Your incisors and canines, which are the teeth at the front of your smile, play a big part in your appearance and overall oral health and function. If they are not properly aligned, it can be difficult to speak correctly or eat properly. Poor alignment can also result in your teeth striking each other at the wrong angles, which can lead to dental damage including cavities and infections.
Inman Aligners™ focus on correcting protruding teeth and crowding of your front teeth. The aligner gently applies pressure to your front teeth to gradually guide them into their proper positions, resulting in an attractive and healthy smile. Although the treatments will vary from person to person, on average, you will wear your aligner between 16 and 20 hours a day for anywhere between six to 18 weeks. If you have already had an orthodontic treatment and your teeth have started to drift back into their original positions, Inman Aligners may help to correct the problem.
