Damon Braces / Fixed braces

Friction-less system for straightening teeth

Fixed Braces / Train Tracks - Damon Braces

Braces Ballincollig

This self-ligating bracket system with high-technology wires is a unique mechanical system that permits low forces to work in conjunction with the muscles of the face, tongue, bone and soft tissues.


These low forces minimise discomfort, and greatly increase the types of cases that can be treated to a symmetrical facial result without high-force expansion or extractions.

Advantages of Damon Braces:

  • Extraordinary results
  • Faster treatment time
  • Fewer appointments
  • Fuller wider Smiles
  • Better facial balance and aesthetics



Dental Appliances have been shown to reduce the number of Migraine attacks by about 60%, especially in those who get frequent attacks

What Makes the Damon Bracket System so Effective

Damon Braces Ballincollig

Traditional orthodontic braces involve ‘tying-in’ arch wires with small clear or coloured elastic bands. This process of ‘tying-in’ the wire inherently causes friction between the wire and hence the tooth. This results in slower tooth movement.


However, with the Damon System, these clever little brackets have a built-in sliding door that holds the wire allowing it to move freely in a friction-less system.


This means that we can use high-technology wires to move the teeth comfortably, with fewer visits and in a shorter space of time, a bit-like a surfer riding a wave with Damon Brackets our teeth are riding the smooth wires.


Not every Dentist uses Damon Braces. The reason I do is simple, with more effective treatment in –hand, I want my patients to benefit from this exciting technology.



That All mouth breathers will have crooked teeth. No exceptions!



Widening of the upper jaw with a removable appliance will stop bed wetting in 80% of children who suffer from it.


When Should You Start with Braces? The Earlier The Better!

Most parents enjoy the pleasure of seeing their children grow. It is a very exciting time as their development is very rapid, and ever changing. Many parents soon realise that their children’s teeth are not sitting correctly and seek advice.


Unfortunately, they are normally told to wait until all the permanent teeth have erupted before embarking on an Orthodontic pathway.


This is poor advice, as so very much more can be done for your child at a much earlier age.


We like to see children as young as 5 years of age. The earlier we see them the easier it is to actually modify and correct many of the bad oral muscular or myofunctional habits.


It is now proven that these are the bad habits that cause the teeth to be crooked in the first instance. Early correction of these myofunctional habits:

  • Encourages nasal breathing
  • Corrects the positioning of the jaws and teeth
  • Encourages normal forward facial growth, creating better looking faces
  • Improves overall general health, and posture of the growing child

    Happy Patients

    My experience in the O Connor dental health was pleasent.As a person who is nervous about visiting the dentist i felt very relaxed both in the waiting room and on the chair.Over the years i have attended a few different dentists and this has been the one practice where i felt relaxed and at ease due to the care of the staff. Before my procedures it was explained to me by the staff what to expect and i found this helped put me at ease. For any one who is nervous of visiting the dentists i would strongly recommend this practice.



    My daughter needed orthodontic treatment. Tony did a very comprehensive plan for my daughter and went through it with me and my daughter in great detail before he began the treatment. We knew how long it was going to take and what exactly was involved. What I liked about Tony was, he was so enthusiastic himself about the treatment and took great pride in getting it right, tweaking a bit here and there to make sure he got the best result. He explained everything to my daughter and encouraged her through the treatment. Tony does not just look at the teeth but also the shape of her mouth and the overall look. I would highly recommend Tony and his team, he is a genuine, passionate and meticulous about his work and a very nice person as well. My daughter has a lovely smile and my younger daughter can't wait to start her treatment as she sees the fantastic results of Tony's work and can't wait to have the same fantastic smile.
