Damon braces utilise a unique, self-ligation, low friction mechanism, that is ideal for moving teeth comfortably into a better bite.
Damon braces are passive self ligating braces, they eliminate the need for traditional elastic or metal “ties”.
The Damon System is a clinically proven treatment that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Conventional orthodontic braces are tied with elastics, which can cause friction and pressure, making treatment less comfortable. Damon system braces have a unique slide mechanism that reduces pressure on teeth and allows them to move more comfortably to their correct positions.
The absence of ‘ties’ make dental hygiene easier during treatment as they do not attract or collect plaque.
Damon Clear braces work the same way as traditional Damon braces, without elastic ties and with self-ligating archwires and brackets but the main advantage is that Damon Clear is made from an aesthetic ceramic.
As a result users are more comfortable with the appearance during treatment. This can be important for many people that are put off treatment at the thought of wearing a metal brace.
