Will the Inman aligner damage my teeth?

Q.
Hello Doctor, I hope you are well

I was just wondering about Inman aligners. It sounds like one of the best treatments being very fast and much cheaper than some of the other more modern braces but could you tell me how it works. I understand there are opposing pressures and am just mildly worried that this could damage my teeth. Has this ever been the case? My problem is mainly my front teeth which are slighly buck, what is the general treatment time for a condition such as this?

thank you for your time doctor

Hi
The Inman Aligner is a removable brace that has a coil spring built in which pushes the teeth from behind, you also have a opposing bar in front of the teeth so pressure is applied to the front and back of the teeth, squeezing them together (the opposing pressures) and reducing the treatment time. It is very effective for simple front teeth alignments in one jaw and often treatment can only be 3 months.
With any tooth movement there are some possible risks, but this hasn’t been shown to increase with the Inman Aligner. I would look at http://www.inmanaligner.com/
Good luck
