You should not get daunted, distressed nor down if you know you are going to have to have braces fitted to your teeth in Bristol, whatever age you are. For braces can do things for you that will bring you out of your shell and make you shake with a confidence you had lost when your teeth started to do their own agenda. And this is the greatest time to have a look around at what’s on offer. All of our teeth have a mind of their own it seems at times and go off and do their own thing. But for every action there is an opposite reaction and to every problem there is a solution and thank the Lord for technology and how things progress year upon year; there are so many ways to get your teeth straightened these days and a device that is catered for you and your needs. If you are young and have to go down the route of getting your teeth into shape, fixed metal braces can be a little psychologically damaging if you have to wear them over a sustained period of time. But if you have money to blow, and if the treatment is viable for your mouth, you should look at one of the new-ish American aligners because you can barely tell that they are in the mouth at all, removable and will work a lot faster than traditional braces. Of course if you are a ‘bit’ older, then you wont want to be embarking on a course of lengthy tooth alignment- and if you fit the treatment, you wont have to because there are some braces out there that will whip your mouth into shape in as little as 6 weeks! Ask your dentist and shop around before you plump for the first thing that comes along, but most importantly, get something that you are happy with during this troubled period.
