If we were being completely honest, in an ideal world no one would want to have braces and would always choose to have perfectly straight teeth. Unfortunately, we can’t all be that lucky and for many people the only option to straighten crooked or uneven teeth is to have orthodontic treatment.
Braces have existed in one form or another for many years ranging from the archaic, almost torture-like braces of the early twentieth century up to the discreet and slick braces of today. But because many people still identify braces with the now old-fashioned metal ‘train track’ style they can still find them a rather unpleasant proposition.
Dentists in Leeds now offer a range of completely modern braces that all address the rather unpleasant aspects of the old style fixed brace. One of the most common complaints against braces has always been the length of treatment but with new treatments like Six Month Smile and the Inman aligner, treatment can now last less than half as long as previously possible. Braces such as Invisalign are almost totally invisible being made of extremely thin clear plastic. And Damon braces, although fixed, use brackets that are made of plastic and ceramic so as to be virtually invisible. The Damon brace is also incredibly comfortable on the teeth and requires no painful tightening sessions with the dentist.
For anyone who may need braces but still remains unsure, talk to your dentist about the array of new treatments available. You’re bound to be pleasantly surprised with the possibilities of modern dentistry.
