Wired for Extraordinary Results

Ormco's revolutionary Damon archwire collection and proprietary four-phase sequencing are a key component of the Damon System and ensure high-quality clinical results and greater efficiency during treatment.

From initial light round and high-technology edgewise wires to major mechanics and finishing, Damon archwires facilitate fast, efficient tooth movement and are available in a variety of arch forms.

Damon Copper Ni-Ti

Designed for initial phases of treatment, Damon Copper Ni-Ti® archwires are calibrated specifically for the Damon System to deliver superb clinical performance. The addition of copper in Ormco's patented Copper Ni-Ti wires enhances the thermal-reactive properties of nickel-titanium to deliver optimal forces and unmatched tooth movement efficiency. Meanwhile, Ormco's state-of-the-art manufacturing and quality control processes ensure the finest quality high-tech archwires available.

Damon Copper Ni-Ti archwires:
  • Provide the optimal force required to begin unraveling severe malocclusions
  • Exhibit a more constant force/deformation relationship, providing superior consistency from archwire to archwire
  • Demonstrate consistent transformation temperatures that ensure consistency of force from batch to batch
  • Feature preloaded stops to maintain archwire position and prevent unnecessary emergency appointments
