Choosing the right braces comes down to number of factors from age, who you are and where you are. If you are young and still at school, it can be a tempestuous time and so you want to get through it pretty much unscathed and your choice of braces is of the utmost importance. Most now sit discreetly in the mouth, unlike the ‘railway connections at Leeds train station’ looking braces that were once the only option; the ‘Damon’ and ‘the 6 months smile’, colour code their fittings to match your teeth. But for total discretion, feast your eyes on ‘Clear smile’ or ‘Invisalign’, for these are completely transparent- and removable too! These braces also work for adults, though at this stage of life, lengthy treatments may not fit into your equation, although the clear aligners probably would because the offer total discretion- great for work and great at home, and if your have an incredibly important 2 hours to get through, then simply take them out!
But if it’s speed you want, the ‘6 months smile’ will suit you down to the ground, because it takes…..6 months. However, if you want a rocket ship of an aligner, and if you’re suited to wearing it, just check out the Inman aligner; it’s removable during the treatment, relatively cheap, painless and…..sit down for a moment….it works in as little as 6 weeks!!! If you are unsure what you want, take a list of things that you want in a brace to your dentist, and they will tell you what one to go for.
