I have always been relatively happy with my teeth, but about a year ago whilst at the dentist during a routine check up, I happened to ask if there was anything I could do to straighten up my teeth. I didn’t really want to get my teeth capped as they were in good condition, so my dentist referred me to Cleveland Orthodontics.
On my initial consultation I was advised as to what could be done, regarding the treatment using a brace on my teeth and what this would cost. I was told that it could be a year to 18 months treatment and what appointments I would need to keep. I was advised to have a think about it and take it from there.
I had to get a couple of extractions and being a nervous dental patient I was a little concerned at that part. Looking back though, that was easy. The brace was nearly invisible and I have even had work colleagues tell me that they didn’t even realise I was wearing one.
Needless to say, here I am a year later with perfectly straight teeth. So now with my straight teeth and winning smile at 34 years of age! I am wondering why I didn’t get this treatment sooner. I didn’t even realise you could get orthodontic treatment at my age. I am really glad that I went ahead with the treatment, the brace had been removed at exactly one year and it wasn’t even that expensive. I have already had friends asking about how to go about getting a brace fitted!
