Forget All About Traditional, Bulky, Train Track Fixed Braces

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

2904341_blogIn years gone by, if you needed orthodontic treatment the only remedy was bulky, fixed braces. Today, there’s a new breed of treatments on offer to provide teenagers and adult patients with myriad benefits. One of the most impressive systems on the market is Damon Braces.

Damon Braces

Damon Braces are advance fixed braces that offer patients who require intensive treatment and more movement an alternative to traditional fixed braces. This system uses state of the art self-ligating technology to cut treatment times and enhance comfort. It is suitable for those with the most complex orthodontic prescriptions.

Damon Braces look different to traditional fixed braces, as they are lighter and sleeker and they feature sliding brackets, which are easier to clean and less cumbersome. The wires are fine and discreet and they use self-ligating forces to reduce pressure and friction.

How long will treatment take?

As with all treatments, there is no set treatment duration for Damon Braces and some patients will need to wear braces for longer than others. Treatment times tend to be 4-6 months less than they would be with traditional fixed braces, which are typically worn for 12-46 months.

What Do Damon Braces Treat?

Damon Braces are effective in many cases and used to treat varying orthodontic problems, including:

  • overlapping or crowded teeth
  • spaces between the teeth
  • overbite
  • underbite
  • overjet
  • misplaced midline
  • crossbite

In order to assess whether or not Damon Braces are the perfect match for you, your City Dental dentist will examine your teeth and take some tests and X-rays. If this is the right choice for you, they will talk you through the ins and outs of treatment and help you to gain a clear understanding of what treatment involves and how it works. They can also give you an idea of projected time-scale and answer any questions you have.

Outstanding Orthodontics Treatments in the City of Leeds

Friday, November 1st, 2013

3129552_blogOrthodontics is a very precise arm of dentistry in the city of Leeds that deals primarily with straightening your teeth and in its own field there are many ways of going about this. If it looks like you are having problems and your teeth are causing you problems now, and are likely to do so in the future, you are going to need some correction in order to maintain the health of your mouth and its ‘bite’. The only way this can be determined is to have your teeth scanned and x-rayed first, for this will decide exactly what type of brace or aligner will be suitable for the job; this will also come down to what you can afford because some treatments are pricier than others. If the work is complex, then it may involve the removal of some teeth beforehand to make way for the movement. Once all of this has been worked out, then it is down to choosing your method of treatment. Fixed braces will cover intricate work but there are some around that will do the work in as little as 6 months, plus they are a cheaper option. Removable aligners are the darlings of the market right now; they are ‘hot’ on discretion and though they are more expensive, they too get the job done quickly- one can do the work in as little as 6 weeks! Do your homework so that you can get the best that you can buy.
