Orthodontics is advancing at lightening speed and one of the most noticeable differences between modern treatments and those used in previous decades is treatment time. With new treatments, patients can enjoy results faster than ever before and we are delighted to offer rapid solutions for orthodontic issues, including the Inman Aligner.
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic device, which uses forces, which are created by a coiled spring and a metal bar, to squeeze the teeth and move them into the correct position. The aligner is not like fixed braces because it sits on top of the teeth and it is taken out when you eat and clean your teeth.
What are the pros and cons of the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is one of the quickest treatments available, producing amazing results in just 16 weeks. It is also comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and convenient. Many patients like the idea of a removable brace because it gives them more freedom and they can enjoy eating and clean their teeth without any hassle. Removable braces tend to be better for oral health because they are easier to clean and you can brush your teeth much more thoroughly than with fixed braces; there are also no bands or brackets to trap food. As treatment is so simple and quick, this appliance also represents good value for money. The Inman Aligner can also be used for patients who have already worn braces in the past as a means of combating relapse.
The only real downside of the Inman Aligner is the fact that it is limited in terms of versatility. This treatment is designed specifically for patients with minor issues that affect the teeth at the front of the mouth and is therefore not a viable option for patients with more complex needs.
