plays a valuable role in improving both your dentaland general health and wellbeing.

Dr Nino Gullotta designs more than just a new smile, which is his patients’ main priority. He also helps enhance self-esteem and corrects the underlying dental problem, giving you healthier teeth, mouth and gums to improve your quality of life.

There is an orthodontic treatment, such as Damon metal braces, to suit your individual dental issues, so please talk with Dr Gullotta about which one is right for you.
