Damon braces might look like other braces at first glance, but look a little more closely and you’ll notice that instead of using elastic bands, wires are held in place by the brackets themselves through an innovative slide system. This means that Damon braces are self-ligating, which yields a number of benefits when it comes to orthodontic treatment.
As your teeth move throughout your treatment with Damon braces, the archwire automatically adjusts itself, meaning you won’t need to have the wires adjusted and your elastics changed at our office. The Damon orthodontic system uses memory wires to progressively shift teeth using less pressure than conventional braces, making them more comfortable to wear.

Frequently Asked Questions About Damon Braces
Do Damon braces work faster?
Yes, Damon braces move teeth more efficiently than traditional braces due to their innovative design. The Damon system can potentially reduce your treatment time by up to six months.
Do Damon braces hurt more?
No, Damon braces don’t hurt more; in fact, they’re considered more comfortable than traditional braces. Damon braces cause less discomfort than other types of braces because they are designed to move teeth with less force.
Do Damon braces widen your smile?
Damon braces will broaden your smile by widening your upper and lower arches, which is one of the system’s key advantages. The end result is a more stunning, fuller smile.
Are Damon braces better than Invisalign?
Both Invisalign and Damon braces are excellent orthodontic treatment options. However, since each patient is unique, the right system depends on your orthodontic needs, desired outcomes, lifestyle, and personal preferences. We'll discuss your choices with you during your consultation and help you make the right decision.
Do Damon braces get tightened?
When your teeth move, your Damon braces automatically tighten. Although you’ll still need to visit our office so we can monitor the progress of your treatment, you won’t have to get your archwires tightened during these appointments.
Do Damon braces cost more?
While Damon braces might be more expensive than conventional braces the price difference is usually less than patients (or their parents) expect. We will provide you with a detailed cost comparison of the different options available to assist you in making your decision.
