Inman Aligners

Inman Aligner is a removable appliance used to align front teeth fast

What is an Inman Aligner™?

Inman Aligner™ is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It's ideal as a stand alone treatment or to prealign teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers.

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 with the Inman Aligner™?

Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. Your Inman Aligner™ dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect. For suitable cases, the Inman Aligner is usually much faster than alternative orthodontic techniques.

What's involved in Treatment with the Inman Aligner™?

  • You will have an initial consultation where we will answer your questions and have a look at your teeth.
  • We will take impressions of your mouth, some photographs and x-rays, so that a diagnosis can be carried out.
  • At your next appointment, we will discuss your treatment options with you. If you’re happy to proceed, your practitioner will advise Inman Aligner™ to make your ‘invisible’ braces.
  • Initial fitting of the Inman Aligner™
  • Wear the Inman Aligner™ 16-20 hours a day
  • Regular Inman checks every 2-3 weeks
  • As with other orthodontic treatment, after treatment is completed with the Inman Aligner™, retention is recommended for life to prevent relapse. Retention can come in the form of a lingually bonded retainer or an Essix retainer.
