Metal braces - Damon system
At Signature Orthodontics, we like to use the latest in orthodontic technology and techniques to get our patients results. That is why we use a brand of traditional metal braces that has a very innovative twist to it. Known as the Damon system, these metal braces use a clever slide mechanism to straighten your teeth.
How do Damon metal braces work?
To understand how Damon braces work you first need to understand how metal braces work. If you are fitted with braces, a small bracket will be bonded onto the front surface of your teeth (except in the case of lingual braces when the bracket is bonded to the back surface). These brackets are connected via a thin metal wire known as an archwire. Elastic bands are then used to help apply pressure to the wire to straighten your teeth.
The Damon system, however, uses a special kind of bracket known as a self-ligating bracket. These brackets work using a low friction system to move teeth more freely and easily into position.
