Damon Q's auxiliary slots can incorporate sectional wires to quickly align teeth — such as blocked-out laterals — while maintaining the patient's natural wire sequence. These novel features can reduce the number of appointments and shorten overall treatment time.
There is +/- 10.5° of wire play between a .019 x .025 wire and the .022 x .028 lumen of the super-torque (+11°) Damon Q upper cuspid bracket for expressed torque of approximately 0.5°.
Active self-ligation brackets exert up to 1.34 kg of unidirectional force during slide opening. But Damon Q's SpinTek slide disperses forces in opposite directions for a net force of 0 kg — even despite calculus buildup.
To open, insert the SpinTek slide instrument into the slide release cavity and twist 90º. To close, position the instrument on either side of the slot and squeeze the opposing prong.
Small bracket profile and size with smooth, rounded corners help prevent occlusal interference while offering patients greater comfort and aesthetics.
Damon Q's profile and occlusal-gingival dimensions are much smaller compared with other self-ligation brackets.
