Clear Aligners are a perfect orthodontic solution for adults who want a discreet brace that does not interfere with your daily life. They are ideal for straightening the front 6-8 teeth, ensuring a lovely, straight appearance when you smile.

The treatment time for clear aligners is in the region of around 9-24 months.

Clear aligners are clear plastic aligners that gently move the teeth into the correct position. There are many different brands of clear aligners e.g. Invisalign, clear correct. At Baltinglass Dental, we use the clear brace from IAS academy.

Clear aligners are the most discreet braces available, most people won’t be able to tell you are wearing braces.

The aligners are worn for around 22 hours every day and are taken out during eating and when cleaning your teeth.

Advantages of Clear Aligners

Very Discreet

Have your teeth straightened without the need for fixed braces on your teeth.

Comfortable

A light, gradual pressure is applied to the teeth so that only mild discomfort is felt. The smooth plastic of the aligners minimises irritation to the lips and gums.

Hygiene

As the aligners are taken out during eating and cleaning your teeth, it is much easier to maintain your teeth in a clean and healthy manner whilst your teeth are straightened.

It is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing you to go brace-free for important occasions.

  • Can correct moderate crowding and rotation of front teeth.

If you would like to find out how the Inman Aligner could help you call the practice on 0596482749 to book your initial consultation.

 

How does it work?

The Inman Aligner utilises one spring-loaded bow that fits behind the front teeth and another similar bow that fits across the front of the teeth. These components work together to “squeeze” the front teeth into alignment.

How long does it take?

Fitting the aligner takes two half-hour appointments, followed by 15-minute reviews every 2-4 weeks. For most patients, treatment is complete in 6 to 16 weeks.

Does it hurt?

Patients may experience some tightness and mild discomfort for the first week or so. Like anything foreign to your mouth, it may cause you to salivate more than usual for 24 to 48 hours and could affect your speech for 7 to 10 days.
