Subject: More discussion on self-ligating brackets

I like to hear some discussion about the  self-ligating brackets specifically the Damon brackets. Charlie and others what about all these claims. I have friends that claim they no longer need expanders. Basically just put it on and it will solve ALL your problems!! I would like to believe that but I am not one to take the reps or the companies word for it. We have had 50 cases of Damon and 50 cases of Innovation on for about a year and I am evaluating the progress. So far not too happy with the D3 . Innovation I have some really good and quick results but a few not so good. I am still using my regular brackets also ( MBT ). Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
