Damon braces

Damon System braces

Braces are an effective way to straighten your teeth, correct overcrowding issues, adjust bite problems and enhance the appearance of your smile. Since every smile is unique, there are various braces options available to meet your specific needs.

One option is Damon System braces, which are a comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces and Invisalign®.

How do Damon braces work?

Similar to other orthodontic devices, the main goal of Damon braces is to straighten your teeth. However, the main difference between Damon braces and traditional braces is how they’ll straighten your teeth.

A Damon brace uses a specialized bracket that connects to the wire on your teeth. Rather than the doctor tightening your braces to align your teeth into place, Damon braces use a sliding mechanism. When your orthodontist attaches this sliding mechanism to the archwire on the brackets, your teeth will move into place more naturally.

Types of Damon brackets

There are two different types of Damon brackets available to meet your needs or preferences:

  • Damon metal brackets: Damon metal brackets are low-profile and feature a powerful self-ligating system that keeps up with almost any lifestyle.
  • Damon clear brackets: Damon clear brackets are a transparent way to comfortably straighten teeth. These brackets also use self-ligation technology to minimize friction for efficient tooth movement.

What are the benefits of the Damon System?

  • Appearance

    The Damon System does not use elastic ties, making them a discreet option. Patients can also request clear Damon braces for a nearly invisible way to straighten teeth. For those who would like to give their Damon braces some personality, you can also add a rainbow of colors to enhance your braces.

  • Durable

    Damon braces do not require as many parts, leading to fewer chances for damage and fewer problems.

  • Short treatment times

    Since Damon braces are more effective than traditional braces, you may experience a shorter treatment time.

  • Convenient

    Damon braces require fewer adjustments throughout the treatment process, meaning fewer visits to the orthodontist.

  • Improved oral health

    During treatment, your teeth will experience less friction to reduce your risk of tooth erosion.

  • Easy oral hygiene

    Damon braces are easier to clean than traditional braces, making it easier for you to clean your teeth and reduce the risk of cavities.
