Could a Spring Aligner Close the Gap in My Teeth?

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016
Q.

Good day. I am 26 years old and have a 2 mm midline diastema. Can a spring aligner (removable appliance) be used to close it? I was going to get braces but a dentist I met at the clinic suggested the spring aligner option and I have been researching it since.
They suggested it because they didn’t understand why I wanted braces (all my other teeth are well aligned etc.). When I told them I wanted to close my gap they suggested it.
N.B. I have tried doing a bonding trial, however it made my teeth look bold and unnatural and the Inman Aligner is not done by any dentist where I’m from.

Would the Inman Aligner Be Suitable For Me And How Much Would It Cost?

Thursday, August 13th, 2015
Q.

Dear Dr Moore,

I would like to consider the Inman Aligner and have visited my local dentist to ask further about this treatment. I suffer from gingivitis and have lost a few of my back teeth due to grinding and an abscess. The front teeth are apparently healthy and I wondered if this treatment was adequate for me. Also could you please confirm the price range for such treatment (upper and lower teeth) as I have been quoted over £4000 having mild crowding on the bottom and one tooth slightly out at the top creating a gap, but the rest are aligned. Many thanks for your feedback.

Is It Possible to Have a Fixed Brace on My Upper Teeth and an Inman Aligner on My Bottom Teeth?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
Q.

Is it possible to have a fixed brace on the upper teeth and wear an Inman Aligner on the bottom teeth? I have had a mini online consultation and was advised for the top teeth only. I have a rotated left front tooth and crowding on the left upper side. Right below on the bottom row I have a small gap and also one on the opposite side on the lower teeth. I thought you had to have braces for both the top and bottom teeth. I would really like to have a removable aligner for the bottom if needed, could you please advise if this is possible?

Would an Inman Aligner Straighten My Teeth?

Friday, May 15th, 2015
Q.

Hello. My front two teeth are pushed out, they do not stick out over my lower lip or out my mouth but it does bother me and I can’t smile properly in photos because I don’t like my smile. My lower front teeth are also slightly crooked. Would an Inman Aligner be of any use to me? I’m very unsure on the use of braces, as  I don’t like the idea of them. I’m 17, and my teeth lower my confidence significantly. I am also scared of needles and tooth extractions, which is the reason I refused braces when I was younger. Thank you.

Can I Use the Inman Aligner to Straighten my Upper Six Front Teeth?

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015
Q.

Good day, I hope you are well. Could you tell me please if I can use an Inman Aligner method to straighten my upper six front teeth? Also, is it important to treat bad teeth before using this method? My problem is that I have quite few broken teeth and my upper front teeth are not straight. I would be really helpful if you could provide me with all necessary information

Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

How Much Does Simpli5 Cost?

Monday, March 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hi there. My two front upper teeth are a little crooked. The left is overlapping the right tooth. The rest of my teeth are pretty straight upper and lower. It’s only the front two that are bothering me. I’ve been for a consultation at my local dentist and was recommended six month braces, but I want to avoid wired braces. After looking around I’m considering Simpli5 and wanted your opinion and a rough idea how much they would cost. Thank you.

Which Braces are the Best and Most Affordable to Treat a Relapsed Tooth?

Friday, February 6th, 2015
Q.

Since I was around nine or ten, until I was around 15, I had different types of braces to move my teeth and had extractions too. After having fixed braces and using the retainer for around a year the retainer broke and I couldn’t get an appointment for a while so one of my teeth, on the top right hand side between my front tooth and canine, has moved back from the rest, which are still straight. I would like to have braces just on the top to correct this. Which ones would be best and the most affordable, as I am 18 and a uni student? Thank you.

What is the Quickest and Most Affordable Way to Straighten Teeth?

Monday, January 12th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. My smile makes me look goofy. My two front teeth are big compared to the rest and it makes me feel horrible. I wouldn’t be able to pay for everything all at once, and would need some help with finance to pay out of my wages each month. I want my teeth at the top to be put back and in line with my bottom teeth, and for my teeth to be straightened out in the quickest and most affordable way. I am only 21. What would be my best option? Thank you for your help.

Does Pregnancy Cause Problems with Inman Aligner Treatment?

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes. I am picking up my Inman Aligner this Friday, and the treatment is due to be complete in a few months. My question is:
If I were to become pregnant during this time, would this cause problems my treatment? I have read some things on the internet that it shouldn’t be a problem but others have said it would be, which is true? Thank you in advance for your time!

My Bottom Tooth Is Slightly Further Back Than The Rest Of My Teeth. Is There Anything That Can Move This Forward?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
Q.

My bottom front tooth is slightly further back than the rest of my teeth and I was wondering if there is and procedure or technique that can be used to push it forward? I would rather not have braces as it’s only one tooth that needs to move and I am very happy with the rest of my teeth; although one of my top front teeth slightly overlaps the other. My top teeth really don’t bother me as much as the bottom one. I’m 21 and would like the least painful most cost effective treatment possible. Would a spring retainer be useful in this situation?
