Orthodontics for Adults

Finding your brilliant smile with orthodontics

A smile is perhaps one of the most powerful communication tools at our disposal. Whether you are in a bad mood or an awkward conversation, a smile would always help! A smile can be attractive, confident, and happy.

Many people develop misalignment in their teeth and jaws (what dentists call “malocclusions”) from a young age which may negatively impact self esteem, quality of life and may even result in other conditions such as speech difficulties. This is the value of orthodontics. Orthodontics corrects misalignment which in turn enhances your attractive smile and quality of life that will last a lifetime (provided you properly care for your teeth).

Common concerns of people considering orthodontic treatment are the aesthetic and comfort factors associated with traditional metallic braces during the treatment period. Fortunately, the evolution of modern orthodontics has made available a wide range of options, such as clear ceramic brackets and the inconspicuous Invisalign®, catered to your physical conditions, needs and budget.

What are Damon Braces?

At Coronation House Dentist Nambour, we use the latest technology for orthodontic and braces work.

Damon Braces, also known as the Rolls Royce of braces, are a self-ligating technology that offers faster treatment periods, fewer extractions, and improved patient comfort.

Traditionally braces use elastic bands or fine wires to tie the wire into the brackets.

Damon braces on the other hand is a new and innovative way to straighten teeth. Damon braces uses a unique slide mechanism, allowing your teeth more freedom to move and reducing friction.

Another significant distinction between Damon braces and regular braces is how each handles overcrowding. Traditional braces may necessitate the extraction of teeth to make more room. When this is the case, sometimes palatal extenders are required to deal with the extra pressure. Damon braces provides a gentler approach. In many circumstances, there is no need for extractions or extenders. The procedure applies a gentle pressure, allowing teeth to slide into place more gently and naturally.
Initially, any sort of braces will be uncomfortable. Damon braces, on the other hand, provide less pressure, resulting in less pain and discomfort throughout the procedure. Patients reported 60 percent reduced soreness in one trial. Traditional braces put a lot of pressure on the teeth, which causes a lot of discomfort.
When it comes to damon braces vs traditional braces, one area where damon braces shine even brighter is the treatment speed. In a study, patients with damon braces were able to remove their braces 7.2 months sooner than those with regular braces. Overall, damon braces are more effective, especially for overcrowding.

What are Self-ligating Braces?

Traditional braces system ties the wire onto the brackets which creates friction and use heavier forces to move teeth. Whereas, self-ligating braces use innovative technology to minimise friction from the wire and bracket system. Each individual bracket has a door that allows the wire to slide in loosely, while moving the teeth with less pressure. This means treatment is more comfortable, and faster without compromising the result!
