Damon System or Damon braces are self-ligating appliances that are fitted in the same way as traditional metal braces, but instead of having brackets that would be tightened and adjusted the braces regularly, Damon braces use a slide mechanism that attaches wires to brackets to move naturally with the teeth as they re-align. This makes them more comfortable, better looking, and able to provide strong results in a shorter time.
These braces use a different method for moving teeth into the right position. The braces are attached to the memory wire that connects slide brackets without the pressure that traditional elastics often produce. They are then set to move your teeth gradually, tightening over time. The process uses less force than traditional braces, which often require supplemental treatment through tooth extractions and palatal expanders
