How to Choose the Right Brace for Your Needs

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

header_image4Many people thinking about having orthodontic treatment come to us wondering what kinds of braces are available and which systems would suit them best. At City Dental Leeds, we recognise that selecting a treatment can be confusing, especially if you aren’t familiar with the treatments available to you and this is why our expert dentists take the time to carry out a thorough consultation that gives them chance to explain the ins and outs and pros and cons of each option and answer as many questions as required.

Choosing the right brace

When you have your consultation, your dentist will carry out some tests and checks to ascertain your dental needs and get a clear idea of your individual orthodontic prescription. This will usually dictate which kinds of treatments are available to you. Often, treatments are geared towards people who have specific levels of need and what suits one patient may not be viable for another. Once your dentist has completed their analysis, they will go through the options with you and talk you through each one. They can also make recommendations based on what they think would be most beneficial for you.

In addition to your dental needs, your dentist can also take additional factors into account when discussing the options with you. For example, if you would like discreet brace or you have a certain date in mind and want a faster option, these preferences can be taken into consideration.

If you have any questions at all during the planning stage, our dentists are there to help. It is very common for patients to have concerns and questions before they begin treatment, so don’t ever feel like a question is silly or unnecessary. Our dental team will ensure that you have all the information you need to make the best decision.

Opting for the right Braces in Central Leeds

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

There was a time in central Leeds when being fitted with braces meant a mouth full of wire wool that was fixed in for anywhere up to 3 years. Fortunately, the choice of braces and aligners has become quite vast, more efficient and work a lot faster. Complex problems will always require complex solutions and in cases like these, you will need all that metalwork to move your teeth efficiently and safely. But fixed braces have changed; they use far more discreet materials, use ingenious mechanisms to get the job done and on average can get your teeth straightened anywhere from 6-18 months, which is a lot faster than those traditional braces. Of course, the real revolution has come with some of the removable aligners from the USA. These can be clear, so you can barely see them in the mouth at all as well as working fast. One actually boasts results in just 6 weeks! You have a lot more choice now so it is important to do your research and find one will suit all your requirements.
