There are several options available when it comes to straightening your teeth however, none of them offer the level of comfort, convenience and confidence that Invisalign can offer.
If you are an adult then choosing to straighten your teeth can be a big decision that will not only affect your appearance but also your lifestyle as well. With Invisalign, you will be able to improve your smile without having to put your life on hold. Invisalign involve using aligners to straighten your teeth as opposed to braces that involve having wires and brackets in your mouth.
These aligners are removable, allowing you to eat whatever food that you want and giving you the benefit of being able to take them out whenever it is that you want. With Invisalign you will be able to brush and floss your teeth normally, offering better periodontal health. With smooth, comfortable plastic instead of sharp metal in your mouth, you also won’t have to worry about your cheeks and gums becoming irritated. It effectively treats a wide range of dental problems that you may have for example it can treat: crowding, spacing, cross-bite, overbite and under-bite.
At our dental practice in Glasgow, we have been a provider of Invisalign for a number of years now. When you come to us our dentist will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth which will be used to create a digital 3D image of them. From these, one of our dentists will be able to map out a precise treatment plan that includes the exact movements of your teeth, telling you the approximate length of the treatment.
Through using Invisalign, our dentists will be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of the treatment. Throughout the whole of the treatment you can expect there to be a series of custom-made, clear aligners that have been specifically made for you. The aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks or gums.
This type of straightening treatment can be more affordable than other procedures depending on you and your teeth. When you come to us for the initial consultation the cost will be discussed and you’ll be able to take the treatment plan away with you.
