If you are thinking about getting braces in Glasgow, either for yourself or a child, it is worth getting advice and treatment from dentists who have undergone extensive postgraduate training and work solely in the field of braces and alignment.
There’s been a recent trend for family dentists to get accreditation in braces in Glasgow, such as Invisalign or Six Month Smiles. The dentists attend courses that take a few days at most before they can start offering these devices. A trained braces dentist, such as us at Park Orthodontics, has been through several years of postgraduate training in this area of dentistry. At our clinic, which is devoted solely to alignment dentistry, our two dentists, Andrew McGregor, Edward McLaughlin, have nearly 30 years of experience in the field of dentistry. And Nathan Harrison is a dentist who has much experience in working with anxious children and children with extra needs.
Having these great dentists to help you with your braces in Glasgow, was a large part of why we have been shortlisted for Practice of the Year 2018, Dentist of the Year 2017/18 (Andrew McGregor), and Innovation of the Year 2018 in the dental industry awards.
Private and NHS
We offer private treatment as well as NHS treatment. This means that you can bring your child to us for braces in Glasgow, and if their alignment issues are not severe enough to qualify for NHS treatment, or if the waiting lists are too long for your convenience, you won’t have to begin your search for a braces dentist all over again.
Our braces in Glasgow
We offer the full range of up-to-date braces that you may see on friends’ and colleagues’ teeth. These include:
- Six Month Smiles fixed clear braces
- Invisalign removable clear aligners
- Damon braces for faster, more accurate results
- Lingual braces, which go behind the teeth
- Inman Aligner, which moves the very front teeth.
When your teeth are finally in alignment, you will need to wear a retainer to keep them in position while the bone settles down around them. This may take some time.
