Our office is pleased to offer our patients passive self-ligating Damon System braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely.
Self-ligating braces -- A world without elastic ties!
Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place.
The Damon System facilitates healthy tooth movement with complete control by combining passive self-ligation and high-tech archwires.
Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!
The Damon System is a brand of braces we utilize.
Damon passive self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal "ties."
Even though the Damon System works so quickly, the use of gentle, low- friction force is the goal of the appliance approach. Very light "shape memory" titanium wires are used, gently guiding your teeth to their ideal position.
Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, the Damon System is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
