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 does it work?
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 is the treatment time?
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.
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 your entire life because otherwise you risk relapse. Retention can come in the form of a lingual bonded retainer or an Essix retainer.
