What are Self-Ligating Braces?
Traditional braces are most often tied in with elastics, which can make treatment and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
Traditional treatments often require the removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. Damon alignment offers full, natural smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, a process specifically designed to improve your overall facial result.
Benefits of Damon Self-Ligating Braces
- Less chair-time at appointments.
- No elastic ties for improved oral hygiene
- Fewer appointments and shorter treatment
The process for fixed appliances
1 Get to know us and the process
Book your initial appointment with Solas Orthodontics.
You’ll have an initial consultation with Dr O’Connor at our Perth orthodontic clinic to determine whether braces should be applied as part of your smile journey.
2 We take a 3D scan
Our state-of-the-art scanning technology means no impressions are required.
Solas is home to the latest 3D digital scanning technology and in-house X-ray facilities to better know your smile, the underlying causes of alignment issues, and help you understand the process moving forward.
3 Let’s start your smile journey
A single appointment and you’re away!
Once you’re happy with the proposed treatment plan, Dr O’Connor and our team will put the braces on and make any adjustments required.
4 Keeping everything in check
The magic begins.
Visit us every 4-8 weeks (approx.) for adjustments and to check how the treatment is progressing.
5 Follow ups and after-care
We look after you throughout and after treatment.
The full Damon braces treatment will usually take between 12 and 24 months. One you have the braces off, we provide 12 months after-care follow ups.

Do you have payment plans available?
Will my health insurer cover my braces?
Medicare does not cover orthodontics but your private health policy might include orthodontics. You will need to confirm your cover with your insurance provider directly.
We work with all health insurers and offer HICAPS, which can reimburse your policy cover amount on the same day. If you have any specific query regarding your insurance cover please contact your health insurance directly.
