Q. I keep hearing about the great results that can be achieved with Damon braces. What makes Damon braces so different?
DR. SUTHERLAND: The Damon bracket system uses the latest orthodontic technology to deliver great results. Damon braces use a sliding door technology known as passive self-ligation, allowing the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. In most cases, this allows for natural widening of the arch form without the need for expanders. Also, the shape-memory wire moves teeth with fewer adjustments. Passive self-ligating braces like the Damon system work very well for adults, and allow the orthodontist to treat most crowded cases without extracting permanent teeth.
