Invisalign Glasgow for modern teeth straightening
By Hannah Kemp 03rd Mar 2023
Misalignment of the teeth is a common issue here in the UK. Most people are affected by a certain extent of misalignment; whether it be very minor or quite complex. Even those who have undergone orthodontic treatment when they were younger may find that their teeth have become slightly crooked over the years, especially if they didn’t continue to wear a retainer. There is no single known cause for misalignment issues of the teeth but there are certain factors which can worsen the issue. Sucking your thumb when you are young can cause orthodontic issues as can the prolonged use of a soother or a bottle. Genetics can affect the alignment of your teeth, as can environmental factors such as your diet and lifestyle. If you have crooked or wonky teeth, then you can speak to us at Buttercup 7 Day Dental to find out about your teeth straightening options. These options will not only help improve the appearance of your smile but they can also help improve your dental health.
Here at Buttercup 7 Day Dental we are pleased to be able to offer you Invisalign Glasgow for addressing your dental needs.
Who needs Invisalign?
Invisalign Glasgow is a modern method of teeth straightening that has become hugely popular across the world. In the last 20 years, Invisalign Glasgow has already helped correct more than 14 million smiles and continues to be one of the most popular choices amongst dentists and patients alike. This method is used by patients who may have historically avoided orthodontic treatment due to wanting to avoid drawing further attention to their mouth by wearing traditional braces. Other patients who have had traditional braces when they were younger may also use this method of teeth straightening to help further correct their smile. Even patients who do not need orthodontic treatment have chosen to perfect their teeth with Invisalign Glasgow.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is discrete and can help straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. Invisalign uses clear thermoplastic aligners that are designed using the latest digital dental technology. A three dimensional scan of your mouth will be used to create a digital image which can be manipulated to create a neatly aligned smile. The software will then calculate the movements that are necessary for your teeth to make and will create a sequence of aligners to help your teeth through those motions. These aligners are then 3-D printed and you can work your way through the process in the comfort of your own home.
We will carry out the initial fitting for you which includes placing invisible attachments to the surface of your teeth to help hold the aligners firmly in place. The number of aligners that you need will vary depending on your dental needs. Each aligner has to be worn for approximately 22 hours a day over two weeks for optimal results. Compliance is key with Invisalign and by adhering to the protocol you can achieve a beautiful, healthy smile in 6-12 months. Speak to us at Buttercup 7 Day Dental today to find out more.
