Yes, it’s the news you’ve been dreading for ages, you are going to have to get your teeth straightened. It can be quite harrowing having to wear braces, especially if you have to be a school while it’s happening, for not only do you have to put up with the playground ridicule, if the treatment is complex, you may be wearing them for around three years. But before you run off and hit the panic button, you may well like to take a look of the range of options that are around in Leeds to get your teeth sorted out. Choice will always come down to what your dentist thinks is the best option and what treatment you need and what you can afford, but here goes. Firstly, braces are either fixed for the duration or the can be removed at certain times during the day so that may affect your choice from the start. Fixed braces have come a long way from the bad old days using modern materials to sit discreetly in the mouth and the good thing about them from the health of your mouths point of view, they move the teeth slowly and precisely allowing the teeth to grow naturally as they move- but they do pose a problem when it comes to oral hygiene as they are hard to clean-persevere and you’ll master it. This is not a problem for the removable aligner however and if you happen to be able and lucky enough to opt for one of the ‘invisible’ aligners on the market, you’ll definitely be free from ridicule anywhere you go. Your dentist will be able to show you the choices at your disposal.
