What Are Damon Braces?
The Damon system represents a new method of treating patients. Some treatments in the past often included the removal of a patient’s healthy teeth and the use of expanders. The Damon system is designed to create full, natural-looking smiles without tooth removal.
The Damon system allows our orthodontist to deliver effective orthodontic care to our patients, all with less time spent in our offices, greater comfort and faster results. Damon Braces don’t require the use of metal or elastic ties. That means treatment without tightening. Instead, light Damon wires move teeth faster, and with less adjustments.
Traditional braces that employ elastics can lead to pressure and friction, a slower technique that’s also less comfortable for patients. Damon Braces employ a slide mechanism that allows your teeth to move freely, faster and more comfortably.
Damon Braces are:
- Easy to clean
Damon also offers Damon Clear braces for those who don’t want to feel self-conscious as they undergo orthodontic treatment. Damon Clear braces are just about invisible to others and still provide safe and effective realignment of teeth that will leave you with a great-looking smile.
With Damon Clear, most people won’t even know you are wearing braces. Damon Clear braces are tie-less and have proven to be stain resistant.
Our orthodontist treat each patient like the individuals they are. We will review the benefits of Damon Braces and other treatment approaches with you in detail, and together we will devise a treatment plan that best suits your needs. Another benefit of Damon Braces is you won’t have to worry about developing speech problems, which can occur with some braces.
Damon Smile is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it's a whole new way of treating patients!

- Comfort: Even though Damon Smile works so quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you
- Convenience: Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, Damon Smile is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
Damon® braces versus Invisalign?
While invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth in less complicated cases, not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign. So why settle for the limitations of clear aligners or worry about losing, misplacing or forgetting them? There’s also less possibility of relapse (teeth moving back to their original positions) with Damon braces following the end of treatment. One study showed that patients treated with Invisalign relapsed more than those treated with braces. Damon® results are built to last, but because all teeth have the tendency to relapse, you’ll still have to wear a removable retention device at night following treatment.
Treatment with Damon Braces is also faster. Studies indicate Damon treatment can be completed as much as six months earlier than traditional treatments. And with Damon Braces, lost aligners are not a concern since they aren’t needed.
While the time needed in braces will vary from case to case, treatment time with Damon Smile is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free.
The Damon Braces System has many advantages, from fewer trips to the orthodontist’s chair to better comfort. And Damon Braces are easy to clean, which decreases your risk of developing gingivitis and other dental issues that can occur when teeth are not properly cleaned.
