The Damon system is an orthodontic treatment that uses “self-ligating” braces. This means that the brackets themselves hold the wire in place without the need for elastics or metal ties. Most patients dread the days when their orthodontists tighten their braces. Because the Damon system is a tieless technology, there is more freedom of movement and the need for tightening is eliminated.
Benefits of Damon Braces
- Unlike traditional braces that are tied in with elastics which cause friction and pressure, Damon braces allows teeth to move freely, quickly and comfortably.
- Damon braces are designed to be comfortable and easy to clean. Without the elastic ties which tend to attract and collect plaque, it is easier for you to brush and keep your teeth clean.
- The Damon system also comes in discreet, clear brackets so that patients feel less self-conscious when wearing them.
- Damon braces requires fewer appointments for adjustments and reduced treatment time
