All they want for Christmas is some straightened teeth

An increasing number of adults are getting braces fitted in the run-up to Christmas.

That's according to prosthodontist Dr Farid Monibi, principal specialist at Central London dental practice 76 Harley Street, who says that he has seen an increase in adults booking brace fittings leading up to the festive season.

He says: ‘Husbands are buying their wives braces for Christmas and vice versa. We have even had one teenager arrange for her Mother to be fitted with them as a Christmas present. I think people are increasingly recognising the gift of the perfect smile. Our teeth our central to the way we feel about ourselves – they determine how much we smile and how others see us.

'Parents are seeing the benefits braces are bringing their children, and are asking themselves why they aren't doing it as well. A beautiful smile is good for everyone's self confidence, young or old.'

Despite the economic downturn, the industry is continuing to grow and Britons now spend around £350 million a year on treatments with many parents seeking treatment at the same time as their children.

The number of Britons who opted for braces was up by 345% to 1,164 in 2007, according to the latest research figures.

In November 2007, research from the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry BACD), revealed that a third (32%) of the population were ‘concerned by the look of their teeth' whilst only one in five (20%) would always smile in photographs.

Also:
• Approximately one fifth of people (18%) ‘usually conceal their teeth in photos', including 19% of men and nearly a quarter of both 18-24 and 25-34 year-olds
• Only one in four people agree with the statement ‘I like my smile and would not change it', and in fact, less claim to ‘always smile in photos'
• Over half of the representative sample now claims to visit their dentist regularly
• Nearly 60% of women visit the dentist regularly, above average and significantly more than men do - only 46% of males visit the dentist regularly
• Women are more inclined to believe a nice smile indicates a warm personality, whilst men consider it can lead to a more success in life
• Over a quarter (27%) continues to believes that cosmetic dentistry can improve quality of life.

Dr Monibi specialises in minimal intervention and reconstructive dentistry.
