Damon Braces

Braces are a trusted and effective solution for misaligned teeth but many patients worry about their appearance and comfort.

Damon™ braces offer a revolutionary approach by combining the effectiveness of traditional orthodontics with newer materials and techniques.

Why should I consider the Damon system?

Treatment Is Faster And More Comfortable

Gentler Movement

Traditional braces have a reputation for causing aching jaws and sensitive teeth. Damon uses a low-friction system which allows the archwire to move freely, minimizing discomfort.

Faster Treatment

Damon braces use advanced shape-memory wires. This means treatment is not only gentler but crooked teeth can also be realigned more quickly - seven months sooner, on average. 

Fewer Appointments

Traditional braces require frequent tightening appointments. By eliminating the need for elastic or metal ties, treatment with Damon braces reduces the number of visits you will need.

Less Noticeable

Damon brackets are less bulky than traditional braces. Furthermore, Damon Clear features a special type of brackets for an even more natural appearance.

Are They Really That Popular?

A Straighter Smile in Fewer Visits

Exam and X-Rays

During your first visit, the doctor will discuss your concerns, goals, lifestyle, and budget. They will also examine your teeth and take x-rays to evaluate your bite.

Get Your Braces

During a second appointment, brackets will be bonded to each tooth and an archwire placed.

Attend Your Check-Ups

Roughly 16 appointments are needed to check on your progress and make necessary adjustments.

Refine Your Smile

Damon braces patients complete treatment in an average of just over 20 months.

Maintain Your Results

Patients will need to wear a retainer or clear aligner after they complete treatment in order to protect their new smile.

How Do I Get Started?

Braces are more effective at treating complex and severe cases of misalignment than alternatives like Invisalign®. With Damon braces, you can achieve straighter teeth with less stress, discomfort, and worry over your appearance. Speak to a dentist today about whether this advanced orthodontic treatment is right for you.
