SmartClip™ Self-Ligating Braces are the modern choice in orthodontics. They’re computer designed and use a special nickel-titanium metal alloy to make your treatment more comfortable, save time and give you the result you want a beautiful new smile.
The Damon® System is a NEW way of treating patients needing an orthodontic treatment. Not only is the treatment time faster with fewer appointments, but more comfortable and delivering superior results.
- No elastic ‘O’ rings to hold the wire in the bracket. This reduces the friction considerably, moving the teeth faster and with less discomfort. Avoiding elastics helps to maintain better oral hygiene.
- Fewer adjustments due to light high-technology shape-memory wires.
- In most cases, aligns teeth normally without extractions, by allowing the bone to expand and enhancing facial aesthetics.
Studies show that Orthodontic treatments using the Damon® System deliver results six months faster than traditional braces. Damon dental braces are also available in ceramic brackets, for the more self-conscious child or adult.

Self Ligating Braces
Ordinary braces use “elastic bands” (technical name “ligatures”) to secure an archwire into a slot in each bracket. This is called ligation. The bands can become stained or stretched, requiring your orthodontist to change them. They can also retain food particles, making it more difficult for you to keep your braces clean.
SmartClip™ braces are different. They don’t use ligatures to hold the archwire…they are self-ligating. Instead of elastic bands, SmartClip™ braces use small metal clips to hold the archwire into the bracket. So you can forget about the problems associated with elastic bands.
We all would like more time for ourselves. With ordinary braces, part of the time spent at the orthodontist’s office is taken up with the placement and removal of the ligatures. With SmartClip braces, the archwire stays in place without the need for ligatures so you can be in and out of the chair faster, and may even be able to return less often.
You may be surprised, but ligatures can slow down your overall treatment process. Ligatures rub against the archwire and hinder tooth movement. Without the need for ligatures, SmartClip™ self-ligating braces remove this source of friction on the archwire, and this can have a positive effect on total treatment time and required visits
SmartClip Braces are also available in Ceramic (clear), so you can enjoy a quicker, superior treatment that is pleasing to the eye.
