If you have a problem with your teeth, it doesn’t often take that long to rectify; most treatments are over and done with very quickly and that’s what everyone wants in Kingston-upon-Thames-a quick fix. That is not often the case with orthodontic treatments though, well, it wasn’t until the Inman aligner strolled into town, for this device throws defiance at the orthodontic rule book. It seems impossible to say, but this device can have your teeth straightened in as little as 6 weeks, yes, 6 weeks! And afterwards you will have to wear a retainer for a while, just to ensure the teeth bed in and stay put. The shape and design of the Inman dictates that it can only work on the front upper teeth, so if you fall into this category, you are very lucky indeed. It is a plate that has two springs either side at the back; attached to these is a bar that presses up against the inside of the teeth, and also a wire, that wraps itself around the outside of the teeth and these work against each other when it is fitted into place. In layman’s terms, the device pushes the teeth back and forth, loosening them up before pulling them into position. It is this constant movement, day and night, that moves the teeth so rapidly. The other joy of this aligner is that is removable, so you have no problem brushing your teeth after a meal. If this has wetted your appetite, then get on the phone to Mulberry Dental Care from Surrey-they serve the town and for around £1200-£1500, it has surely got to be worth a punt?
