The Specifics


What are Damon™ Braces?

Damon™ Braces are placed and utilized by a board certified orthodontist to correct crooked teeth, crowded teeth, poorly oriented teeth, and unevenly spaced teeth. While traditional metal braces brackets and lingual braces on the back of teeth require numerous adjustments and accessories, Damon™ Braces and the Damon™ System require less visits, are self-ligating (automatically adjust), and are more comfortable.

The Anatomy of the Oral Cavity

Damon™ Braces use clear brackets (that are invisible) and a lightweight, “memory wire” that uses a slide mechanism to reduce pressure and friction on the brackets. Damon™ Braces also typically require less treatment time than traditional braces and do not use expanders or elastic ties. They are also reported to have higher compliance than clear aligners like Invisalign.

What cosmetic concerns do Damon™ Braces treat?

Misaligned Teeth & Bite: Damon™ Braces utilize a progressive adjustment system to slowly relocate teeth into the desired appearance with ideal orientation and spacing.

Who is the ideal candidate for Damon™ Braces?

The ideal candidate for Damon™ Braces has good oral health and is looking to improve an open bite, crossbite, overbite, overjet, gummy smile, overcrowding, and poor spacing between teeth. Damon Braces are not recommended for those with severe cases of gum recession, or those with areas of bone loss or weakened areas in the jaw bone.

What is the average recovery associated with Damon™ Braces?

There is no recovery time associated with the use of Damon™ Braces. Patients may experience temporary discomfort and sensitivity following the application of the braces, and after adjustments, however, these side effects are usually quickly relieved with wax and over the counter medications.
