header damonclear

The clear way to the smile of your dreams!

Damon Braces self-ligating braces are an innovation in the orthodontic world. The tie-less brackets combine with high-tech archwires to move teeth not only faster but more comfortably, too. You get the reliability of metal braces, paired with the most efficient and effective technology. At Gire Orthodontics, we are pleased to offer Damon Clear Braces – pairing the best of self-ligating braces with the discreteness of clear orthodontic treatment.

Rather than using a traditional bracket and tie system, Damon Clear uses a slide mechanism to hold archwires in the bracket. This allows them to move freely, thus reducing friction and binding and allowing your teeth to move more quickly and comfortably.
