Damon Braces

Are you considering Damon Braces for orthodontic treatment? We understand that you might have a lot of questions about this innovative braces system. Damon Braces are a popular treatment provided by 33 Dental. Here, you’ll discover all the essential information you need to know about the procedure.

What Are Damon Braces?

Damon Braces, part of the Damon System, are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that utilises a self-ligating sliding mechanism, eliminating the need for elastic ties, unlike traditional braces. These braces consist of wires and brackets designed to gently move your teeth into the desired position.

How Do Damon Braces Work?

Damon Braces use a memory wire that allows for a low-friction, continuous force to move your teeth. This innovative system minimises the discomfort and pressure associated with traditional braces. The self-ligating mechanism adjusts as your teeth shift, which means fewer appointments for tightening and adjustments, making it a convenient choice for busy individuals.

How Do Damon Braces Differ from Traditional Braces?

Unlike conventional metal braces, Damon Braces are designed to be more aesthetically pleasing, as they use a more discreet system with smaller brackets. They also reduce the need for tooth extractions in most cases.

What Are the Benefits of Damon Braces?

Damon Braces offer several advantages, including:

  • Faster treatment time compared to conventional braces.
  • Enhanced comfort with no need for elastic ties that can cause discomfort.
  • Fewer adjustments and office visits.
  • Reduced need for tooth extractions in most cases.
  • Improved oral hygiene due to their self-ligating system.
  • A more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Maintaining Oral Health with Damon Braces

One important aspect of Damon Braces that patients often appreciate is their ability to promote better oral hygiene. With traditional braces, elastic ties can trap food particles, making it challenging to keep your teeth and gums clean. In contrast, Damon Braces’ self-ligating mechanism reduces these traps, allowing for easier cleaning and reducing the risk of plaque build-up. This enhanced oral hygiene not only contributes to a healthier smile during your orthodontic treatment but also minimises the chances of dental issues down the road. Regular dental check-ups and diligent oral care are essential to maximise the benefits of Damon Braces and maintain your oral health throughout the treatment process.

Are Damon Braces Cost-Effective?

The cost of Damon Braces can vary based on factors like the severity of your case and your location. While they may have a slightly higher initial cost than traditional braces, the reduced treatment time and fewer appointments can make them a cost-effective choice in the long run.

What Is the Treatment Time with Damon Braces?

The treatment time with Damon Braces is typically shorter than with conventional braces. Most patients can expect their treatment to be completed in 18-24 months, but individual cases may vary.

Are There Any Risks Associated with Damon Braces?

Damon Braces are generally considered safe and effective. However, as with any orthodontic treatment, there can be some minor risks, such as temporary discomfort, and the possibility of sores or ulcers from irritation. Your orthodontist will provide guidance on how to manage these issues.

How Do I Care for My Damon Braces After Treatment?

After your Damon Braces treatment is complete, it’s important to follow your orthodontist’s aftercare instructions. This typically includes wearing retainers to maintain your beautifully straightened teeth and regular dental check-ups to ensure long-term oral health.

In conclusion, Damon Braces are a remarkable orthodontic treatment option with numerous benefits. They offer a comfortable and efficient way to straighten your teeth and improve your smile without the hassle of elastic ties. To determine if Damon Braces are right for you and to discuss the specific details of your treatment, schedule a consultation with an experienced orthodontist. They will provide personalised guidance and address any further questions you may have about this braces system.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
