Are you suffering from Ingrown for involuted Toenails?

Why do Ingrown ToeNails occur?

Ingrown toenails develop when one side or edge of a toenail starts to grow into the adjacent skin. Initially, the discomfort may be minimal and cause only minor pain. However, as the nail continues to grow, it can penetrate deeper into the skin, leading to inflammation and swelling in the surrounding tissue. This can result in significant pain and, in some cases, lead to an infection.

Reasons that ingrown toenail may occur

  • Genetic – Having a naturally involuted nail shape means that your toenails naturally tend to curve or grow inward, which can make you highly susceptible to developing ingrown toenails.
  • Footwear – Footwear that is excessively tight or has a narrow design can exert heightened pressure on your toes.
  • Trauma – Accidentally stubbing your toes or dropping something on them can alter the shape of your toenail or cause a portion of the nail to break off, potentially leaving a fragment behind that may grow abnormally or become ingrown.
  • Nail care – Trimming your toenails excessively short or engaging in the habit of picking or peeling your nails can result in the presence of small nail fragments or spicules. These fragments have a tendency to embed themselves into the surrounding skin, increasing the likelihood of ingrown toenails.

Regularly visiting your foot specialist is often sufficient to address and resolve ingrown toenail issues.


How to fix them?


Nail braces can effectively rectify highly curved and painful ingrown toenails. These braces consist of a stainless steel wire that is placed over the nail and gradually, without causing discomfort or being invasive, lifts the curved nail into its proper alignment. The correction process involves regular adjustments, necessitating monthly follow-up appointments. This treatment typically spans a duration of 1 to 2 years because it encompasses an entire nail growth cycle, from the root to the tip, to achieve full correction.
