What is Damon System braces?

Damon System braces provide tie-less braces that don’t require tightening and are gentle on your teeth and gum tissues. Their high-technology, memory-shape wires move teeth—fast!—and require fewer adjustments. It’s a clinically proven treatment that aligns teeth and enhances facial aesthetics, typically without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.

What makes this type of braces different?

Fast treatment time and fewer office visits

If you want a shorter treatment time, the Damon System is right for you. Shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile faster than traditional braces.

Beautiful faces and beautiful smiles

The Damon System’s unique treatment philosophy goes beyond straightening teeth. We analyze each patient’s face, profile, and other factors, anticipating what you will look like in your 40s, 50s, and beyond to create a broad, beautiful smile.

Outstanding comfort

Forget having your braces tightened. The Damon System uses tie-less brackets to reduce pressure on your teeth and allow them to move more comfortably to their correct positions.
