You might be thinking of getting your teeth straightened out so that you have a brilliant, healthy looking smile which you can be proud of. This is a common desire but many people are put off by the thought of having to wear an unsightly metal brace for several years. But this is no longer the only way to solve the problem of crooked teeth.
The Inman aligner works far quicker than traditional metal braces. The average time of treatment is just six months. That’s about a quarter of the two years which metal braces usually need to be worn for. Inman aligners are far more discreet as well; they only have one visible part: a single metal bar running across the front teeth. This is infinitely preferable to the metal brackets and wires of their traditional counterparts, especially for teenagers.
An Inman aligner is completely removable, which makes the issue of oral hygiene during treatment a far more manageable proposition. No longer will patients who want their teeth straightened have to endure food being trapped amongst all the metal workings. You can just remove an Inman aligner after a meal and give it and your teeth a thorough clean.
Inman aligners work using the power of a coiled spring which pushes the teeth against the bar which is front of your front teeth. This process is ideal for small alignment issues but cannot be used to rotate teeth. With the cost of an Inman aligner roughly the same as most other orthodontic treatments you might find that it is the answer to your nagging questions about how to straighten your teeth without wearing a traditional brace.
