Adult Orthodontics

The Damon System

Damon braces are passive self ligating braces, they eliminate the need for traditional elastic or metal “ties”. The Damon System is a clinically proven treatment that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.

Outstanding comfort and better hygiene

Conventional orthodontic braces are tied with elastics, which can cause friction and pressure, making treatment less comfortable. Damon system braces have a unique slide mechanism that reduces pressure on teeth and allows them to move more comfortably to their correct positions. The absence of ‘ties’ make dental hygiene easier during treatment as they do not attract or collect plaque.

Damon Clear braces

Damon Clear braces work the same way as traditional Damon braces, without elastic ties and with self-ligating arch wires and brackets but the main advantage is that Damon Clear braces are made from an aesthetic ceramic. As a result users are more comfortable with the appearance during treatment. This can be important for many people and are put off treatment at the thought of wearing a metal brace.

We offer an interest free installment plan for orthodontic treatment. The overall cost of orthodontic treatment is €3800, which includes €500 deposit as well as fixed and removable retainers.

A €500 deposit is paid when you have your braces placed. The remaining balance of €3300 is divided over eighteen months with a cost of €412.50 each month for 8 months.

This treatment is also tax deductible and 20% can be claimed back with a Med 2 form.
