Inman Aligners: Definition and Benefits

When it comes to getting a straighter more attractive smile, many people want to avoid traditional metal braces. Not only are they unsightly and painful, but they can take several years to align teeth; even Invisalign can take over a year to give you your desired results. That is why Dr. Aaron Cook offers his patients in the Birmingham, AL area a new type of tooth alignment treatment: Inman Aligners

How They Work 

Inman Aligner treatments use a removable appliance that looks similar to a retainer to help align front teeth. The aligner uses coil springs to gently put pressure on the front and back of your teeth to bring them closer together, eventually forcing them into alignment. Since the Inman Aligner focuses more on the front teeth that show when you smile, they won’t be helpful in treating bite misalignments such as overbites and underbites. 

Benefits of Inman Aligners

  • They work fast – The Inman Alignment treatment is one of the fastest ways to get your front teeth into a straighter position. Generally, it takes only six to eighteen weeks for the Aligners to shift your teeth where they should be. Tradition braces and Invisalign both take about one to two years. 
  • They are removable – The Aligners must be taken out when you eat so you won’t have any food restrictions. This will also help you maintain good oral hygiene since you don’t have to maneuver the brush and floss around bulky braces. 
  • They cause less pain – Since the Inman Aligners cause a constant pressure they will cause less soreness and pain. Traditional braces need to be tightened regularly, adding intense pressure periodically over the course of the treatment. 
  • Don’t need to warn constantly – Aligners only need to be worn for sixteen to twenty hours a day since they need to be removed when you eat, brush, and floss. Yet, if they become uncomfortable you can take them out for a few minutes.
