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!

Damon Braces share some similarities with traditional braces:
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.

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.
