What Is the Damon System?

At Derek Damon Orthodontics, we're proud to help patients of all ages in Bellingham and Anacortes, WA achieve gorgeous new smiles. Often, when patients visit us for their initial consultation, they assume that traditional metal braces are their only option for treatment – but this is not the case. Modern orthodontic technology has created a wide range of treatment options for our patients, from translucent braces to nearly-invisible alternatives like Invisalign. But one of the most advanced treatment options takes the original design of braces and improves upon it, using new technology to deliver a variety of benefits to patients: the Damon System. 

Damon Braces in Bellingham

The Damon System is a pioneering new orthodontic treatment option that uses technology to push the limits of what's possible with braces. Damon braces use the same network of brackets and wires as traditional braces, but with one key difference. Instead of using elastic ties to hold the archwire, Damon brackets are made with a breakthrough "self-ligating" technology that lets them hold the archwire in place using only the design bracket. And while it may sound small, this one change has some pretty impressive effects.

Eliminating the elastic tie drastically reduces friction between the bracket and wire, allowing the archwire to slide within the bracket during treatment. This makes tooth movement more efficient and allows the wire to work more effectively on the teeth. The increased efficiency helps teeth move to their desired positions faster and can speed up treatment by up to 50%, while minimizing the necessary force makes the braces more comfortable for patients at every stage of treatment.
