Along with our clear braces we are thrilled to offer passive self-ligating Damon System braces.

Damon braces use a slide to hold a wire, reducing the amount of pressure and friction in some instances. This allows the teeth to move freely, comfortably, and quickly!

Tie-less Braces – A World Without Elastic Ties!

Tie-less braces help reduce the pressure exerted on teeth. Also, fewer adjustments are usually needed because there are no worn elastics to replace.

Damon Smile technology helps teeth move with complete control. By combining tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires, we can minimize discomfort and make the treatment precise and quick.

Comfort and Speed

Even though Damon Smile system works very quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction forces means less discomfort for you as your teeth move to their new straight positions without delay.


Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, Damon Smile is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile and great esthetics along the way.

Treatment Time

While treatment times generally vary, treatment with Damon Braces typically proceeds at a very quick rate. And because fewer appointments are required during treatment, your Damon Braces experience will be extremely convenient.
