The Inman Aligner is a unique and customised orthodontic appliance that offers one of the easiest and stress free ways to efficiently straighten crooked teeth.
The way in which the Inman Aligner works is by applying pressure to the teeth through 2 different mechanisms; first, a lingual coil spring designed to apply force onto the teeth being corrected, and secondly a labial bar that works to push back that same force. This push-and-pull technique gets the teeth into alignment by almost squeezing them together.
The Inman Aligner offers a quick and efficient way to combat the problem of crooked teeth, with this treatment averaging at around 6 – 16 weeks to obtain the result you want.
Much like every other orthodontic appliance, the Inman Aligner sometimes leaves the patient with a slightly uncomfortable feeling and in the first few days will also affect your speech, but both of these problems will generally only last up to a week. After this time, the majority of patients experience no problems and get on with normal day-to-day life as usual.
The availability of this treatment depends on each individual patient. After a free consultation, it may turn out that your teeth are too misshapen for the Inman Aligner to produce any long-lasting or effective result. If this is the case straight teeth are still a possibility, and you may opt for one of our other options.
In your consultation, you will be informed of your suitability and all the practicalities involved with this treatment.
