The Inman Aligner is a simple and effective way to realign your front top and bottom teeth.
The aligner itself is a removable appliance which may be used as a standalone teeth straightening procedure, or as a preliminary measure before whitening, bonding or minimal veneers.
The device sits around your teeth, with nickel titanium coil springs which press against two aligner bows, and is worn for around 16 – 20 hours a day. This creates a small amount of constant pressure which gently guides your teeth into the desired position, for a relatively quick result. The bulk of the device sits on the inner part of the tooth, making it as inconspicuous as possible.
The Inman Aligner process
Your dentist will assess your suitability for the device and advise on treatment costs and duration before we begin.
If the Inman Aligner is a suitable teeth straightening option for you, impressions will be taken to make your custom appliance, after which you’ll be required to attend an appointment for fitting.
Once the Inman Aligner has been fitted you will have check-ups every two to three weeks to track your progress.
After your teeth have been completely straightened, you will be given a retainer to ensure your teeth remain in position after treatment.
