Many individuals are born with twisted or crooked teeth. And in few cases, completely straight teeth can also become twisted with age. It happens because of the changes occurred in the structure of their mouth, or due to the movement of teeth, or even due to tooth loss.

Having misaligned or crooked teeth can certainly make you feel bad. In case of many people, uneven teeth in their tender age lead to braces. But using braces is not the permanent solution to fix crooked teeth. Twisted teeth may come back in later life when wisdom teeth develop in and push other teeth. Crooked, twisted or misaligned teeth may lead to the problems in chewing food, tooth decay, gaps, difficulty in cleaning and other many severe dental problems. Crooked teeth can also create painful chewing and biting, leading to TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disease). It is the damaging and painful situation of jaw joints.

Straightening crooked teeth enhances your self-confidence that helps you to become a more confident and productive person. It is very easy to clean straight teeth and they are less susceptible to gum problems and tooth decay. This dentistry area is known as orthodontics.

Since adults feel awkward by wearing wire braces so they need some techniques of straightening teeth without the use of visible wire braces. These all straightening methods provide you the chance of having the smile that you have thought about. Fortunately, there are lots of new solutions are presently available like Invisalign, Inman aligner, clear braces, veneers, and crowns etc.

Inman Aligner: The Inman Aligner is the treatment method, somehow lies between invisible braces method and the metal braces method. This aligner is not invisible like Invisalign but it depends upon the removable aligner, which pushes their teeth by applying strength to them.

  • Dear PAUL, Your dentition requires a clinical evaluation. Without that it is quite difficult to say that can your conditions be treated by braces alone or does it require a surgical intervention. So, i would recommend you to visit an orthodontist where an OPG will be taken. If possible do send us the pics of OPG so that we can guide you with the treatment.
