Teeth have a tendency to shift sometimes, causing upper and lower front teeth to become crooked, explains Surrey dentist Dr Soltani. This usually happens to adults who had orthodontic treatment when they were young. In these situations, people tend to consider braces first to correct the misalignment. However, with the revolutionary Inman aligners (made of a specialised plastic) mild misalignment of the front teeth can be corrected within a short time. Most Inman aligner treatments are completed within 6-12 weeks, faster than alternative orthodontic techniques such as Invisalign or fixed braces.
The Inman Aligner applies a gentle pressure to the teeth that need to be shifted. The orthodontic force is provided by the spring action of the appliance. The appliance is removable, but it is recommended that you wear the appliance for at least 16 to 20 hours each day. You will see a quicker result if you wear it for a longer number of hours.
The Inman aligner advantage:
- With just one main appliance you can achieve great results
- They are less expensive and take a shorter time in comparison with other appliances to create an aligned, beautiful smile
- Can be easily removed and inserted
