Damon Bracket System - Self Ligating System of Braces

Damon brackets are similar to conventional braces; you still have metal brackets bonded to your teeth and a wire is used to align your teeth. Like conventional braces, the Damon system can be used to treat even the most severe cases of crowding, overbites, underbites, and even crossbites. The difference is that the Damon brackets are smaller and hold the wire without the use of elastics.

Compared side-by-side with conventional metal braces, the Damon difference is quite apparent.

The Damon brackets are a great way to achieve

your most beautifuland esthetic smile in less time

and with greater comfort than other treatments or

even conventional braces. Damon brackets are more

comfortable than conventional braces because the

brackets are smaller and therefore more comfortable

against your lips and cheeks. Because they are smaller,

they are also less noticeable.

Damon brackets are also 'self ligating.' Conventional

braces hold the wire into the brackets with individual

elastics. This causes tension on the wire that moves your teeth. One problem that arises is that the

elastics eventually get loose; therefore you must visit Dr. Anshu at least once a month to change the elastics and create more force.

The other problem with conventional braces is that even if we use silver elastics, which are the most esthetic, the elastics still add more 'metal' to the look of your smile. The Damon brackets do not need elastics to hold the wire in place; instead, Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

This 'self ligating' system means that you will not have to come to Dr. Anshu's office as often and that a more even tension is placed on your teeth throughout your treatment. Office visits are still necessary to change the wire and to make sure that the brackets are clean.

Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties that can collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easier during treatment.

With the Damon System of braces, treatment time is typically 6 months shorter than with conventional braces. And shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile...faster. You may be surprised at how fast.
