Orthodontics London

If you’ve got great teeth, just in the wrong place, then orthodontics could give you a straight new smile!


Most of us strive for a beautiful and healthy smile that looks and feels great – a smile you can be proud to show off. Not everyone has naturally straight teeth, but our London orthodontists offer a range of teeth-straightening treatment options that can help.

When it comes to straightening teeth, we offer some of the best orthodontics London has to offer here at Finsbury Dental Care. Our specialist orthodontists produce a personalised treatment plan for each patient to ensure excellent final results.

There is a common misconception that orthodontics is just for children and teens, but this is simply not the case. Orthodontic treatment can move teeth no matter your age, and as it has grown in popularity, we are seeing more adult patients for orthodontics in London than ever before! Age should never be a barrier to achieving straighter teeth and a pain-free functional bite.

It is one of our most popular orthodontic treatments and can help with a range of issues, including:

Crowded teeth

Gapped teeth

Open bite




Crooked teeth

Specialist orthodontist in London

We offer most major braces systems for all ages, including Invisalign clear aligners, WIN lingual braces, and Incognito hidden braces – making sure there are brace options for every type of patient. Invisalign in particular has become one of the most popular tooth-correcting treatments for both teenagers and adults thanks to its speed, ease of use, and discreet nature.

Whether you have overcrowded teeth, a deep bite, or reverse bite, our experienced team can treat a range of mild to complex cases. Why not book an orthodontic appointment with the best London orthodontists at Finsbury Dental Care today?

Lingual braces in London

Lingual braces in London are ideal for those who can’t use Invisalign treatment, but don’t want to have visible brackets and wires on the front of their teeth. With the WIN and Incognito lingual orthodontic systems, the brackets are bonded to the backs of the teeth instead, so the metal braces and attached archwires are not visible from the front, whether they’re on the upper teeth or lower teeth.

This discreet option helps people to straighten their teeth and correct their bite with hardly anyone noticing, as the braces are almost completely concealed, maintaining their facial appearance and ability to eat and speak so they don’t have to feel self-conscious.

Ceramic braces in London

As lingual braces can cost more, some patients may prefer less conspicuous traditional braces – such as ceramic braces in London. These still attach to the front of the teeth, but the brackets are clear or made from tooth-coloured ceramic, so they blend in with the teeth and are less immediately noticeable compared to the metal brackets traditionally used for fixed braces.

When you visit our dentist in London, we will be able to assess your specific needs during your initial consultation, where we can then discuss the best options for you at length. So, come on in for an orthodontic consultation to see which braces might suit you best!

Warm, welcoming and experienced orthodontists in London

Here at Finsbury Dental Care, we appreciate how daunting orthodontic treatment can be for both children and adults. That’s why we invite all of our patients to contact us for a brief discussion first. We can talk through your particular concerns and invite you to speak with one of our specialist orthodontists in London, arranging an appointment at our orthodontic clinic at a time that suits you.

On arrival, our team will make you feel welcome and ask you to fill out a short questionnaire before introducing you to your dental team. We will need to assess your oral health as well as the condition of your teeth first – if you’re experiencing gum disease or tooth decay, a dentist must treat this to make sure you have a healthy smile before you can undergo any orthodontic treatment.

A specialist orthodontist will assess your malocclusion and explain the potential orthodontic treatments to straighten your teeth. During this time, you can ask any questions you might have for more information and tailored advice on your treatment options.

Following the initial dental and oral examination, we can start putting together a treatment plan to straighten your teeth, improving their appearance and your bite. We can also discuss how much different braces cost and payment options.

Our professional team will always go above and beyond to ensure you are in control of your orthodontic treatment, making sure you feel confident and comfortable every time you visit us for orthodontic appointments at every stage of your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What age is best for braces?

As we’ve said, braces aren’t restricted to any certain age group, and they can have fantastic results for both teens and adults. Ideally, braces will be fitted around 12 or 13 years of age. This is because a child’s mouth and jaw at this age is still growing, so it is easier to get results.

However, this doesn’t mean that braces won’t work for you if you’ve waited until you’re older – it just typically means that your treatment may take longer.

How many sessions do I need for braces?

If you’ve chosen your orthodontist in London and have made the decision to get braces – you may be wondering how long your treatment will last, and how often you need to visit the dentist’s chair.

Generally speaking, your first dental appointment will be the longest and this is when your braces will be fitted. From here you usually come back every 4-10 weeks for your braces to be tightened, although the exact time between appointments will differ depending on your specific case.

The total amount of sessions you will need is very personal to you and depends on how much correction is required. Usually, braces take between 16-18 months to change your smile, and during this time you will be seeing your dentist on average once every 6 weeks.

If you opt for Invisalign – the amounts of sessions you need is dramatically reduced as you are provided with all the aligners you need so you can continue your treatment at home.

Is it easy to maintain good oral health when undergoing orthodontic treatments?

Dental hygiene is of paramount importance, and this is just as crucial when undergoing orthodontic care. Of course, the type of treatment you’re having will determine how easy it is to keep up a good oral care regime, but at our orthodontists in London, we always provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to maintain a clean and healthy mouth during treatment.

Invisalign for example is extremely easy to clean, and looking after your mouth is just as simple thanks to the fact you can easily remove the aligners when brushing and flossing.

We will give you thorough instructions on how to ensure your smile remains healthy and clean during your specific treatment when you visit us.

What are the dos and don’ts after having braces?

Once you’ve committed to months of orthodontic treatment, you want to know that your new smile will continue to look the part, so there are a few pointers you should follow once your braces are off.

Dos include:

  • Continue to maintain a good dental hygiene routine, regularly brushing and flossing
  • Continue to see your dentist regularly for check-ups
  • Wear your retainer every night (if applicable) to maintain the new position of your teeth

Don’ts include:

  • Biting hard objects which could damage your teeth or the structure of your bite
  • Neglect routine appointments

Your dentist will be able to advise you thoroughly during your appointment to have your braces removed on the best ways to maintain your new smile.

Will I need to have teeth removed to get braces?

In some cases, we may need to extract one or more teeth in order to make sure there’s enough to remove for your teeth to move into the desired position. However, it is important to note that this is only the case where severe overcrowding is present, we only remove teeth if absolutely necessary, and will try to avoid this wherever possible.

How long does it take for braces to work?

There is no universal time frame for braces, as the time treatment takes will really depend on how much movement is required. Typically, though, it can take up to 18 months for your teeth to reach their final position, but some systems work quicker than others. Your dentist will be able to discuss the best options available to you during your consultation.
