My daughter had early treatment when she was 8 and wore a few braces on her top teeth for nearly two years. Now she needs to have full braces back on. I asked the orthodontist the difference between Damon and traditional, and he said the Damon only shorten treatment by about a month and are no more comfortable. Any experience with this? Seems to contradict what I have read other places, but possibly there wouldn't be a difference due to the lengthy early treatment she had?
