Damon braces were invented by Dr. Dwight Damon. The Damon bracket uses sliding-door technology known as “self-ligation” that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. A great benefit of the Damon System is that it does not use elastic or steel ties. This technology creates less friction and is more comfortable for the patient. Damon braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments performed.


Ceramic braces are made of a clear material. These clear braces are most popular with adult patients, because they are very discreet. The only disadvantage to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between appointments.
