As with traditional metal braces, there are several variations of self-ligating braces. They use small metal clips to keep the wire in place instead of elastic bands - self-ligating means that the bracket can basically tie itself to the archwire.
Self-ligating braces are designed to be more comfortable and can reduce treatment times because the wires don't need to be tightened at each appointment.
The Damon system allows for teeth to move more quickly and with a lighter force than with a traditional metal brace. The Damon System makes space naturally for any crowded teeth by gently expanding the dental arches and therefore can prevent the need for extraction which occurs with more traditional methods.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean.
