Braces are almost a rite of passage for people in the 21st century. Very few are born with perfectly straight teeth, and so, if they don’t get them fixed as a teenager, chances are, with the advent of cosmetic braces in North London, they’ll get them fixed as an adult with teeth straightening treatment. Having straighter teeth is much healthier for several reasons, and it looks much better too.
Braces in North London are available for adults as well as teenagers from reputable dentists such as Denchic Dental Spa. There are braces that are designed to correct a misaligned bite, and these are the heavy-duty train track braces that people associate with teenage rites of passage. Braces for adults are usually focused more on cosmetic changes, moving only the teeth and not the jaws. Jaw realignment has to be done early on before the bone hardens and cannot be changed.
Aligning the teeth is a simpler process requiring a lot less force, which means that the braces in North London for adults can be smaller, more discreet and sometimes almost invisible.
Six Month Smiles
A bracket and wire braces system that uses small clear ceramic brackets strung together with tooth-coloured wires, which do not dominate the mouth, but blend in with the teeth. As Six Month Smiles work only on the front 6 social teeth, making minor realignments, their work is done in an average of only 6 months.
This is a device that works on aligning the front 2 teeth only, and can reposition almost any misalignment, from twisted to protruding teeth. It holds the teeth between 2 spring-loaded aligner bows and treatment usually takes 6–18 weeks. The device doubles as a retainer, making this device cost-effective.
Mouth guard-like, 0.3 millimetre thick aligners that push rather than pull the teeth into position. Invisalign aligners are almost invisible once they are snapped on over the teeth, making them very popular with people who don’t want anyone to know they are getting their teeth straightened. They are also removable for eating and cleaning, but must be worn for at least 20 hours a day, so discipline is required.
