Do all braces require impressions of the mouth to be taken?

January 8th, 2013
Q.

My front teeth are crooked. I have regular dental care and I am 31 years old. When having previous dental treatment for fissure sealant I had a mould taken of my teeth and found it extremely unpleasant. Is tooth straightening treatment possible without such a mould being taken? This is one of the key reasons that I am nervous about such treatment. Whether the mould is warmed, cold or flavoured, I don’t think I would want to tolerate it. I hope you can give some helpful advice. I have read up about the various tooth-straightening techniques and they all seem to require the taking of moulds/impressions in the mouth.

I don’t want metal braces for my severely overlapping two front teeth. What are my options?

December 19th, 2012
Q.

Hello Dr Tif,
I’m a young lady of just 25 and I’m very worried about my teeth. My two front teeth are severely overlapped and have now started to push each other and twist each other so that they are turning almost to face each other. It’s becoming a nightmare as they’re becoming increasingly difficult to clean and there is constantly some kind of food stuck in them. And on top of this, they’re really unattractive and people have been commenting on them. But I don’t want to get a full metal brace for just two troublesome teeth and walk round with metal stuck to my teeth. Well I was just wondering if you thought a different kind of brace would do the same thing and would be better suited for me and if so which one? Thank you!

Is the Inman Aligner quicker than other braces?

October 1st, 2012
Q.

My lower teeth have started to cross and I really badly want them straightening. I have been to the dentists and had an examination whereby he simply said “braces.” now I’m not being funny but I don’t want them! I have looked a lot at the Inman aligner which I like the look of. My first question would be; is it actually quicker than a traditional brace? If so, how much quicker generally speaking? The problem is that when I presented my dentist with the idea of having an Inman he scoffed and said that its not proper treatment!!! It goes without saying that he doesn’t provide it but there are local dentists that I know that do. Could you please advise me on crooked teeth and the Inman aligner and any possible reason why he would make comments like that saying they’re not proper treatment methods? Thank you

Is the Inman Aligner the best most cost effective brace available?

May 28th, 2012
Q.

Does it seem likely that I will be able to have straight teeth in 6 months with the inman aligner? My front teeth are gappy and a little buck and i would really just like to smile again without feeling embarrassed and having to hide behind my hand. My teeth are in good health and I have never even had a filling but i have never really been happy with my smile ever since I got my adult teeth. I now have the money I need to have treatment, but I just need to know where to start to get treatment. TBH the cheaper the brace the better, but that being said I wouldn’t want to skimp on quality. From what i have seen the inman aligner is very well priced, do you think i will be able to have my teeth straightened with the inman aligner?

thank you

I am a boxer who works as a receptionist, would the Inman Aligner be a good brace choice for me?

April 30th, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I have buckled teeth at the bottom of my mouth at the front and severe gaps at the top of my mouth at the sides because I had a couple of teeth taken out when I was 12 as my mouth was too crowded.
I do boxing semi-professionally and wondered if the Inman aligner would break or snap if there was contact to my mouth?
I have researched them the Inman Aligners online and have watched some videos on YouTube but so far I haven’t chosen a dentist as I keep changing my mind about the type of treatment I want.
My day job is a receptionist at a legal company so it is important I can speak clearly and communicate well. Would the Aligner impede my speech at all?
Do you think that the Inman aligner is for me or should I be looking at other treatments?

I can generally only wear my Inman Aligner for 17 hours a day, is this enough?

April 24th, 2012
Q.

Hi,
I have had my Aligner since Friday and have now established a wearing pattern.I can wear it for 14-17 hours a day depending on what is happening.The minimum will always be 14 hours.The hours of wear are not consecutive (normally 12 hours in a row and then blocks of either 1-2 hrs or 30 minute bursts.
In addition one of my front teeth is very roared and overlapped and reading things on various forums is making me concerned as to whether or not this will work with the wear time I can manage.

Is this an acceptable were time habit?
Will it still work?

Could you explain how the Inman Aligner brace works?

April 16th, 2012
Q.

Hello Tif I hope you don’t mind me saying but I am a bit confused by exactly how the inman aligner works. I understand the machanisms of normal metal braces or in layman terms I think I do but the idea of the inman aligner and the two components working together goes way over my head. Which is a shame as I think this treatment could work well for me – if only I knew what it could do with my condition. Would you be able to put it in to layman terms for me please? I hope to get me teeth sorted as soon as possible you see.

Can I wear the Inman Aligner on my top and bottom teeth?

February 13th, 2012
Q.

Do most patients find it ok to wear the inmanaligner on the top and bottom teeth, or is it only best suited for one jaw? I am hoping to have both of my jaws treated, just because they are so unaligned, but if this is not possible what type of treatment would you recommend? Should I opt for a fixed brace instead and if so what would you say is the most discreet of all the fixed braces?
I hope you can help, all the best

What is the best way to put teeth back that have been moved because of tongue thrusting?

January 27th, 2012
Q.

Hi doctor I do hope you can help. Do you know the best way to put teeth back that have been moved because of tongue thrusting? I have had the problem for pretty much all of my life and so my front teeth stick out more because of it. I do not like my smile and would love to have a straight one for once. However, if the inman aligner is for me and i have it straightened what do i do afterwards? I mean my tongue will still be ‘doing its thing’ so to speak, how do i stop all the work being erased once `i have finished with the brace?

very much hope you can help me with this!
