It is amazing how much work and effort and science is put into every little part of dentistry to improve the treatments that you as a patient get, and just to use one example, take a look at the Damon brace. It has built up its philosophy from listening to what its patients want in a brace; two namely being discretion and the time it takes to work- the Damon does both. It uses tiny plates placed on the teeth, through which is thread a small wire; both are discreetly coloured to match the teeth. What really sets this device apart from other fixed braces though is that it is self-ligating, meaning that it tightens itself throughout the treatment and the way it achieves this is by allowing the wire to slip freely through the plates. This means that the teeth are being constantly being put under pressure and so, it gets the treatment over with as quickly as possible; plus it means fewer visits to the dentist. What it can’t avoid is the issue that most fixed braces have and that is cleaning, so you have to be on the ball about this to avoid complications during the time you are wearing it. There are also other variations of this brace that work in other ways too, so if you’d like to know all about Damon braces and what’s on offer, then give Mulberry Dental Care a look: they work in the Weybridge area and can answer any questions you may have.
