The field of orthodontics has seen many advances over the past few years, one of the most important being discreet and invisible braces. Orthodontic treatment choices in the past have been limited, and fixed braces haven’t always been the most aesthetically pleasing accessory. Patients now have a much wider range of choices when it comes to braces. One of the most impressive options is invisible braces, which allow patients to undergo orthodontic treatment without people even knowing it!
Invisalign allows patients to get a stunning smile without people even realising they’re wearing braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are invisible when placed over the teeth. The aligners work in a specific order, and are to be changed every 2 weeks. Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that tooth-brushing and eating and drinking is made much easier.
The Inman Aligner
This is another impressive removable brace. Not strictly invisible, the Inman Aligner is a lot more discreet than a traditional fixed brace. There are two main components with the Inman Aligner, which work to create force and pressure to move the teeth into the desired position. The components are a spring (located at the back of the teeth) and a metal bar (located at the back of the teeth). The bar is very thin and fine so it is discreet in the mouth. The treatment time of the Inman Aligner is typically faster than other brace systems, with most cases being completed in as little as 16 weeks!

Imagine being able to enjoy a beautiful, straight smile in a matter of weeks without suffering any pain. With the Inman Aligner, this dream has become a reality and patients are able to see the results of treatment in just 8-16 weeks.
What is the Inman Aligner?
If you thought you had to wait months, even years for a straight smile, prepare to be amazed by the Inman Aligner. This removable appliance was developed in the USA and has become a great success around the world. It is made from a spring, which is located at the back of the teeth, and a metal bar, which runs across the front teeth. These parts produce forces that push and pull the teeth, gently squeezing them into position and correcting alignment issues.
The Inman Aligner is a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who do not require intensive treatment. This system focuses on the front teeth and is specifically designed to deal with minor issues, such as mild crowding and small gaps between the front teeth.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment time is the major selling-point of the Inman Aligner and the speed of treatment is so rapid that before you know it, you’ll be having your brace removed. Patients tend to start noticing a difference after just a couple of weeks and within 16 weeks almost all cases are complete.
How could the Inman Aligner benefit me?
If you are searching for an orthodontic solution for minor issues, offering comfort, convenience, speed and discreet aesthetics, look no further than the Inman Aligner. The treatment works incredibly quickly with minimum disruption to your day to day life and reduced pain. This brace gives you the freedom to brush your teeth in the normal way and enjoy eating without any panic about getting bits of spinach or herbs stuck in your teeth and the metal bar is very fine, so the brace is hardly noticeable.
The Inman Aligner can also be very beneficial for patients who have already had treatment in the past as a means of treating relapse.

One of the most important advances in the field of orthodontics is the introduction of discreet braces. For many years, patients who needed orthodontic treatment had a very limited choice, and fixed braces, although extremely effective, are not the most aesthetically pleasing accessory. Now, patients have a much wider range of options, including a host of impressive invisible brace treatments. These innovations allow patients to enjoy all the benefits of treatment with the added bonus of improved aesthetics during treatment.
Marketed as an invisible brace system, Invisalign enables patients to get a beautiful smile without anyone being able to spot that they are wearing braces. Rather than using a traditional brace, Invisalign employs a sequence of clear aligners, which are impossible to see when they are placed over the top of the teeth. These aligners are similar to a very light and delicate version of a mouth guard and they work in a particular order, each one in place for 2 weeks. Invisalign aligners can be taken out, which makes tooth-brushing and eating much easier and less stressful than with fixed braces.
The Inman Aligner
The Inman Aligner is another impressive removable brace and although it is not strictly invisible, as with Invisalign aligners, it is much more discreet than a traditional fixed brace. With the Inman Aligner, there are two main components, which are responsible for creating force and pressure to move the teeth; these include a spring, which sits at the back of the teeth and a metal bar, which is located at the front of the teeth. The bar is visible, but it is very fine and thin and treatment time is so short that most people are willing to make the compromise with the aesthetics. Most cases are complete within just 16 weeks.

Have you ever considered undergoing orthodontic treatment, but been put off by the stigma attached to braces? If this is the case and you long for straight teeth, allow us to introduce you to Invisalign, an invisible aligner treatment, which offers the opportunity to enjoy a perfectly aligned smile without any of the stress associated with visible braces. Invisalign is a popular treatment for teenagers and adults who are looking for a more discreet alternative to traditional braces.
The ins and outs of Invisalign
Invisalign offers an alternative to normal braces and it uses a different approach to treatment. Rather than utilising a fixed appliance, Invisalign employs a series of clear aligners to force the teeth into position. Each aligner is bespoke and the appliances work in a set order. The aligners are worn for 2 weeks and then replaced.
Invisalign aligners do not look anything like normal fixed braces; they are made to fit over the top of your teeth in a similar way to a gum shield worn for sport and they are completely clear. The aim of treatment is to straighten the teeth with optimum aesthetics, comfort and convenience.
Most people choose Invisalign because the aligners are virtually invisible and this means that life doesn’t have to change much once treatment has started; you don’t need to worry about what people will think or about how you look. You can also eat and brush your teeth in the normal way, as the aligners can be taken out and popped back in very quickly and easily.
Aligners are light and they don’t have any troublesome bands or ties, which can be very painful.
Invisalign is suitable for many orthodontic patients and it can be utilised to correct a variety of issues, from mild crowding to gaps between the teeth.

If you are suffering from imperfect teeth and want a fast and effective braces solution, we have just the thing for you; 6 Month Braces. 6 Month Braces are used at Clifton Dental of Bristol for patients needing help to straighten the teeth that are on show when you smile. As the braces work on just the front teeth rather than more intricate issues on an entire arch, they are able to straighten the teeth much faster than traditional braces. Although 6 Month Braces are fixed braces, the bracket and wiring are tooth-coloured so they look very discreet when speaking, smiling and chatting. The wiring is made using nickel titanium and a fast treatment time is not due to constant tightening of the wiring, but because only a small number of teeth are being treated. Patients can often gain the results they wanted in just six months, but it very much depends on each patient’s orthodontic situation. 6 Month Braces is a fantastic solution for those wanting to straighten the teeth at the front of the mouth quickly and discreetly. Contact us near Swindon for a 6 Month Braces consultation.

Braces can put the wind up you when you find out that they need to be fitted in order to re-align your teeth. However, going through this treatment will ensure the future of your oral health, as well as keeping your smile pretty of course. But before you jump in the deep end and take the first option offered to you, shop around beforehand and do a little research on what the market has to offer you. The world of orthodontics has really got its game up to scratch over the past few years and there are some seriously good gadgets around to choose from. Modern aligners are quite breath-taking; they work fast, are removable during your treatment and you (and others) will barely notice them in the mouth. Fixed braces are the more traditional image that people have of getting their teeth straightened, but work for more complex issues in the mouth, though even these have gone through a renaissance, using more subtle materials and they can also work fast for you as well. If you live in Bristol, then pop along and talk to Clifton Dental- they can tell you about all the wonderful devices on the market today.
