For many years the damon-bracket was marketed as breakthrough and an historical turning point in orthodontics. After some dozens of quality studies about this bracket now we know that apart from time savings in the dental chair none of the claims hold true. In this review the most important clinical studies are presented and discussed. The heroics and big words about the „Damon-system“ come out to be a big swindle. It is a shame for the whole profession that the shady claims of the manufacturer have been adopted uncritically by so many colleagues.
