Teeth straightening can be quite scary when you first embark on it in Surrey, especially if you require complex and tricky work; you could be in for a 3 year ride, but you have to do this for two major reasons. The first is obviously vanity and crooked teeth can appear quite ugly, but behind all of this is a health issue too; orthodontics is done to ensure that your bite is true so that you don’t put excess pressure on your jaw-joints. There are a lot more options you can choose today than say 30 years ago and if you do your homework and look around, you may find yourself even enamoured by what’s on offer. Fixed braces offer the best precision and they aren’t ugly either like in the past, utilising modern and discreet materials in order to get the job done. They are also the cheaper end of the spectrum, but some of these modern devices can work in just 6 months, so they are good value for money. Then you delve into the world of aligners. These cost more but they work in fabulously mysterious ways: they are removable for starters and some are made from clear plastic meaning that they are impossible to spot when they’re in, but if you have a certain problem with your front teeth only; one aligner can actually straighten your teeth in just 6 weeks! Sit down and weigh up your options with your dentist and find out what device is best for the condition of your teeth.
