Invisalign Lite in Glasgow

Wondering if there's a quicker path to a straighter smile for your minor orthodontic problem? Explore the transformative possibilities of Invisalign Lite at Devonshire Dental Care in Glasgow.

What is Invisalign Lite?

Invisalign Lite is a treatment which has been designed for patients with minor orthodontic problems, including: minor crowding, small gaps between the teeth, poorly positioned teeth and slightly crooked teeth. Invisalign Lite braces work in exactly the same way as traditional Invisalign braces but there are fewer aligners in the series; consequently, treatment time is much shorter. The aligners are custom-made to fit the patient. Each one is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next one in the series. Patients opting for the Invisalign Lite treatment will usually be prescribed a maximum of ten aligners and treatment will usually be complete within six months.

How does Invisalign Lite work?

Invisalign Lite works by generating gentle forces to urge the teeth to move into the correct position. Each aligner is custom-fit to move the teeth in the desired direction to give the patient a healthy looking, straight smile. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and must be worn for at least 21 hours per day, after which the aligner is then replaced with the next aligner in the series.

What are the advantages of Invisalign Lite?

Invisalign Lite is an ideal treatment for people who have minor orthodontic problems. It can produce incredible results without the patient having to worry about the physical appearance of the braces or the discomfort of wearing metal braces. Invisalign Lite aligners treat minor problems very quickly and patients can achieve the smile they’ve always wanted in just a few months.

Stages of treatment

  • Stage one: During an initial consultation, the dentist will discuss the treatment with the patient and perform an examination to check that the treatment is suitable.
  • Stage two: A dental impression of the patient’s teeth will be created and digital images will be taken; these will be converted into 3D images, which will be used to plan the treatment in accordance with the patient’s specific orthodontic problems.
  • Stage three: The images are used by the dental technicians to manufacture the patient’s aligners, after which the aligners are then sent back to the dentist.
  • Stage four: Once the dentist has checked the fit of the aligners, the patient’s treatment will start and they will be advised to wear the aligners for at least 21 hours per day.

Frequently asked questions

How do the braces work?

The braces work by exerting gentle pressure on the teeth. The aligners are designed to push the teeth in the right direction over the course of treatment, with each one being of a slightly different shape in accordance with the treatment plan that is produced from the digital images and moulds of the patient’s teeth.

How long will treatment take?

The Invisalign Lite treatment is designed for people with minor orthodontic problems, so treatment time is very short. Most treatments are complete within six months and people with very minor problems may only need to wear aligners for a few months.

Why should I choose Invisalign Lite?

Invisalign Lite is a great solution for those who want to improve the aesthetics of their smile without worrying about the appearance of their braces. The treatment time is short and incredible results can be achieved in a short time without any pain or concerns about the way a metal brace looks. The Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces and they can be removed, which means that the patient can eat and drink whatever they want and clean their teeth properly. This promotes good oral health and reduces the risk of the patient developing an oral health condition.

Is wearing the braces painful?

The aligners are designed to be very comfortable. They are made from plastic and created to fit the individual perfectly. Unlike metal braces, there are no wires which need tightening, which can otherwise be very painful and uncomfortable for many patients. When you first start wearing the aligners, you may find them a little uncomfortable, but this is only because you are not used to them. You will soon get used to the braces and should not experience any pain or discomfort.

Is Invisalign Lite suitable for everyone?

Invisalign Lite is designed for patients with more minor orthodontic problems, including minor crowding, crooked teeth and minor problems with the positioning of the teeth. Invisalign Lite may not be suitable for patients with more complex problems. If a great deal of movement is required, an alternative treatment may be recommended.

How long do i have to wear the braces for?

You are advised to wear the aligners for at least 21 hours each day, to ensure the treatment is effective.

Are there any side-effects?

To begin with, the aligners may take a little getting used to. They may feel a little funny and you may experience very mild discomfort. However, this will soon subside and you will get used to wearing the aligners. Some people may find that they develop a bit of a lisp to start with, but speech should return to normal after 1 or 2 days.

Devonshire Dental Care provides the best dental care that I have ever experienced. I recently developed a bad toothache and after having no sleep overnight, I called them as soon as they opened and not only did Nicola and her team fit me in but also relieved my pain. Nicola also went above and beyond in my opinion when she called me later in the day to see if I was doing ok and to let me know I should come back in if I had any problems. Thank you Nicola and the amazing team at Devonshire Dental, you are outstanding and I cannot recommend you more.

I went to Devonshire on a friend’s recommendation after receiving a treatment plan from another dentist indicating I need 4 fillings. Nicola made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in. Her professionalism is complemented by her friendly demeanour. Nicola advised I only needed 1 filling rather than 4. The filling was done perfectly and looks completely natural. My hygiene appointment was quick and thorough. The staff are really friendly and professional. Having trust in your dentist is so important and seeing Nicola has made me feel glad I came to the practice. I’ll be a returning patient and will recommend to all friends and colleagues.

I can’t say enough good things about Devonshire dental care and Mr Alan Rennie. Everyone there has a very relaxed and friendly approach, Alan talks you through your treatment options thoroughly and, after seeing him for 10 years I can confirm his work is to a very high stardard. I have been terrified of the dentist my whole life but going to Alan Rennie has really helped calm me down to the point going is much easier.
