Orthodontic treatment is an art form: it deals delicately with the problems of teeth in relation to the bite of the mouth. If teeth are growing badly, causing cross, over and under biting, this will affect the bite and in the long run, put the joints of the jaw under extra stress. So, at this juncture, the teeth need to be re-aligned and the way to do this is with the use of a brace. Now for some complex scenarios, the treatment is going to be at least two years in the making. But the industry has also recognised that not everyone needs to be fitted with these types of braces anymore, not all treatments need to be so long and the correction can be a lot quicker. Hence, we move swiftly into the world of speedy orthodontics in the city of Leeds and people love the idea of getting through this period of life as quickly as possible. Treatment times for some braces and aligners have tumbled dramatically. On average now the treatment times take between 6 months to a year to complete- and discreetly too, as the devices have become more user-friendly. To epitomise how orthodontic treatments have got faster, the Inman aligner is the flagship of aligners- it can straighten front teeth up in as little as 6 weeks! Now that is speedy!!

Orthodontics- the noble art of teeth straightening: it is growing in stature and getting better with each passing year. The basic elements of this trade involves the protection of your jaw-joints by keeping the mouth’s occlusion or ‘bite’ true and by the use of braces or aligners, this can be achieved. For really difficult treatments, it may involve the removal of certain teeth first so that the ones that are left can be moved into the spaces. In cases like this, the treatment can be lengthy, but it will be extremely precise and you benefit greatly by having it done. Not every mouth is the same though and if you look around, you’ll be amazed at how many devices are out there to do different jobs. One of the greatest changes in orthodontics has come in how fast some braces and aligners work- on average, treatments are starting to dip under the year mark. But finally, it is style in which these devices are straightening people’s teeth and it’s this that’s winning people over and taking the stigma out of wearing a brace or aligner in the city of Leeds: the materials used in the manufacture of these devices are so discreet that when they are fitted, it is difficult to tell when people are wearing them.
The world of dentistry has many different areas of speciality, all of them designed to ensure that you, as a patient, get the best from your treatment: orthodontics is one of these branches. Most people in central Leeds will struggle with crooked teeth at some point and if the problem isn’t rectified, there is a chance that your jaw joints could suffer from a bad occlusion or ‘bite’ in the future. This is the job of an orthodontist. As your teeth develop in the early years, your dentist will monitor your teeth for growth, and it’s a tricky time because there are a lot of things happening all at once- especially when your second teeth come through. If any abnormalities arise at this stage, it will determine how your teeth grow in the future and for most of us, we will need a little tooth alignment. The fitting of braces is a tempestuous time for any child (and some adults too), but your orthodontist is there to cover all bases for you. There is a brace or aligner for all occasions; some are more technical than others but then the type you get depends on the intricacy of the work that needs doing. However, the work done at this stage by the orthodontist will ensure that you teeth and your occlusion will get you through life.
You know, when it comes to wearing braces in the city of Leeds, you no longer have to settle for second best any more, unlike people who have had to go through this procedure in the past with vast quantities of pipe work wrapped around the teeth. In 2012, you have the luxury of choice and seeing as you are going to pay for it, you may as well get something that suits you. It is a golden era right now for braces and aligners, so you would be well advised to shop around before choosing. Most of the gadgets tend to err on the side of discretion these days so that you don’t have to suffer the problem of ridicule from people around you. Most fixed braces for example, now incorporate materials that blend in with the natural look of your mouth when you smile, but for the ultimate in discretion, there are a couple of clear aligners on the market that you can barely notice at all once they have been fitted, as they are made from a completely clear plastic. Some aligners can be removed, a bonus when it comes to cleaning your teeth, but generally, in all cases, whatever model you choose, modern braces and aligners are designed to work faster than they ever did in order to do away with horrible lengthy treatments- one can even work in as little 6 weeks. So before you jump in, talk to your dentist about your options and get the best you can to straighten your teeth.
Having unsightly shaped teeth is never a good scenario for a number of reasons, but if you were to truly admit to it, the main problem is that your teeth can hold you back and severely restrain your self-confidence.
The idea of having lengthy, drawn out treatments to cure you of the problem can also be just as unattractive as well. That was of course, until the Inman aligner descended on the city of Leeds; this is the slickest of treatments. It has a unique mechanism that keep the teeth in a constant state of movement which means, as they are rocked back and forth all the time, they move radically fast and in the blink of an eye, your teeth will be straightened….this can be as quick as 6 weeks.
