All About Damon Braces

Benefits of Damon Braces


Dr. Sandifer has even had some patients report how shocked they are that they never experienced the soreness that they expected from full braces. Damon System braces also require fewer adjustments versus traditional brackets and appointments can be anywhere from every 2-2.5 months.

That’s great news for busy moms and students around Jackson! In addition, Dr. Sandifer has been able to cut down on the number of permanent tooth extractions with Damon metal braces.

The result is broad, beautiful smiles! Take a look at our smile gallery.

Damon braces feature a unique technology that optimizes the teeth straightening process. By replacing the traditional bracket with a passive self-ligating bracket, the Damon System allows you to be fully comfortable throughout the entire process.

With the Damon braces system, there are no elastic ties or palate expanders. Instead, it incorporates a sliding mechanism to reduce 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

The Damon Difference

There are a number of important differences between the Damon System used at Sandifer Orthodontics 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 brackets The Damon system consists of passive braces which are entirely tie-less. The elastics and metal wire framework present in traditional braces are entirely replaced by unobtrusive sliders. As a result, there is no chafing and friction on the inner cheeks and lips, making for a more pleasant experience. For those who want colors on their braces, 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 bodily 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.
