Straighter teeth and an improved sense of confidence could be yours with Invisalign Glasgow
By Hannah Kemp 22nd Jan 2020
The truth is that no matter how vigilant you are when it comes to cleaning your teeth, the one thing you cannot fix is a crooked smile.
However, if you were not born with perfectly aligned teeth, there are ways you can correct your pearly whites at our practice, Buttercup 7 Day Dental Practice, where straighter teeth are yours for the taking!
What is Invisalign Glasgow?
Invisalign is the most advanced transparent aligner system the world over, that works to realign misaligned teeth quickly and effectively.
Using 3D digital imaging equipment, we design aligner plates that fit your mouth precisely. We can also monitor how your treatment is progressing in much the same way.
What does this mean for you? By using Invisalign, you can know how your teeth may look post-treatment before you have even begun, resulting in realistic expectations and an absence of false or exaggerated promises.
Not only can we boast advanced technology, but we are proud of the aligner trays that are produced, which are translucent and, therefore, subtle to wear and highly durable.
Who might Invisalign Glasgow appeal to?
Invisalign Glasgow is popular among children and adults alike who want straighter teeth, but do not want to go down the conventional route of metal braces.
While the designs of modern-day metal braces have significantly improved since they were first introduced to society, people still find them conspicuous.
Being completely metal-free, Invisalign, or invisible braces are subtle, sleek, easy-to-wear, and provide a user experience that is pleasant and comfortable.
Aesthetically pleasing and highly functional
Invisalign is a practical appliance that moves your teeth into place gradually, using multiple aligner trays. These trays place pressure on your teeth in order of sequence on the instructions of your dentist.
Do they hurt?
Initially you may be aware of them, and when you change your aligners for a new version (which happens bi-monthly), you will feel some degree of discomfort as your teeth adapt to being moved.
For the most part, however, your experience will be comfortable, to the point where you may forget that you are wearing your aligners.
Are there any pitfalls to wearing the device?
Like any device, Invisalign should be compatible with your needs and lifestyle. If you are absent-minded or undisciplined, invisible braces may be less than suitable for you.
You will be required to remove invisible braces, which are detachable, when you eat and brush your teeth. Therefore, you will need to replace them in your mouth once these activities have been completed. If you are prone to losing things, consider storing your device in a retainer box, or find a permanent straightening aid.
How long will my treatment last?
This depends on the extent and nature of your dental issue, but you should prepare yourself for six to 16 weeks. Consider this an approximation, because these times may vary should complications arise.
A common complaint among brace wearers is the development of mouth ulcers. While there are soothing gels, it would be convenient for our patients not to experience mouth sores caused by metal rubbing against mouth tissue at all.
The smooth run plastic poses no risk of causing pain and minor injury.
