Getting up an upgrade with braces in North London

Girl with bracesTeeth are quite a focus in today’s society. People really notice what other people’s teeth are like and can even take avoiding action if they don’t like what they see, on a first date, for example. If teeth don’t make the grade, there often won’t be a second date. Thankfully, getting braces in North London has never been easier and with so much choice.

More and more adults are considering getting braces in North London, but they also need to think about what kind of braces to wear at work, and how their colleagues will react, as well as how easy it will be to keep the braces clean and to eat food. It is a good idea to go to a dental clinic that offers a good range of braces in North London, such as Denchic Dental Spa.

There are some well known devices that are renowned for their success and popularity and these are a good place to start when looking for the right braces in North London. These devices are:

Six Month Smiles

A fixed brace with smaller brackets made of clear ceramic and wires that are finer and coated in a tooth-coloured material. They are designed to correct the alignment of the front 6-8 teeth, which are the ones that are most visible in day-to-day interactions. They are so-called because the average treatment time is 6 months, although it can be as little as 4 and as much as 9.

The Inman Aligner

This is a removable device designed to correct the position of the front teeth only. Two clear, spring-loaded bows sandwich the teeth behind and in front, and pressure them into alignment. Depending on the issue, treatment can take as little as 6 weeks. The devices comes out for eating and cleaning and doubles as a retainer, making this a very affordable option.


More clear aligners, but this time a series of them, shaped like mouth guards. They are worn in succession to straighten the teeth and are removed for eating and drinking. Because they are made of thin, clear plastic, they are very hard to spot. Average treatment is one year.
