Clunky, painful braces—the ones that come to mind when you hear “metal mouth”—are a thing of the past. There are many different options on the market now for orthodontic treatment, including updated versions of traditional braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligners. One of the most advanced, efficient options to-date is the Damon Bracket System.
What is the Damon System?
Damon braces are the most cutting edge, highest-end self-ligating bracket currently on the market. Self-ligating brackets use doors that lock to hold the wire in place rather than ties, and they use light, constant forces to move teeth more naturally.
The benefits of the Damon Bracket System
- They are tieless. As mentioned, Damon braces do not use ties to hold the wire to the brackets. This makes them easier to clean, as the ties on traditional braces tend to foster bacteria growth. Also, patients with Damon braces will have fewer appointments, since they will not need to come in for “reties.”
- Light, natural forces. The self-ligating system allows for the braces to move teeth using less force than traditional braces while being more efficient. This means that treatment is shorter and more comfortable for patients than ever before.
- Sleeker appearance. Damon braces are sleeker and less bulky in appearance compared to traditional braces. Since there are no ties, they tend to be more discreet (however, some kids request the colorful ties, so we put them on the front teeth just for fun!). Additionally, Damon braces come in a clear version that is even less noticeable.
- Less extractions. At our office, we pair the Damon Bracket System with memory wires, which also use light and constant forces to help guide teeth into place. This combination allows us to treat patients more comfortably, and with fewer tooth extractions.
