The thought of wearing dental braces tends to put people off having their teeth straightened. The more traditional braces that were made of dark-colored materials and were easily visible when worn come to mind when we think of this. Unsurprisingly, many people would probably not choose to have these unless their teeth were severely crooked. The idea of wearing braces to correct a small problem, such as a minor overlap of the teeth, would almost be unimaginable, so an attractive smile would be ruined. Thankfully, things have changed. You can now wear teeth braces that are barely detectable by those around you.
Transparent Tray Orthodontics
Newer types of orthodontics are seen in popular brands such as Invisalign. Although this is a very popular way of straightening teeth, it is frequently used when more significant correction is needed, such as to straighten teeth in the sides and back of the mouth. In this system, transparent trays are used over your teeth instead of wires and brackets. Every tray in the series is designed to move the teeth a little bit more than the one before it, each being worn for a short while until it is replaced by the next. Each tray is manufactured to fit the individual. Besides ensuring that it is effective in correcting your crooked teeth issue, it also helps you to feel more comfortable wearing them. The fact that this type of teeth straightening can take a year or more makes this comfort factor very important to many patients.
Similar to Invisalign, the Inman Aligner can also be removed for eating and cleaning. They can act much faster than Invisalign and similar systems since they are used typically for cosmetic improvements of the 'social six' teeth, which are the six upper and lower teeth visible when we smile. Correcting these issues will take a certain amount of time depending on the severity of the issue. A cosmetic dentist can give you a guide as to how long it will take, but it could only take a few weeks, whereas more significant corrections can take up to 18 weeks. Though it is only a short time, you will benefit from having a smile that is even and attractive.
