Lister House in Harlow Offers Modern Orthodontics including Invisalign
Short-term orthodontics is an advanced technique, which uses clear brackets and almost invisible wires or clear plastic retainers, depending on the individual case, to gently move misaligned teeth to their desired position.
The appliances themselves are almost invisible, meaning that this is a perfect treatment to correct slight overcrowding, or for those who have previously had orthodontic treatment but whose teeth have moved back over time. Best of all, short-term ortho is usually completed in around 6 months, depending on the case - around a third of the time taken for traditional orthodontic treatment.
Short-term orthodontics is not appropriate for everyone, which is why we assess each patient individually to see if you are suitable. During this assessment we will discuss which options are best for your orthodontic needs.
Invisalign is invisible, removable and comfortable and is one of the most discreet orthodontic treatment options available today. It works by using a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that no one will be able to tell you’re wearing. That’s because the clear plastic material they are made out of is virtually invisible.
The aligners are custom made for your teeth from an impression we’ll take at your initial consultation. Each set of aligners must then be worn for approximately two-to-three weeks. After each two-to-three-week period we’ll give you the next set. Each set of aligners builds on the work the previous set has done to gently bring your teeth into their new, straighter position.
