Damon Brackets

At Raywood Orthodontics we value education and want to make sure our patients and their families feel informed about their options for treatment plans. One of the treatments we offer here is the breakthrough Damon system. This revolutionary approach combines tieless brackets and high technology archwires that are clinically proven to align your teeth more efficiently and comfortably. This is a huge improvement over traditional treatment options, which often require removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of other bulky, time consuming and painful procedures, such as expanders.


Why the Damon System?

Given that I am the only sole provider of this technology in the Muncie area, I’ve put together some of the reasons why the Damon System could be a great choice for you or your child! Take a look below:


1. Fewer Extractions. No one wants to have permanent teeth extracted. A smile with a complete set of teeth often results in a broader, more natural and beautiful smile along with a nicely balanced profile. This approach will also give the lips more support which can be very important in minimizing the effects of thinning lips as you or your child ages (Yes, our children will grow up and so quickly at that!).


2. Less Pain. Being a parent myself, I know how much it stinks to see your kids in pain. As opposed to traditional brackets which hold wires in place in order to gradually move teeth to the correct positioning, the Damon System uses a slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket. Less friction allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

3. Easy to Clean. Traditional braces use elastomeric rings to hold wires in place on their brackets - these can be difficult to clean because they trap food and plaque. Unlike those traditional systems, Damon braces are much easier for your teen to keep clean.


4. A Clear Smile Option. Adults who are hoping to straighten their smile usually don’t want to be burdened with a mouth full of metal. If a clear smile is important to you, Damon Clear** can be a great option. The brackets are clear with a thin metal wire that runs through them. Pretty hard to spot at work or in a selfie! Plus, as opposed to other invisible aligners, the Damon System is capable of fixing all issues impeding a straight smile.

5. Twenty-four/Seven. The Damon System works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance. Plus, there are no additional parts which means there is no need to worry about lost, misplaced or forgotten clear aligners.
