Invisalign Glasgow,

Invisalign Glasgow, giving you more than a grin


Have you got misaligned teeth? Here is a dentist with a difference! You can have an initial consultation free of charge, park outside the front door, and even arrange to have a weekend or evening appointment. Your misaligned teeth can be a thing of the past, and we can make it easy for you to get treatment. Our surgery waiting area does not even resemble a dental surgery; it looks like a coffee shop, so you will feel as though you are having a cup of coffee with a friend.

Using Invisalign Glasgow, we can straighten your teeth without the use of traditional dental braces. Our approach may be different, but our treatments are of high quality and delivered by a team of well-trained, talented clinicians.

Where dentistry and technology are forces for good

For decades now, technology has been racing away with innovations, and dentistry has been taking advantage of all this progress. Dental braces traditionally were made from metal and used blocks, bands and wires to gradually move teeth into better alignment. Invisalign Glasgow achieves the same result using a more discreet and comfortable method.

The use of algorithms that can straighten your teeth by creating appliances specific to your dental needs is part of the Invisalign Glasgow treatment. Dental putty is no longer necessary because of 3D scanners, which can take thousands of pictures per second of the interior of your mouth. These images can then be used to produce images that allow us to show you a virtual image of what your smile will look like when treatment has finished. The latest software allows us to communicate with the laboratory so that they can create your aligners. A personal treatment plan will be designed, and because everything is done digitally, the process will be more accurate and quicker.

What are these aligners?

Unlike traditional dental braces, Invisalign uses a different method to realign your teeth. You will be fitted with what looks like a gum shield, which fits over your teeth, unlike a dental brace, which must be permanently attached to the surface of your teeth. A series of aligners is created based on the images taken by the scanner and the software used in the treatment plan. Each of these aligners has a slightly different orientation, so it is important to wear them in the correct sequence. We follow the treatment plan and maintain a record of your progress. The aligners gradually move your teeth to the desired positions. You will need to wear each aligner for at least 22 hours a day. They can be removed to brush and floss your teeth or eat. Each aligner also needs to be worn for about two to three weeks. Once one aligner has done its job, you will be required to wear the next one in the series, and so on, until you finally reach the last aligner.

Treatment completed

At the end of the treatment, it will still be necessary to wear a retainer, which is designed to hold your teeth in their final positions and allow them to settle. The duration of the process from start to finish depends on the condition being treated and can take 6 to 24 months. Once your treatment is complete, you will probably not be able to contain yourself, and you will want to take selfies and send them to all your friends and family. Invisalign can bring a broad, confident smile to your face where previously there was only self-consciousness.
