Unparalleled Damon System Experience

Drs. Jasmine Gorton and Bill Schmohl were both directly involved in the development of this beautiful, revolutionary bracket and were the first orthodontists in Marin to offer it to their patients when it became available in 2010.  At that time they already had extensive experience with the metal version of the Damon brackets.

What is the Damon System?

The Damon System involves the use of passive self-ligating braces. The goal of this type of treatment is to allow the teeth to align with less pressure than prior teeth straightening methods required.

The process starts with a light, high technology arch-wire without the use of elastic o-rings. These wires are held in place by small sliding mechanisms and stops that hold the wires safely in place. As time passes, the teeth will begin to move into proper position and heavier wires are gradually substituted until the patient’s smile is a perfect smile with a functional bite.
