Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive.
Damon braces were invented by Dr. Dwight Damon. The Damon bracket utilizes (sliding door) technology known as "self ligation" that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket.
No elastic or steel ties are used with Damon brackets. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, Damon braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed. For more information, please visit the Damon website at www.damonbraces.com.
