Invisalign Glasgow: Buttercup 7 Day Dental reveals all!
By Hannah Kemp 04th Nov 2020
So, it’s like this: what happens in the Invisalign Glasgow club, stays in the Invisalign Glasgow club. But, at Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we don’t want any of our patients to feel left out, so we’re giving you a sneak peek into the elusive world of Invisalign. Invisalign Glasgow is a discreet method of realigning your teeth that doesn’t use fixed braces. With our flexible appointment times spanning across every day of the week, including late night appointments Monday to Thursday, we think you’ll love getting a beaming smile to be proud of with us.
There’s no denying that visible braces aren’t particularly attractive; a mouth full of metal can also be uncomfortable and inconvenient, not to mention messy when you have to eat and drink with them in! With Invisalign, you won’t have fixed metal braces, but clear plastic aligners which can be removed when you eat and drink instead. This means that you don’t have to clean them up after a meal – phew! The aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth to gradually move them into the desired position. What’s also appealing to many people about this is that you can remove the aligners when you brush and floss, enabling you to maintain good oral hygiene. You also have the flexibility to remove them when you play sports or have a special occasion – the choice is yours.
But the biggest ‘wow’ factor – and the source of all the secrecy – is that when you wear Invisalign, they are barely visible to other people. The aligners are clear plastic and sit comfortably on your gum line, so your teeth show clearly through the plastic. This allows patients to feel confident in their appearance, while realigning their teeth. Anyone is potentially eligible for treatment if they have all of their adult teeth; Invisalign even offers a range specifically for teenagers too called Invisalign Teen.
What do I need to do to be in the club?!
Okay, so it’s not really a club! But, to become a patient who is realigning their teeth using Invisalign, you will need to have a consultation with us here at Buttercup 7 Day Dental. We will assess your alignment needs and if you have mild to moderate issues, we will probably be able to treat you using Invisalign. During the consultation we will take X-rays and a scan of your mouth using iTero technology from which the measurements for your bespoke aligners will be made for you. With this scan, we can also provide you with a 3D animation of how your teeth will appear after the completion of treatment. There’s nothing like a bit of show and tell to get you excited about treatment! Once you receive your aligners, you will be given a few sets to take home. You will normally need to change these every couple of weeks or so and then pop in to us for a check-up around every 6 weeks.
So, if Invisalign sounds like the treatment for you to help you discreetly get a wonderful smile, don’t hesitate to contact us. We want you to get the best treatment and we’ll guide you and provide you with what’s right for you – and you deserve the best!
