How the Inman Aligner Can Give You a Straighter Smile Quickly

Friday, July 28th, 2017

shutterstock_308565782Do you feel the need for speed when it comes to wearing braces? Many of our patients come in looking for the fastest solution for crooked, crowded and wonky teeth. The good news is that modern treatments offer a rapid alternative to traditional braces. With appliances like the Inman Aligner, we can deliver results in weeks, rather than years.

What is the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a removable brace, which was developed in the USA. This revolutionary device offers a discreet, swift alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who have minor issues that require limited movement. The aim of the aligner is to straighten the front teeth. This is an ideal option for those who have slightly crooked front teeth or small gaps between the front teeth.

How does the Inman Aligner work?

The Inman Aligner is a removable tray-shaped brace, which fits over the top of the teeth. It is transparent, but it has visible parts, including a metal bar, which runs along the front teeth. The aligner has two nickel coiled springs, which generate forces, causing the teeth to move into the correct position. There is one spring at either side of the brace. The forces that are produced by the component parts are gentle, but they produce a lot of movement, and this is why this treatment achieves results so quickly.

How long does treatment take?

Every patient is different, but most cases can be completed within 16 weeks. In some cases, you may only need to wear your brace for 6 weeks. We recommend wearing the aligner for around 20 hours per day for the best results.

If you like the sound of the Inman Aligner and you’re wondering if it could be a good match for you, why not pop in and see us or give us a ring and book a consultation?

Quick, Simple Straightening with the Inman Aligner

Friday, June 10th, 2016

386703_blogLeeds dentists straighten teeth quickly and effectively with the Inman Aligner

For many years, lots of people have benefited from the straightened teeth offered by braces.  However, although they are extremely effective, braces are not without problems for the wearer.  Firstly, they often need to be worn for as long as three years.  That’s three years with a mouth full of metal that is visible every time you smile! This can be especially troubling for those who find social situations difficult anyway.

The Inman Aligner can straighten teeth just as effectively as traditional braces, but eliminate the two problems identified above. The Inman Aligner works incredibly quickly. With an average treatment time of less than six months, some patients complete the treatment in just six weeks. What’s more, the device is completely removable, which makes it much easier to clean.

This brace is also very discreet. The only visible part is a thin straightening bar running across the front teeth.  The rest of the working parts of the Inman Aligner are out of view.  It works work by using the power of a coiled spring to push teeth against the straightening bar.

Despite the extra speed and convenience of being able to remove it, the Inman Aligner is not an expensive option. In fact it costs roughly the same as most other, similar orthodontic treatments.  It is worth bearing in mind though that the Inman Aligner is not suitable for rotating teeth.

Faster Braces Options

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

Inman Aligner: if speed is your priority and you only need treatment for minor issues, the Inman Aligner is a great choice. The Inman Aligner is a removable appliance, which is designed to correct misalignment of the front teeth and provide a solution for patients who have suffered relapse following treatment in the past. The Inman Aligner uses forces generated by a coiled spring and a metal bar to move the teeth rapidly, but the forces are gentle, so you won’t feel any pain. The average treatment time is around 16 weeks and the aligner also offers the benefit of being removable, which boosts oral health and makes treatment for convenient for day to day life.

CFast: CFast is a discreet fixed brace, which works quickly to straighten the front teeth and produce beautiful smiles. The average treatment time is just 6 months and the components are made from tooth-coloured ceramics, so they are barely noticeable.

Incredible Discreet Dentistry With The Inman Aligner

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

3943593_blogDiscretion is a buzz word when it comes to orthodontics because many people want to have treatment without the worry of it impacting on their looks. Braces are not the most attractive accessory, but we are able to offer discreet treatment systems to straighten your teeth with minimal impact on the look of the smile. One of our most popular and exciting treatments is the Inman Aligner.

The Inman Aligner represents a discreet, rapid alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who have minor issues with the front teeth. This removable appliance is capable of straightening the teeth in a matter of weeks and the best thing is that the brace is barely visible to other people.

What exactly is the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a removable aligner, which consists of a coiled spring and a metal bar. The metal bar is very fine and it runs along the front teeth, while the spring is located behind the teeth. The aligner simply sits on top of the teeth and the forces generated by the two key parts move the teeth. These gentle forces push and pull, squeezing the teeth and causing them to move in the desired direction.

The Inman Aligner is not invisible like Invisalign or Clearstep aligners; however, all that can be seen is the fine metal bar and treatment is so quick that it will be over before you know it.

The average treatment time for the Inman Aligner is just 16 weeks.

Who is an ideal candidate for the Inman Aligner?

This treatment is ideally suited to patients who need minor correction and it is a great choice for those with slightly crooked front teeth, mild crowding or a small diastema (gap between the front teeth). We also recommend the Inman Aligner as a treatment for relapse, which occurs when the teeth start to move after treatment.

Fast And Discreet Straightening With The Inman Aligner

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

The Inman Aligner is a really impressive aligner treatment, which moves the teeth by producing gentle forces using a coiled spring and a metal bar; these forces squeeze the teeth, pushing or pulling them into place. Although the aligner is not completely invisible, like some other systems, all you can see is the metal bar on the front teeth and this is very fine and much less noticeable than a fixed brace.

The ins and outs of treatment

Inman Aligner treatment is really simple; all you have to do is wear the aligner for at least 21 hours per day. As the appliance is removable, you can take it out at meal times and when you clean your teeth, but it is really important to ensure you wear it for the recommended time each day for the best results.

The Inman Aligner is not a viable option for everyone and it is primarily designed for patients with minor issues, which involve the front teeth. By focusing on these teeth, you can be sure of a beautiful smile and an incredibly short treatment period. The average treatment time for this system is just 16 weeks, making it an amazing solution for patients in a hurry and those who only need minor correction. We can also recommend this treatment for patients who have signs of relapse following previous treatment.

If you have crooked front teeth, minor crowing or a gap between your front teeth, this could be the perfect solution. Call us now or pop in and see us when you next head into Leeds to find out more and book a consultation.
