Articles Ground-Breaking Orthodontics with the Inman Aligner
At Harley Street Dental Studio we like to move with the times and are delighted to offer the innovative Inman Aligner right here in Central London. This highly effective, rapid treatment is an excellent alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients with orthodontic problems that affect the front teeth.
What is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance geared towards patients who have issues with the front teeth. The aligner uses forces generated by its two main parts, a coiled spring and a metal bar, to straighten the teeth very quickly. An aligner is different to traditional braces because it slides into position over the teeth and is removable, rather than being secured onto the teeth. There are no brackets and wires and all that can be seen when you smile is a very thin metal bar.
How does the Inman Aligner work?
The Inman Aligner is designed to create forces that push and pull, squeezing the teeth and causing them to move in the desired direction. These forces are created by a coiled spring at the back of the teeth and a metal bar along the front. The pressure is sufficient to move the teeth quickly without causing any discomfort.
Is the Inman Aligner suitable for me?
The Inman Aligner is ideally suited to patients who need minor correction on the front teeth and it can be a useful, speedy solution for issues like slightly crooked front teeth, a gap between the teeth or minor crowding. This treatment is not generally recommended for patients who need intensive treatment, but it can be a good choice for patients who have had treatment already as a means of treating relapse.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for the Inman Aligner, simply give our friendly receptionists a call today and book your consultation. Your Harley Street dentist will examine your mouth and assess your needs to determine if this system is a viable option and if it isn’t, they will be happy to look at other options with you to find the perfect treatment.
