Damon Self-ligating Braces
How do Damon Braces work?
The Damon Bracket was designed by an American orthodontist. It has a 'sliding door' mechanism which holds the wire passively and allows the wire to move easily with minimal friction (example on the right). This type of bracket is also known as ‘self-ligating’ and eliminates the use of rubber bands to hold the wire in place (example on the left).
What are the benefits of the Damon Bracket & Damon Copper Ni-Ti® Wire System?
The Damon system exerts low, gentle forces on your teeth
The Damon system is aesthetically-pleasing as there are no rubber modules which could stain and collect bacteria.
The smooth and rounded bracket contours are more ergonomic and comfortable to wear
Wire changes are comfortable because of the innovative SpinTek™ slide, which produces zero Newton of force when opening the “sliding door”
