Invisible Braces Glasgow
This is a very popular option, particularly for adults wanting straighter teeth. Many patients wearing so called invisible braces or clear braces tell us their friends do not even know they are wearing them. That is because advances in short term orthodontics mean that braces are more discrete than ever before.
Contact us for a free initial consultation and we will be happy to explain your clear braces options and how you can achieve a straighter and more natural looking smile in a surprisngly short time.
What are invisible braces?
All about Clear Braces
Video transcript: Invisible braces are braces which are suitable for most adults in mild to moderate crowding cases, or cases where people have spacing between their teeth.
They are suitable for patients well into their 50s. We've placed cosmetic or clear braces for patients of that age. There's not too much of a barrier in respect of age. As long as the teeth are healthy.
We would consider two basic options. When we talk about invisible we obviously mean hiding the braces by putting them behind the teeth or alternatively using clear plastic aligners so that they are almost invisible, unless they are looked at very closely by people standing at a fair distance.
When we speak about the individual types of invisible or clear braces we will usually refer to the proprietary names like Invisalign and Inman Aligner. And generally speak Invisalign braces have no wires at all which is why they are very popular.
Inman Aligner have discrete wires which are not too obvious but they work very quickly in terms of producing results which you can see within a few weeks.

Braces for adults
Braces used to be thought of as just for teenagers and school kids. No longer. Increasingly adults are coming to our Glasgow dental practice interested in straightening their teeth or perhaps closing a noticeable gap.
It is not just young adults coming to our door. There is no age limit for clear braces. The more important factors are the condition of your teeth and what sort of treatment you need. That is why we recommend an initial consultation with one of our dentists.
It is certainly true that the rise of clear braces has increased the number of adult coming to get their teeth straightened.
The fact they are more discrete in social situations and at work obviously appeals.
Why do adults get braces?
Some adults want braces because they have always had squint or overcrowded teeth and now they feel anxious or uncomfortable.
They may have had orthodontic treatment when they were children but did not stick with the treatment or failed to wear a retainer and the problem has returned.
Now they want straighter or more evenly distributed teeth for cosmetic reasons. They may want a more regular smile before they get married - or to give them fresh confidence when looking for a job.
It is certainly true that teeth can change position as we get older. This might be to do with an injury or a natural occurrence. Then the patient may want their once straight smile back again.
