The Damon™ System

Our smiles are a big part of our identity and how we are perceived by our peers. With the breakthrough technology of the Damon System, it's easier than ever to improve your smile and experience the difference:

  • Confidence to excel in school, work and personal life
  • Clearer speech for interviews, public speaking, etc. 

Compared to some of the other 'extreme' cosmetic procedures available today, improving your smile is one of the most valuable investments you can make to improve your overall appearance for a lifetime.

Proven Performance from Start to Finish

The days of having braces tightened are over. This revolutionary new approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment. That's because Damon System braces have a unique slide mechanism that allows Dr. McElhinney to use far lighter forces to move teeth to their correct positions. So not only is your treatment shorter, it is also far more comfortable. Many people experience little to no discomfort in treatment.

Far More Comfortable

Conventional braces 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.

Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment.

No Expanders, or Headgear

In the past, creating space and developing arches required bulky headgear and palatal expanders. The Damon System's revolutionary approach uses light, biologically-sensible forces to develop beautiful natural arches, in most cases without the need for headgear or palatal expanders. It's far easier and more comfortable to get the beautiful smile you've always dreamed of.

For the Face, Not for the Space

damonbracesWith conventional braces, orthodontists are often forced to pull teeth in order to create space for crowded teeth. No one likes to have teeth removed, and a smile with a full display of teeth often produces a broader, natural smile and a nicer profile. The Damon System uses biologically sensible forces which work with the body's natural adaptive processes to create space naturally, so doctors using the Damon System can now treat most cases without extraction.

In the few cases which still require extraction, space is made to improve facial balance and symmetry to provide a natural smile and profile that will last as you age.

Uncompromised Results

A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:

Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, providing better oral health. Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which can aid in digestion.Ideally aligned teeth create a more perfect bite, which can reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but also eventual gum disease and tooth loss.

Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive correction, the Damon System treats even the most challenging cases such as overbites, underbites, and even crossbites with higher quality results, in far less time and with greater comfort than aligner treatment or even conventional braces.

Get in and out... Faster

With the Damon System, treatment time is typically shorter than with conventional braces. And shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile... faster. You may be surprised at how fast.

  • 6 months shorter treatment time*
  • Significantly fewer office visits
