Our approach to dental care is holistic; we focus not just on treating dental issues but also on educating our patients to promote lifelong oral health.

From routine check-ups to complex restorative procedures, we are adept at handling various dental concerns. But among our services, one treatment stands out in popularity due to its effectiveness and aesthetic appeal: Invisalign. This innovative solution for straightening teeth has transformed the smiles of countless patients, making it a cornerstone of our cosmetic dentistry options.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed to straighten teeth discreetly and comfortably. It utilises a series of clear, custom-made aligners that are virtually invisible when worn, making them an ideal solution for adults and teenagers who are self-conscious about the appearance of traditional braces. The aligners are removable, which means patients can eat, drink, brush, and floss with ease, without the restrictions associated with fixed braces.

The Invisalign system is a product of cutting-edge 3D computer-imaging technology. By creating a precise roadmap of your dental structure, it allows us to plan the gradual movement of your teeth towards the desired position. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and is then replaced with the next in the series, progressively shifting your teeth until the final alignment is achieved.

What truly sets Invisalign apart is its versatility. It can correct a wide range of dental concerns, from minor tooth misalignment to more complex bite issues. Whether you’re looking to improve your smile for aesthetic reasons or to address functional problems, Invisalign offers a customised treatment plan that aligns with your personal goals and lifestyle.

Why Invisalign is popular at Harwood Dental Practice

Invisalign has become a sought-after treatment among our patients at Harwood Dental Practice for several compelling reasons. Firstly, the convenience and flexibility it provides cannot be overstated. The ability to remove the aligners during meals and oral hygiene routines means that patients can maintain their dietary habits and keep their teeth clean without any additional hassle. This aspect of Invisalign is especially appealing to those who lead active and busy lives.

Another reason for its popularity is the aesthetic advantage it offers. Given that the aligners are transparent, many of our patients appreciate the fact that they can undergo orthodontic treatment without drawing attention to their teeth. This discreet nature of Invisalign aligners allows for an uninterrupted social, professional, and personal life, as the treatment progresses almost unnoticed by peers and colleagues.

Moreover, the comfort factor plays a significant role in why many choose Invisalign. Traditional braces, with their brackets and wires, can sometimes cause irritation to the soft tissues of the mouth. In contrast, Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic and are custom-fitted to snugly wrap around the teeth, minimising discomfort and reducing the occurrence of abrasions.

FAQs about Invisalign at Harwood Dental Practice

Q: How long does Invisalign treatment take? A: The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case. On average, it can take anywhere between 6 to 18 months. However, we will be able to provide you with a more accurate timeline after evaluating your individual needs during the initial consultation.

Q: Is Invisalign treatment painful? A: While Invisalign is generally not painful, some patients may experience mild discomfort or pressure for a few days after fitting a new aligner. This sensation is usually temporary and is an indication that the treatment is working as the teeth begin to shift towards their new position.

Q: Can I eat and drink while wearing Invisalign aligners? A: We recommend removing your Invisalign aligners while eating and drinking anything other than water. This prevents staining and damage to the aligners, as well as ensures that food particles do not get trapped, which could lead to dental issues.

Q: How do I clean my Invisalign aligners? A: You can clean your Invisalign aligners by rinsing them under lukewarm water and brushing them gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Avoid using hot water as it can warp the plastic. Additionally, we provide specific cleaning instructions and products to keep your aligners in pristine condition.

Q: Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech? A: Some people may have a slight lisp when they first start wearing their Invisalign aligners. This is typically temporary and resolves as you become accustomed to having the aligners in your mouth.
