Dr. Aisha Ahmed is a Certified Inman Aligner Dentist
Dr Aisha Ahmed is a Certified Inman Aligner Dentist, so she can provide patients with a popular and successful alternative to conventional braces, the coil spring based Inman Aligner. Capable of straightening teeth in as little as 6 to 16 weeks, the Inman Aligner is described by many as the “missing link between orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry”.
Many cosmetic dentists are calling it the “missing link between orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.” – “The Greatest Innovation in Cosmetic Dentistry since the porcelain veneer“.
The Inman Aligner is an alternative to conventional braces, and in some cases veneers. Within just 6 – 16 weeks, the Inman Aligner works to straighten front teeth without requiring metal brackets to be cemented onto teeth. In fact, this innovation in dentistry is completely invisible, delivering the results desired by many, and without the drop in confidence.
Based on the use of just one appliance, the Inman Aligner treatment uses a lingual coil spring to put pressure on the teeth that need repositioning, while a labial bar reverses the same pressure. These components work together to squeeze the teeth together and align them into the desired position.
What are the Advantages of the Inman Aligners?
- Completely invisible
- An alternative to expensive “Invisible Braces”.
- Allows you to achieve great results using just one appliance.
- Can give you a wonderful smile with less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time.
- Can be removed and inserted as easily as a retainer.
- The cost of Inman Aligner treatment is typically much less expensive than traditional braces or invisible braces with which treatments times are also typically longer.
Will I need a retainer?
It’s likely your dentist will suggest that you use a retainer following treatment in order to keep your teeth in correct position. Most orthodontic treatments require the use of retainers, which prevent the risk of relapse and ensure your teeth stay in the correct position. Based on the severity of your alignment, your dentist will suggest an appropriate retention plan that should be followed strictly to avoid any alterations.
Do Inman Aligners affect speech?
Like all removable braces, the Inman Aligner will affect your speech while you adjust to it. However, it should only take a couple of weeks for you to begin speaking normally once more. In order to speed up the process, it helps to
practice speaking out loud while your aligner is in, so you can learn to speak with the addition of braces.
How often should I wear an Inman Aligner?
It is important to stick to the treatment plan provided by your dentist in order to gain the full effect of the Inman Aligner treatment. Your aligner should be worn everyday for at least 16-20 hours, and any reduction in this time could increase the amount of time your treatment will take. Despite this, your Inman Aligner should be removed before eating and you should make sure you clean your teeth and Aligner before it is placed back in your mouth.
