Inman Aligners explained in easy terms by a dentist in London SE1

02 / 04 / 2010

Inman Aligners are a very clever way of straightening teeth they were devised to not only progress dental methods of aligning teeth, but also to improve the confidence of the patience. Braces have always had an impact on the wearer and this has over the generations given children an unkind stigma, and led to bullying in a lot of cases. The great advantage that Inman Aligners have is their flexibility and the unique way they work to straighten teeth in a short time. Unlike traditional braces and invisible braces the Inman method uses springs that adjust more evenly, this way the teeth can be manoeuvred into position without too much readjustment. In fact most of the adjustment is actually done by the teeth themselves, as they are moved on a daily basis the springs will tighten or loosen on the necessary points and this makes the whole procedure work quicker. Inman Aligners are however most effective on the front teeth on the top and bottom sets, Invisaligns are used mostly for the back teeth says a dentist from SE1 in London. However, the good news is that most U.K. dentists now use a combination of both these braces to fix whole sets of badly misaligned teeth. The Inman Aligners have been popular in the U.S. and are now used widely in the U.K. either on their own, or in conjunction with other methods to solve the problem of our misaligned teeth. Fewer visits to the dentist chair are another advantage of Inman Aligners, unlike other methods that sometimes need a visit every few weeks the Inman method is a self adjusting one. It works quite simply by gently squeezing the teeth into the right position with the springs doing most of the work; this is then adjusted by a counter bar that repositions the springs and the pressure. As they are behind the teeth they are also harder to see.
