The Damon System is a modern fixed brace designed in a way that reduces the friction force between the brackets and the wire. This allows the teeth to move more gently than with many other types of orthodontic braces.
Damon braces gently straighten teeth while expanding the jaws, producing a fuller, more natural smile. The resulting changes can be very dramatic, especially when the jaws were narrow to begin with.
The unique way they work means Damon braces can straighten teeth without the need to remove any healthy adult teeth first, even in cases of severe crowding. A growing number of orthodontists and dentists now believe maintaining a full set of adult teeth, where possible, is better for long term dental health as well as appearance.
Damon braces are available with either metal or clear brackets and are suitable for both adults' and children's orthodontics.
