Damon fixed braces take convenience to a whole new level — no elastic ties, no appointments to tighten your braces and often, no need for extractions. These are self-ligating braces.
HOW DO DAMON FIXED BRACES WORK?
Traditional fixed metal braces come in 3 main parts: brackets, wires and elastic ties around the brackets to help the wires pull the teeth into alignment. Elastic ties can cause friction and discomfort so Damon does away with them in favour of self-ligating braces. A slide mechanism holds the wire in place and the wire itself has shape memory, which together means your teeth are moved more quickly and comfortably without the need for so many appointments to have your braces adjusted.
