Damon System

Faster, more convenient and comfortable orthodontic care.

Orthodontists straighten teeth by attaching an archwire that exerts enough force to slowly reposition them. With traditional braces, that wire is secured to the bracket by an elastic band, or “ligature.” This method of attachment prevents the wire from sliding, which requires frequent adjustments as the teeth move. The elastic ligatures also stretch and need periodic replacement. They can trap food particles and bacteria, become stained and be difficult to clean.

The Damon System brackets work differently, holding the archwire behind a sliding door, which creates a tunnel that holds the wire while letting it slide freely. With Damon and no elastic ties, cleaning the teeth and braces is much easier and stained elastic ties are a thing of the past.

Damon self-ligation offers many benefits.

The greatly reduced friction of the Damon self-ligating braces causes less discomfort than traditional braces. The sliding wire allows teeth to be aligned more quickly. Without ligatures, cleaning is easier, staining is less likely and there is less opportunity for bacteria to become an issue or to hinder treatment. Other benefits offered by Damon’s self-ligating braces include:

  • Fewer adjustments, fewer office visits
  • Easier adjustments for shorter appointments
  • Thinner wire for less visibility & discomfort
  • Significantly less need for extractions or headgear
  • Appropriate for children & adults
  • Available esthetic brackets for minimal visibility
  • Shorter total duration of treatment

Get excellent results… in less time and with less hassle.

In addition to making orthodontic treatment easier, more comfortable and faster, the Damon System allows Dr. Feller to continue providing extraordinary results.
