When people look at your smile, the first thing they’ll notice is your front teeth. Crooked or misaligned front teeth can cause the whole appearance of your smile to suffer, as well as other functions such as your speaking and eating action. Inman Aligners are specifically designed to provide comfortable, subtle and effective treatment for this issue.
Inman Aligners are one of the most effective orthodontic treatments on the market – straightening teeth much faster, and with more comfort, than other dental appliances. Depending on the severity of crookedness and/or misalignment, results can be seen in as little as six weeks to sixteen months.
An Inman Aligner works via a coil spring which is attached to a clear plastic front bar which rests on the front teeth and straightens them into place. They are less invasive than other orthodontic options, which causes less irritation to the teeth, gums and surrounding tissues. They can also be removed before you eat and when you brush your teeth.
We will invite you to an initial assessment appointment to see if your case of misalignment and/or crookedness is suited to Inman Aligner treatment. If so, we will take an impression of your mouth using a ‘dental putty’, this will be sent to a dental lab where your own customised Inman Aligner will be made.
Once we have received your Inman Aligner, you will return for a fitting appointment. This is a fairly simple procedure which involves attaching the back-support wires into place around your teeth. Then showing how you can remove the appliance to eat, brush your teeth and clean the aligner itself. We will invite you back for check-ups every two to three weeks during your alignment treatment. Most cases will be corrected by an Inman Aligner in five months.
Inman Aligners are a fantastic option for those people that want a comfortable and effective way to treat misalignment and/or crookedness in your front teeth. As well as benefiting the appearance of your smile, undergoing this treatment has other benefits, including:
- Improving biting function
- Improving speak function
- Aiding dental hygiene
- Preventing complications with surrounding teeth
When worn properly and for the advised amount of time (around twenty hours a day), an Inman Aligner is the quickest and easiest way to treat misaligned teeth.
