Dental Excellence of Blue Bell is happy to announce that we have added a new technology that can help appropriate candidates get straighter smiles faster. Although braces and aligners work well for achieving straight smiles, many people don’t want to wait the long time these procedures take, often about a year. Even Six Month Smiles seems like too long to wait for some people.
However, the Inman Aligner can get results in just six weeks.
What Is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance that uses a different method to move your teeth into position.
Normal braces have a wire that tries to pull your teeth into the desired position. The Inman Aligner, though, uses two metal bows to straighten your teeth from both sides. By working both from the front and the back, the Inman Aligner is able to get faster results than most orthodontic treatment–you can see results in as little as six weeks.
Advantages and Limits of the Inman Aligner
Obviously, the number one advantage of the Inman Aligner is its speed. Six weeks is a really fast treatment, although for many people it may take 18 weeks, and, rarely, more.
However, that’s not the only advantage of the Inman aligner. Because it’s completely removable, the Inman Aligner doesn’t keep you from eating all the foods you enjoy. And it doesn’t have the lengthy, complicated oral hygiene routine that goes along with braces.
The Inman Aligner does have limitations, though. Not everyone is a candidate for this exciting new procedure. And the Inman Aligner is highly visible, so when you’re wearing it, people will know. But that’s what’s good about it being removable–you can take it out for special events or social occasions.
