Braces attached to all teeth form the basis of fixed treatments in orthodontics. In classical brackets used in the past and preferred today, tiny thin braces, colored or transparent elastics are used to fix the wires on them. Existing braces and tires create a certain amount of frictional force. Tooth movement slows down for this reason.
If the sharp corners of the binding wires applied within the orthodontic treatment remain, it may cause irritation on the cheeks and lips. The rubbers preferred in orthodontic treatment prevent the microorganisms in the mouth and cause dental caries and gum diseases. The special locking detailed mechanism used in Damon brackets allows the braces to be attached into the bracket groove without the use of rubber or braces. The friction force is minimized by applying a low amount of pressure using arc wires. There is no delay in tooth movements. It offers a more comfortable treatment alternative than conventional metal brackets.
