The Inman Aligner could be the ideal way for you, as an adult, to align your teeth. It is hard to see since it is made of a single, clear wire. The orthodontic appliance is removable, too. This allows you to take it out when you want to be without braces, such as for an important occasion. We regularly encourage our adult patients to use the Inman Aligner for its versatility and key benefits.
The Benefits of the Inman Aligner
The Inman Aligner offers numerous benefits to users, including:
- Correction of moderate crowding of teeth
- Correction of rotating teeth
- Comfortable fit easier to wear than other bracing products
- No retention problems
- Less hassle than other products
- Less expensive
- You just need one appliance to get the job done.
How It Works?
The Inman Aligner is made of nickel titanium instead of stainless steel. This allows it to feel better in your mouth than other products. It has a lingual coil spring in the design. This spring adds just enough pressure to the back of the teeth slowly to reposition them into place. A bar is placed at the front of the teeth for additional pressure. They work together to squeeze the teeth into alignment.
What Can You Expect?
This procedure takes about two, 30-minum appointments and then a 15-minute check-up every month. Overall, you can expect to see results in 6 to 16 weeks.
This is not a new procedure as it has been in use since 2000. In the United States, about 450 to 500 patients receive these appliances monthly.
The procedure does not hurt, though some individuals take mild painkillers for the first week or two. You may notice that your mouth is salivating more than normal and your speech could seem a little different until you get used to the appliance. This takes about a week to ten days.
