INVISALIGN IN FARGO
Straighten your teeth without anyone noticing!
YOUR ALTERNATIVE TO BRACES
Like braces, Invisalign straightens teeth and corrects smiles flaws. However, Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of metal brackets and wires.
These aligners are custom made to fit comfortably over your teeth and gradually move them into alignment. You can remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Invisalign is the world’s leading clear aligner, and its technology has advanced significantly. Patients who were previously not candidates may now be eligible.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS FOR INVISALIGN?
Here’s a general overview of treatment with our Invisalign Provider, Dr. Derek Harnish:
Schedule a consultation to confirm if you’re a candidate.
Have a 3D digital impression of your teeth taken (no goopy impressions!).
View a digital smile design preview of what your finished smile will look like to ensure you’ll be happy with the result.
Dr. Harnish will work with the Invisalign lab to custom design your aligners.
Receive and wear your aligners for 22 hours per day.
Switch to a new set of aligners as instructed.
Visit Dr. Harnish periodically to check your progress and make adjustments as needed.
Once you’re happy with your smile, it’s time to show it off!
Most of our patients invest in the use of a high-frequency vibration (HFV) device to speed up treatment time. This orthodontic device will help you switch trays every seven days vs. every 14 days – cutting your treatment time in half.
At our office, this whole process takes an average of six to nine months to complete.
INVISALIGN VS. BRACES
See why patients choose clear aligners over traditional orthodontics.
It’s no secret braces are a nuisance to keep clean. With Invisalign, remove the aligners when you need to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You don’t need to change your lifestyle with this ortho treatment!
Invisalign treatment is often faster than traditional orthodontics, especially if you use HFV. If you start this month, you could be done by this time next year! Plus, you’ll likely begin to see results in just a few months.
Invisalign’s SmartTrack technology ensures your teeth move at a steady rate, which should not cause you pain. With braces, there’s a risk of breaking a bracket, having a wire poke you, or irritating your gums.
One of the main reasons why Invisalign is so popular is that it’s clear and hardly noticeable. No bulky metal, wires, etc. The aligners are very thin and custom-fitted to your teeth for a seamless finish.
Were you told you’re not a candidate for Invisalign years ago? If so, let’s try again! With advances in technology, your case may now be treatable. You don’t need to settle for metal braces!
Invisalign can straighten most teeth, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, open bites, crowded teeth, baby and permanent teeth, and generally straighter teeth.
The process of Invisalign was very easy. I did not expect so much result in such a short time. At work, people don’t even know I have Invisalign because they can’t see it.
