So, what are some of the questions our former patients have asked us about our Inman Aligner braces in Liverpool? Read on to find out!

How long do they take to work?

The length of time that you will need to wear your Inman Aligner braces in Liverpool will depend on many factors. Firstly, our team will assess the severity of your misalignment and, using computer software, will be able to accurately predict how long you will need to wear them for. On average, treatment usually takes between 6-18 weeks to complete.

Are they uncomfortable?

As each aligner is custom-fitted to slot over your teeth, the Inman Aligner is very comfortable.

Also, as it is made from a malleable and flexible plastic, there are no metal components that will rub against your inner cheeks; you can even sleep with them in!

Am I suited for treatment with this aligner?

Our certified Inman Aligner dentist at our studio will be able to assess your suitability for treatment with this aligner.

However, in cases of overcrowding, or if there are protrusions or gaps that you want to do away with, then it is likely that you will benefit from treatment with this aligner. Great stuff!

Will it make me talk funny?

As this aligner is removable, when you first put it in, there may be some initial speech issues to adapt to.

However, if you notice your speech is affected long-term, please contact our team to assess the fitting of your aligners.

Do I have to wear it all day?

While our team will give you a unique prescription to follow to see the best results from this aligner, it is likely that you will be required to wear the Inman Aligner for 22-24 hours per day, removing it for eating, drinking and brushing your teeth. It will be worth it!
