    DAMON SYSTEM & TADs: Simple and effective treatment

    Due to passive self-ligation, the Damon system of brackets and archwires is known for its very low friction, which enables the application of mild biological forces for effective tooth movement. The clinic's proven advantages of this system are reflected in faster treatment, reduction in the number and duration of controls, as well as less frequent use of auxiliary devices. These advantages have a significant impact on patient comfort and make therapy simpler. On the other hand, orthodontic mini-implants (MI) or TADs (Temporary anchorages devices) as a skeletal anchorage have changed the earlier concept of orthodontic treatment, which was based on the use of complicated and uncomfortable biomechanics. Using the Damon system in combination with MI enables solving complex cases through a system of simple biomechanics with minimal patient discomfort. The aim of this lecture is to demonstrate the advantages and benefits of the Damon self-ligating system and its greater effectiveness in combined use with TADs through the presentation of clinical cases.
