The Inman Aligner is a really impressive orthodontic treatment; it uses forces generated by two key component parts to straighten the teeth in a short period of time.
What is the Inman Aligner?
It is a removable orthodontic appliance; it is made up of two parts: a coiled spring and a metal bar. The spring is located at the back of the teeth and the bar runs along the front teeth. The Inman Aligner is not invisible, like other discreet braces, but the metal bar is very fine, making this a more discreet option than traditional fixed braces.
How does the Inman Aligner work?
It works by generating forces, which move the teeth into the correct position. The coiled spring and the metal bar generate forces, which push and pull the teeth, squeezing them into position.
The Inman Aligner is one of the most advanced orthodontic treatments and it can produce amazing results quickly. There are no bands, ties or painful adjustments and you can take the device out to clean your teeth, drink and eat.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment times are generally very quick. You should start to notice the results after just a few weeks and, in most cases, treatment is complete within 4-5 months. The exact treatment time varies from case to case but we can give you an idea of how long treatment will take during your consultation.
Who is the Inman Aligner suitable for?
The Inman Aligner is suitable for patients with minor or moderate orthodontic issues and also patients who have had treatment previously and started to suffer from relapse (when the teeth start to move).
We will examine your mouth and discuss your needs and preferences during the consultation to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Inman Aligner treatment. If you are not a suitable candidate for this treatment, we can help you to choose a more suitable treatment.
It is a great option for patients who have minor orthodontic problems and those who want results fast. The Inman Aligner is not invisible, but treatment times are very short and the metal bar is discreet. The Inman Aligner is removable, which is often preferable due to the increased flexibility and means that they do not need to worry about eating in public or getting food trapped in their braces.
