Difference Between Damon Brackets and Traditional Metal Brackets

Back in the day when one needed to get their teeth straightened; it was a long, tedious, and painful process. At that time braces meant a mouthful of wires and lots of discomforts. Though the results were worth the struggle, is it not better to have the same effect has gone through less strain? That’s where the Damon brackets come in as the newest orthodontic technology to ease the process.

The Damon brackets are self-litigating brackets, meaning that a gate holds the wire which moves the tooth in the bracket, which makes the brace a tunnel through which the wire can pass through and offers more freedom in the movement that traditional braces can’t (that’s a mouthful, I know.). While both of these options use metal, there are major differences between the two.

Damon brackets are gentler and more comfortable to your mouth due to the fact that they don’t have to be tightened like the original. Traditional brackets will use elastic ties and active clips which can have a lot of discomforts. The wires used for Damon brackets are lighter than those used in traditional struts and have a width of 0.014 inches that use a precise shape- retention expertise. 

With Damon brackets, you can be sure to have better oral hygiene. This is due to there being no wires or ties in your mouth which will always hold on to food particles. Therefore, you will have an easier time when brushing your teeth and while flossing. If need be, the brackets can be removed any time to aid oral hygiene further.

Any other difference between Damon brackets and traditional braces will be a price. This newer version tends to be more costly than other orthodontic treatments, which may be a problem for some people. If you are wanting a better smile with ease, then it’s worth every penny.
