Damon Braces - A friction free solution to straighter teeth

The Damon System is a revolutionary new system of braces that utilises friction free technology giving you faster and more comfortable tooth straightening than conventional orthodontics. Conventional treatment may require the removal of healthy teeth or the use of palatal expanders, which make room for the teeth to move into. The conventional approach is often very uncomfortable and sometimes quite painful in addition to taking longer and not giving as aesthetically pleasing results. Treatment times with the Damon braces system are typically 4-6 months less than that with conventional orthodontics

The Damon passive self-ligating braces, means that there is no need for elastic or metal ties, this makes oral hygiene easier and also results in a more comfortable treatment without the need for tightening.

The patented light, high-technology and special shape-memory wires move your teeth faster than conventional materials into the desired position, they also require fewer adjustments.

The Damon system is a clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – often without the need for extractions or rapid palatal expanders, characteristic of many conventional treatment plans.

Conventional braces are tied in with elastics, which can cause friction, pressure and irritation to the soft tissue. In combination treatments with elastic ties systems make the treatment less comfortable and sometimes painful as well as much slower. Damon braces use an almost friction-free slide mechanism which  holds the wire, this mechanism allows your teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

Damon braces are designed to be discrete; although not as discrete as clear aligners such as invisalign they are comfortable and easy to keep clean. The elastic ties associated with traditional braces often attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make maintaining oral hygiene much easier during treatment.

The majority of the bracket (60%) is fabricated from ceramic reinforced composite material, which is highly resistant to wear and staining. This combination of clear material and stainless steel gives the bracket a smaller appearance and a more aesthetic look during treatment.

Invisible braces better alternative?

Although some may argue that invisalign or clearstep invisible braces with clear aligners can provide a more discrete solution to straighter teeth, the Damon system will be arguable faster and can treat more complex cases such as severe overbites underbites and crossbites, which the invisible braces system cannot.

How long is the treatment?

With the Damon System, treatment time is typically shorter than with conventional braces (4-6 months faster) And shorter treatment time means fewer appointments, less time off work and a beautiful smile...faster..

Will I need to wear Head Gear?

In the past, creating space and developing arches required bulky headgear and palatal expanders. The Damon System's revolutionary approach uses light, biologically-sensible forces to develop beautiful natural arches, in most cases without the need for headgear or palatal expanders. It's far easier and more comfortable to get the beautiful smile you've always dreamed of.
