Damon braces were invented by an orthodontist, Dr. Dwight Damon. This type of bracket utilizes (sliding door) technology known as "self legation" that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. No elastic of steel ties are needed for these types of braces. This creates less friction and can result in more comfort for the patient. In addition, Damon braces can sometimes cut down on the treatment time and the number of adjustments that need to be performed.
