Many adults are choosing to straighten their teeth because of the importance of maintaining their oral health. However, most adults do not feel comfortable with the idea of having to wear metal braces for months or even years.

Fortunately, modern braces come in a variety of styles, materials, and colours, making life with braces much easier, more comfortable, and even more stylish than in the past. Adult braces in Camden are either fixed or removable and are available at many dental practices in Kentish Town, including Ace Dental.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces, although made from metal, are hidden behind the teeth, offering an almost undetectable way to straighten teeth. Just like metal braces, lingual braces in Camden use a wire and bracket system to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. They are suitable for all ages and all types of misalignment.

Invisalign

An innovative teeth straightening treatment, Invisalign, consists of a series of transparent, removable, plastic aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth. Invisalign uses advanced 3D technology, allowing patients to have a look at their virtual results and treatment plan before they even start their treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, therefore patients are flexible to eat and drink whatever they want during treatment.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a rapid cosmetic braces treatment designed to straighten the front teeth in nearly half the time of normal braces. Six Month Smiles braces are similar to traditional braces, but made with clear brackets and wires that are comfortable and highly effective. They are ideal for patients who wish to improve their smile in preparation for a special event.

Inman aligner

Inman aligners offer a quick and discreet alternative to traditional braces, but they are restricted to the level of movement they can achieve. These removable devices push and pull the teeth into position with the help of a coiled spring mechanism that sits on the inside of the teeth. Treatment time is usually shorter than with most invisible braces, varying from 6-16 weeks.
