Do you need braces, but want fewer appointments and faster treatment? Most of our patients do! That is why Graham Gardner Orthodontics offers Damon Braces at our practice based in the heart of Winchester.
What are self-ligating braces?
Self-ligating braces are a revolutionary orthodontic system designed to be faster and more comfortable than traditional braces. While traditional braces use rubber bands or ties to hold the wire onto the bracket, self-ligating brackets use a special slide mechanism that removes the need for metal or elastic ties. This advanced technology uses a unique clip or movable door to fasten the wire in place instead of the bands. This type of bracket results in reduced treatment times and a more discreet appearance due to the absence of ties.
Benefits of Damon braces
Because Damon self-ligating braces slide in response to your teeth, treatment is faster but no less effective.
Because they do not utilise ties, self-ligating braces do not require “tightening,” which means fewer visits to our office for adjustments.
Damon Braces apply less pressure to your teeth, so orthodontic treatment can be more pleasant.
If you are concerned about the appearance of your smile during orthodontic treatment, Damon Braces are typically a more cosmetically pleasing option because they eliminate the need for elastic ties over top of your braces.
Elastic ties can attract and collect plaque. Self-ligating braces make dental hygiene easier during orthodontic treatment because they eliminate the need for metal or elastic ties.
