Inman Aligner: Straight Teeth. Fast
Straighter teeth without the fuss. The Inman Aligner is a convenient and quick adult orthodontic option which can be used to correct moderate crowding and protrusion of the teeth. Inman Aligner is used for treating the top and bottom front teeth.
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with two spring loaded aligning bars that fit easily over the front four teeth. Unlike a regular brace, the Inman Aligner provides a constant gentle pressure on the teeth, easing them back into place far more quickly.
Apart from its aesthetic benefits, the Inman Aligner is easy to use and can be inserted and removed at any time, allowing eating, brushing (and kissing) to continue as normal. Once teeth have moved to the desired position, a very discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new position.
How long does it take?
During the first consultation, an impression is made of the teeth and in the second, teeth are smoothed to make room for movement and the aligner fitted. For the duration of the treatment monthly visits approx 15mins are required to review and adjust the aligner.
Does it hurt?
Some patients will initially have a mild discomfort for the first week or so after fitting the appliance
Will the Inman Aligner affect my speech?
The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will however get used to the appliances over time and be able to speak with ease again.
