Inman Aligners

The Inman Aligners are revolutionary and simple removable appliances that are used to align the misaligned front teeth quickly and safely.

The revolutionary 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 tooth coloured materials to achieve better shaped teeth, or minimal veneers. Also Teeth whitening after straightening produces stunning results.

How does it work

The Inman Aligner has highly elastic 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 here 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, thus straightening out the misaligned teeth. It can be employed on upper or lower teeth.

How long is the treatment?

Most cases are completed within 6-20 weeks. Your 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.

Does it hurt?

We have found that treatment with an Inman Aligner can cause some initial discomfort to the patient in the first 3-7 days. However, the level of discomfort is very similar to that experienced by patients who have been fitted with a traditional wire and bracket brace.

How visible is the inman aligner.

While the device is still visible, it is less visible than a conventional brace. But the Inman Aligner is removable, and if you need to take it out for a special occasions, you can.
