Damon braces are similar to other orthodontic methods used to straighten teeth. The main difference between this approach and others is how they straighten teeth. Braces use archwires and brackets to shift teeth. Nevertheless, unlike traditional braces, Damon braces use a self-ligating technology to link archwires to brackets rather than elastic ties.
This self-ligating device isn't new, but its popularity has grown as some orthodontists claim enhanced clinical performance. While some doctors feel Damon braces are a more effective orthodontic method, scientific evidence has not supported these assertions. Visit Smile Orthodontics for the best dental care.
The Damon braces use innovative high-tech wires to straighten teeth faster, with fewer modifications and less pressure. Damon braces are self-ligating, which means no elastic or metal ties are required, unlike standard braces that employ elastic tie-ins. The braces are coupled to a very light "shape memory" wire that links sliding brackets without the pressure that traditional elastics frequently cause. These components, when combined, will softly shift your teeth over time.
There will be no elastic or metal ties. Damon brackets, unlike typical braces, are self-ligating (a door mechanism exists within each bracket to softly attach the wire softly), resulting in a passive slip. This implies that traditional braces' elastics and clips are no longer required. On the other hand, colorful ties are still available for patients who want them as a fun ornament.
Adjustments require fewer office visits. Teeth are moved into place at a more equal, gentle, and consistent rate thanks to lightweight, high-tech shape-memory wires. This means fewer appointments for modifications are required.
Adjustment appointments that are faster and more comfortable. Opening and closing the doors for replacing wires and adjusting braces is quick and straightforward. This means less time in the chair and less "tightening" of the braces.
