At James River Orthodontics, we’re passionate about helping patients find the best solution for their situation. That’s why we offer a wide range of treatment options, including the innovative Damon® self-ligating braces.
The Damon® System is a faster, more comfortable way to straighten teeth. These braces are similar to traditional metal braces with one key difference. Rather than connecting the brackets and wires through elastic bands, Damon® brackets secure right into a unique sliding wire.
The self-ligating wire can move teeth faster and with less force. Plus, these braces can adjust independently, meaning you won’t need to visit the office to have your elastic bands tightened.
Like traditional braces, self-ligating braces are a viable solution to numerous misalignments. We recommend Damon® braces for teens and adults to correct open bites, crossbites, underbites, crowding, gaps and other issues. Our orthodontic team will work with you to understand your situation and see if self-ligating braces are the best fit.
Of all the ways to improve your smile, Damon® braces are some of the most convenient and effective. Ask our orthodontists about Damon® self-ligating braces to experience benefits like:

At James River Orthodontics, we offer two types of Damon® self-ligating braces — metal and clear. Metal Damon® braces feature stainless steel brackets and a self-ligating archwire system. Damon® clear braces comprise ceramic brackets that blend with your teeth for inconspicuous treatment.
Both types of Damon® braces are smaller than traditional braces for discreet, comfortable treatment. Our team can help you decide which type is right for you.
Self-ligating braces can vary in price depending on the patient. Overall, the cost is comparable to traditional braces. Some dental insurance policies may cover treatment, and we do our best to find the most affordable solution for every patient.
The team at James River Orthodontics is here to help you unlock your smile’s full potential with Damon® self-ligating braces. We proudly serve patients in Henrico County and Richmond, Virginia.
