Are you one of the millions of adults in need of adult braces who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed by your smile?
Anterior Alignment Orthodontics uses a modified brace system that boasts incredibly fast treatment times; a great way to straighten your teeth for a special occasion.
The braces are hardly visible with clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires. The system uses a low force, moving the teeth gently, which makes the treatment more comfortable. AAO focuses on aligning only the teeth seen when you smile.
What is an Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It's ideal as a stand-alone treatment or to prealign teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers.
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.
How long is the treatment with the Inman Aligner?
Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. Dr Lackova will give you a realistic guide on what to expect. For suitable cases, the Inman Aligner is usually much faster than alternative orthodontic techniques.
