Our office is pleased to offer our patients passive self-ligating Damon System braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative new braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!
Self-ligating braces -- A world without elastic ties!
Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. These clips help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and require fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
The Damon System facilitates healthy tooth movement with complete control. By combining passive self-ligation and high-tech archwires, we can minimize discomfort and create beautiful smiles that last a lifetime!
Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!
The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it's a whole new way of treating patients.
Damon passive self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal "ties." With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
While the time needed in braces will vary from case to case, treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free.
Even though the Damon System works so quickly, the use of gentle, low- friction force means less discomfort for you. Very light "shape memory" titanium wires are used, gently guiding your teeth to their ideal position.
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, the Damon System is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
Damon System for Adults
The Damon System is based on a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond a beautiful smile. Your doctor is trained to take the whole patient into account: the shape of your face, your profile, and what you will look like into your 40s, 50s, and beyond.
Damon System Bracelift
For adults, Damon System braces are not only about getting straight teeth, but also about turning back the clock to a more youthful appearance. Many people see a noticeable change not just in their teeth, but in their entire face, and it produces:
- A fuller, wider smile
- Better facial balance and aesthetics
- Smoother cheek contours which make narrow smiles look fuller and more inviting
- Fewer dark triangles within the corners of your mouth
- Straighter, less crowded & crooked teeth
- Improved profiles and a more youthful look at any age

Invest in your smile
Having a beautiful, straight smile is more than just an investment in how you look; it's an investment in yourself. When you're proud to show off your smile, you have more confidence, self-esteem, and a better outlook on life.
The cost of braces or other orthodontic treatment should never keep you from achieving the smile you've always wanted. Because the cost of treatment using the Damon System of braces is usually comparable to the cost of traditional braces, a broader, fuller smile with great facial aesthetics may now be within your reach.
How much do Damon Braces cost?
Because the cost of braces varies with each individual case, only your doctor can truly determine the cost of braces based on your specific needs. Factors that can influence the cost of braces are case difficulty, length of treatment, and insurance coverage.
Many dental insurance plans cover the cost of orthodontics including treatment with the Damon System. Insurance coverage varies so check with your provider to determine the extent of coverage for your treatment.

How long does treatment take?
Treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment.
Since the Damon System works so quickly, does that mean it is harsh or unsafe?
No. In fact, what makes the Damon System work so quickly is its use of gentle, more biologically sensible forces than conventional braces.

Will my teeth hurt after adjustments?
While braces of any kind may cause slight discomfort, many patients experience very little discomfort with Damon System braces because of the system's low-force, low-friction nature.
