The Skye Dental Group has some of Glasgow’s most established, hygienic and professional practices under its umbrella. This includes The Glasgow Dentist, based in the Rutherglen area of Glasgow.
The practice offers a range of private dental treatments such as teeth straightening systems, Damon Braces, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, as well as dental implants for missing teeth and general dentistry and hygienist services.
Damon Braces are a fixed brace teeth treatment, but instead of the traditional elastic or metal bands used in traditional braces, it uses friction-free technology to straighten the teeth quickly and painlessly.
The braces use friction-free technology and self-ligating memory wires to move the teeth gently. The brackets use a sliding mechanism, and the braces are much lighter and finer than traditional fixed braces.
Invisalign are a series of custom-made clear aligners, which are worn for two weeks at a time and then replaced with the next set in the series until your teeth are straightened. The aligners should be worn for around 21 hours a day to maximise the straightening results.
The clear aligners can be easily removed, which enables the patient to clean and floss their teeth with ease. They are also virtually invisible, so the teeth straightening system is very discreet.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a fixed brace system, which straightens the teeth within six months. It usually focuses on the front teeth and is much lighter and more discreet than traditional fixed braces.
They are great if you have a big event such as a wedding or special occasion coming up and you need your teeth straightening within a relatively short period of time.
