Inman Alinger Braces - Boston, MA

Before getting my Inman Alingers I did lots of...

Before getting my Inman Alingers I did lots of research, I also met with a orthodontist to get his opinion. He wasn't too similar with the appliance, but when I explain to him he told me it wouldn't be worth it. But I'm a pretty stubborn person and don't usually let down easy.

So I decided to research the doctors in my areas that did offer the treatment, I found one. All her reviews about her practice was positive. I even found one about the Inman Alingers. So I did make an appointment to get the process started.

When I got there I was actually greet by the dentist , she was out front in the reception area. So I waited and when I went back to the treatment room I met with the dental assistant who asked me some questions about what I wanted to do with my smile, and showed me pictures of their previous work. Then I met with the doctor who explain the procedure, she did an exam on my mouth , took about 5 minutes or so. We discuss goals I was looking to achieve and went from there.

After the exam she told me I would be a candidate for the treatment, She told me the price $2200-3000 for the whole mouth and $1100-1500 per set upper and lower. I decided that I wanted to come back and later and get started. I came back about two weeks later , I paid my $1100, just got the upper row done first . The dental assistant made molds of my mouth and she took pictures of my mouth. The whole process took about 30 minutes. Then the doctor looked at the molds and pictures and discuss more about what will happen with the inman alingers and what to expect. The shipped the mold to a company that makes the inman alingers. I came back about a month later and got them placed in my mouth. She did do this thing called IPR , which basically creates spaces between my teeth that so the teeth can move.
I will say that the appliance is bulky and you will sound a bit funny , but you get used to it and it goes away eventually. I am about 75% done with my treatment and so far I can say that I am pleased with it. It has may a big improvement in my smile, just within the last 6 weeks. She told me that it will take about 9 weeks for the treatment to be complete. Treatment was done in Lexington, MA ( Greater Boston Area)

I would like to also add that I am never had braces before, so this was a first for me. Prior to having this done, I did get my wisdom teeth removed 11 months ago, so I would have as much room as possible. I also wore my retainer for the recommended 20 hours , 4 hours for resting the mouth. During the 4 hours I would eat. I also split up the 4 hours between the morning , afternoon , night. I was able to feel and see a change within the first few weeks.

I will say that my dentist did say that everyone is different and some people teeth move quicker than others.
