In brief: Yes, but

Be careful to drink the Damon cool aid.
Dr. Grin, below, noted completely unfounded benefits. the only folks who say these brackets are better are the docs who use them and the company itself. All independent research from Dental schools note Damon is faster for the 1st half of treatment and slower in the 2nd half-- for no net improvement. no worse- but definitely no better.

In brief: No magic

There's no magic to any particular appliance system, including the Damon Appliance.
The magic is the training, experience, and skill of the practitioner. See a fully qualified Orthodontic Specialist for examination.

The braces don't fix an underbite. The Orthodontic treatment does. The braces are a handle on the tooth through which the forces that move teeth are applied. Seek the most qualified Orthodontic Specialist in your area, rather than looking for magic out of a small piece of metal.

In brief: Of course

This Damon braces system has significant advantages over other traditional metal braces.
Advantages are: reduced treatment time, need fewer adjustments and they do not require rubber bands. However, make sure your doctor is allowing you to make informed decisions.

According to manufacturer's advertisements this is a valid claim. According to well refereed research this is not a valid claim. The training, skill, and experience of the specialist Orthodontist is much more important than the gadget attached to the teeth.
