Do you have teeth that are overcrowded, or perhaps protruding front teeth? Would you like them to be straighter? If so the Inman Aligner Leeds may be suitable for you, and is available at Leeds City Dentalcare. One of the major advantages of this system is the speed at which it’s able to change the position of the teeth. The majority of cases can be completed in as little as four months, and possibly a lot less. Some people may need as little as 6 to 8 weeks of treatment. The exact treatment time is something that will be determined when you visit our Leeds dental surgery for your initial consultation. It’s removable, making it super easy to keep your teeth clean during treatment.
It works through using nickel titanium coil springs to exert pressure on two aligner bows that oppose each other. There is one bow on the inner surfaces of the teeth, and another on the outer surfaces of the teeth, so the inner bow will push the teeth outwards, while the outer bow will exert an inwards force. This gentle yet active pressure gradually moves the teeth into the correct position.
Once it’s been decided that this is a suitable course of action for your particular case then treatment is relatively straightforward. We’ll simply need to take impressions of your teeth so we can fabricate your custom-made aligner. The next step is to fit the aligner, after which you’ll need to wear it for between 16 and 20 hours each day. You’ll need to come back to our Leeds surgery every 2 to 3 weeks so we can see how well the treatment is progressing. Once treatment is completed then you’ll need to wear a retainer at night in order to prevent them from moving back into their previous position.
Inman Aligners Can Be Used in a Variety of Situations
This type of aligner is suitable for both upper and lower teeth that are crowded, or can be used to close the gaps in between teeth. It’s a good treatment for front teeth that protrude, especially as the results are so quick. These aligners can be used to straighten up teeth that are unevenly aligned. These aligners are often used by Dr David Brown or another of his dentist Leeds as part of a smile makeover.
Patients looking to transform their smile often benefit from orthodontics Leeds, as very few people have naturally straight teeth. In such cases these aligners would usually be used to straighten the teeth before perfecting their smile with additional cosmetic dentistry. It’s extremely common for people having this treatment to follow it up with teeth whitening in our Leeds surgery, as this is the perfect way to show off a newly straight smile. Teeth that have a less than regular shape, or which have minor imperfections can benefit from bonding. This is where composite resin material is applied to the tooth and shaped to give the most cosmetically pleasing result. Having teeth straightened prior to veneers can mean less healthy tooth structure needs to be removed to make room for the veneers. It is a great way of keeping tooth preparation to the absolute minimum, and can give the desired results within a very short space of time.
