What is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is an Orthodontic Appliance that Straightens Your smile in as little as 6-16 weeks!
The Inman Aligner offers patients a fast orthodontic solution to straighten teeth for a beautiful smile makeover at an affordable cost. It works best on mild and moderately crowded front teeth, so if you need to straighten more than that, we can explore other orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign, or restorative treatments such as veneers. This can all be discussed at your free consultation appointment.
What is an Inman Aligner?
It’s a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely.
It’s ideal as a stand alone treatment or to realign teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers.
How it works
The aligner has a nickel titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position.
These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, hence the Inman Aligner works quickly.
How long will treatment take?
Most cases are completed within 6-16 weeks but we will give you a realistic guide of what to expect.
For suitable cases, the Inman Aligner is much faster than other orthodontic techniques.
- Corrects minor to moderate crowding and rotation of teeth
- More comfortable to wear due to the spring made of nickel titanium and not of stainless steel
- No retention issues
- Less expense in shorter period
- Very safe and gentle to teeth
- Minimally invasive orthodontic treatment
- Offers great results with one appliance only
Impressions are taken so that the lab can fabricate your custom made Inman Aligner.
You wear the aligner 16-20 hours a day with checks every 2-3 weeks. As with other orthodontic treatments, at completion retention is recommended for life, to avoid the risk of relapse.
Retention can come in the form of a lingual bonded retainer a clear retainer or a plate. The Inman aligner itself can be adjusted to be worn as a plate.
