Normal elastic ligatures create friction and can require more force and therefore may require more frequent adjustments. They are self-ligating, which means they are secured into the wire without the need for elastic bands. Since the wires are secured into the braces, there is a greater freedom of movement which can result in faster movement of your teeth using gentler force.
Damon Self-Ligating Braces are more efficient than traditional orthodontic braces, which means fewer adjustments are generally required. As much as we love to see our patients, fewer appointments are necessary to have adjustments made.
Due to their unique design, we can use the Damon Orthodontic System to help move your teeth into their correct alignment with much less discomfort than traditional braces systems. Since they are very small, they are very comfortable and are very easy to keep clean.
