Braces can be tricky, especially for those wanting straighter teeth during adulthood. Train track braces are effective, but there is no way to hide the fact that you are wearing them. Recently, however, several kinds of invisible braces have burst on to the market and they’re changing the way we think about braces. The Inman Aligner, for example, is quick, effective and super discreet.
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner works using springs that are carefully engineered to put the right amount of pressure on your teeth. They push behind the teeth, while a clear wire holds the teeth in place from the front. This moves them into place quickly and precisely.
What are the advantages?
Because the brace is designed especially for you, the springs are engineered to apply optimum, continuous force to the teeth. Traditional braces need to be tightened every so often, and other kinds of invisible braces need to be replaced every couple of weeks. The Inman Aligner is constantly exerting pressure on the teeth, therefore it works all day, every day. This means that treatment can be completed in a matter of weeks (typically 12-18) rather than years.
Where possible the Inman Aligner is made of clear materials, so it’s practically invisible. People don’t need to know you’re having your teeth straightened unless you tell them so – which Bristol serving dentists believe make it an excellent choice!
Due to its retainer-like design, the Inman Aligner can be removed whenever you like. It should be removed when you’re eating or cleaning your teeth, but it can also be taken out for special occasions, such as family photographs or an important meeting. It is important to note that spending too much time without the retainer will impair its effectiveness and it should ideally be worn for at least 20 hours per day.
Are there any disadvantages?
During the first few days you may experience some mild discomfort as the braces begin moving your teeth. You may also develop a slight lisp, but this too is temporary. All things considered, the advantages of this treatment greatly outweigh the temporary disadvantages.
