Traditional braces apply moderate pressure to encourage or facilitate tooth movement. After the bracket is bonded to the tooth it serves as a handle that is used to attach an archwire. The archwire is actually what causes the tooth to move. The wire is bent in a specific way to achieve the prescribed path to new alignment. This traditional method of orthodontics creates an incredible amount of friction between the brackets and wires. Thanks to the advancement in today’s technology, we now have a more revolutionary way of straightening teeth.
Dr. Dwight Damon created the new Damon® Bracket System. The Damon® System uses a self-ligation technique using lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move teeth, while resulting in faster treatment times due to its slide mechanism, strong, mechanical base bonding and solid walls structured to control tooth movement with speed and efficiency.
Benefits of Damon® Braces:
- Faster treatment
- Fewer appointments
- More comfortable
- Less root resorption
In addition to greater comfort, the Damon® System makes it easier to maintain good hygiene because it’s easier to keep clean. This contributes to greater health, happiness and physical attractiveness for the duration of patient treatment. For more information, click on the video below.
