One of the greatest things that has come out of the dental revolution that has swept across Central Leeds over the past 30 years, is choice. In the past, we put a hell of a lot of trust into our dentists, and for a lot of people who had limited financial resources, the choices behind the treatments were limited to what the NHS could offer. But dental treatments have gone through a complete make-over, thanks largely to dental procedures that have filtered through to Britain from the USA, and the advancements in technology; with it has come a shift in the dentist/patient relationships too. With so many options available to patients these days and the fact that most dentists offer as much as they can to keep up with trends, prices of treatments have fallen dramatically, and this has given back to the patient the luxury to choose where and when they get the treatments they require. Any dentist can offer the basic treatments to keep your teeth and gums healthy, but the demands of society to look our best at all times has seen this surge in cosmetics. Television and magazines have also caused an incredible demand for the latest treatments available in cosmetic dentistry and most dental surgeries offer the ‘in’ procedures to smarten up your teeth. But though all these treatments are cheap, accessible and just around the corner, your dentist, that has nurtured you through those years of growing up, knows your teeth as well as you do, so before you jump in for the latest treatments, a consultation should point you in the best direction for the best treatments around.
