Braces work on a simple principle – your teeth are attached to a curved wire running along the outside face of your teeth. The wire pulls your teeth into proper alignment by applying consistent pressure. This wire is connected to your teeth not directly, but by brackets that grip your tooth on one side, and the wire on the other.
Traditional braces are tied in with elastics, which can cause friction and pressure, potentially making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening. The Light high-technology shape-memory wires move teeth faster, more comfortably and require fewer adjustments.
