Many people are becoming more aware of how they can improve their appearance by enhancing their smiles with cosmetic dentistry. Makeover programmes promise great results using fast cosmetic dentistry, delivering bright white smiles through whitening and porcelain laminate technology.
These type of TV makeovers have led to an increased demand for elective treatment, with some people choosing to have irreversible procedures done. However great results can be achieved by a less invasive, simple removable appliance known as an INMANALIGNERTM, which has changed the orthodontic alternative choices given to a person considering treatments like veneers.
The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening front teeth. It is a custom orthodontic appliance that makes use of high tech materials to generate comfortable, continuous orthodontic force. It can efficiently straighten front teeth.
In the past anyone with crooked teeth has only had a few choices. Fixed braces and clear braces, both of which work well but are slow and can also be costly.
Also, many people choose to have porcelain veneers instead. This often involves heavy grinding of the teeth to get them into the right position first. As a result many patients choose to do nothing and just live with it. Even if veneers are absolutely necessary because the teeth are so discoloured and misshapen, the Inman Aligner is the perfect way to align the teeth first quickly before the veneers are prepared.
The Inman Aligner works quickly and efficiently, so front teeth can now be straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks instead of having brackets stuck to the teeth or waiting months and months for a clear brace to work.
Inman Aligner treatment typically takes 6-16 weeks. Simple cases can complete in a little over 1 month and more complex cases might take 4 months or so. Normally lower front teeth move a little faster than uppers. This is what makes the Inman Aligner so revolutionary and moves it into the realms of cutting edge cosmetic dentistry.
As well as being quicker and more expensive than traditional braces or invisible braces, the cost of Inman Aligner treatment is typically much less expensive than these traditional solutions. The cost of treatment may vary depending on the number of visits required and complexity of the case.
What Is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a custom orthodontic appliance that generates comfortable, continuous orthodontic force. Not every case is suitable and of course there are limitations, but if treatment is possible, it could result in a fantastic smile in a matter of weeks and at far less cost than other methods.
The Inman Aligner is a patented removable spring aligner that can correct mild and moderate crowding with relative ease and efficiency. This is why the aligner works so quickly.
Clearly aesthetic perfection can be achieved more easily with porcelain laminate restorations, but a very pleasing result can also be achieved at far less cost and risk by using an Aligner. A retainer is required, and undoubtedly, the work will need maintenance over time, but compared to the large risk and costs involved with heavily prepared veneers, this is an option that must be considered. A further advantage of aligning the teeth is that if someone does ever opt for porcelain laminate restorations in future, then at least the teeth are in a much more favourable position and will only need truly minimal preps. The Inman Aligner with its speed, cost and efficiency has the potential to offer patients a rapid, safe and less expensive solution to solving the problem of a less than perfect smile.
The Inman Aligner and Inman Family of appliances are some of the most successful appliances ever designed to correct adult relapse and have won both the Florida New Product Governor’s Award and the 2002 Harry Hagman Inventor Award. The appliances are used to correct misaligned teeth as well as cross bites and flared anteriors.
