If you have not heard of this dental treatment before or are interested in investing in this treatment at Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we are here to give you all the necessary information to ensure that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to invest in Invisalign in Glasgow.
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental we strive to provide a professional and positive service for our patients. We also offer a free consultation which gives you a chance to explore your options and find out whether Invisalign in Glasgow is the best treatment for you.
So what’s so special about Invisalign in Glasgow
A form of teeth straightening, our practice Buttercup 7 Day dental offers Invisalign for our patients who feel as though they will benefit from this dental treatment. Invisalign can be used to straighten teeth which are crooked and can also fix gaps in the teeth.
Using advanced brace technology, Invisalign uses custom made aligners which slowly move your teeth into their desired position. During your treatment with us, you will be given a series of aligners which you will be asked to change every two weeks or every week depending on what our doctor advises. At each check up appointment with us, you will be given several sets of aligners to last you until your next visit. We advise our patients to wear their aligners for at least 20 hours a day, to ensure maximum treatment.
The Invisalign aligners are clear so they are almost completely invisible and therefore incredibly discreet. This makes it a popular teeth straightening treatment with our adult patients.
The length of time it takes for our Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth depends from patient to patient but you can normally achieve your desired results between six to sixteen weeks, which makes it much a faster teeth straightening option when compared to other treatments like traditional metal braces.
The benefits of having Invisalign in Glasgow
As previously mentioned, the aligners used for the Invisalign treatment are clear which means that they are discreet. This is one of the main reasons why patients choose this method of teeth straightening, as it means they can undergo this treatment without people’s knowledge.
Unlike fixed appliances, such as traditional metal braces, these aligners are removable, which means that you can enjoy all of your favourite foods without fear of them becoming stuck in your teeth and you can maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing after every meal, which we also recommend.
Although patients can experience slight discomfort when firstly changing to a new aligner, that discomfort soon fades and you are able to carry out your daily activities as normal. We also advise our patients to change their trays before going to bed to avoid any discomfort during the day.
So how much does Invisalign cost?
Although the cost varies each patient, our Invisalign treatment starts from £1500. At your free consultation you will be given a more accurate cost estimate.
