Invisalign in Glasgow

Fix your smile in secret

Here at Park Orthodontics in Glasgow, Invisalign braces are popular with adults looking to improve their smile. Many who choose Invisalign are professionals who don’t want to wear traditional fixed braces. Often as part of their job they have public speaking or customer facing roles, or are on camera. Having confidence in your appearance is important, particularly with your smile. If wearing traditional visible metal braces is not an option for you, Invisalign in Glasgow could be the key to your new smile.

So, what is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system of teeth straightening that is almost invisible. It is not attached to your teeth like traditional metal braces. You are able to, and should, remove your Invisalign braces for eating and cleaning. The Invisalign brace is made from clear plastic resin. This is used to form aligners that look like plastic copies of your teeth, much like mouth guards. The plastic used for these aligners is very thin, approximately 0.3mm, making them barely perceptible when they are in your mouth.

Clear progress

At the beginning of your treatment we will take a 3D digital image of your teeth with a convenient hand-held scanner. From this a digital tooth alignment plan is created and your set of clear aligners is created. This set of aligners is designed only for you. They follow a clear progression that you can see with your own eyes before you start your treatment. Simply line up your Invisalign braces beside each other to see the journey you will make from day one, wonky teeth, to the final day, straight teeth.

Does this style of brace take a long time to work?

From our experience here in Glasgow, Invisalign treatment can be a little shorter than traditional brace treatment time: 12-18 months on average, more for complex cases. Treatment is also partly down to you being dedicated to your treatment. Having removable braces takes commitment. They should be worn for as long as possible, preferably 22 hours per day. If you don’t keep up with that, your treatment time will be extended.
