Damon Braces: Bridging the Gap between Metal and Invisible Braces

Friday, January 20th, 2017

damon-clear-bracketIf you’re looking for an orthodontic treatment, which offers the security of fixed braces and the discretion of removable braces, Damon Braces could be the answer. This versatile system offers a modern alternative to conventional fixed braces.

About Damon Braces

Damon Braces are fixed braces, which offer a host of impressive features. These braces are suitable for the majority of patients, including those who have complex needs. They are made from tooth-coloured and clear components, which makes them much more discreet than traditional metal fixed braces, and they work quickly. Damon Braces feature sliding brackets, which reduce friction, and there are no bands in sight. These braces are also lighter and smaller than conventional fixed braces.

The benefits of Damon Braces

Damon Braces are an excellent example of how far the world of orthodontics has progressed in the last decade. These braces offer:

  • Speed: Damon Braces typically produce results around 4-6 months faster than traditional fixed braces.
  • Comfort: Damon Braces use the latest friction-free technology to minimise discomfort. They also create space, so you don’t have to worry about teeth extracted before treatment.
  • Discretion: Damon Braces aren’t invisible braces, but they are much more discreet than many other types of brace. They are made from clear brackets and wires, so they are barely noticeable when you smile.
  • Versatility: Damon Braces are capable of treating a broad spectrum of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spaces between the teeth, overbite, underbite, crooked teeth and overjet (when the front teeth protrude)

If Damon Braces sound appealing to you, call us now to find out more and book a consultation.

Meet The Hybrid Orthodontic Treatment In The City Of Leeds

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

2904341_blogOften described as a hybrid between traditional orthodontics and modern invisible braces, the Damon Brace system offers an array of benefits for patients who are searching for an effective, discreet and painless solution to moderate or severe orthodontic issues. This system is a modern and innovative alternative to traditional fixed braces and it can provide the support and movement necessary for treating even the most complex cases.

About Damon Braces

Damon Braces are an extremely advanced tooth straightening treatment, which uses state of the art technology to reduce treatment time and ensure patients feel more comfortable and confident during the treatment process. Unlike conventional fixed braces, Damon Braces are made from sliding brackets and self-ligating memory wires; the brackets are smaller and more discreet than traditional square brackets and they are also much easier to clean. The wires generate friction-free force, which applies gentle, pain-free pressure to the teeth.

Who can benefit from Damon Braces?

Damon Braces provide an alternative for any patient that is a suitable candidate for traditional fixed braces and they can be employed to tackle a diverse range of orthodontic issues, including issues with the bite (overbite, underbite or crossbite), overjet, crowding, crooked teeth and spacing. This system is often recommended for those who need a lot of movement, although it can also be highly beneficial for those who require less movement. Your City Dental dentist will be able to assess whether you are a good match for Damon Braces when you come for your consultation.

How long will I have to wear Damon Braces for?

Every patient has different needs and the timeframe for treatment varies; generally speaking, the more movement that is required, the longer the treatment time. Treatment times may vary from 6-24 months. On average, you can expect results around 4-6 months faster than traditional fixed braces.

Fastbraces: what’s the deal in the city of Leeds?

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

4244118_blogIf you thought you had to wait years for a straight smile in the city of Leeds, think again! Fastbraces is an incredible, innovative fixed brace treatment, which produces impressive results in half the time of traditional fixed braces. If you’ve been searching for a fast-acting treatment or you’ve put off having treatment in the past as a result of lengthy treatment time, now is the time to take the plunge and start your journey to a perfect smile! Fastbraces uses the latest technology, combined with over 20 years of research, to move the teeth much faster than traditional fixed braces. Usually, braces move the crowns and the roots separately, but Fastbraces moves both sections of the teeth at the same time. From day one of treatment, the braces work to move the entire tooth, which halves treatment time and means that you can enjoy your new smile a whole lot sooner. The make-up of Fastbraces braces is also different. The advanced braces are made from triangular-shaped brackets and a heat activated wire, which accelerates treatment time, as well as reducing discomfort. With Fastbraces you can expect swift treatment, with an average treatment time of 4 months for minor cases and 12 months for more complex cases, as well as, comfort, discretion and value for money. This is because you will need fewer dental appointments during the treatment process. If these features match your orthodontic treatment wish-list, why not arrange a consultation to find out more and check that you are a suitable candidate for treatment?

Opting for the right Braces in Central Leeds

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

There was a time in central Leeds when being fitted with braces meant a mouth full of wire wool that was fixed in for anywhere up to 3 years. Fortunately, the choice of braces and aligners has become quite vast, more efficient and work a lot faster. Complex problems will always require complex solutions and in cases like these, you will need all that metalwork to move your teeth efficiently and safely. But fixed braces have changed; they use far more discreet materials, use ingenious mechanisms to get the job done and on average can get your teeth straightened anywhere from 6-18 months, which is a lot faster than those traditional braces. Of course, the real revolution has come with some of the removable aligners from the USA. These can be clear, so you can barely see them in the mouth at all as well as working fast. One actually boasts results in just 6 weeks! You have a lot more choice now so it is important to do your research and find one will suit all your requirements.
