Are adult braces in North London effective?

19th March 2019

If you are an adult with crooked teeth, you may be thinking about braces. However, most adults are not keen on spending a year or more in metal brackets and wires. Fortunately, discreet braces are becoming more mainstream and they are now available in many dental practices across the UK.

At Denchic, our offering of discreet braces in North London is for patients who wish to improve the alignment of their teeth without sacrificing their appearance. While the choice is ultimately your, we strongly advise you to book a consultation appointment so that our dentists can examine your teeth thoroughly.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign was introduced in cosmetic dentistry quite a while ago, but it received mainstream recognition only recently (partly due to its endorsement by celebrities). This treatment is one of the easiest and most innovative ways to straighten your teeth without using metal. Invisalign is made of a series of clear aligners made of a special thermoplastic material that is very durable and can sustain tooth movement. These aligners will slowly reposition your teeth over a specific period of time (which is different for each patient).

With Invisalign, your dentist will take accurate impressions of your teeth using digital technology. Once you receive your aligners, you will need to change them every 7-10 days according to your dentist’s instructions. Invisalign aligners are very sensitive to dental movements and should be changed according to the plan your dentist has created for you.

What is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles is a non-customised teeth-straightening system that consists of tooth-coloured brackets and metal wires. Six Month Smiles can move the front upper and lower teeth within a limited amount of time, but is not ideal for complex dental problems including jaw or bite problems. The combination of low-movement forces and short overall treatment time increases the benefits of this system.

As with Invisalign, once your treatment is over, your dentist may suggest wearing removable retainers for a specific period of time.
