Angle orthodontics is a very precise study into the art of tooth straightening, the name ‘angle’ coming from one of the fathers of orthodontics- Edward Angle. It is often considered that there are in general five or six different shapes to the teeth in the mouth. However, there are odd cases that crop up from time to time so some braces need to be made specifically to suit certain mouths, especially if the work required is very complex; having these 5-6 common variations though allow manufacturers to come up with a set range of templates to make the braces/aligners with, so it saves on time and gets your treatment on the go quickly. It is because of this intense study and understanding of orthodontics (that has come a very long way over the past 60 years), that means that you get the best device for the job at hand. Such precision allows your teeth to move into a position that will protect your ‘bite’ and also take stress away from your jaw-joints. Yes, it may well be uncomfortable at times throughout the procedure, but afterwards your teeth will be in a position to give you ample service throughout your life in the city of Leeds.
