Getting braces might seem like a big decision to make. Apart from the trips to the dentist there’s also the everyday care of your braces. Many adults are put off by the idea of having braces after their childhood has gone, and are afraid of any possible stigma that may go with having braces in adulthood. However, due to a great number of changes in technology and due to demand, a great variety of teeth-straightening methods and technologies are now available.
At our practice, Denchic in North London, braces are no longer a matter of wire frames. Advances in technology have meant that there are lots of options for straightening teeth. What this means for patients is that there are a whole range of braces available – some clear, some very discrete. So while the process may take upwards of 6 months to 2 years or more (depending on the scale of the problem) the results are worth the wait, and even better, there may be a solution available which is stigma-free!
