Teeth straightening with Inman aligner from Kingston-upon-Thames dentist

The Inman aligner is the one of latest in a long line of orthodontic teeth straightening devices that offers vastly improved treatment to the old fashioned fixed metal braces. To any teenager facing the concept of having braces, the old style ‘train-track’ metal braces could seem quite a formidable sacrifice to have to make. Treatment could last up to three years and the bulky wire and bracket system that affected the change was uncomfortable and required regular painful tightening. And the obvious disadvantage was that they didn’t exactly look all that great aesthetically.

This is where the Inman aligner has offered a genuine alternative. Not only is the aligner discreet, with the bulk of the straightening materials, notably the coiled spring that gives it its straightening power, located on the tongue side of the teeth but only a small and very discreet wire can be seen running along the front of the teeth. This gives the Inman aligner a huge advantage over traditional braces aesthetically.

The Inman aligner also straightens teeth much quicker than most other braces. Incredibly, in some cases, results can be seen in as little as six weeks, although the average time of treatment is about six months. This is a significant improvement, especially for patients in their teens when three years can seem like an eternity.

The Inman aligner is also completely removable, which is good for patients who play sport or who have regular social occasions they do not want to wear braces for. In fact, because of all these advantages many people are choosing to use the Inman aligner to straighten teeth before important social occasions like wedding or starting new jobs.
