SELF LIGATING BRACES


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SELF-LIGATING BRACES

Two of the most common questions orthodontists hear from new patients are about the length of treatment and the comfort level they will experience in braces. The third is how visible will they be.

Although highly effective (and usually more cost effective), traditional braces are always the subject of scrutiny when it comes to both of those issues. Technological advancements in orthodontics are constantly looking at alternatives to improving on the level of discomfort as well as time spent undergoing treatment.

One of those alternatives to consider is self-ligating brackets—also known as Damon Braces or Smart Brackets.


WHAT ARE SELF-LIGATING BRACES?

In the case of your more traditional braces, the orthodontist uses elastics to keep the archwire on the bracket. In self-ligating braces, the archwire is held in place by the bracket itself by closing a small, spring-loaded door

Although the popularity of this bracket style has climbed over the last 10 years or so, the system itself has been around since the mid-1930s. There are numerous manufacturers of this type of bracketing system.

Here are some of the facts you should consider before making a decision about whether to choose self-ligating braces.

DAMON CLEAR

Damon Clear uses what's called a "passive" slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket, allowing them to move freely. This reduces friction and binding, so your teeth can move quickly and more comfortably.

Null

TRADITIONAL BRACKETS

Other styles of braces use elastics or active clips that "bind" archwires in place. This creates friction and pressure that act like parking brakes and can slow down treatment.

INVISIBLE BRACES FOR YOUR TEETH.

Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.

With Damon Clear, people may not even realize you're wearing braces. Other clear or so-called invisible braces have visible metal parts or elastic ties that can yellow during treatment. But tieless Damon Clear braces are more discrete and resistant to staining and discoloration all throughout treatment.


A GREAT SMILE FOR A LIFETIME

Deciding what type of treatment you want can be a difficult decision. Traditional braces, invisible aligners or Damon Clear? When making your decision, be sure to look at the big picture. Don't focus solely on what you will experience during your time in treatment. Focus on what you will look like for the rest of your life. With Damon Clear, you'll benefit from fast, comfortable braces that are virtually invisible during treatment. And after treatment, you'll have a spectacular smile that goes beyond just straight teeth.

Following the end of treatment, teeth often have a tendency to return to their original positions, which is called a relapse. There are a variety of factors that may influence the possibility of relapse including the type of treatment. One study showed that patients treated with Invisalign relapsed more than those treated with braces.6 Damon System results are built to last. However, because all teeth have a tendency to relapse, it may be necessary to wear some type of removable retention device at night - such as a Damon Splint - following treatment.

Clinical studies show that the Damon System provides more comfortable orthodontic treatment than traditional braces.

Damon Clear uses tieless braces that don't need to be "tightened" and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. Other styles of braces use elastics or active clips that bind archwires in place, which can slow down treatment and cause pain.

FAST TREATMENT

See results faster than you might think. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces. And while invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth, not everyone is a candidate. In contrast, Damon Clear works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.


EXTRAORDINARY RESULTS

Clinical studies demonstrate that Invisalign can help straighten teeth but does not treat as effectively as braces and delivers limited results. In fact, one study found that the mean accuracy of tooth movement with Invisalign was only 41%.4 With Damon Clear, you get more than straight teeth. A Damon doctor will take into account your unique facial proportions when aligning your teeth, bite and smile. In no time at all you'll have the smile and facial profile and aesthetics you've always dreamed about.

DAMON BRACES

Braces are the beginning, But the system makes the smile.

Certified Damon System doctors combine three key components, which when used together, deliver faster treatment, fewer appointments, greater comfort, and consistent high-quality results:

  • Damon passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal " ties ". With Damon tie - less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
  • Light high - technology shape - memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
  • A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics - usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.

MORE FREE, QUICK, & COMFORTABLE

Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean.

Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus the Damon System is available in clear brackets for those image conscious patients.

Traditional braces on the left are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable.

Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.
