The Incredible Inman Aligner

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

18625044We are delighted to offer our patients a range of innovative orthodontic treatments, including the incredible Inman Aligner. If you have minor orthodontic issues and are searching for an effective, swift and comfortable treatment option, look no further than the Inman Aligner.

What is the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance that exerts forces that squeeze the teeth, causing them to move in the right direction. The aligner slips into position over the teeth and is designed to be taken out when you eat and clean your teeth. Forces are generated by a coiled spring, located behind the front teeth and a thin metal bar, which can be seen running along the front of the teeth.

Who is a good candidate for Inman Aligner treatment?

Ideally, this treatment is suited to patients who have minor issues, such as crowding or crooked teeth, that involve the teeth at the front of the mouth. It is capable of achieving a small amount of movement in no time at all and presents a great option for those who need minor correction, as well as patients who have experienced relapse after previous treatment.

If you have complex issues that require a lot more movement, the Inman Aligner might not be the best choice for you. Once we have assessed your needs, we will be happy to go through treatment choices with you and help you to choose a more suitable option.

How long does treatment take?

If you’re in a hurry for results, have got a special date in mind or you simply can’t wait to show off your new smile, we have great news! This treatment is one of the fastest systems around, with an average treatment time of just 16 weeks. The exact time may vary slightly and your dentist will be able to give you an accurate prediction when you have your consultation.

Benefits of the Inman Aligner

To receive Inman Aligner care for skew, crooked or protruding teeth, patients undergo an initial examination and imaging to check for suitability of treatment. The Inman Aligner may not suit all individuals. During your consultation, the Inman Aligner practitioner explains all aspects of the treatment. Where agreed, impressions are made and sent to a laboratory for custom-making of the aligners.

Advantages to the Inman Aligner

The benefits far outweigh any drawbacks that may include a temporary adjustment period to wearing the braces system. Patients soon learn how to use the system properly and adapt speech. The dentist provides patients with information on how to property clean and maintain their Inman Aligner braces system.

Patients wearing Inman Aligner braces systems receive diverse advantages. The device is easily removed for cleaning to maintain good oral hygiene practice and for enjoying meals. Being custom-made and removable, the Inman Aligner is convenient and suitable for use by people with varied lifestyles.

Patients have a beautiful smile with natural teeth alignment within a few weeks, giving greater confidence. The treatment is pain-free, designed to reduce oral discomfort. In comparison to other modern treatments, the Inman Aligner is more cost-effective, giving patients added flexibility.

All About Braces!

Friday, January 8th, 2016

braces front teethBraces have been used to treat a range of different orthodontic problems for many years now and conventional metal braces are still used to address problems including overcrowding, gap between the teeth and poorly positioned teeth.

Many people think of traditional metal train-tracks when they hear the word brace, but braces have evolved considerably and there is now a whole host of different types of braces and orthodontic devices on the market.

Braces are usually associated with teenagers but recently there has been a significant increase in the number of adults visiting their dentist for orthodontic treatments. This is mainly due to the introduction of new, discreet treatments but is also associated with the rise of celebrity culture and the increased focus on image and beauty.

Although the conventional metal brace did enjoy something of a resurgence thanks to the Channel 4 series Ugly Betty, more discreet treatments have become much more popular. Now, the most popular treatments include Invisalign invisible braces, Damon Braces, Six Month Smile braces and the Inman Aligner.

Looking for a Leeds dentist? City Dental are here to help.

As well as being much more discreet than conventional metal braces, new orthodontic treatments also decrease treatment time and some treatments can produce amazing results in just a matter of weeks. Some treatments aren’t suitable for some people, the treatment you choose may depend on your budget but you will also be advised based on your orthodontic problems and your oral health status.

About the Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is an orthodontic appliance that works rapidly to correct misalignment and straighten out issues with the front teeth. The aim is to create a stunning smile and improve oral function.

The technology is advanced and the teeth move swiftly without causing discomfort.

As the Inman Aligner is removable, patients can enjoy eating without any difficulty and it is easier to keep dental disease at bay, as there are no risks of food getting stuck in the brackets or struggling to clean the teeth thoroughly because of the brackets and wires. You simply pop the aligner out and brush as usual. Many patients also prefer the sense of freedom a removable brace gives them.

Am I a good candidate for the Inman Aligner?

If you have minor orthodontic issues and are eager to enjoy rapid results, the Inman Aligner could be just the ticket! This treatment is designed to provide patients who only need a small amount of movement a fast and discreet alternative to traditional fixed braces and it can also be an excellent option for patients who have already had treatment in the past and started to suffer relapse. This occurs when the teeth start to move after treatment.  Your City Dental Leeds dentist will be able to determine whether you are a good match for the Inman Aligner once they have examined the teeth and had a good look at your bite.

The Benefits of Removable Orthodontics

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

2904387_blogRemovable orthodontics are increasingly popular and it’s no wonder! They offer a host of benefits for patients of all ages with all kinds of orthodontic prescriptions. Here are just some of the advantages you can enjoy if you opt for a removable brace:


With a removable brace, you can enjoy much greater flexibility than with a fixed brace, as you can take your brace out whenever you want to. It is important to stress that you should wear your brace according to the instructions from your dentist and you shouldn’t spend long periods of time without wearing your brace. However, many patients enjoy the freedom of being able to take their brace out quickly and simply.


Removable braces are very convenient because they have minimal impact on day to day actions that might be made more difficult by wearing a fixed brace, such as cleaning your teeth and eating. With a removable brace, you simply take the brace out, eat your dinner normally and then pop your brace back in.

Improved oral hygiene

With a removable brace, you can continue to clean your teeth in the same way as you did before you started treatment. It is much easier to clean your teeth without a brace in place than it is to try and steer a toothbrush around brackets and wires. This improves oral hygiene and reduces the risk of dental diseases, including tooth decay and gum disease. It’s also very easy to keep the brace clean as you can simply remove it and rinse it out.


Many removable braces offer incredibly natural looking and discreet aesthetics that will help you to feel more confident during the treatment process. Invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, straighten the teeth without any impact on the look of the smile. On the other hand, the Inman Aligner is not invisible, but it offers a much less noticeable aesthetic than fixed braces.


Removable braces tend to be more comfortable than fixed braces because they don’t have bands or wires that need tightening and many contain no metal parts.
