Damon® Smile Jackson MS
Dr. Sandifer offers the Damon System in her practice. This “braces” system is great that it does not create as much friction as seen in other traditional systems that can result in more pain after placement and adjustments. Dr. Sandifer has even had some patients report how shocked they are that they never experienced the soreness that they expected from full braces. The Damon System also require fewer adjustments versus traditional brackets and appointments can be anywhere from every 2-2.5 months. Therefore, this is very accommodating for busy moms and students! In addition, Dr. Sandifer has been able to cut down on the number of permanent tooth extractions needed by utilizing this bracket system. The result is broad, beautiful smiles!

What are the advantages of Damon braces?
Damon braces employ a unique technology which optimizes the teeth straightening process. By replacing the traditional bracket with a “passive self-ligating” bracket, the Damon System allows the patient to be fully comfortable throughout the entire process. There are no elastic ties or palate expanders involved in this system and by incorporating a sliding mechanism, the Damon System reduces the amount of friction that each tooth experiences. This allows teeth to slowly and gently glide into alignment without the excessive discomfort associated with the use of traditional braces.
Here is a closer look at the advantages of using Damon braces:
- Better results in a shorter amount of time
- Increased comfort and ease of use
- Reduced number of dental visits
- Reduced need for tooth extraction
What Makes Damon Braces So Different?
There are a number of important differences between the Damon System and traditional braces. Here is a look at the mechanisms that allow the Damon System to achieve the results that they do in such a short amount of time:
- Self-ligating braces
The Damon system consists of passive braces which are entirely tie-less. The elastics and metal wire framework present in traditional braces is entirely replaced by unobtrusive sliders. As a result, there is no chafing and friction present on the inner cheeks and lips, making for a more pleasant experience. For those children wanting colors, we still can place them without the friction!
- Shape-memory wires
Traditional braces require arch-wires to effectively exert pressure on the teeth, moving them into place. The Damon system replaces this type of system with a hi-tech shape-memory wire which moves the teeth by working together with natural body forces.
- Facial aesthetics
When planning your treatment, our team at Sandifer Orthodontics pays close attention to the growth and development of the face. Sometimes, extraction of teeth can be avoided, resulting in good facial and support as the patient ages.
