How to Care for Your Braces

Monday, October 26th, 2015

braces front teethWe would all love to have them. They do the power of good for the look of our teeth. Of course, the topic of discussion is braces.

Modern day braces are remarkably good. They literally straighten out any problems our wonky teeth might have had for quite some time. But, braces of any kind can be distressing to many people. They might not be aesthetically pleasing to all and the person might be self-conscious about how their mouth looks. No matter what your opinion is on braces, one of the most important aspects is looking after them so that they can fully help your teeth. This can be done in many ways.

Just like your mouth, cleaning a brace regularly throughout the day is very important. As the brace is positioned in your mouth for long periods of the day, the probability of bacteria building up in your mouth is very high. In order to stop the harmful spread of bacteria from entering your mouth, it is advised that you brush your brace with some toothpaste and a toothbrush every day just as you do with your teeth.

Soaking your brace is also a very good idea if you have removable braces. By doing this, you will be able to clean your brace further, which conventional cleaning might not quite manage. Asking your dentist about the right solution for your brace will help as they will have a wealth of knowledge that the internet might otherwise miss.

How to Achieve Stunning Results with Braces

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

braces front teethHaving crooked or misaligned teeth can be damaging to your confidence and stop you from showing off your smile.  Your teeth might have been misaligned or crooked from birth or due to thumb-sucking or an accident.  These problems are easily solved by using braces that work with your teeth to correct misalignments with your bite and give you the perfect smile.

Can adults wear braces?

A common misconception is that braces must be fitted during childhood.  It is the optimum time for braces as children’s teeth are still developing and can be shaped easily, but braces are  suitable for adults too.  The length of treatment time with braces varies.  You might only need to wear them for six weeks but some people require them for as long as three years.  This is because braces can solve different problems such as widening your palate or jaw or giving you more space between your teeth.

Wearing braces

Your dentist will take moulds and x-rays of your teeth in order for the brace to fit perfectly with your mouth and correct whatever problems you have.  Brackets are attached to the teeth using an etchant for adhesive strength.  A wire is threaded through the brackets and this is used to adjust the position of your teeth at regular dental appointments.  Retainers are worn after the treatment is complete to make sure that your teeth and jaw don’t relapse into their former problematic positions.

Here’s a brief guide to the many benefits of Six Month Smiles:


As you’ve probably deduced from the name of the treatment, Six Month Smiles takes just six months to straighten the teeth and create beautiful smiles. Many treatments take at least 12 months, so this is a really quick option and a great choice for those who want results fast or planning for special events such as the perfect wedding day.

Discreet aesthetics

Six Month Smiles are fixed braces, but this doesn’t mean that you have to show off an unsightly, cumbersome metal brace every time you smile. These braces are fine and delicate and they are made from tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets. Once your braces have been fitted, they will barely be noticeable when you smile and this should give you greater confidence during the treatment period.


Six Month Smiles uses advanced self-ligating technology that helps to reduce friction and gentle forces to move the teeth quickly and comfortably. Like all braces, it can take a couple of days to get used to Six Month Smiles, but you should find them very comfortable once you have become acclimatised.

Beautiful results

Six Month Smiles is specifically designed to correct issues that affect the front teeth and this means that you are guaranteed a stunning smile once your braces are taken off.

Choosing your Braces in Leeds

Friday, January 20th, 2012

When it comes to braces/aligners and which one to choose inLeeds, it comes down to two basic principles- finance and eligibility; you can also throw a hint of vanity into the equation as well. If you can set up a payment plan before you set sail on the torrid sea, then you will have no problems at all with choice. If you are young, wearing braces can put you through an emotional time during the most important years of your life. Traditional metal braces can look ungainly, but they are super efficient and if you can bear the ridicule for a couple of years you will be a beautiful swan at the end of it all and they are the cheapest option. But if you do not want to put yourself through the ‘ribbing’, there are some fantastic clear aligners on the market that are fast, ‘invisible’ and are removable so that you can clean your teeth properly and eat your dinner. If you have only a few teeth that are messing up your smile, then you can opt for some of the slicker treatments around. The 6 Months Smile does exactly that, makes you smile in 6 months, whereas, the Inman aligner will make you smile in just 6 weeks! All of these magical devices are designed to do specific jobs and you may find yourself pulling your hair out with choice. But the best thing you can do is seek advice from your dentist and find out what your teeth are doing, if a certain device is suitable for you and then jump in at the deep end without fear. What is a short period of time in your life of tooth aligning compared to a life’s worth of endless smiling?
