The revolutionary Damon braces received a 100 percent “worth it” rating on one of the most popular review sites for health products and tools, Real Self. Damon braces are known for being very comfortable, to work quickly and offering consistent results. However, what potential new patients really want to know is if these types of braces are worth it for them. Getting the best orthodontic match, whether it’s Damon braces, regular braces or Invisalign, will take some research and in-person consultations. An orthodontist can point you in the right direction depending on your goals and the current state of your mouth and teeth.

For the reviewers on this site, though, they wouldn’t have chosen anything but Damon. According to one reviewer from Lakewood, CO, “My bottom teeth are totally straight. It’s amazing how fast things are moving.” The Damon system is renowned for offering relatively fast results, particularly compared to traditional braces. However, that doesn’t mean every patient will (or should) speed through the process. Your orthodontist will tell you a realistic timeline for your results.

(Almost) Instant Gratification

There were many reviewers who shared their surprise at getting such quick results. A 20-year-old from Garland, TX says she chose Damon because, “I wanted quicker results. (I was) getting married soon and wanted perfect teeth for my big day.” When there is a special event on the horizon, many people start looking more critically at their teeth. Getting straighter, healthier and whiter teeth before a day that will be captured forever is a priority for many.

Another option for brides and grooms to be is Invisalign, which is a system of sets that slowly shift teeth into place. Unlike braces, including Damon, Invisalign can be easily taken out for eating and special events. However, those who plan well in advance may be able to enjoy the swiftness of Damon before the big event. Work with your orthodontist to see which approach is best for you.

Dreams Coming True

Another reviewer from San Jose, CA says, “I’ve wanted braces my entire life, since I was probably 12.” Luckily for this patient and others like her, there’s been an increase in adults getting braces (including celebrities). Braces no longer carry the geek stigma they used to, and in many cases adults are just now able to afford the braces they’ve always wanted. Perhaps as a child, it wasn’t in the family budget.

There are many things to consider with braces, including Damon vs. traditional. However, after weighing the benefits, many patients go with Damon because of increased comfort and faster results.
