Options with the Berkeley Clinic Orthodontist Glasgow

Do you wish you had straight teeth? Do you rarely smile and feel self-conscious about showing your teeth? You are not alone. There are many people in Glasgow who suffer the same problem. Many have decided to approach an orthodontist in Glasgow for help. However most people dread the thought of wearing metal braces, or “train tracks”, for several months or even years. Although you would do anything to have a perfect smile you may not be willing to deal with having metal in your mouth 24 hours a day and dealing with the discomfort that come with it. A professional orthodontist in Glasgow now offers multiple alternative to metal braces. The Berkeley Clinic boasts a fully qualified, expert orthodontist from Glasgow who can perfect your smile without chaining braces to your teeth. Inman Aligner and Invisalign are two types of brace that are less intrusive on your day to day living.

Inman Aligner

This brace is removable! It is made of titanium and fitted to the mould of your teeth. There is a wire that runs along the length of your teeth, similar to standard braces. However there are no permanent fixtures on the individual teeth. The Inman Aligner can be clipped on to your teeth much like a gum shield, and easily removed the same way. You wear the brace a maximum of 20 hours per day, therefore you can take off a few times throughout the day. For example if you are eating or if you are having photographs taken. Overall a much more pleasant experience. Also the Inman Aligner is a much faster teeth straightening process. Typical cases are completed between 6 and 18 weeks. This brace is best used for overcrowding or protrusion of the front teeth.


As you may have guessed from the name, the Invisalign brace is invisible! Thus eliminating one of the biggest deterrents for getting braces. In likeness to the Inman Aligner, Invisalign is clipped on like a gum shield and is removable. There are no permanent fixtures. Again you are free to brush your teeth and eat without the debilitation that comes with train tracks. It is recommended to wear this brace for 22 hours per day. However due to the transparency of the brace, it will probably go unnoticed in most situations.  The timescale for results with Invisalign are 6 to 9 months.  These innovative braces are designed to correct an array of problems. Such as overbites, crooked teeth, overcrowding, spacing and much more.
