Orthodontics and braces for adults have a wide range of benefits for our patients in the Glasgow area.
Teen and adult orthodontics can solve issues such as:
When you visit us for orthodontic treatment in Glasgow, we will give you a full dental check-up to assess your mouth and dental health. We provide a full assessment by taking x-rays, making impressions (moulds of your teeth) and taking photographs.
This practice will identify any issues that require immediate attention and give our Glasgow dentists a better idea of what orthodontic treatment will be best for you.
With a range of new and exciting orthodontic options available, our Glasgow patients can gain straighter, healthier teeth in a quick time without the hassle of traditional fixed braces.
We have some fantastic teeth straightening treatments available at our dental clinic in Glasgow, including:
Below we’ve outlined each orthodontic option in more detail.
A fixed brace is the most common type of brace today, often known as "train tracks".
Brackets are glued onto the teeth and linked by wires. Small elastic hoops are often used to hold the wire in position. The wires exert gentle pressure to move the teeth into a new position.
These fixed braces are extremely common amongst teenagers and are highly effective at straightening teeth over an extended period of time. Treatment of fixed braces can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the patient's needs.
The brackets can be metal, ceramic (virtually invisible) or even gold, and the elastic hoops can come in many different colours.
Although braces are somewhat embarrassing as a teenager, the majority of adults would be against wearing traditional braces as they look unsightly are tend to be very noticeable when in the mouth.
As a professional, the last thing you want is for colleagues or clients to focus on your braces rather than on what you’re saying.
This is why The Park Practice has worked hard to offer alternative orthodontic solutions for adult braces in Glasgow.
Our clear adult braces allow adults to go about their daily life as normal, without the embarrassment and discomfort of traditional braces.
Clear braces are discreet, effective and increasingly common amongst adults in Glasgow and throughout the UK.
Treatment time can be quick and at the end of your orthodontic journey you will be left with a beautifully straight smile that will stay intact for many years to come, and possibly a lifetime is well maintained.
A removable brace is sometimes used for correcting a simple problem, such as moving a single tooth or expanding the dental arch.
Removable braces have a plastic base plate with wires and springs attached. Removable braces need to be worn all the time except for cleaning or while playing sport.
The Park Practice partners with Clear Aligner to offer a removable clear brace to adult patients in Glasgow.

Retainers are usually used at the end of orthodontic treatment.
All patients should wear retainers to hold their teeth in the new position that has been achieved through dental braces.
These retainers can be removable or fixed and are an important part of treatment. For many, this part of the treatment is where patients slip up and suffer the consequences later down the line.
Make sure you wear your retainer during the specified times your Glasgow dentist sets out. In that way, you’ll be sure of keeping your teeth straight and perfectly aligned for many years to come.
Braces and retainers are now being used by almost one million people in the UK and increasingly by adults.
Being able to bite together correctly can help you eat more comfortably and care for your teeth and gums more easily, whilst having a straighter, more aligned smile will boost your confidence and your happiness.
