Quick, Simple Straightening with the Inman Aligner

Friday, June 10th, 2016

386703_blogLeeds dentists straighten teeth quickly and effectively with the Inman Aligner

For many years, lots of people have benefited from the straightened teeth offered by braces.  However, although they are extremely effective, braces are not without problems for the wearer.  Firstly, they often need to be worn for as long as three years.  That’s three years with a mouth full of metal that is visible every time you smile! This can be especially troubling for those who find social situations difficult anyway.

The Inman Aligner can straighten teeth just as effectively as traditional braces, but eliminate the two problems identified above. The Inman Aligner works incredibly quickly. With an average treatment time of less than six months, some patients complete the treatment in just six weeks. What’s more, the device is completely removable, which makes it much easier to clean.

This brace is also very discreet. The only visible part is a thin straightening bar running across the front teeth.  The rest of the working parts of the Inman Aligner are out of view.  It works work by using the power of a coiled spring to push teeth against the straightening bar.

Despite the extra speed and convenience of being able to remove it, the Inman Aligner is not an expensive option. In fact it costs roughly the same as most other, similar orthodontic treatments.  It is worth bearing in mind though that the Inman Aligner is not suitable for rotating teeth.

How Quickly Can I Get a Straight Smile?

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

2445507_blogTime is a luxury for many people these days and patients who are interested in orthodontic treatment want to know how long treatment will take and how fast they can expect results. The good news is that today’s treatments are speedier than ever before and you can now enjoy a beautiful smile in a matter of weeks or months, rather than years. We are proud to offer some incredibly quick solutions and we look forward to working with you to achieve that perfect result in no time at all!

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

It’s very hard to put a blanket figure on treatment time when it comes to orthodontics because individual prescriptions can vary hugely. Some patients only need minor correction, while others need very complex and intensive treatment that  involves significant tooth movement. Some cases may be complete in weeks, while others may take more than a year. When you have your consultation, your dentist will assess your needs and analyse your bite and they will then be able to give you an idea of anticipated treatment times.

The treatment you choose will also have a bearing on the time-frame. Some treatments work faster than others. Examples of rapid solutions we offer include:

  • Six Month Smiles: this fixed brace treatment is an ideal solution for patients who need minor or moderate levels of correction for issues that affect the teeth seen when you smile. The discreet braces use the latest friction-free technology to move the teeth quickly and focus solely on the front teeth. Treatment, as you may have guessed, is usually complete within six months.
  • Inman Aligner: one of the fastest treatments around, the Inman Aligner offers an amazing option for patients who only need minor correction. This removable device uses powerful but gentle forces to move and align the teeth rapidly, with an average treatment time of just 16 weeks. The aligner is not invisible, but it is much less noticeable than traditional fixed braces.
  • STb Social 6 braces: geared toward patients with minor orthodontic issues with the ‘social 6’ (the front six teeth on the top and bottom arches), this invisible treatment is the perfect solution for those who would rather keep their treatment a secret. Lingual braces are fixed to the back of the teeth, so you can’t see them when you smile. These braces work very quickly to achieve results in just three to six months.
  • Damon Braces: a suitable choice for patients who need more movement and treatment for more complex issues, Damon Braces are a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces. They produce results around four to six months faster than traditional braces and they are also much more discreet.

The benefits of braces

Braces are a popular treatment for issues that affect the alignment of the upper and lower teeth and positioning of the teeth. They straighten the teeth and correct misalignment by generating forces that apply pressure to the teeth.

Braces improve the function of the teeth, as well as reducing the risk of oral health problems, improving speech and creating more attractive smiles. In many cases, people who have orthodontic treatment struggle with low confidence when it comes to their smile and treatment can really help to make a difference to the way they feel about how they look.

All the Ins and Outs of an Inman Aligner

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

3943593_blogThe Inman Aligner is one of our most exciting treatments and it presents a really impressive alternative to both fixed braces and clear aligners. This innovative appliance offers convenience, speed and discretion and it could be the perfect choice for you if you suffer from minor problems with your front teeth.

What exactly is the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance that has been described as a hybrid between fixed braces and invisible aligners. This device, which was pioneered in the USA, offers a simple and incredibly quick alternative to other aligner treatments and traditional fixed braces, offering you the chance to enjoy a stunning new smile in just 16 weeks.

There are two main components in this aligner: a coiled spring and a metal bar. The metal bar sits on the front teeth and it is visible. However, it is very thin and this is a much more discreet option than fixed braces. The spring sits behind the front teeth and the two parts work together to create forces that push and pull the teeth, squeezing them and causing them to move.

Who is the ideal candidate for the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is not a universal treatment, as the amount of movement it produces is limited and it focuses on the front teeth. However, it is an excellent choice for patients who have minor alignment issues that involve the teeth at the front of the mouth. If you have slightly crooked front teeth, you suffer with mild crowding or you have a minor case of overjet, this could be an ideal choice. Treatment is usually complete within 4 months, the removable appliance offers greater freedom and the treatment process is incredibly simple. We can also recommend this treatment for cases of relapse.
