Damon Braces - A Gentler and Faster Alternative

Dr. Wang and his Team at the Smile Design Studio offer a wide variety of orthodontic treatment solutions. All patients have slightly different needs, and everyone's teeth are slightly different. Rest assured, we have a solution for you.

One of the newer solutions is a system called Damon Braces. Invented by Dr. Dwight Damon, it uses advanced low friction braces and lower forces. Along with flexible “memory” wire, it allows Dr. Wang to move teeth and surrounding bone in remarkable ways.

What are Damon Braces, and How do They Work?

Damon Braces do not use elastic ties to attach the brackets to the orthodontic wire, instead the wire is attached with a slide mechanism which moves naturally with the teeth as then align to the correct positions.

Less Pain

Because of the slide mechanism, there is less friction on the teeth, which reduces the force applied to the teeth.

In addition, they don't require tightening as often.

Reduced Treatment Time

Many of our patients have experienced a reduced treatment time as compared to traditional braces since the teeth can move a lot more freely.

Smaller Brackets

Because there is less force being applied to the teeth, the brackets attached to your teeth can be smaller, which means it's less obvious when talking to your friends or coworkers.

Causes of Misaligned Teeth

It doesn't seem fair that you've got awkward-looking teeth being that you take great care of them, flossing and brushing on a regular basis. Well, there are many possible reasons why:

  • Tooth decay.
  • Genetic influences.
  • Physical trauma from accidents or injuries.
  • Poor habits as a child.

Whatever the case, Doctor Wang is here to help!

Are Damon Braces Right for You?

Since we have many options for straightening your teeth, Dr. Wang will advise which one is best suited for your age and teeth. Call our office to set up a consultation with our dentist.

At your initial orthodontic appointment, Dr. Wang will get to know you and your specific situation. He’ll do a thorough exam, take photographs and x-rays of your teeth, and perform any other tests needed. From there, he will present your treatment options, including Damon braces if appropriate.

Are Damon Braces Invisible?

The brackets come in both a clear material as well as metal. Whereas traditional braces come in metal and ceramic teeth-colored material, Damon clear brackets are almost transparent, so they are less obvious to the casual observer.

Types of Damon Brackets

Damon 3

  • Brackets are made of a combination of stainless steel and clear material.
  • Strong
  • Brackets are less visible than the all metal system.
  • Rounded shape helps with comfort while eating and talking.

Damon Clear

  • The main benefit of this system is the reduced visibility of the brackets on your teeth since they are made of transparent material.
  • Read more on our Damon Clear page.

Damon Q

  • All metal, high-grade stainless steel material.
  • The most advanced product in the Damon line.
  • Rounded corners for patient comfort.
  • Removable positioning gauges for more accurate positioning.

Invisalign

Another popular option for adults is the Invisalign system. We create sets of clear trays or aligners that you wear for most of the day, taking it out when you eat or clean your teeth. Like braces, they gradually move the teeth to an optimal position over time, but they are practically invisible, and avoid the problems associated with traditional braces such as cleaning and having bits of food stuck in the brackets.
