Self Ligating Damon Braces

Are you facing the issue of misaligned teeth accompanied by underbite or overbite and looking for an orthodontic device that does not draw much attention from the onlookers? We at SmileMint Studio recommend self-ligating Damon braces that help in reducing the gap between the teeth. 

What Are Self-Ligating Damon Braces?

Self-ligating damon braces have almost the same components as traditional braces, such as archwires and brackets, but the difference is that self-ligating braces do not have rubber bands to hold the brackets in their place. Another remarkable thing about damon self-ligating braces is that the brackets to hold archwires are made transparent to make them less visible to onlookers, and they do not need any additional rubber bands to hold them. It makes the self-ligating braces treatment more effective and appears to look more streamlined. 

Benefits of Self-Ligating Damon Braces

  1. They contain smaller orthodontic brackets that make wearing braces more comfortable 
  2. Self-ligating braces give a more discreet look since the accessories of braces are not very colorful and visible
  3. The duration of the treatment will be shorter since there is no changing of elastic bands. 
  4. You can easily maintain the braces in self-ligating by brushing and flossing in comparison to traditional ones since the food debris will not get stuck between the braces. 
  5. The damon brackets cause very less discomfort.
