Damon System


“Thanks to a great team, your skill and competence are one thing, but it’s your warmth and empathy that make you outstanding!” Patsy Whelehan, who had Damon Clear on her upper teeth and Damon Q on her lower ones, at Beam Orthodontics.

If you are looking for fixed braces that work quickly, the Damon System could prove just the solution. The Damon System at Beam Specialist Orthodontic Practice includes low visibility clear and metal fixed braces for adults and children that are based on a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth.

The specialist orthodontists at Beam in Dundee have been trained to take the whole patient into account: the shape of your face, your profile and what you will look like into your 40s, 50s…and beyond. Many people see a noticeable change not just in their teeth but also in soft tissues of the lips, nose, chin and cheeks. Its called aging! So if there are two orthodontic options available, one involving extractions and slightly retracting the front teeth, and the other without any extractions and slightly rounding out all the teeth widening the smile. Then we will chose the option that fits and supports your smile and face the best.

Now Damon’s marketing department makes some fairly bold and poorly supported claims (see Damon System Bracelift™). Damon isn’t the answer to life, the universe and everything! But it is a great system and can do things other braces can’t. That’s why Beam’s principal orthodontist Rhu McKelvey used Damon Clear braces to correct his own teeth.

Virtually invisible Damon Clear

Virtually invisible, Damon Clear brackets have definite advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear combines fixed braces with high technology arch wires that are clinically proven to move teeth quickly and comfortably with dramatic results. With Damon Clear from Beam Specialist Orthodontic Practice, people may not even realise you’re wearing braces.

Damon Clear brackets have no visible metal parts or elastic ties that can yellow during treatment making them more discrete and resistant to staining and discolouration throughout your treatment. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment can be up to six months faster than traditional braces.

The benefits

While invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth, not everyone is a candidate. In contrast, Damon System braces work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align all of your teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your lip support and facial appearance. We provide the full range of Damon braces at Beam Ortho Dundee.

Our specialist orthodontists will take into account your unique facial proportions when aligning your teeth, bite and smile with Damon braces. Very quickly you’ll have the best smile, facial profile and aesthetics you could achieve with orthodontics.

Clinical studies also show that the Damon System provides more comfortable orthodontic treatment than traditional braces, and this would be backed up by Beam’s Princial orthodontist Mr Rhu McKelvey who used Damon clear braces to align his own teeth. Damon uses tieless braces which are very smooth in the mouth and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. Other styles of braces use elastics or active clips that bind archwires in place, which can slow down treatment and cause irritation.
