Do the Damon Self-Ligating braces require the same type of bracket as the conventional braces?

Submitted by admin on August 14, 2011

Do the Damon Self-Ligating braces require the same type of bracket as the conventional braces? What is the advantage of the Damon braces over conventional braces? Are they suitable for children?

The Damon braces are very suitable for children. Damon self-ligating braces have innovative technology and no longer need elastics/ modules to hold the wire in place. This allows the teeth to move freely from the outset. What this means for you, is that the brace treatment may be slightly shorter than conventional braces. And you don’t need to come and see us so often during treatment – it would be every 8-10 weeks rather than every month, so less time spent at the orthodontist and more free time for you.
