What Are Damon Braces?

Damon Braces apply gentle force to the teeth and shift them into their ideal placement. Damon Braces work with most mild to severe orthodontic issues, including gapping or crowded teeth and bite problems.

Damon Braces work more efficiently because the advanced process uses trap doors in the brackets to position the archwire rather than elastics. Removing the use of rubber bands reduces the amount of pressure placed on the teeth.

How Do Damon Braces Work?

If you are wondering, “How do Damon Braces work?”, this question might be best answered by explaining self-ligating technology.

In addition to smoother brackets that hold your archwire in place, Damon Braces use a slide mechanism to adjust your teeth over time. Rather than regularly visiting your orthodontist for wire adjustments, your teeth adjust steadily. Because of the gradual process of the self-ligating system, you will require fewer appointments at our offices and feel less discomfort.

Damon Braces vs Traditional Braces

So what is the difference between Damon Braces vs traditional braces?

Damon Braces and traditional braces treat teeth similarly, aligning your smile and bite with gentle forces placed on the teeth. Below we list a few of the differences between the two treatments:

  1. Traditional braces require more in-office appointments to adjust the wires and keep your teeth moving at a proper pace. Damon Braces require fewer in-office examinations. The self-ligating wires slide slowly, aligning your teeth gently at a steady rate.
  2. Because Damon Braces reduce the need for extra accessories, they are easier to clean than traditional braces. Fewer accessories keep your mouth from collecting bacteria in hard-to-reach places.
  3. Damon Braces and traditional braces come at comparable price rates.
  4. The self-ligating system makes Damon Braces more comfortable than traditional braces.
