The Damon System
The Damon® Braces are passive self-ligating braces using a slide mechanism to hold the wire allowing teeth to move freely; this means they are a low friction and low force method of moving the teeth to correct the alignment. These braces allow the arch wire to move freely and that means less force, faster treatment, fewer adjustment visits and far less discomfort and pain.
Damon brackets are beneficial for patients of all ages. Adult patients benefit from them because of the lower forces and can now enjoy faster treatment than ever before. Damon braces are generally smaller than traditional metal braces and without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, they are easier to keep clean.
When using the Damon System there is less chance of needing extractions because of the way these braces work to correct the teeth. However, the Damon System is not a ‘non-extraction approach’ as some people seem to believe. There are certain complex orthodontic problems that still require extractions as part of the orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Kostas has more than 14 years experience with the Damon Braces and has treated more than 2,000 patients using this high-tech system.
