Clear Self-Ligating Braces (Damon Clear)

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.

FAQ about Damon Clear Braces

Do Damon Clear braces need to be tightened like traditional metal braces?

No, Damon Clear braces work using a self-ligating system, which means no tightening. It’s just a series of wires that gradually get the teeth straight.

Are Damon Clear really stain resistant?

Other clear braces can be prone to staining depending on the foods and drinks you consume and your oral care habits due to the ties (usually a clear tie) that hold the wire in place. However, Damon Clear are tie-less, which means they will remain stain-free and clear the entire length of your treatment. The brackets themselves will not stain.

Do Damon Clear offer shorter treatment times?

While every case is different, self-ligating braces can offer shortened treatment times for many patients. Some patients can enjoy treatment time that is 4-6 months shorter than other options may provide.

Will my insurance cover the cost of Damon Clear?

Dental insurances should cover the cost of Damon Clear, however, Gire Orthodontics will always verify benefits as a courtesy to our patients prior to initiating treatment.
