Delightful Damon Braces!

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

386703_blogAt City Dental, we are delighted to offer dazzling Damon Braces in the heart of London. Damon Braces are one of the world’s leading brace systems and this innovative treatment is capable of correcting even the most complex orthodontic issues and creating stunning, straight smiles.

What are Damon Braces and how do they work?

Damon is an advanced fixed brace treatment suited to patients with moderate or complex orthodontic issues. This treatment is an excellent alternative to traditional fixed braces for those looking for a discreet, comfortable and quick solution for a range of problems including overcrowding, underbite, overbite and gaps between the teeth.

Damon Braces are among the most advanced braces on the market. They feature sliding brackets, which are easy to clean, and fine, discreet memory wires. The components work together to generate powerful but gentle forces to move the teeth.

What are the benefits?

Damon Braces offer a number of benefits for patients of all ages. They are:

  • Speed: treatment times are around 4-6 months shorter than conventional fixed braces
  • Comfort: Damon Braces use friction-free technology to move the teeth, making them more comfortable than traditional braces
  • Discretion: Damon Braces are sleeker and finer than conventional fixed braces, making them much less visible
  • Improved oral health: Damon Braces have sliding brackets, which make cleaning easier. This helps to decrease the risk of decay and creates a simpler treatment process

In most cases, patients do not need to have teeth extracted prior to treatment, which is welcome news for the many people who suffer from nerves when faced with a trip to the dentist.

If Damon Braces sound appealing to you, now is the perfect time to give us a call.

You’ll be Amazed by the Stunning Results from STb Social 6 Braces

Monday, September 12th, 2016

386703_blogFor those of you who need braces but don’t want a traditional, visible train track brace, then the STb Social 6 brace may be the best treatment for you. STb braces are able to straighten your teeth discreetly, as they are fitted to the back of your teeth making them practically invisible to those around you.

The STb Social 6 brace is made of small brackets and arch wires that are custom made for you, to fit the individual shape of your teeth. They work in almost the same way as the traditional brace, but the advantage with STb Social 6 braces is that no one will see that you are having treatment.

How are STb Social 6 braces fitted?

There are four stages to having your STb Social 6 brace fitted, which include the initial consultation to discuss whether the brace is right for you, after which a treatment plan will be made. Silicone impressions of your teeth will be taken during the second stage and the third stage will see your STb brace designed specifically for you, before being crafted using state of the art technology in stage four.

Once they are ready, the braces will be fitted by the dentist to the back of your teeth. The brace will then gently move your teeth into the desired position.

What are the advantages of STb Social 6 braces?

There are a number of advantages that come with STb Social 6 braces such as:

  • They are practically invisible to others around you.
  • The brace is much faster than traditional fixed brace systems.
  • Effective results are achieved a great deal faster than invisible aligners.
  • As they are a fixed brace a greater level of tooth movement can be achieved in comparison to removable aligners.

Bracing yourself for day you wear Braces in Central Leeds

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

braces front teethWhen that dreaded day comes around when you get the news that you will have to have braces fitted in central Leeds, you may be forgiven in thinking that the next few years could be torturous for you. Everyone’s teeth are different but for people whose teeth are badly grown, the work will take time; it may well be torturous when the brace is fixed in, but it will be methodical and at the end, the results will be brilliant. However, not all fixed braces take that long and some of the modern versions can have you done in just 6 months, whilst still doing some pretty intricate work at the same time. If you are lucky though, you can get away with wearing one of the clear, removable aligners on the market: these not only work in magical ways never been afforded to orthodontic treatments years ago, but they can also work fast too- three times as fast in fact than your clunky traditional braces…and as a footnote to speed: if time is of the essence, then there is one aligner on the market right now that gets your teeth fixed up in just 6 weeks! There is a lot of choice when it comes to getting a brace or aligner fitted so sit down with your dentist and mull over the options first.

