“No extractions, no surgery, and Lauren ended up with a beautiful result…this is the gift of a lifetime.”
The Damon System is an advanced orthodontic treatment that uses less force than traditional braces. Because there are no elastic ties that need “tightening,” the teeth can move more quickly and freely, and treatment is typically faster and more comfortable than traditional braces.
Not at all! Orthodontic treatment has changed drastically the last several years, and there are more options than ever before.
Traditional braces offer many benefits, and in some cases, may be the best choice for your child. Their orthodontist will recommend the system that can best help them reach their goals.
The Damon™ System—an advanced approach to orthodontic treatment that uses less force—may also be recommended. The Damon™ System doesn’t require “tightening,” and does more than straighten their teeth—it helps enhance your entire face.
Traditional braces use elastics that “bind” archwires in place, and must be “tightened” at appointments. These elastics cause friction and pressure, which may make treatment slower and less comfortable.
Damon “tie-less” braces don’t require elastics; instead, they use a unique sliding door that maintains the wire within the bracket, allowing teeth to move more freely, quickly, and with more comfort.
Using the Damon System, your child's orthodontist may be able to widen their arch for a broader, more beautiful smile.
With the Damon™ System, your child's specially trained orthodontist can do more than straighten their teeth. In many cases, their orthodontist can improve their facial aesthetics, which may make their face look more balanced.

When you see a great smile, you know it.
But have you ever really looked at what makes a smile great?
An ideal smile shows more teeth, without excessive
gums or lips covering the majority of teeth.
Teeth should sit perfectly upright in the mouth,
not tipping inward or flaring outward.
Full smiles show more teeth and
less dark space in the corners of the mouth.
This may help enhance the entire face.
When smiling, the bottom of the upper teeth should
follow a curve that mirrors the curve of the lower lip.
Teeth should evenly fill the entire area of the smile,
but not overwhelm the face.
In a great smile, all of the teeth fit together
for a perfect bite.
Using the Damon™ System, your child's orthodontist takes into account not just their teeth, but their whole face. This advanced approach may help enhance their facial aesthetics, profile and smile.
Traditional braces use elastic ties that “bind” archwires in place and must be changed monthly (known as “tightening”). Damon™ uses tie-less braces with a unique sliding door to hold wires in place and do not require “tightening.” This allows the wires to move more freely, with less discomfort than traditional braces.1
Damon™ metal braces are extremely small and less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
For the ultimate aesthetic treatment, Damon™ Clear braces are virtually invisible, yet don’t present the limitations of clear aligners.
With Damon Clear, people will see your child's smile, not their braces.
The Damon™ System is proven to be faster than traditional braces – up to 6 months in some cases.1 This means fewer office visits and the chance for your child to see your extraordinary results in less time. What’s more, most people see dramatic improvements within the first few months of treatment.
The Damon™ System works in harmony with the body’s own adaptive abilities to create space and broaden arches naturally. Orthodontists can treat most cases without extractions, palatal expanders, or surgery with the Damon System.
However, for your child's unique smile and treatment goals, their orthodontist may recommend additional procedures to complement their Damon System treatment.
Aligners can be effective at treating mild to moderate tooth crowding, but according to clinical studies, do not treat as effectively as braces. Braces are also associated with fewer cases of relapse (teeth moving back to pre-treatment position) than aligners.1,2

Traditional braces use elastic ties to hold wires. These ties collect plaque, which is bad for your child's teeth and gums.1 The DamonTM System braces do not use elastic ties and are easy to keep clean with daily brushing and flossing.
There are no elastic ties to collect plaque with the Damon System

Clear aligners must be worn a minimum of 20 – 22 hours per day—every day. Failure to do so will lengthen treatment time. Throughout the day, your child must remove aligners for eating and drinking. This makes it easy for aligners to get lost, costing you more in the long run with replacements.
Damon braces are easy to keep clean with daily brushing and flossing and don’t require removal.
