Inman Aligner

Woman smiling in dental chairIf your front teeth have shifted over the years, or perhaps you weren't faithful about wearing your retainer after orthodontics, you may be able to benefit from an Inman Aligner in Chesterfield, MO. This is a removable appliance that focuses on aligning your front teeth much faster than traditional braces. In fact, most cases can be completed in a matter of weeks!

How do Inman Aligners work?

The Inman Aligner utilizes a bracket on the front and back of your tooth that causes much faster movement. The brackets are attached to an appliance that you'll wear 16-20 hours per day. The appliance can easily be removed so you can brush your teeth and eat as you normally would. With the focus being on your front teeth, treatment with the Inman Aligner is fast and effective.

Perhaps your teeth have relapsed after previous orthodontic treatment without consistent retainer wear? Maybe you'd like to straighten your teeth but you're not interested in wearing traditional braces? An Inman Aligner in Chesterfield, MO may be the best solution for you, here's how it works.

How it works

An Inman Aligner is a removable appliance that utilizes a pair of brackets both in front and in back of your teeth. When you wear the appliance for at least 16 to 20 hours per day, the aligner is able to move your teeth faster than traditional brackets and wires. Most cases can be completed in a matter of weeks as opposed to months or years like traditional orthodontics.

Special care or diet restrictions

Because you can easily remove the Inman Aligner, there are no changes or restrictions to your diet required during treatment. Your home care routine will also remain the same since you can remove your appliance to brush and floss your teeth.
