Damon fixed braces take convenience to a whole new level — no elastic ties, no appointments to tighten your braces and often, no need for extractions. These are self-ligating braces.


Traditional fixed metal braces come in 3 main parts: brackets, wires and elastic ties around the brackets to help the wires pull the teeth into alignment. Elastic ties can cause friction and discomfort so Damon does away with them in favour of self-ligating braces. A slide mechanism holds the wire in place and the wire itself has shape memory, which together means your teeth are moved more quickly and comfortably without the need for so many appointments to have your braces adjusted.

The clinical approach used with Damon fixed braces means there is far less need to extract any teeth or expand your palate in preparation for your treatment. 
Damon fixed braces provide a more comfortable treatment journey than traditional fixed metal braces by getting rid of elastic ties, which can cause irritation and make teeth cleaning more difficult.
Damon fixed braces save you time in the dental chair as you won’t need to come in for appointments to tighten up elastic ties. 


After your initial consultation to determine if Damon braces are right for you, we’ll take impressions of your teeth so that our experienced orthodontist Chris West can create a personalised treatment plan for you. 
At your fitting appointment Chris will attach the Damon brackets and wires and advise you on how to take care of your teeth during your treatment. You’ll come in for regular appointments so we can check the progress of your treatment and make any necessary adjustments to your braces. At the end of it all you’ll walk away with a more confident smile.

“Very friendly orthodontist. Rang to sort out my permanent retainer which had started to wear out after about 10 years, saw me as a new patient 2 hours later. Really don't like getting work done on my teeth but he made me feel very relaxed. Overall a much better experience than what I had with my previous orthodontist. Would definitely recommend.”
