Inman Aligners & Clear Aligners in Birmingham, AL

young bright smiling couple hugging I invisalign cook family dental An attractive, confident smile is a joy to see! Society today values a beautiful smile more than ever, especially with all of the modern dentistry options available. Having a properly aligned smile is an asset in social situations and improves your confidence in your appearance.

Straight teeth can also help you achieve better oral health by eliminating overlapping that can make them more susceptible to decay. Proper alignment also makes teeth easier to restore in the event that you need fillings, crowns, or veneers.

For many patients who want a straight healthy smile, traditional orthodontics may seem cumbersome and like too much of an invasion on your day-to-day appearance. For patients wanting a more discreet option for orthodontic treatment, Dr. Aaron Cook is pleased to offer revolutionary Inman Aligners and ClearCorrect invisible braces in our Birmingham, AL dental office.

Inman Aligners

Inman Aligners are a fairly new orthodontic innovation and are an affordable option for straightening the teeth that show when you smile. Patients at our Birmingham dental office are especially impressed with Inman Aligners because they provide desired results in as little as six weeks. They are also completely removable for brushing, flossing, and eating.

Using a patented process, Inman Aligners gently guide your front teeth into their ideal position in a matter of weeks. Treatment is quick and efficient because, with Inman Aligners, the goal is not to correct a misaligned dental bite but to address the alignment of the front teeth that are visible when you smile.

Clear Aligners like Invisalign and Smart Moves use BPA-free clear, plastic aligner trays that gradually move your teeth into better, more esthetic alignment. We start by taking a digital scan of your teeth and developing your personalized treatment plan. Next, we will upload your scan to the lab to create your first series of aligner trays.

When your customized aligners are ready, we’ll have you return to our office to explain how to use them to achieve the fastest results. Be sure to wear each set of aligners for at least 22 hours each day for two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, simply change to the next set of aligners in the series.

We will have you come to our office periodically to make sure your treatment progressing as planned and no adjustments are needed (unlike some mail-order clear aligner companies that send the entire series of aligners on day 1).  These appointments are important because we can make adjustments as necessary to ensure optimal results as quickly as possible.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

Here are some benefits of using Clear Aligners like Smart Moves and Invisalign to straighten your teeth:

  • Removable trays – You can take them out to eat and clean your teeth.
  • Comfort – The aligners are made of smooth plastic with no sharp edges.
  • Discreet – Most people won’t notice you are wearing your aligners.
  • Low-force pressure – The aligners use constant low-force pressure to move your teeth.

Patients who opt for Clear Aligners appreciate their convenience, and many tell us they wish they had treatment sooner!
