If you were told you needed braces as a child but your parents could not afford private treatment, or if you had braces and now your teeth have moved out of alignment, it could be time to come and see the dentist in Glasgow at Tiwari Watson Dental Care to find out what we can do to straighten your teeth.
Our dentist Dr Raashi Tiwari is an accredited provider of Invisalign Go. Invisalign is a way to straighten teeth that has been changing the face of teeth straightening since the late 1990s. Since it first became available, this invisible treatment has been used successfully by more than 4 million people around the world.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign has done away with traditional brackets and wires that pull your teeth into alignment and replaced them with devices that look like mouth guards but have little bumps and ridges inside them that push your teeth to straighten them out.
Instead of one device that is fixed to your teeth and needs to be adjusted every few weeks, you get a series of aligners that snap on over your teeth. It’s the progression through the series that gradually moves your teeth along to a straighter place.
Invisalign is made from very thin, clear plastic and when you put them on over your teeth, because they fit so well, they are pretty much unnoticeable. This is a real plus for professional adults and self-conscious teens.
Another big plus is the fact that Invisalign aligners come out for eating and drinking anything more than plain water, and cleaning. It means you don’t have to change what you eat and you don’t have to spend as much time fussing over making sure you have got all the food out from under your braces. Some people even find that they lose weight while using Invisalign because it cuts out mindless snacking.
Invisalign works best on mild to moderate misalignment issues. The average treatment time is about a year.
