By Hannah Kemp 28th Feb 2020
It is likely that you have heard the buzz about cosmetic braces.
Often clear or minimal in appearance, cosmetic braces are designed to help adults and teenagers who have crooked teeth to straighten their smiles. Typically, these braces and aligners are removable and offer the wearers an accelerated treatment time; these braces can help you to get that straighter smile in under six months!
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, our team is thoroughly experienced in using cosmetic braces to get you that straighter smile. One of our most popular braces with Invisalign Glasgow is designed for ease of wear, and to offer comfort along with lifestyle flexibility.
But, as with all things remarkable, you may be wondering if there is a catch? After all, the braces are invisible, removable and comfortable? Do they impact your speech? Do you have to give up sugar?
Read on to find out the answer to 5 FAQs about treatment with Invisalign Glasgow, to discover what a truly impressive aligner it is.
Will wearing it alter my speech?
As with most new things, there is a period of adaptation.
Invisalign Glasgow does not have any metal components, so it will not rub against your inner cheeks or tongue. However, for the first few days post-fitting, you may find wearing it to be a bit difficult, but once you have gotten used to it, your speech should return to normal.
Do I have to change my diet?
In a word, no.
While it is recommended that you minimise sugar and alcohol while wearing any braces, with this invisible brace you will not need to alter your diet significantly.
However, as this brace is removable, you can remove it while you eat and when you have finished eating, remember to clean your teeth before putting it back in.
Is there an adhesive that I will need to buy to hold it in place?
One of the key questions our staff at Buttercup 7 Day Dental is asked about this invisible brace is how it stays in place.
There are no adhesives, brackets or gels required as this brace is custom-fitted to your teeth. A series of aligners are involved in completing the treatment and, when your current aligner feels loose, put the next one in. No glue, no metal, and no wires or brackets!
How do I keep it clean?
Made from clear plastic, this invisible aligner is extremely simple to clean.
If you notice that it is getting dirty, just run it under a tap to remove any debris and, if needed, gently clean it with a soft brush.
Will it be expensive?
Money doesn’t grow on trees and at Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we know that the associated price tag with a cosmetic brace can be daunting.
However, our team is proud to be able to offer all of our patients a payment plan, helping you to spread the cost of your invisible braces treatment.
