The Inman Aligner™ Can Provide a Straighter Smile Faster
Crooked, tipped, and rotated teeth in the front of your smile can affect your confidence, no matter how minor. To help patients correct orthodontic concerns in their front teeth, Drs. Art Carpenter and Sejal Jobalia offer the Inman Aligner™ at their Kenilworth, IL, practice. This innovative appliance can often provide complete treatment in as little as six to 18 weeks, without the appearance of metal braces.
About the Inman Aligner™
The Inman Aligner™ is a new concept in accelerated orthodontic approach for cosmetic treatment. This method is able to address a number of orthodontic concerns, including:
- Rotated Teeth
The advanced appliance does not require fixed metal braces or longer treatment timelines. Instead, the aligner is similar to a traditional, removable retainer, and shaped to fit around the molars for support. Revolutionary coil springs exert pressure on the front and back of teeth to gently move them into proper alignment. The treatment is also discreet, because the portion that covers the front of your teeth is clear to blend more easily with your smile. Your appliance can also include an expander to make room for crowded teeth.
The Correction Process
If the Inman Aligner™ is right for you and your goals, we will begin treatment by taking impressions of your teeth. These detailed molds are sent to a specialized lab where your custom aligner will be made to fit your exact specifications. Extremely accurate 3-D printed models are used to provide the base for your appliance. When your aligner is ready, you will come to our office, and we will ensure that it fits properly and comfortably. We will also ensure that all personalized hardware is properly attached to your appliance to address your unique oral health concerns.
You will then wear your appliance daily, only returning to our office every two to three weeks for us to check your treatment progress. Your aligner should be worn for 16 to 20 hours per day for best results. If worn less often, your treatment timeline will take longer than originally planned. After your therapy is complete, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain proper dental alignment. You can discuss the various retainer options available with Dr. Carpenter or Dr. Jobalia.
The Inman Aligner™ is an extremely short-term treatment of just 6 to 18 weeks, and is very affordable as well.
