One of the advanced cosmetic orthodontic options available at Dr. Lance Timmerman’s practice is the Inman Aligner. This is a short-term and removable alternative to full metal braces. If you’ve ever wished you could just straighten out a few overlapped front teeth without bothering with orthodontics, then an Inman Aligner could be your answer.
An Inman Aligner is similar to a retainer that is made from clear plastic towards the back, and metal towards the front, where it applies pressure to your anterior teeth. There are gentle metal springs on the outside, which apply the tension necessary to move your teeth. The retainer is intended to be worn for a minimum of 16 hours a day, but many of the patients at Dr. Timmerman’s office wear them for closer to 20 hours a day. With an Inman Aligner you are able to:
- Eat whatever you want
- Take out the retainer whenever you need to
- Keep your teeth flossed and brushed with ease
- Enjoy a straighter smile in a matter of weeks
- Straighten your teeth without braces
Within 6-18 weeks you could see an incredible change in what your smile looks like. An Inman Aligner is not intended to correct a bad bite or adjust teeth in the back of your mouth. Because it applies pressure to just a few teeth, the aligner will encourage the front teeth to quickly move into correct positions, similar to short term orthodontics.
Depending on how severely rotated your teeth are, your case may take more or less time than average. Inman Aligners are excellent for straightening the teeth that show when you smile – the teeth that are most important to you.
If you have further plans for making cosmetic enhancements to your appearance, then an Inman Aligner could help you create the clean canvas that you need before painting a beautiful new smile.
