What is Damon Clear?

Damon Clear is a system of tieless braces that uses clear brackets and wires to be less noticeable than metal braces. Traditional metal braces have ties—or clips—that bind wires into place. These kinds of braces must be tightened periodically to ensure that the teeth continue to move. Damon Clear braces don’t have these ties. Instead, the brackets have a slide mechanism that allows the wires to move freely. Because the mechanisms are passive, the braces don’t have to be tightened.

Why do patients choose Damon Clear?

Damon Clear has several advantages that patients like. The passive slide mechanism and lack of tightening means that patients get faster results with fewer visits to the orthodontist. Because the slide allows teeth to move on their own, there is less pain and pressure. Patients also enjoy Damon Clear for cosmetic reasons. They are very difficult to see, like Invisalign, but without having to change aligners every two weeks.

Who should get Damon Clear Braces?

Anyone who is a candidate for braces is a candidate for Damon Clear braces, including patients who are not candidates for Invisalign. The best way to decide if Damon Clear is right for you is to make an appointment with your orthodontist. He or she will evaluate your bite and help you determine appropriate treatment goals. Next, he or she can recommend the right treatment, from Damon System braces to Invisalign.
