Damon  Braces

Damon® System

Braces without elastic ties!

Damon braces use a special door to hold your archwire in place.  This reduces the amount of pressure needed to move your teeth, allowing them to move more freely, comfortably, and quickly. Thanks to this amazing new technology, getting the smile you deserve will be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!


Damon braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal ties. That means you got through treatment without “tightening your braces.”


Damon braces are designed to be comfortable, discreet, and easier to clean than traditional braces. By removing the need for elastic ties you reduce the amount of plaque that is attracted and collected.  Making dental hygiene with the Damon braces nice and easy throughout treatment.

Plus, Damon braces are available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without everyone noticing they are in treatment.


While the Damon braces work very quickly, the use of reduced, low-friction force means less discomfort for you.

Treatment time

The amount of time needed in braces will vary from case to case.  The great part is that treatment times with Damon braces is generally faster than with traditional braces. Even better, far fewer appointments are required during treatment, which makes your Damon braces treatement experience convenient and hassle-free.

Dr. Duryea combines three key components during your treatment, which when used together, deliver faster treatment, fewer appointments, greater comfort, and consistent high-quality results:

  1. Damon passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
  2. Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
  3. A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.

Traditional braces on the left are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

With traditional braces, orthodontists are often forced to remove teeth in order to create space when you have a crowed smile. No one likes to have teeth removed, and a smile with a full display of teeth often produces a broader, more natural smile. The Damon System uses forces that are biologically sensible that work with the body’s natural adaptive process to create space. That means Dr. Duryea can now treat most cases without removing any teeth.

In the few cases which still require tooth removal, space is made to improve facial balance and symmetry to provide a natural smile and profile that will last and look terrific for a lifetime.
