Self-ligating braces - Damon braces
At the Straight Smile Centre™ we like to work with the latest in orthodontic technology and that includes self-ligating braces. Instead of using elastic bands, self-ligating braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, allowing it to move freely. This lessens the friction and promotes low force, minimising the discomfort that is usually present with conventional braces. The light, shape-memory wires also require fewer adjustments.
At the Straight Smile Centre™, we use the Damon System of self-ligating braces as we believe this is the best system to get our patients the results they want. They can treat the most severe cases of crowding and bite issues and can also improve the overall facial result of each patient. What's more, because they don’t have the conventional elastic ties which can attract and collect plaque, the Damon system of self-ligating braces are easier to clean.
And, because your teeth can move freely even with the braces attached, your treatment time is considerably shorter than if you wore conventional braces.
