The Damon system is an advanced treatment option that takes an innovative approach to orthodontics. At first glance, Damon Clear braces may seem like any other ceramic braces on the market, but take a closer look and you’ll notice that the brackets are self-ligating. This means there are no elastic ties holding the archwires in place. Damon Clear braces are an option to any patient who wants a discreet orthodontic solution that is effective in treating a wide range of bite and alignment issues.
What makes Damon braces different is that they have a slide mechanism to attach the wires to your brackets, which means you’ll spend less time getting your wires tightened and elastic ties replaced. The advanced memory wires used by the Damon system moves teeth in a precise, controlled manner, with less pressure than traditional braces, making them more comfortable. As your teeth shift into place, the wires tighten themselves.
