Features & Benefits

Quintessential Performance and Reliability

Quintessential Performance and Reliability
  • Four solid walls with optimized slot depths — including tighter tolerances on lower anterior brackets — offer improved rotation control and fast, low-friction tooth movement for superior finishing.
  • Stainless steel 17-4 metal-injection-molded construction provides exceptional strength and durability over the course of treatment.

A Quantum Leap in Efficiency

Novel Treatment Flexibility
  • Horizontal and vertical slots provide greater versatility for treatment involving high cuspids, blocked-out laterals and more. Incorporate drop-in hooks, piggyback wires or TAD auxiliaries — all while progressing through the Damon archwire sequence regardless of round or rectangular wires.
  • Incorporate drop-in hooks, piggyback wires or TAD auxiliaries — all while progressing through the Damon archwire sequence regardless of round or rectangular wires.
Reduce Treatment Time
Reduce Treatment Time

Damon Q's auxiliary slots can incorporate sectional wires to quickly align teeth — such as blocked-out laterals — while maintaining the patient's natural wire sequence. These novel features can reduce the number of appointments and shorten overall treatment time.

Precision Bracket Placement
Precision Bracket Placement
  • Removable positioning gauge, rhomboid-shaped bracket and pad, and vertical scribe line guide precision bracket placement for smile arc enhancement.
  • Each positioning gauge is color-coded to aid in bracket selection and torque value identification.
    • Green: Low Torque
    • Blue: Standard Torque
    • Red: Super Torque
Ideal Tooth Inclination
Ideal Tooth Inclination
  • Variable torque brackets introduce torque correction gradually, beginning with the first light rectangular wires, to achieve optimal occlusal and esthetic results.
    • Minimize the guesswork of adding torque to wires later in treatment.
    • Allow roots to begin uprighting early during rectangular wire-leveling phase.
    • Maintain anterior torque during major mechanics, avoiding round-tripping teeth, while maintaining posterior torque during maxillary width increases and bone adaptation.

There is +/- 10.5° of wire play between a .019 x .025 wire and the .022 x .028 lumen of the super-torque (+11°) Damon Q upper cuspid bracket for expressed torque of approximately 0.5°.

Quick and Easy Wire Changes

  • Innovative SpinTek slide with chamfered lingual leading edge facilitates easy slide closure and wire engagement throughout all phases of treatment.
  • SpinTek slide requires only a slight twist to open, transferring reciprocal forces to the bracket — not the tooth — for faster wire changes and greater patient comfort.

Active self-ligation brackets

Active self-ligation brackets exert up to 1.34 kg of unidirectional force during slide opening. But Damon Q's SpinTek slide disperses forces in opposite directions for a net force of 0 kg — even despite calculus buildup.

To open, insert the SpinTek slide instrument into the slide release cavity and twist 90º. To close, position the instrument on either side of the slot and squeeze the opposing prong.

Quality Comfort & Aesthetics

Quality Comfort & Aesthetics

Small bracket profile and size with smooth, rounded corners help prevent occlusal interference while offering patients greater comfort and aesthetics.

Damon Q's profile and occlusal-gingival dimensions are much smaller compared with other self-ligation brackets.
