The London Borough of Haringey is a London borough, north London, classified by some definitions as part of Inner London, and by others as part of Outer London. It was created in 1965 by the amalgamation of three former boroughs. It shares borders with six other London boroughs. Clockwise from the north, they are: Enfield, Waltham Forest, Hackney, Islington, Camden, and Barnet. Haringey covers an area of more than.
Some of the more familiar local landmarks include Alexandra Palace, Bruce Castle, Jacksons Lane, Highpoint I and II, and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. The borough has extreme contrasts: areas in the west, such as Highgate, Muswell Hill and Crouch End are among the most prosperous in the country; in the east of the borough, some wards are classified as being among the most deprived 10% in the country.
Haringey is also a borough of contrasts geographically. From the wooded high ground around Highgate and Muswell Hill, at , the land falls sharply away to the flat, open low lying land beside the River Lea in the east. The borough includes large areas of green space, which make up more than 25% of its total area.
The local authority is Haringey London Borough Council. In recent years, Haringey Council has become the subject of nationwide criticism over its handling of the welfare of young children in connection with the murder of Victoria Climbié and the death of Baby P. In March 2009, Haringey Council's performance was placed by the Audit Commission in the bottom four of the country and the worst in London. In December 2009, Haringey's performance was placed by Ofsted in the bottom nine in the country for children's services. The Council's Children's Services has significantly improved over the last two years. A series of positive Ofsted inspections culminated in the service being taken out of 'special measures' by the government in February 2013.
At Forest & Ray, our orthodontist will check on how crowded your teeth are, and if there is enough room for them to move and give your set of teeth a better alignment. Teeth extractions are recommended when there is not enough space to straighten the alignment of your teeth.
At Forest & Ray, the goal of dentistry examines how well the jaws overlap. Proper tooth alignment leads to a cleaner, healthier, happier smile. A jaw that closes properly would endure less wear and tear while chewing and eating, contributing to a beautiful appearance, and supporting with speech for as long as possible.
Besides correcting teeth that are crooked, gapped, or crowded, clear aligners also correct abnormal bite functions when the upper and lower jaws fail to come together properly. But more importantly for adults, they are transparent trays almost noticeable. We have payment plans at Forest and Ray if you need invisible aligners.
A wisdom tooth is impacted when it is blocked from coming out or when the gums do not fully erupt, preventing the tooth from coming out. At Forest and Ray, not far from Haringey we might recommend the extraction of the impacted tooth to prevent it from damaging other teeth.