It is unobtrusive in the mouth as it is manufactured from discreet materials and it can also be removed at any time if so desired, like when you eat and when you clean your teeth which allow you to maintain a high standard of oral hygiene throughout. The costs vary, but it is bespoke to you, and besides, seriously, 6 weeks to rid you of those teeth for once and for all?
If they close perfectly, then there is less stress placed upon the tiny joints of the jaws where they meet. But teeth don’t follow the rule book and for some people in central Leeds, teeth can develop awkwardly and grow crooked which means they have to be straightened by the use of a brace or aligner. Now this can throw up a lot of fears in some people.
Traditionally, braces have not been renowned for their beauty and wearing them can be an ordeal- that was until Invisalign came along. It comes in the guise of a gum-shield, but throws off the shackles of stigma that comes with traditional braces. It is made from a clear plastic, which from a vanity angle is marvellous because it is almost invisible when fitted and as the treatment progresses and you get fitted with different ones as your teeth move, you will find that your teeth move quickly, up to three times faster than other braces.
It can also be removed whenever it takes your fancy so from a hygiene point of view, this is another plus. It is more expensive than other treatments but the rewards of this treatment and the way it works far outweighs any costs incurred. Anyway, you need the treatment so why not make it a pleasurable one.

No Need to Feel Self-Conscious about Your Smile Anymore with Invisible Braces from Central Leeds DentistThursday, July 26th, 2012
Whether child, teenager or adult, having to wear braces can be an embarrassing experience. Invisible braces can now give you the dental benefits of braces while hiding the fact you wear braces. Permanently fixed braces are not now the necessarily best option for everyone. Your Central Leeds dental practice can offer a range of braces that will fit your unique needs, ask them if invisible braces may be right for you.
New types of invisible braces are made of clear plastic that is moulded to your exact specifications, meaning they blend right in with your natural appearance. They are normally removable and so can be removed when eating or for important social events. It is very important though that you wear them on average 22 hours a day in order to have the desired effect. As with all braces it is necessary to wear invisible braces for a minimum of several months and up to a year or two. The length of time it takes to have a permanent effect is largely dependent on the original position of the teeth and how much adjustment they need.
The fitting of invisible braces does not take too long but may take a few visits to your dentist. They will first consult with you on exactly what type of braces would be right for you. They will then need to take moulds, x-rays and photographs in order for the braces to be made to the exact shape and size of your teeth. The dentist will the fit them and likely ask you to return in a month or two to check whether they need any adjustments.
Teeth straightening has always been a touchy subject for the people in the city of Leeds and all over the country, for history has shown that it doesn’t exactly evoke dental romanticism. Lengthy treatments a mouthful of metal and the ridicule to boot….for some, awful times. However, those with dodgy front teeth- run through the fields and scream freedom because an aligner has muscled its way into our hearts and taken us to dinner on a white horse- yes, the Inman aligner has landed and can save your day, this brash, heaven-sent device will blow your socks off. It works on the theory of keeping the teeth on the move, meaning fast results and it does it by rocking the teeth back and forth until they rest in the desired position; the aligner pushes and pulls. It’s design means it only concentrates on the front teeth, but it also has the luxury of being removable throughout the treatment and that can only be good for your oral health. But you better be sitting down for this next bit, for this brash little beast can work as quickly as 6 weeks….you okay? As has been mentioned, it’s not for everyone, but if it is for you, your teeth can be sorted out in a couple of months and finally, you can get closure on how your teeth have looked and annoyed you for years- book in today!
There is a pretty good chance that most of us in Leeds are going to have to go through the pain and heartache of having a brace fitted at some point in our lives, and that is two years of psychologically being the ugly duckling with the playground ridicule that comes with it, not to mention how uncomfortable it is to wear. It is then very fortunate that future generations will not have to go through this torment as the world of dentistry has got its act together and started to knock-out aligners that leave the wearer feeling like a swan and that are ‘invisible’ when fitted into the mouth. The materials used in aligner manufacturing are more sympathetic on the eye and more aware of their surroundings- they match the colour of the teeth, from the plates to the wires and when wearing a fixed brace, that is heaven sent. But that is nothing compared some of the clear aligners from America; they truly are ‘invisible’, being made from a clear plastic, but they can also be taken out at any time AND they work far quicker than most other options around. Other braces and aligners can work from 6 weeks to 6 months so here, their invisibility work with speed- they are done and gone before you know it, and anyone else realises it. Ask your dentist about all these fantastic devices and your suitability before opting for second best.
