An Inman aligner is a removable appliance that can be used either as a stand-alone treatment to straighten the front teeth or as a solution prior to other cosmetic treatments, such as bonding or veneers.
While the appliance is not invisible and some metal components, it is however discreet and not as obvious as other teeth straightening options such as fixed metal braces
It consists of nickel titanium coil springs, ensuring a gentle force is applied over time to guide the teeth into alignment.
The Inman Aligner™ is able to provide a relative quick solution to straighten mild crowding of your front teeth and should be worn for between 16 and 20 hours every day and regular checks every 2-3 weeks will be needed to check the progress.
There are two main procedures associated with Inman aligner treatment which allow us to be able to give you the beautiful smile that you deserve. One of them is the use of attachment technology and the other is known as IPR. More details of each are given below:
If you have mild to moderate crowding of your front teeth or they are sticking out then you may well be a suitable candidate for Inman Aligner treatment. One of our expert dentists will be able to assess your suitability at your consultation.
As with any orthodontic appliance, the Aligner can feel a little uncomfortable for the first few days. After a week, most patients are used to their Aligner and have no problems wearing it.
The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will then acclimate to the appliances over time and be able to speak fine with them in place.
Ideally you should wear the Aligner for 20 hours a day. You can remove it whilst eating and brushing.
The absolute minimum is 16hours per day but the treatment may take longer to finish if worn for less than 20 hours per day.
It should always be removed before eating and you should clean your teeth and your Aligner before you refit it back into your mouth.
Cases vary depending on the degree of crowding and level of compliance but most cases are completed in 6-18 weeks.
Yes. All orthodontic treatment needs to have a retainer after treatment or will run the risk of relapse and the Inman Aligner treatment is no different in this respect.
We offer a haven of tranquillity, thoughtfully designed to stimulate the senses and complemented by state-of-the-art technology that makes your experience calm, relaxing and ultimately re-energising.
