How Is Treatment Different with Damon Braces?
Treatment with the Damon System is different because, unlike traditional braces, Damon braces are self-ligating. This eliminates the need for elastics and speeds up the treatment process. Treatment with Damon braces is more comfortable, faster and requires fewer visits to your orthodontist for adjustments than treatment with traditional metal braces.

Do Damon Braces Hurt?
After adjustments, you may experience a slight feeling of soreness or pressure. However, Damon braces are extremely comfortable to wear, and most orthodontic patients report very little discomfort during their treatment.

Is Adult Treatment Available?
Damon braces are available for both adults and teens. If you are looking to minimize the appearance of your braces, you can choose clear brackets. Additionally, Damon brackets are small and inconspicuous, so you can enjoy orthodontic treatment in comfort.

How Do I Pay for My Braces?
The cost of Damon braces differs for each patient depending on his or her specific needs. Talk to your orthodontist about financing your braces treatment to find out all of your options. Some medical or dental plans will help you cover the costs, and Damon braces receive the same coverage in orthodontic plans as traditional braces.
