Damon® System

The Damon System is an innovative combination of passive self-ligating brackets, high-tech archwires and minimally invasive treatment protocols that work together as a low-friction, low-force system. The end result is clinically proven performance that includes faster treatment time, fewer appointments, improved patient comfort, exceptional results and wider arch development with fewer extractions as well as less reliance on RPEs (Rapid Palatal Expanders) or surgery.

  • Faster Treatment Time
  • Fewer Appointments
  • Greater Patient Comfort
  • Easy to Keep Clean for Better Oral Hygiene
  • No Extractions in Most Cases

Treatment Philosophy


By combining passive self-ligating brackets with high-tech archwires, the Damon System is a unique mechanical system – a passive conduit – that permits low forces to work in conjunction with the muscles of the face, tongue, bone and tissue. Low forces minimize discomfort and greatly increase the types of cases that can be treated to a symmetrical facial result without high-force expansion or extractions.


With a passive self-ligating system like the Damon System, moving a cuspid into place does not adversely affect the adjacent teeth (see example below).
