An Innovative, Speedy and Removable Brace System

The giddy thrill of a perfected smile, the culmination of several years of work: It is easy to see why, following brace treatment, a patient may forget to wear a retainer. Whether it is purposeful or accidental, not wearing a retainer tends to lead to the same frustrating conclusion – a dental relapse. Thankfully, rather than starting again from scratch, it is now possible, thanks to the Inman Aligner, to receive treatment specifically for a dental relapse. The Inman Aligner is also appropriate for fixing minor issues with your front teeth, regardless of if you have previously received orthodontic treatment.

So what is this Inman Aligner?

It is a removable device, similar to a brace, which aligns your teeth and is particularly appropriate for fixing your front teeth.

The pros of the Inman Aligner

In today’s fast paced, hectic world, nothing is more valuable than time. Thankfully, time is what the Inman Aligner saves. The Inman Aligner will have your teeth in position after six to eighteen weeks, a morsel of a fraction of a fragment of the time which typical fixed brace treatment would take getting the job done. Aside from its ‘quick as a flash’ treatment time, the Inman Aligner also comes with all the advantages typical of removable braces: It can be removed prior to eating, thus preventing the aligner from being affected by hard foods, and it can also be taken out for cleaning purposes, meaning you’ll have no obstructions when brushing; removing the aligner before cleaning will also prevent plaque from building up in hard to reach areas.

Is it suitable for all?

Much as we wish it was, sadly it isn’t. During your initial consultation, we should be able to tell you if you are suitable for treatment with the Inman Aligner.

How it gets the job done

The Inman Aligner contains two nickel titanium coil springs in its makeup, and these then command two aligner bows. These bows lightly go up against each other and accordingly move your teeth to the position you would prefer them to be in. The rapid results arise from the reason that the mild force created by the aligner works over a tremendously large range of movement. For more information about the Inman Aligner why not contact the team at Clifton Dental Studio in the Bristol for more information.  

Discreet Modern Orthodontic Braces

Braces have come a long way in recent years. Today patients are able to benefit from the amazing teeth straightening effects of braces without worrying about visible wires and brackets embarrassing them during treatment. One of the most innovative and popular brace treatments is Invisalign, favoured by celebrities and dentists alike.

What are Invisalign braces?

Invisalign braces are made from clear plastic material and fit over your teeth. Your Invisalign treatment will involve several sets of clear aligners, with a new aligner used every two weeks. Every aligner is slightly different in shape, so gently ease your teeth into their new straighter position. Your aligners will be custom made from impressions of your teeth to ensure that you receive the very best treatment and results from your braces.

What are the main benefits of Invisalign braces?

There are a number of positive benefits of Invisalign treatment, including:
  • Completely clear, so treatment is very discreet
  • Braces are removable, so you can eat and drink normally, as well as being able to clean your teeth properly.
  • Highly effective, yet gentle for easier treatment.
What can Invisalign braces treat? Invisalign can treat a whole range of orthodontic problems, including:
  • Overbites
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Twisted teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
Straight teeth are not only attractive, they also have added health benefits. This is because plaque and dental bacteria are less likely to become trapped between straight teeth. Crooked teeth, however, have crooks and crevices, which are a perfect place for debris and bacteria to hide. This can lead to decay and gum disease, so straighter teeth can actually help maintain the health of your teeth as well as looking attractive.

Why Are Crowded Teeth a Problem?

Crowding is a common orthodontic problem that can often be solved very effectively with braces. If you suffer from overcrowding and are looking for a stress-free solution, we may have just the perfect treatment for you.

Why are crowded teeth problematic?

Crowded teeth can make your smile look unattractive but they can also increase your risk of developing dental diseases. This is because it is often very difficult to clean all the surfaces of the teeth when they are pushed up against each other. If you’re not happy with the look of your smile, it can also affect your confidence, especially when you’re around other people. Dental treatment creates more attractive smiles, boosts confidence and enables you to eat and clean your teeth without any trouble at all.

What can be done for crowded teeth?

