With Damon braces or Damon Clear, our specialist orthodontist at the Antalya Dental Hospital is able to deliver high-quality results up to six months faster than traditional braces.
Unlike traditional braces, the Damon Braces System is self-ligating which eliminates the need for elastics or metal ties that keep the wire in place. Elastics and metal ties produce friction and pressure that make the movement of the teeth a lot longer and less comfortable. Damon braces’ special slide mechanism and high-technology shape memory wires allow our orthodontist to move teeth quicker and in fewer, more spaced out appointments.

What happens if gum disease is not treated?webpro2022-02-06T21:37:53+03:00
Unfortunately, gum disease does not usually cause pain as it gets worse so you do not notice the damage it is doing. However, the bacteria are sometimes more active and this makes your gums sore. This can lead to gum abscesses, and pus may ooze from around the teeth. Over a number of years, the bone supporting the teeth can be lost. If the disease is left untreated for a long time, treatment can be more difficult.
How do I go about getting orthodontic treatment?webpro2022-02-06T20:43:29+03:00
Many dentists today offer special treatment for nervous patients. The first fear to deal with is the fear of telling other people that you are afraid of dental treatment. If you can discuss it with your friends or colleagues you are likely to find someone else who has similar problems. They may be able to recommend a dentist to you. A dentist who is personally recommended by another nervous person is usually a very good choice.
Are wisdom teeth difficult to take out?webpro2022-02-06T19:00:53+03:00
It all depends on the position and the shape of the roots. Your dentist will tell you how easy or difficult each tooth will be to remove after looking at the x-rays. Upper wisdom teeth are often easier to remove than lower ones, which are more likely to be impacted. Your dentist will say whether the tooth should be taken out at the dental practice, or whether you should be referred to a specialist oral surgeon at a hospital. Very occasionally there is a possibility of some numbness of the lip after the removal of a lower tooth. Your dentist will tell you if it is possible in your case.
Either a local anaesthetic – like you would have for a filling – or sedation will probably be recommended. A general anaesthetic – where you would be asleep – can also be used, but this will only be given in a hospital.
