The Inman Aligner: What It Is and How It Works

In the past, people with crooked teeth had only two options. Either they wore traditional braces or lived with their crooked teeth. Nowadays, however, there are more and more options for people who have problems with their teeth. One of them is the Inman Aligner, an incredible, easy and hassle-free way of rearranging crooked teeth.

The device has recently gained popularity because of its advantages over traditional braces.
The Inman Aligner is a clear brace appliance that has become the orthodontic treatment of choice for people who do not want to wear traditional braces. It is a combination of both the traditional and the invisible braces. This remarkable teeth straightening device, which was created and developed by Don Inman, works through a lingual wire or coil spring that exerts considerable pressure on the subject (the teeth that require repositioning) as well as through a sort of labial bar that changes or reverses the action. The coil spring and the labial bar are responsible for squeezing the teeth by means of pulling and pushing such into perfect alignment.

What is good about this device is that it is totally controllable and can easily be adjusted. It can be removed during eating or brushing, or if the patient is experiencing discomfort. It can also be removed during important occasions such as reunions, graduations and the like. For best results, however, the device should be worn most of the time. The more the device is worn, the more quickly the teeth problem/s will get solved. Compared to traditional braces, this device is also very aesthetic. The clear wire, which runs across the front of the teeth, is very thin and almost unnoticeable. More importantly, this device is cheaper than ceramic or invisible braces.

Perhaps the best thing about the Inman Aligner is that compared to traditional braces, it works more quickly and more efficiently. Because of the short treatment period, patients are bound to see results in as early as 6 to 16 weeks. This means that patients do not need to wait for years, even months, to have the smile they wish they could have. This device is available to fix crooked teeth in the fastest, most unfailing way possible.