Orthodontic treatment is the best course of action for crowded teeth and today there are all kinds of amazing treatments available. Crowding is a common problem that usually results from a lack of space in the jaw. Braces help to reposition the teeth, create more space and align the teeth perfectly. The range of options available to you will depend largely on the severity of the crowding. In minor cases, aligners and fixed braces may be viable, while in complex cases, fixed braces are usually the best option. In some cases of crowding, it might be necessary to remove some of the teeth before the braces are fitted, as this creates space for the teeth to move. Your dentist will go through your options and the treatment processes when you have your consultation.  

Speedy Straightening With Our Orthodontic Wonders!

When it comes to orthodontics, we believe in wonderful smiles and have the best treatments on the market available right here in Bristol. We invest constantly to make sure we offer the newest and most effective treatments and are proud to expand our treatment list on a continual basis to ensure we’re up to date with the latest innovations. If you have crooked, crowded or twisted teeth or are looking for a solution for a misaligned or uneven bite, we are confident that we can find an amazing treatment for you.

The benefits of orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic treatment is designed to benefit those with issues that affect the alignment of the teeth, the relationship between the upper and lower sets of teeth and the jaw joint (this is known as the bite). As well as producing beautiful, straight smiles, orthodontic treatment also helps to increase confidence, improve speech, reduce the risk of oral health problems and improve the overall facial aesthetic. Nowadays, treatments are faster, more discreet and more effective than ever before and there is a wide range of treatment options available to patients of all ages.

Our treatment list boasts fixed braces, removable braces, braces that work incredibly quickly and those that straighten the teeth in secret. If time is of the essence and you want to get that new smile without delay, we have some excellent options. Our speedy systems include:
  • Inman Aligner: a removable aligner ideal for patients with minor issues that affect the front teeth, the Inman Aligner takes just 16 weeks to straighten the teeth.
  • Six Month Smiles: a fixed brace treatment that takes just six months to straighten issues that affect the front teeth. These braces are clear and use the latest technology to prevent pain and enhance comfort.

Incredible Results with the Inman Aligner

If incredible results are what you’re aiming for, you’ve come to the right place. Using amazing, advanced treatments like the Inman Aligner we can create straight smiles and increase your confidence in no time at all. If you have trouble with orthodontic issues such as minor crowding or small gaps between your front teeth, this innovative appliance could be just the ticket.

About the Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a fast-acting and discreet orthodontic appliance that uses gentle forces to reposition the teeth and iron out mild issues involving your front teeth. The aligner works by using forces generated by a metal bar and coiled spring to squeeze the teeth, causing them to move into the desired place. This process is achieved using innovative technology and promises speed and comfort. With the Inman Aligner you don’t just get results quickly, you can also enjoy amazingly discreet aesthetics, as all that can be seen when you smile is the slimline metal bar, which goes across your front teeth. You can also enjoy a very simple treatment process and the added a convenience of a removable brace. With this option, you don’t have to worry about changing the way you eat or brush your teeth, as you simply remove the aligner before you start brushing or your meal arrives on the table. This also means that it’s really easy to keep your aligner clean, promoting good oral health and also allowing you to enjoy meals out without stressing about food getting stuck.

Treatment time

Treatment times are incredibly short and you’ll be taking your braces off for good before you know it. With this amazing appliance you’ll notice a difference after just two weeks or so and most cases are completed fully within four months. Your dentist will discuss treatment times with you during your consultation and they will be able to give you an accurate prediction of how long treatment will take in your individual case. If you think the Inman Aligner sounds appealing, why not call us and book a consultation?

Correcting Crowded Smiles

Crowding is a common orthodontic issue that occurs when there is a lack of room in the jaw. Crowding can result in irregular alignment and overlapping. If your teeth are crowded there’s no need to panic, as we have outstanding orthodontics ready and waiting to help.

About orthodontic treatment

Orthodontics is the area of dentistry concerned with the alignment and positioning of the teeth and the bite. Imperfections, problems with the bite and misalignment are fairly common, but modern treatments are highly effective and they also work faster than ever before, while also offering additional benefits such as discreet aesthetics and enhanced comfort. Treatment usually has noticeable benefits for the look of the smile, but it can also help to boost confidence when speaking, improve the overall facial aesthetic, increase self-esteem and make eating and cleaning the teeth easier.

  • Inman Aligner: this removable brace is a rapid solution for anyone who requires minor correction for problems with the alignment of the front teeth. Treatment is usually complete within 16 weeks.
