Invisalign Glasgow,

We need to straighten this out! Myths and truths about Invisalign by Buttercup 7 Day Dental


Before you undertake anything new, you are likely to research it online; if you are considering dental treatments, like Invisalign in Glasgow, you are definitely going to research it online, especially if it is cosmetic!

And, while the internet is a great resource for people who are looking for information about procedures, it can also be a source of misinformation and false stories. While people who are trained in the field of dentistry may be able to see through these myths, if you are new to the concept of cosmetic dental work, it can be harder to separate the facts from the urban legends.

If you are considering straightening your teeth with an invisible brace, you may have heard rumours that this treatment doesn’t work, is expensive or is even uncomfortable! What’s the truth?

At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, our team of cosmetic dentists helps you navigate the lies and the truths about Invisalign Glasgow, allowing you to make an informed decision about whether the brace is right for you. We will answer any questions you have about the process, aftercare and suitability criteria; when you come to our team at Buttercup 7 Day Dental, you are in good hands!

But what are some of the most prominent myths about Invisalign Glasgow?

The trays stain easily

The trays used by Invisalign Glasgow are made of clear, malleable material that, if cared for correctly, should not stain.

However, it is also worth noting that depending on the severity of your misalignment, you may only need to wear each aligner for 2 weeks, preventing stains from accumulating.

It doesn’t work

This aligner does work, provided that you follow the advice given by your dental team!

Many dentists require you to wear the aligner for up to 22 hours per day and, once treatment is completed, we will provide you with a retainer to prevent any relapse.

If you do not follow the advice provided by our team, then you are damaging the chance of the aligner working successfully.

It’s too expensive

Many dental surgeries that offer this brace also provide either financing or a payment plan, to help you breakdown the overall cost into monthly instalments.

At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we can offer suitable patients both of these options, meaning there will be no stress linked to the cost of the treatment.

It can only help certain people

While it is true that this brace may only be suited to certain people, there are new versions being developed every day, meaning that now, there are options that can treat more severe misalignments and even help prevent the development of issues in children.

Obviously, it is up to the discretion of our team to decide if you are a suitable candidate for this brace.

It takes longer than traditional braces

On average, treatment with invisible braces takes around 6 months in adults, versus orthodontic braces that take up to 24 months. When you decide to go with this brace, you will have that straighter smile in no time!
