Then here at Harwood Dental, we have the perfect solution – Invisalign’s® clear aligner system could well be for you!

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a clear aligner system designed to straighten teeth in as little as 7 weeks! Unlike fixed braces, there are no wires or brackets. Therefore, they contain no metal and they’re nearly invisible when you wear them. This means that you can carry on living your life as normal; without making it obvious that you’re undergoing any type of orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign® can treat a range of orthodontic cases, from small cosmetic alignments, to more severe cases – the treatment can also cure under or over-bites; by manipulating your jaw throughout the process.

During Your Consultation

Here at Harwood Dental, you can come in for a consultation and preview what your new smile could look like with Invisalign®. In the space of 20-30 minutes you can gain an understanding of how the clear aligners will move your teeth and show you an animation of the process.

Invisalign® uses a virtual 3D treatment plan which shows the series of movements your teeth are projected to go through over the course of the treatment. This enables you to see what your teeth are expected to look like when the treatment is finished and monitor changes as you go.

What Happens Next?

After your consultation, digital scans will be sent to Invisalign®, who produce your bespoke aligners. They’ll then be sent directly to the comfort of your own home. You’ll need to change them every two weeks – after each new set your teeth become straighter until you reach your final set of aligners, after this, you’ll need to wear retainers to hold the new shape of your teeth. Because the aligners are removable you can maintain good oral hygiene and eat whatever you like – your lifestyle remains uninterrupted with Invisalign®.

I've Had Braces in the Past, Can I Have Invisalign®?

Yes, a number of our Invisalign® patients have previously had braces. Many of them weren’t happy with the results, or didn’t wear their retainers following treatment. Invisalign® is the perfect orthodontic solution to straighten your teeth discretely and effectively.

What Happens After Treatment?

As mentioned above, you’ll need to wear retainers to hold the position of your straight teeth for a certain period of time. We also offer free teeth whitening & shaping included in many of our Invisalign® treatment packages.
