What are damon braces?
The self-ligating Damon braces are an amazing new way to straighten your teeth in a faster and more comfortable way!
The self-ligating Damon braces are an advanced form of braces which do not require O-rings or elastics. Conventional braces are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Self-ligating braces hold the wire in and lock it in place, functioning as a gate. They use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

Benefits of Damon braces
These braces were designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the O-rings or elastics, which attract and collect plaque, self-ligating braces enable you to maintain optimal dental health and hygiene throughout your treatment.
The main advantages of self-ligating braces include:
- Less discomfort for the patient
- Faster tooth alignment (shorter treatment time – from 6 months)
- Fewer visits to the orthodontist
- Exceptional results
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:
- Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in better
- Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which may help digestion.
- Aligned teeth create a better bite, which may reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.
How long do damon braces take?
Treatment time with the damon system is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment.
How much do damon system braces cost?
Dr Saacks will determine the cost of braces based on your specific needs. Factors that will influence the cost of braces are case difficulty, length of treatment and your individual orthodontic concerns.
What is the difference between damon braces and traditional braces?
Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.
