Metal Braces

Damon Braces for teens have evolved far beyond traditional metal braces. The Damon System uses a self-ligating mechanism that holds the wire onto the bracket – without relying on irritating elastic ties. Plus, they’re more compact and subtle than traditional teen braces!

Benefits of Braces for Teens

A beautiful smile is one of your most important assets! Teen braces have obvious aesthetic perks, helping your teen feel more comfortable and confident in their daily life. But did you know teen braces also have health benefits?

Teen braces can help solve many oral health issues, including crowding and excess spacing. Braces for teens can even minimize the need for extractions, improve bite patterns, improve jaw growth, and help speech/chewing difficulties.

Are Braces Right For My Teen?

Adolescence is an ideal time to get braces, as your teen’s teeth and jaw are still developing. This means we can properly align the teeth before they reach adulthood, and prevent dental problems in the future.

If you notice any of the following signs in your teen, it’s time to take them for an orthodontic consultation:

  • Crowding
  • Spaced out teeth
  • Overbite, underbite, or crossbite
  • Protruding teeth
  • Oral hygiene problems
  • Frequent biting of the cheek and tongue
  • Jaw problems
  • Difficulty chewing or speaking
