Completely aesthetic passive
self-ligation bracket with unparalleled design.
Polycrystalline alumina (PCA)
material is resistant to staining from coffee, mustard, red wine and other
Eliminates the need for elastomerics,
which stain and collect bacteria during treatment.
Advanced passive self-ligation
technology with low ligation force, minimizing frictional resistance for more
efficient tooth movement.
Sturdy construction with
fortified slide, window channel and tiewings for exceptional strength and
Four solid walls enable
effective torque expression and rotation control for meticulous finishing.
Customized base design with
patented laser-etched pad provides optimal bond strength for greater
Smooth, rounded contours for
outstanding patient comfort.
Optional brackets with discrete
contoured hooks for elastics and other auxiliaries.
Fast, comfortable debonding
experience for patients when using the Damon Clear Debonding Instrument.
No flash removal using a burr
or scaler required.
Precision Bracket Placement
Removable positioning gauge
with scaler notch and rhomboid-shaped bracket and pad guide bracket placement
for smile arc enhancement.
Color-coded positioning gauges
on brackets (3-3) denote torque values.
Fast and Easy Wire Changes
SpinTek™ slide employs reciprocal forces during opening for fast, comfortable
wire changes and adjustments.
To open the slide, a simple twist using the SpinTek Opening Instrument
disperses forces in opposite directions for a net force of 0 kg – even with
Other self-ligation brackets require unidirectional forces to open the slide,
exerting up to 1.34 kg of pressure that can cause extreme patient discomfort.
Damon Clear is the culmination of a comprehensive development effort involving
several multi-site in vivo studies, third-party university research and
extensive design tests.
From torque strength and rotation control to bond reliability and patient
comfort, Damon Clear exceeds all specifications when compared with other
aesthetic self-ligating and twin appliances.
Damon Clear is designed for use with Ormco’s proprietary force-calibrated
archwires for fast, efficient tooth movement. For optimal performance and
reliability, proper Damon mechanics and archwire sequencing must be employed.
From Damon Optimal-Force Copper Ni-Ti® to Low-Friction TMA™ and stainless
steel, each wire is backed by Ormco’s technologically advanced manufacturing
and quality control processes. That means unsurpassed batch-to-batch
consistency for reliable, predictable results.
Each wire must have sufficient time to express itself before progression to the
next wire. For anterior torque expression, use either pre-torqued nickel
titanium archwires to make the appropriate bends in TMA or titanium niobium.
For rotational bends, use TMA or titanium niobium.
Do not make finishing bends in stainless steel wires, since such bends may
result in fractures.
Damon Clear Debonding Protocol
The Damon Clear Debonding Instrument must be used to debond the Damon Clear
bracket. The instrument’s jaws and wedge are specially calibrated to the
profile and base of the Damon Clear bracket, resulting in a fast, comfortable
debonding experience for patients. No flash removal using a burr or scaler is required.
With the wedge of the instrument positioned on the occlusal side of the
bracket, place the instrument jaws behind the gingival and occlusal tie-wings.
Squeeze the instrument handle to close the jaws around the bracket body.
Continue squeezing the instrument handle to engage the wedge and advance it
toward the bracket pad. As the wedge comes into contact with the tooth, it will
peel the bracket from the tooth. NOTE: Twisting the instrument while gripping
the bracket may result in patient discomfort and/or bracket deformation.
