Are Your Teeth Only Slightly Crooked? Ask Us about the Inman Aligner
Are your front teeth only slightly out of alignment? Perhaps they are crooked, a bit protrusive or may be rotated? While it might be nice to use orthodontics in Ladbroke Grove to straighten up, wearing fixed braces for months on end can seem a bit excessive. This is where the Inman Aligner can help as it’s what’s called a cosmetic brace which means it concentrates on straightening only the front teeth that you can see whenever you smile or talk.
It can be an ideal solution for people with only slightly wonky teeth and who really don’t need a tremendous amount of orthodontic care. Although another option would be to choose porcelain veneers to straighten these teeth, using a brace can be a less invasive solution as most times porcelain veneers require the removal of a tiny amount of tooth structure that afterwards can only be replaced artificially. With the use of the Inman Aligner, you’ll be preserving as much healthy tooth structure as possible which is something you’ll find our dentist in Ladbroke Grove is always keen to do.
What Is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a removable brace that mainly consists of two aligner bows that are made from very thin metal and which are attached to an acrylic plate that fits inside the mouth so it cannot be seen. Each aligner bow is powered by titanium nickel springs and one bow fits inside the teeth while the other bow fits on the outside surfaces of the teeth. The springs that power these bows create a squeezing action, gently but firmly moving the teeth into the correct alignment. Treatment can often be completed within just a few weeks or months which makes the system not only very popular but also very affordable.
The Inman Aligner is super easy to use as you’ll be able to remove it whenever you want to eat something so there is no need to worry about pieces of food getting trapped around your brace. This means there is no need to avoid certain very hard or sticky foods during treatment as you’ll be able to carry on eating normally. The fact that it’s removable also makes it very easy to maintain good dental health as you’ll be able to brush and floss as always.
Who Can Have the Inman Aligner?
This type of brace is only suitable for mild orthodontic problems so the best way to find out for sure if it might be suitable for you is to book an appointment with our dentist. A proper assessment of your teeth and jaws will determine if this particular brace will produce good results. Otherwise we can recommend the use of an alternative brace in Ladbroke Grove that will produce the kind of results you desire. We are sure you have lots of questions about orthodontics and we’d be happy to answer these when you come in for a consultation at Ladbroke Grove Dental Care.
