The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth. It’s the orthodontic treatment of choice for adult relapse.
It is the perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It is really efficient, very safe and great value. With the patented Inman Aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-18 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.
What is Inman Aligner?
Set to take the UK by storm, the Inman Aligner can straighten front teeth in a fraction of the time of conventional orthodontics. The Inman Aligner is a removable appliance that applies continuous gentle pressure which quickly aligns crowded front teeth. The initial treatment can be completed in 8-12 weeks. Minor crowding can be corrected in 8 weeks or less. As the Inman Aligner is removable, it can be removed to eat and to clean the teeth.
The Inman Aligner is one of the most amazing breakthroughs of recent years and the ability to carry out rapid tooth movements prior to cosmetic treatment allows us to be more conservative than ever before. Treatments look and feel better, last longer and are healthier for your teeth and mouth. If you have already had veneer treatment on your upper teeth you may also like to consider the Inman Aligner for any minor corrections of your lower teeth.
Benefits of Inman Aligner
Aligning your front teeth will not only improve aesthetics but will also benefit the long-term health of your teeth. Teeth continue to move throughout one’s life so crowding tends to worsen over time. Uneven teeth are prone to uneven wear causing exposure of dentine that wears fast and absorbs stain. Straight teeth are far less likely to suffer from this ageing effect and expensive corrective treatments can be avoided.
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner has 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, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.
The image below shows the squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
How long is the treatment?
Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. Your Inman Aligner dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect.
