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

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on February 4, 2010

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?

Damon braces are very different from conventional braces and can be fitted in both children and adult brace treatment. Their uniqueness is the fact that you no longer need the small coloured elastics or bands to hold the wire in. The wire is held in by the Damon self-ligating bracket, which means the wire can move freely. What this means for you, is that the treatment may be a little bit faster and you don’t need to come and see us every month, the adjustment visits are normally every 8 weeks. The longer appointment intervals cause much less disruption to your normal routines. Also, as you no longer need the elastics, it’s much easier to keep the teeth clean as the elastics can act a plaque trap.
