Without Elastics, Rubber Bands, or Brackets
Self-ligating braces from ARCH Orthodontics might sound complicated, but they’re actually a simple smile straightening solution that has grown in popularity over the years.
You’ll notice that self-ligating braces are similar to traditional metal braces in how they’re placed on your teeth and in appearance. The difference between the two comes down to something called ligature. Self-ligating braces don’t require additional ligature such as elastics, rubber bands, or metal ties. They use highly effective clips and brackets that move teeth gently into the desired positioning.
- Are easier to clean because they don’t use rubber bands and brackets.
- Require less frequent visits/adjustments with your ARCH orthodontist.
- Move teeth easily with less friction and discomfort.

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.
