When you look at your teeth in the mirror, you feel frustrated! Years of braces that you wore as an adolescent seem like they never even happened, as your front teeth have shifted over time. You don't have fond memories of those years of wearing brackets and wires, so you've just learned to live with teeth that overlap, and you tend to hide them when you smile. Your Chesterfield dentist has great news for you! There's a better way to reclaim your smile with the Inman Aligner, and here are some of the advantages.

No Restrictions to Diet

The Inman Aligner is a removable appliance, that looks much like a retainer. It uses force applied from both the front and back of your teeth to straighten them. The aligner should be worn 16-20 hours per day for the best results, but it can be removed for eating. This means that you won't have the restrictions to your diet that are required with traditional braces.

Accelerated Treatment Time

Because there is pressure from both the back and the front of the appliance, your treatment time with the Inman Aligner is much faster and can typically be completed in 6 to 18 weeks, depending on the severity of your case. You will not spend years realigning your teeth as you did in the past with traditional braces.

No Changes to Your Home Care Routine

You can easily take your appliance out for brushing and flossing, which means your home care routine doesn't change. This ensures that you maintain optimum oral health throughout your entire treatment.
