If you are one amongst the many thousand’s of central Londoners that has to have their teeth aligned for the future protection of the mouth, it can be a very stressful time. But if you were to take a look at what the market has to offer, you will be pleasantly surprised at what’s around theses days. It wasn’t so long ago that the options were very limited, but now, there are some cracking techniques to straighten your teeth. Braces and aligners fall into two categories- fixed and removable. Fixed braces are the most common as they are generally a cheaper option, but they do take a lot of extra vigilance when cleaning and tend to be in the mouth a lot longer than others options. However, designs such as the Damon and 6-months smile are very sympathetic to these problems and a whole hygiene program has built up around them- and they also sit very discreetly in the mouth. But for sheer audacity when it comes to having teeth alignment, removable aligners win hands down. Invisalign and Clearstep from the USA have won the hearts of the millions that have worn them. Not only do they work a lot faster than most fixed braces and are more hygienic because they can be taken out, these aligners are transparent- almost invisible in fact when fitted. They are more expensive, but the pros outweigh the cons with these treatments. And if you are really in a hurry, the removable Inman aligner can straighten out your front teeth in as little as 6 weeks….now that’s some going!
