About The Damon System
The Damon System is used worldwide by thousands of orthodontists, and was invented by Dr. Dwight Damon (Paul’s father and Clay’s uncle) right here in your backyard, the Inland Northwest!
Damon braces are smaller, making them easier to clean and less noticeable. We want your experience with braces to be manageable and not interfere with your lifestyle. Damon® System braces can reduce your treatment time, and have been clinically proven to avoid expanders, headgear or extractions. Damon® System braces have many advantages, but the most important is providing you with a beautiful smile!
The Damon® bracket system has changed the way we can treat orthodontic patients today. This revolutionary system utilizes a unique passive self-ligating bracket and very light forces to achieve results beyond previously conceived expectations. Orthodontic treatment is now less time-consuming and more comfortable than ever before.
The Damon® System now has two options with either a metal bracket or an aesthetic bracket. We would like to invite you to learn more about what this proven technology has to offer. You will see the beginnings of your new smile in the first few weeks of treatment, and, in the end, will have a great new smile that will last a lifetime.
There is a general misconception that all braces and orthodontic treatments are the same. With all the options available today, it is more important than ever to carefully select what type of braces and technology are used. The Damon® System not only produces beautiful smiles and straight teeth, but allows orthodontists to enhance facial changes as well. We have never before had such an influence on the bone and soft tissues that support and surround the teeth.

The Most Comfortable Orthodontic Treatment Ever
For years, the traditional thinking was that heavy forces based on what a patient could tolerate were needed to move teeth. By creating the new Damon® System of high-technology braces and wires, very light natural forces can now be applied to move teeth at a rate never seen before in orthodontics. This means less pressure on your teeth for more comfortable treatment.
Fewer Office Visits
Traditional braces use colored elastics to hold on to the archwire. The elastics have to be changed frequently because they wear out and become stained over time. The Damon System doesn’t need elastics to secure the wire to the brackets.
Since the Damon® braces have a unique sliding door, they require fewer adjustments. The light force, high-technology wires continue to work for a longer period of time. This means fewer office visits than with conventional braces.
We want to make your treatment is as comfortable as possible and fit easily into your busy schedule. Amazingly, patients of all ages are enjoying more comfortable treatment in far less time! And people all around the world are experiencing startling transformations of the face and the smile that have never been seen before.
Patients are experiencing treatment far different than they would have with traditional braces or Invisalign®. Drs. Paul and Clay Damon are proud to treat patients to the very highest level of care in a shorter period of time with far greater comfort.
How is Self-Ligating Treatment Different?
Traditional orthodontic therapy involves tying archwires into braces with colored elastics or small stainless steel wires. This can bind up the archwire and cause the teeth to move at a slower rate. Heavy forces must be applied to overcome inherent friction in the traditional bracket system. These heavy forces can overpower or crush the very delicate underlying blood vessels cutting off oxygen and nutrients. This can be more painful, actually slow down tooth movement and lengthen the time of treatment.
Damon® braces, take a completely different approach. It has a patented built-in sliding door that holds the wire allowing it to move more freely to straighten your teeth. We use very gentle pressure, working with the natural forces of your body. This allows your dental arch form to develop the way they were designed to function. In most cases, this is accomplished in far less time with fewer appointments and with far greater comfort!
Elastic ligatures create friction and require more force and more frequent adjustments
Damon® braces allow freedom of movement, resulting in faster treatment with gentler forces.
