So, you’ve decided you want to improve your smile—that’s great! The problem is the time that it takes to get there. If you’re looking for orthodontic treatment, you probably already feel self-conscious about your teeth. And, ironically, the fear of looking different while wearing braces often deters people from fixing their smile. There’s a solution to this problem: the incredible, invisible Inman Aligners!
Why Choose Invisible Inman Aligners?
For a lot of people, the choice of undergoing an orthodontic treatment comes down to this: sacrificing the appearance of their smile for a short time to make it look better in the long run, or keeping their smiling as is, even if they aren’t pleased with it.
With Inman Invisible Aligners, that’s a choice you don’t have to make! These invisible aligners will go completely undetected by your friends and family members. And, in the long run, they will dramatically improve your smile. Another great thing about them is they are much cheaper than traditional braces. There are really no downsides with this option!
How Do Invisible Inman Aligners Compare to Braces?
Inman Aligners have the power of braces but with even more precision because they’re highly customised to your mouth. Swedish Dental starts the treatment process by scanning your teeth and creating a 3D model. We use this as the mould for your Inman Aligner. Because they are moulded to your exact teeth, they fit better than a glove!
Best of all, Inman Aligners are barely noticeable! They are completely transparent. Unlike braces that are awkward with their metal look and feel, invisible Inman Aligners seamlessly mesh with your teeth so no one will notice the difference. Sometimes when you’re wearing braces, you cut your cheeks or lips. Inman Aligners won’t give you this problem. They are smooth and safe for your sensitive mouth.
Another issue with braces or similar orthodontic treatments is that they stay in your mouth all the time. That can be frustrating, uncomfortable, and embarrassing—especially if you don’t like the way they look. But invisible Inman Aligners can be taken out with ease. If your mouth feels sore or you need to eat, you can take them out and put them back in later.
How Do Inman Aligners Work?
Inman Aligners are made of transparent plastic or acrylic. Their power to change your smile comes from two bows at the back of your mouth that are made from nickel titanium coil springs. These coil springs gently push your teeth forward. For the first few days of treatment, it’s common to feel a little uncomfortable while wearing your Inman Aligners. But after you get through that, your Inman Aligners will start to feel normal. You’ll barely notice they’re there—and no one else will see them either.
Who Can Use Inman Aligners?
Inman Aligners are unique in that they are only meant to be used for your top and bottom six teeth at the front of your mouth. So if these are your problem areas, they could be the perfect fit! If you’ve had a previous orthodontic treatment (such as braces) that did not yield positive results, Inman Aligners can help correct your smile.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Most patients only have to wear Inman Aligners for six months. It is a faster and more effective technique than braces! Usually, patients can expect to wear their Inman Aligners for sixteen to twenty hours a day. If you wear your Inman Aligners for closer to twenty hours a day, you won’t have to wear them as long. Conversely, if you wear them less, your treatment will take longer.
How Do I Care for My Invisible Inman Aligner?
Invisible Inman Aligners require much simpler maintenance than you would have to deal with for braces. Braces are difficult to brush. It’s not uncommon for people who have braces to develop teeth stains while undergoing treatment because it can be challenging to brush around the braces themselves. It’s also easy for food to get stuck in your braces, and it’s tough to get it back out. That is frustrating and embarrassing if you’re out in public.
Invisible Inman Aligners can be cleaned and maintained with ease! You can take them out, which means your teeth won’t stain while you’re wearing them. You’ll still be able to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly. You won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in them because you’ll take them out when you’re eating. You should treat your Inman Aligner like your teeth—it requires its own hygiene routine. Make sure you brush your Inman Aligners gently using toothpaste. Incorporate this into your nightly routine right after brushing your teeth.
What Happens After the Inman Aligners Come Out?
Just like with any other orthodontic treatment, you still need a retainer after we take off your Inman Aligners. Retainers ensure that your new smile stays in good condition and you don’t have a relapse. The good thing is you usually will only have to wear your retainer at night, and you’re no longer on a strict schedule. Not wearing it for a day or two won’t make a difference.
Inman Aligners offer patients maximum results with the smallest amount of inconvenience. After you have finished your time wearing your Inman Aligners, you can smile with confidence! The only thing people will be thinking about your smile is how beautiful it is. If you’re convinced Inman Aligners are the right way to improve your smile, contact Swedish Dental. We’ll schedule a consultation where we can discuss the details of your treatment.
