Inman Aligner™ at Parramatta Dental Clinic
Did you know that it’s possible to straighten your smile without having to wear braces? Inman Aligners are an orthodontic system that uses an appliance similar to a retainer. It’s focused on the front teeth, aligning the visible part of your smile in just a few months.
Is an Inman Aligner Right for You?
Since tooth alignment treatments are different for everyone, we’ll need to evaluate your smile first. If your mouth is healthy but there are a few teeth you need to straighten at the front of your mouth, then you may qualify for an Inman Aligner.
We can take an impression at the time of your evaluation to order your custom appliance. The orthodontic mouthpiece will be ready within just a couple of weeks. Most people start to notice a difference in about a month.
If you’re considering short term orthodontics like FastBraces, but you don’t want fixed appliances, then an Inman Aligner might be right for you.
How Does an Inman Aligner Work?
Since Inman Aligners aren’t braces, they work different than most orthodontic treatments. The removable mouthpiece applies even pressure across the front teeth, encouraging them to rotate into an aligned curve.
As teeth move, the appliance is adjusted and the pressure is changed. The only difference is that instead of brackets and wires, Inman Aligners use thin acrylic guides to reposition teeth.
As a short-term orthodontic alternative, Inman Aligners are ideal for cosmetic concerns associated with crooked teeth. They’re also removable, making them convenient to care for and live with on a day-to-day basis.
Advantages of Straighter Teeth
As an adult, choosing to straighten your smile with an Inman Aligner can have perks like:
• Feeling confident about your appearance
• Healthier looking teeth
• Close up gaps in your smile
• Preventing abnormal tooth wear
• Fewer and shorter appointments
• Fast treatment times
• Lower risk of dental emergencies
Since tooth alignment varies in severity, we’ll need to evaluate your smile to determine that a short-term appliance is appropriate. After we assess your teeth, we’ll know which orthodontic treatments you qualify for and discuss the pros and cons of each. From there, you’ll have all of the information you need to make a decision about your smile’s needs.
