Damon braces are a new generation of metal braces which uses passive self-ligating braces. Unlike traditional braces, no elastic or rubber bands or metal ties are used. Instead, self-ligating braces use a ‘sliding door’ technique in which brackets are stuck onto the front of teeth, allowing the arch wire to slide back and forth.
Traditional metal braces use elastics or active clips that "bind" archwires in place. This creates friction and pressure that act like parking brakes and can slow down treatment.
Damon Braces uses what's called a "passive" slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket, allowing them to move freely. This reduces friction and binding, so your teeth can move quickly and more comfortably.
There are several benefits of self-ligating braces over traditional braces:
