Damon Self-Ligating Braces

Patients can now achieve a beautiful, healthy smile with Damon self-ligating braces!

What Are Self-Ligating Braces?

Damon Braces are unique in many ways. Instead of fastening the brackets and archwire with rubber bands, Damon Braces use specially designed clips that connect to the archwire and help guide your teeth into the desired position.

The self-ligating clips apply consistent pressure that is less intense than traditional braces. This pressure provides more freedom of movement for your teeth, allowing for much gentler treatment. Because they provide around-the-clock pressure, you will require fewer adjustment appointments. As much as we love seeing you, we’re sure you’ll appreciate saving time and having greater control during your treatment.

Still want fun, colorful braces? Don’t worry!  We can place colorful o-ties on the brackets so you get stylish colors without slowing down treatment. Colors are optional!

We offer the most innovative treatment options. Schedule a free exam to learn if Damon brackets, metal braces, or Invisalign are right for you.


Benefits of Self-Ligating Braces

Damon Braces can offer many excellent benefits, including:

  • Faster and easier treatment 
  • The self-ligating technology requires fewer adjustment appointments.
  • There is no need for metal ties, rubber bands, or other visible components
  • They collect fewer food particles and are easier to brush and floss

Self-Ligating Braces Vs. Traditional Braces

Damon Braces share some similarities with traditional braces: 

  • They both require brackets that attach to your teeth, and they both use archwires.
  • Both use strong, stainless steel materials.
  • Like metal braces, Damon Braces can also come with clear brackets, making them much less visible than traditional metal braces.
  • On average, Damon Braces cost the same as metal braces, so you shouldn’t expect to spend more for the self-ligating system.

The big difference is that Damon Braces use a specialized clip that locks the wire into place without the need for rubber bands or metal ties.

For patients with more severe cases, it is possible that your orthodontist may need more precise control and may need to apply more pressure than traditional metal braces provide. In these cases, self-ligating brackets may not be the better option for your treatment.

How Much Do Damon Braces Cost?

It’s always a great idea to invest in the long-term health of your smile! If you choose Damon Braces, you can expect to pay about the same amount as you would for traditional metal braces, which averages between $2,000 and $7,000.

When you schedule a braces consultation, our friendly staff will discuss your treatment costs, your payment options, and review your insurance coverage.