The varied world of Braces in Leeds

Monday, December 31st, 2012

Orthodontics is that wonderful field of dentistry in Leeds that deals with getting your teeth straight at all costs in order to protect your occlusion (bite) for the rest of your life and to do this involves the wearing of braces or an aligner. If the treatment you need is very complex, you will be fitted with a bespoke brace in order to get you through your complicated procedure and it could take a few years to complete; many of the traditional fixed braces also take their time, but this means your teeth will be moved with extreme accuracy and precision and will ensure your teeth stay in place for the rest of your life. But there are fixed braces such as the 6 months smile and Damon that get the job done faster, yet work in similar ways. But it is when you move into the field of aligners that things really get interesting. Fixed braces, though brilliant in what they do, often look ugly in the mouth, but if you use Clearstep or Invisalign, you can barely see them in the mouth at all, plus they come with the added bonus of being removable whenever it suits you- they work fast too. All of these though work to a time where the teeth aren’t likely to spring back after the gadget has been removed, which can’t be said about the Inman aligner though: a retainer has to be worn to stop this from happening but there is a good reason for this though- the Inman can get the job done in as little as 6 weeks! You should talk to your dentist about all of these to find out what one is best for you.

The Fantastic Choice Of Braces In Central Leeds

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

If you having to have a brace or aligner fitted to correct the bite of your mouth and retain and prolong the health of your mouth for the future, then you should first shop around before jumping in because there are some fantastic options around in central Leeds today that will get the job done quickly and discreetly. If it’s speed you are looking for, then there are braces around that can get the job done from upwards of 6 weeks: some are self-ligating (tightening) and keep the teeth on the move all of the time; others have to be tightened by your dentist, but in either case, the job is over with fast. For the ultimate in discretion though, there are some aligners from America that are fast, removable, and being made from transparent materials, almost invisible in the mouth as well. Now not all of these braces fit everyone- we are all different, so you will need to be analysed first in order to find one that fits your condition. In complex cases though, you may have no option but to go for the more traditional route- but take heart from this because your teeth will be moved delicately and precisely, and considering this will only happen once in your life, get it over with because your smile will be beautiful in the end.



Picking Your Choice of Brace in Leeds

Monday, March 26th, 2012

So here’s the deal: you’ve accepted that your teeth have made up their minds to head of in all directions, leaving you feeling a tad ugly and also threatening the health of your mouth and jaws in the long run. You also know the ghastly inevitability is waiting for you just around the corner- the dreaded braces!

Once you know you have an orthodontic problem, only an examination beforehand will determine the type of treatment you will need to fix your teeth. But people of Leeds, you can calm yourself in the knowledge that braces and aligners have come a long way from the train-track devices of old, if fact, some look darn right trendy and glamorous!

The ethos behind such treatments has come to us from America with a heavy bias toward discretion and speed for the user. A lot of fixed braces incorporate wires and ceramic plates that are coloured to match your teeth, whilst concentrating on moving your teeth as quickly as possible.

Some aligners are completely transparent and almost impossible to spot in the mouth, while others concentrate on speed, providing results from as little as 6-weeks to 6 months, in comparison to the two years of treatment expected with traditional braces. Of course, prices can play a big part in your decision, but with such things as payments plans and insurance, there is no reason at all not to get the treatment you need done as quietly and as quickly as possible.

A Fit Mouth can Lead to a Fit Body in Leeds

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Healthy of mind, healthy of body, but there is also another more essential part of this equation too, a healthy mouth. So many things can go wrong quickly in the mouth that can lead to disaster throughout the body. The main aim of all dentists is to protect the occlusion or bite of the mouth, so that your jaws will come together properly. To do this, they will ensure the teeth are straight by using braces and that the mouth is free of decay, and if not use restorative techniques to keep the teeth up to scratch. People who grind their teeth too are putting the occlusion at risk and also putting unnecessary stress on the jaw joints. If all these factors go unchecked, you may not only damage your jaws, but be doing damage to you sinuses, ears, neck and upper back too. Gum disease can cause severe damage to the internal organs: overtime, a repetitive leaking of poison into the bloodstream can damage the liver, kidneys and heart. It is imperative for you and your body, that you maintain a high level of hygiene in the mouth and maintain a healthy diet. You should also work closely with your dentist and wean from them as much advice and information as you can, so that at the merest sign of anything going wrong in your mouth, you can identify it immediately and get the problem sorted out before it gets out of control.
