Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Stay safe.

Straighten teeth with Damon Braces

The Damon braces system is different to other metal fixed braces because of a special sliding mechanism is uses. The sliding bracket mechanism holds the wires in place, without the need for metal or elastic bands, making tooth movement smooth and gentle. It is a great system for those with moderate to severe orthodontic cases.

If you are looking for braces for complex orthodontic cases, then Damon braces could be suitable for you. For more information, book a free patient assessment with our Patient Coordinator, or you can book a consultation with the Orthodontist for £75.

Benefits of Damon Braces

The beauty of Damon brace is that there is a lower rate of extractions required. With normal metal braces, there is usually a high extraction rate of between 40-70% of cases, however with Damon braces there is only between 10-20% of cases. This is good for patients, as more healthy teeth are saved.

Also, the comfort for patients is enhanced due to the different bracket and wires mechanism being used. There is also Damon Clear braces available, making the look of these fixed braces even more discreet. This is a great alternative for patients wanting fixed braces, but would prefer the brackets to be clear.

Frequently asked questions about Damon Braces

Can Damon braces treat all orthodontic cases?

For more severe orthodontic cases, the metal Damon braces is mainly used, and for more moderate cases, the clear Damon brace is suitable.

How do I find out if I am suitable for Damon braces?

Please book an appointment with our orthodontist, who will conduct an examination (and any x-rays if necessary). Only then will they be able to go through all your treatment options. This is a good opportunity to discuss any other concerns you might have, and get an accurate guide on cost of dental treatment.

How can I find out if I need teeth removed before braces?

With Damon braces, we shouldn’t need to extract any teeth, however there are some instances when we may need to. For example, if you have severe crowding or your mouth profile is too full to accommodate a wider smile, or if your teeth are in a bad condition and this needs to be corrected before treatment starts. So in order to find out if you need any extractions, please book an appointment with our orthodontist who will be able to advise after their examination.
