How You Can Benefit from Removable Braces

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

header_image4There has been a significant increase in the popularity of adult orthodontic treatment in recent years and one major contributing factor is the introduction of a range of impressive removable braces. For many, removable braces offer solutions to issues encountered by orthodontic patients in the past and give them greater freedom during treatment. At City Dental Leeds, we’re delighted to offer some of the world’s leading removable brace treatments:

  • Inman Aligner
  • Invisalign

The benefits of removable braces

Braces have changed a lot over the last decade or so and if you still imagine painful and cumbersome metal train-tracks when somebody mentions braces, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Today, fixed and removable braces offer a range of benefits for both teenage and adult patients and you can get the smile you’ve always dreamed of with minimal hassle or discomfort.

Removable braces are a very popular choice because they offer:

  • discretion
  • flexibility
  • convenience

The Inman Aligner is a removable aligner and features a very fine metal bar and a coiled spring located behind the front teeth. Designed for patients with minor needs, this brace takes just 16 weeks to straighten the teeth and affords you the luxury of being able to eat and clean your teeth normally. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible as they are made from clear plastic. Treatment involves wearing a series of specially designed appliances in sequence and usually takes around 6-18 months.

Removable braces enable you to get on with life as normal. You can take your braces out when you eat, so you can enjoy a wide range of foods without any worries about getting food trapped in your braces and you can clean your teeth in exactly the same way, so you won’t have any greater risk of dental disease.

If you like the sound of removable braces, why not give us a call today and find out more?

3492515_blogFancy having your buck front teeth, yes the teeth that have always annoyed you all of your life straightened for once and for ever?

Yes, this device is that good: its cute little mechanism loosens your teeth up with a rocking motion and then hauls them into place extremely quickly. Such speed of movement will mean you have to wear some form of retainer after in order to stop the teeth from springing back again, but this is short change considering that you have finally got your teeth sorted out after all these years.

It’s in and it’s out! The Inman Aligner puts the X-factor into Central Leeds

18625044It may seem a strange thing to say, but the world of teeth straightening is a pretty place right now; there are some amazing devices you can get to straighten your teeth with in central Leeds right now. Some will take their time, others will work faster; some are discreet, some not so. But there is one aligner that stands out for just its sheer audacity and brashness- the Inman. Now this is really something: it only works on your front teeth, due to its complex, yet brilliant design, but it promises to give you results as quickly as 6 weeks. The mechanism literally keeps your teeth loose, hence they rapidly move into position, because they are being rocked constantly by a spring activated bar and wire. Throughout the treatment you have the luxury of being able to remove it, so cleaning isn’t an issue at all. Of course, such quick work means that your are lumbered with a retainer for some time after because the teeth have a tendency to spring back; this however can be worn whenever you want and besides, this is a mere tiny inconvenience considering how fast you can get your teeth finally where you have always wanted them to be.


The Inman Aligner and the City of Leeds go Hand in Hand

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

This is an innovative dental appliance, which straightens teeth extremely quickly. The device is made from a metal bar and a coiled spring – the forces generated by the parts cause the teeth to move into position. It is a removable appliance, which is designed to treat problems that affect the teeth at the front of the mouth.

How does it push and pull teeth into place?

The Inman aligner works by generating forces, which effectively pull and push the teeth into the perfect position. The coiled spring and metal bar produce the forces and the aligner uses up to date techniques to ensure that the teeth move quickly and painlessly.

How are results achieved?

This is amongst the most effective and quickest forms of orthodontic treatment currently available at the dentist. Treatment time varies according to the individual but treatment is often finished within 4 months and advances are visible in a few weeks.

Am I a suitable candidate?

If you live in City of Leeds and you have orthodontic issues and want a straighter smile, give us a call to arrange a consultation. The aligner is designed to treat minor problems that affect the teeth at the front of the mouth. The Inman Aligner is a very effective treatment, but it is not suitable for everyone. If you are not a suitable candidate for Inman aligner treatment, we can recommend alternative treatments.

The Dynamic Inman Aligner Hits the City of Leeds

Monday, March 19th, 2012

There are quite a few dynamic braces on the market in the city of Leeds, which offer both speed and discretion while they straighten your smile. Some are removable, some are fixed, but there is a brace that combines the the best of both-the Inman Aligner.

The Inman Aligner places opposing forces on your teeth, pushing from the inside and pulling from the outside, gently yet effectively squeezing your teeth into position. Keeping the teeth in constant movement means that they move very fast, 6 weeks fast at best, after which time you will need to wear a retainer to maintain your beautiful new smile.

Being removable means it is incredibly easy to keep the aligner clean and you can keep up a high level of oral hygiene throughout the treatment. You can also take the aligner our for more intimate or social occasions, but the outside wire is barely noticeable anyway.

As costs go, it comes in at a very considerable price, providing the results of other braces for a fraction of the cost, as it only uses one aligner to achieve straighter smiles. It does come with a bit of a catch however; purely because of its design, it can only work on teeth at the front of the mouth, but if that’s fine with you, get out there and get one fitted today!
