Getting braces later in life may be an intimidating experience for many patients. Adults are less likely to enjoy the idea of wearing unattractive metal brackets and wires, but fortunately, dental technology has evolved. Nowadays, adult patients can take advantage of discreet but effective teeth straightening treatments with braces.
Adult braces in North London are specifically designed for older patients who value appearance and convenience. They are available in a few selected dental practices, including Denchic Dental Spa. Adult braces such as Invisalign, Six Month Smiles and the Inman Aligner are very discreet and comfortable and have proven effective over the years.
Invisalign is one of the most popular treatments for treating crooked and misaligned teeth. It is not just a clever name – these aligners are transparent, so there is no embarrassment wearing them. The customised, removable Invisalign aligners are comfortably fitted to each patient’s teeth and replaced every 7-10 days to move their teeth to their correct positions. Moreover, Invisalign braces in North London require fewer adjustments than regular braces and can be taken out for eating and drinking.
Six Month Smiles
Another popular discreet teeth straightening option for adults, Six Month Smiles fixed braces consist of clear or tooth-coloured brackets and wires. These braces can move only the crown of the tooth and not the root and for this reason, they work in six months or less. Six Month Smiles braces in North London are ideal for patients who wish to straighten their front teeth quickly and effectively in preparation for a special event such as a wedding or a graduation ceremony.
The Inman Aligner is a teeth straightening device that consists of two nickel-titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows. These bows gently put pressure against each other, moving the teeth in their correct position. These gentle forces are active over a wide variety of movements and that is the reason why the Inman Aligner works within a few weeks. The Inman Aligner is removable and can be taken out for eating and brushing. However, patients must wear it for as many hours as possible throughout the day for consistent results.
