At Orthokind we offer a range of modern, fixed appliances that can successfully and discreetly straighten teeth faster and more comfortably than traditional fixed braces. One such appliance that we offer is the Damon System.
The Damon System
The Damon System of self-ligating brackets are fast, fixed orthodontic braces that use a unique slide mechanism that minimises the friction and binding associated with conventional braces. They work by fastening a small bracket to each tooth; these are then connected to each other using thin, super-elastic nickel titanium wire held in place by small elastic rings.
The brackets can be made of either metal, plastic or ceramic. The Damon System exerts lighter forces on your teeth during treatment, gently gliding them into their ideal position, making treatment faster and more comfortable.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits to the technologically-advanced self-ligating braces:
Faster treatment time: Up to 4 months faster, but no less effective than conventional tied-in braces
Fewer appointments: Less adjustments are required with self-ligating braces so fewer appointments are needed
Increased patient comfort: Reduced friction and binding and shorter treatment times
Improved oral cleanliness: These smaller modern braces are easier to keep clean, reducing the risk of a build-up of plaque and bacteria in the mouth that can lead to tooth decay and gum problems
