What Are Damon Braces & How Do They Work?
Damon Braces are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that work like traditional braces by using brackets and archwires that apply gentle pressure to your teeth.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Damon Braces do not use elastic bands—also called ligatures. Instead, Damon Braces are designed with an innovative self-ligating bracket that tightens over time to guide your teeth into the desired position. Eliminating elastic bands makes your appliances more low-profile, more comfortable, and easier to clean.
You can also choose Damon Metal or Damon Clear brackets, which are made from clear ceramic, so you can confidently share your smile.
Damon Braces can effectively treat complex cases and conditions, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Protruding teeth
The self-ligating bracket also works around the clock, so your treatment will go faster, and you will have fewer adjustment appointments.
What Are the Pros and Cons of Damon Braces
- More discreet look
- Fewer adjustment appointments
- Easier to clean
- Fewer components
- Possible shorter treatment time, depending on your case
- Clear or metal bracket options
- Can cost more than traditional braces, depending on your case
- May experience temporary irritation from brackets and wires
Damon Braces vs Traditional Braces
Damon Braces and traditional both use brackets that attach to your teeth and wires that thread through each bracket. Traditional braces rely on elastic bands to hold the wire in place, which stretch out quickly and are active for only a short period of time. Your orthodontist also must adjust your wires with traditional braces.
Damon Braces use the cutting-edge self-ligating bracket that maintains a constant, light force over extended periods of time. This technology eliminates the need for elastic ties and reduces the number of adjustment appointments. Having fewer components also makes your braces more comfortable and more low-profile.
Depending on your case, Damon Braces and traditional braces can cost about the same amount — between $3,000 and $7,000 on average.
Damon has improved on their ingenious system by providing Damon Clear brackets. Damon Clear uses ceramic brackets that are virtually invisible.
