Harpenden Orthodontics is a well-established orthodontic practice in the heart of the Hertfordshire township of Harpenden. The clinic treats children, teens and adults for a range of orthodontic problems, offering private and independent care. Orthodontic treatment under the NHS is also available for patients at Harpenden Orthodontics who are under 18 years old and meet IOTN criteria.
At Harpenden Orthodontics, patients can expect modern, high quality, orthodontic care. The team of orthodontic professionals working at the practice are highly skilled in a range of treatment options, in particular Invisalign. Harpenden Orthodontics has achieved Diamond Invisalign provider status in recognition of the number of patients they treat with this virtually invisible, aligner-based method.
In addition to Invisalign, Harpenden Orthodontics also straighten patients’ teeth with Insignia and Damon braces. Bespoke treatment plans are created using the iTero intraoral digital scanner at a free consultation. At Harpenden Orthodontics, Damon braces are between £40 and £150 per month, while Invisalign braces start from £110 per month. The practice also has a well-established snore clinic.
