Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

NC patients want to know how teeth straightening aligners work

If you are like most adults, you want a beautiful, straight smile. Fear of the price of orthodontics or of the appearance of metal brackets causes people to hide their smiles instead of exploring the options. Dr. William Virtue of Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville, NC offers the Inman Aligner as an alternative to traditional braces.

The science behind teeth straightening aligners

Conventional braces rely on pressure from one side of the teeth and tightening wires to alter the positions of teeth. Aligner systems such as Invisalign use a series of trays to gradually shift teeth into place. The Inman Aligner utilizes coil springs to power two bars that gently oppose each other. The inner and outer bows work against each other to shift teeth into place. The Inman Aligner can correct crowding and spacing issues while also straightening misaligned teeth. With the focus on front teeth, this aligner does not address issues with the jaw or bite.

Benefits of the Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner uses advanced technology to straighten front teeth quickly and effectively. Primary advantages include the following:

  • No metal bands or brackets are necessary.
  • The appliance is removable and can be taken out for eating and drinking. It must be worn for at least 16 to 20 hours each day.
  • Total treatment time is just six to 18 weeks!
  • The device uses gentle pressure to shift the teeth, so the process is comfortable.

Dr. Virtue was the past president and secretary of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). He is a current fellow and is SMART certified by the IAOMT. He also straightened his own teeth using the Inman Aligner. He is dedicated to utilizing safe and scientifically sound dental practices.
