How do braces work?
As pressure is applied, through the appliance, your teeth a gradually moved to a straighter more attractive position. Braces are made up of the following components: Brackets, are the small squares that are bonded directly to the front of each tooth with a special dental bonding agent. Brackets act like handles, holding the archwires that move the teeth.
Certified Damon System doctors like Dr. Erickson combine three key components, when used together, deliver faster treatment, fewer appointments, greater comfort, and consistent high-quality results:
- Damon self-ligating brackets eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less appliances you can experience treatment without tightening.
- Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
- A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Traditional metal brackets are tied in with elastics, which can cause friction and pressure making the treatment slower and less comfortable. The Damon system, uses a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move freely, quickly and comfortably.
