Did you miss out on orthodontics when you were younger? Perhaps you had your teeth straightened but they have gone back to how they work for? Then if it is your front teeth which are crooked then why not join the many other patients that have enjoyed straighter teeth in North London with the Inman aligner.
How does the Inman aligner work?
All teeth move on the same basic principle that if we apply pressure in a particular area then the tooth will have a tendency to move. The Inman aligner is a radical new way of moving teeth as the inventor has found a way to apply pressure in two directions. The orthodontic brace has an innovative double spring mechanism that allows it to pull and push in different directions at the same time.
Suppose your teeth are rotated, and one part of your tooth is sticking out under another part of your tooth is in. The Inman aligner is able to push from one side and pull from the other enabling the tooth to be straightened much faster then conventional orthodontic treatments.
The Inman aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance and as such you need to ensure that you wear the Inman aligner for at least 20 hours per day. Only removing it to eat your meals and to clean it at night.
Is the Inman aligner invisible?
There is no such thing as a totally invisible brace, some braces such as Invisalign are almost invisible and due to the way the Inman aligner is constructed it is far less visible than conventional removable orthodontics or traditional train track braces. However, it is not quite as invisible as Invisalign.
How long does the treatment take?
It rather depends upon the exact amount that your teeth need to be rotated by, however a good estimate is around 12 weeks, although sometimes it is shorter and often it is more than this. Only by doing a detailed examination of your exact tooth positions and ideally where we want them to move to is it possible to work out exactly how long the Inman aligner treatment will take in your case.
