If you’re searching for an orthodontic treatment, which offers everything from speed to discreet aesthetics, allow us to introduce you to the Inman Aligner. This innovative treatment offers a modern take on traditional fixed braces for patients who require minor correction.
What exactly is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a fast-acting removable brace, which is designed to target minor issues with the front teeth, such as mild crowding or spacing. This innovative device uses forces generated by a coiled spring at the back of the teeth and a metal bar, which sits on the front of the teeth, to push and pull the teeth, moving them into the correct position and producing a beautiful, perfectly aligned smile. The aligner slides over the teeth in a similar way to a mouth guard.
Is the Inman Aligner visible when you smile?
The Inman Aligner is not invisible like other aligner systems; however, it is very discreet and the only part that can be seen is a very fine metal bar. Treatment times are also much shorter than most other aligner systems.
How long will I need to wear the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is one of the fastest treatments on the market and most cases are complete within just 4 months; you will start to notice changes after just a few weeks.
Who is the best candidate for the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is not a universal treatment and it is suited to patients who only need a small amount of movement and correction for minor issues. This treatment also focuses on the front teeth.
In addition to patients who are having treatment for minor problems for the first time, the Inman Aligner can also be very beneficial for patients who have suffered relapse (when the teeth begin to move out of position) following treatment in the past.
Will I need to wear a retainer?
We strongly recommend wearing a retainer after orthodontic treatment; retainers are designed to hold the teeth in position and prevent them from slipping or sliding out of position.
