Quicker Treatment with Damon Clear Braces
Aren’t we all hoping to see our new-and-improved smile sooner than later? The Damon System technology works so efficiently that it reduces the treatment period (relative to traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligners) and requires fewer appointments. Damon Clear braces don’t use rubber band appliances, which means these braces don’t require an appointment to be tightened. In fact, they don’t require tightening at all!
Damon Clear Braces Use Comfortable, Convenient, Self-Ligating, Tie-Less Brackets
Self-ligating, tie-less brackets? What a mouthful! The highly-advanced, tie-less technology of Damon Clear braces means these braces (unlike traditional, metal braces) don’t use rubber bands or elastic bands to hold the brackets in place. Rubber bands in traditional braces can create space for bacteria to lodge themselves. They also apply added pressure to the teeth, which can sometimes feel sore or uncomfortable as the teeth are shifting.
Self-ligating brackets means they use a slide mechanism, which allows brackets to move freely, rather than all brackets repositioning at the same time. This feature allows greater tooth movement, which is ideal for repositioning each tooth to its optimal position. This is also how Damon Clear braces work quicker than traditional braces. When brackets are bonded to the teeth and not self-ligating, they apply added pressure to the teeth, which slows down the rate of tooth movement. With Damon Clear braces, teeth are not shifting all together at once, so they’re able to reach the desired position at an accelerated rate.
