Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Following the announcement by the government on 28th May, we are incredibly pleased and excited to announce that we will be re-opening our practice soon!

At Dentalcare Group patient safety and comfort is of paramount importance, and we have spent the time during closure upgrading the clinic and introducing the following measures to keep our patients and staff SAFER than ever.

The clinic as you are aware has always been a very clean and safe environment. However, we have placed hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded our PPE and redesigned the patient journey in line with social distancing.

We will be conducting pre-screening tests of patients which is likely to include taking your temperature on arrival.

We have had to cancel numerous appointments since the lockdown began 3 months ago and will initially be prioritising appointments for our existing patients who have had dental emergencies or appointments cancelled, in order of urgency. Please do not attend the clinic unless you have an appointment.

We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon!

We will be in touch as soon as we are ready to see you!

Damon Braces

at Dentalcare Langley Orthodontics

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.
