What is the difference between damon braces and traditional braces?

Back to posts

The orthodontics market has evolved dramatically since the days of traditional braces that utilised the use of elastic bands on metal wires, which were often the cause for uncomfortable treatments and generally not a great experience. The Damon system is an advanced system that provides great results, with fewer appointments at the dentist along the way and longer intervals in-between seeing the dentist! Traditionally you could of been seeing your dentist every 4-6 weeks for an adjustment/check up appointment. With Damon it is more likely (on average) to be around every 2 and a half months between each visit.

Old fashioned traditional braces used to utilise an elastic tie to hold the wire. The main problem with this method is the fact that there used to be a lot of friction between the brace and the wire that didn’t allow efficient movement (and could also cause discomfort in the patient). The Damon system has no elastic tie and the brace can efficiently move with no friction what so ever. Not only does this mean the overall treatment is much more gentler and comfortable, but it also speeds up treatment times!
