Dental Problems / Incorrect Swallow

When a person swallows incorrectly, the tip and/or sides of the tongue press against or spread between the teeth. This is commonly called a tongue thrust. Constant pressure from resting or incorrectly thrusting the tongue away from the hard palate may push teeth out of place. That pressure may later prevent teeth from erupting (breaking through the gum).

Fixed Braces

Dublin orthodontics

What are fixed braces?

Fixed Braces consist of small precisely designed metal or ceramic buttons called brackets are stuck/bonded to each tooth. Sometimes metal rings called bands are also fitted around the back/molar teeth. The brackets are then connected to each other using a thin metal wire, called an archwire. The wire is held in place with small elastic rings called modules, or with very thin wires called ligatures. The wires are adjusted at regular intervals to straighten the teeth and correct the bite. 

Damon Braces

What are Damon Braces?

Damon Braces offer patients an efficient alternative solution. The friction-free, self-ligating Damon Brace combines the effectiveness of traditional braces with an innovative concept which allows for a comfortable and effective method of teeth straightening. The self-ligating nature of this system ensures the forces are as light as possible.
