Orthodontics is a very precise arm of dentistry in the city of Leeds that deals primarily with straightening your teeth and in its own field there are many ways of going about this. If it looks like you are having problems and your teeth are causing you problems now, and are likely to do so in the future, you are going to need some correction in order to maintain the health of your mouth and its ‘bite’. The only way this can be determined is to have your teeth scanned and x-rayed first, for this will decide exactly what type of brace or aligner will be suitable for the job; this will also come down to what you can afford because some treatments are pricier than others. If the work is complex, then it may involve the removal of some teeth beforehand to make way for the movement. Once all of this has been worked out, then it is down to choosing your method of treatment. Fixed braces will cover intricate work but there are some around that will do the work in as little as 6 months, plus they are a cheaper option. Removable aligners are the darlings of the market right now; they are ‘hot’ on discretion and though they are more expensive, they too get the job done quickly- one can do the work in as little as 6 weeks! Do your homework so that you can get the best that you can buy.
