Conventional vs Self Locking braces – What to choose?

We all are well aware of the conventional metal braces with its metallic appearance and the elastic rubber bands which hold the wire with the braces. One major drawback of conventional braces was the time taken to get tooth alignment and the difficulty in maintaining oral hygiene with the rubber bands/elastic ties that bind the wires in place.

Technology is evolving constantly, so is the field of dentistry.

A good substitute to conventional braces is the self locking braces or DAMON CLEAR BRACES.

How do Damon system work?

Damon clear braces use a tie less slide mechanism which has minimal friction and allows the wire to move freely in braces hence working faster than the conventional braces.

What are the advantages of Self ligating braces?

1. These are faster than traditional braces

2. More comfortable

3. They come as tooth colored too so virtually less visible

4. Do not require elastic ties hence oral hygiene maintenance is convenient

5. It can treat mild to severe crowding/irregularities just like conventional braces but faster than traditional ones

Who all should get consult for braces?

If you notice any of the following, you should consult the orthodontist –

1. Irregular teeth

2. Gaps in teeth

3. Abnormal bite

4. Forwardly placed teeth

5. Difficulty in chewing food

Ultimately, what your doctor would advice you is best for you. Nevertheless, choice remains of the patient primarily!
