Get straighter teeth in weeks without braces

by June Portnoy

Langhorne dentist, Dr. Bharat A. Shah, D.D.S., will surely put a smile on your face by straightening your teeth in just six to 16 weeks, in most cases, without braces, using the Inman Aligner. Dr. Shah is the only certified dentist in this area to offer this revolutionary appliance.

“The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for crowding, protrusion, retraction and spacing of the front teeth,” says Dr. Shah.

It works by placing two clear bows behind your teeth activated by springs. The springs create gentle pressure that guides your front teeth into the ideal position. Only a clear plastic bow is visible on the front of your teeth. Since the pressure is gentle, any initial discomfort in minimal.

“The Inman Aligner is removable,” describes Dr. Shah. “You’ll need to wear it 15 to 20 hours a day, which means you can leave it home for a short time if you’re going to a special event.”
