Here at Simply Teeth in Essex, braces are changing. We are proud to introduce the Inman Aligner to our procedure options. The Inman Aligner is an alternative to modern invisible braces in Essex.
The Inman Aligner will allow you to achieve great results using just one appliance. It has been specifically designed to give you a wonderful smile with less hassle and expense in a shorter period, when compared to traditional fixed metal braces.
It can also be removed and inserted as a retainer, making huge improvements to your dental health when compared to traditional metal braces.
As you get older, your teeth may tend to shift sometimes, which can cause your front top and bottom teeth to become crooked. At first glance, you must think you need fixed metal braces however, with the patented Inman Aligner your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position quickly and effectively in just a matter of weeks, not the years that may brace wearers may have experienced in the past.
This can occasionally happen to adults who have had braces when they were younger. The most common result is some overcrowding or rotations of front teeth.
Can the Inman Aligner be compared to Invisalign?
Invisalign braces in Essex are made of a specialised plastic, thus the forces are low and the treatment times can be a bit longer. The Inman Aligner incorporates tiny nickel titanium springs that can maintain a higher constant tension. The Inman Aligner is used mainly for treating front teeth only and may not suitable for all our patients. The treatment time with the Inman Aligner is usually faster than clear braces, so could provide a viable alternative to other modern braces in Essex.
Will it be painful?
Due to the gentle but steady forces generated, the Inman Aligner can be easily tolerated in your mouth. We sometimes recommend that patients take some mild pain killers for the first few days while you adjust.
Will the Inman Aligner affect my speech?
The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will however adjust to the appliance over time and be able to speak normally with them in place.
