Two of the most common questions orthodontists hear from new patients are about the length of treatment and the comfort level they will experience in braces. The third is how visible will they be.

Although highly effective (and usually more cost effective), traditional braces are always the subject of scrutiny when it comes to both of those issues. Technological advancements in orthodontics are constantly looking at alternatives to improving on the level of discomfort as well as time spent undergoing treatment.

One of those alternatives to consider is self-ligating brackets—also known as Damon Braces or Smart Brackets.

Self-ligating brackets are defined as “a dental brace, which generally utilizes a permanently installed, moveable component to entrap the archwire”. Self-ligating braces have also been designed which do not require a movable component to hold the wire in place.
