Damon System brackets use a passive slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket while allowing them to move freely.
Traditional brackets use elastic ties or metal clips that bind the archwires, holding them tight. Such ties may act like the handbrake in a car, causing friction and pressure, which may slow down the treatment and make it more uncomfortable.
Expanding possibilities without palatal expansion or surgery
The Damon System helps both orthodontist and patient by reducing the need for auxiliary appliances or invasive procedures.
Damon system and hygiene
We all know that oral hygiene in a mouth full of brackets can be complicated, but the Damon System makes it easier.
Traditional brackets use elastic ties to hold the archwires. These accumulate plaque, which may give rise to periodontal problems. In fact, recent clinical studies have shown that elastic ties accumulate more plaque and cause significant gum bleeding.
