Why Damon Braces May Be The Orthodontic Choice For You

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

386703_blogIf you’re looking for an orthodontic treatment, which offers it all, look no further than Damon Braces, This advanced modern fixed brace system produces incredible results with minimal hassle, pain or stress and it offers a more modern solution than traditional fixed braces for patients who need moderate or intensive correction for issues with the bite, crowding and crooked teeth.

The ins and outs of Damon Braces

Damon Braces are among the most advanced and impressive orthodontic treatments on the market. This fixed brace system is designed to move the teeth quickly using gentle, friction-free forces, which prevent discomfort. They feature self-ligating wires and triangular-shaped brackets, which are discreet and easy to clean and they are suitable for patients with even the most complex needs.

Damon Braces employ technology to move the teeth rapidly and treatment times are expected to be around 4-6 months shorter than with traditional fixed braces.

We recommend Damon Braces for patients with moderate or complex needs, which require significant tooth movement.

The benefits of Damon Braces

In addition to offering a speedy solution for common orthodontic issues, Damon Braces also provide a discreet alternative to traditional braces and they utilise friction-free forces to make treatment more comfortable; the wires and brackets are smaller than conventional braces for a more subtle look. The majority of patients do not have to have teeth removed prior to treatment and it is possible to see images of the predicted results before treatment even begins.

If you think Damon Braces sound like the perfect solution for you and you would like to find out more about this incredible system and how it could benefit you, why not call and book an appointment or visit us when you are next in Leeds city centre. We look forward to hearing from you!



We Can Prevent But Also Treat Gum Disease In Central Leeds

Monday, January 5th, 2015

1788888_blogWhen it comes to gum disease, we have the expertise to prevent and treat cases and we cater for patients with diverse needs, from those who have good oral health and no signs of decay or gum disease, to those who have advance gum disease and require ongoing treatment. We aim to make you feel comfortable and to do everything we can to improve your oral health.

About gum disease

Gum disease is a very common oral disease, which is characterised by swollen and sore gums; it is caused by acids released by harmful bacteria in plaque, which irritate the gums. Most cases of gum disease are linked to poor oral hygiene, but smoking and diet can also play a role.

Plaque forms when bacteria and food debris are joined together by saliva; it is a sticky film-like substance, which can grip onto the surfaces of the teeth and the gum line.

Preventing gum disease

The best way of preventing gum disease is to focus on oral hygiene and ensure you keep your mouth as clean as possible. Twice daily brushing and daily flossing are effective ways of cleaning away food traces and bacteria before they are able to develop into plaque. We also highly recommend seeing a dentist for a check-up every 6-9 months and seeing a hygienist for a cleaning treatment every 12 months. Avoiding sugary and acidic foods and drinks, which increase the risk of acid erosion of the enamel and gum irritation, is also advisable.

Treating gum disease

In mild cases of gum disease (gingivitis), good oral hygiene is usually sufficient to clear symptoms and reverse any damaging effects; however, in more advanced cases, where gingivitis has developed into periodontal disease, treatment is not as straightforward. Periodontal disease (also known as periodontitis) causes irreversible damage to the gums and the bone tissue beneath them, which hold the teeth in place. Once the bone is damaged, the teeth start to become less secure in their sockets and will eventually come loose.

Severe gum disease requires careful management and treatment takes place over a prolonged period of time; our dentists and dental hygienists work together to perform procedures, which remove harmful bacteria, plaque and tartar from the mouth to cleanse the and protect the gums and to ensure that patients feel as comfortable as possible.

About Componeers

Componeers are a relatively new treatment, which was developed in Switzerland with the aim of providing people with a simple and rapid means of achieving a great looking smile.
