Damon Braces are a technologically advanced means of achieving a straight and beautiful smile. While standard braces use elastics to attach archwires into their brackets, Damon braces use a special sliding mechanism to hold the wire in place and allow the braces to self-adjust as teeth move into alignment. Because your orthodontist will not have to manually tighten your wire for every adjustment, this means less frequent appointments. Patients wearing Damon Braces typically achieve desired results more quickly and more comfortably than those with traditional metal brackets. Damon Braces also come in a popular clear bracket style, which make orthodontic treatment much less noticeable.
