Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is another orthodontic appliance that can fix protruding or crowded teeth in the front of your mouth. The removable appliance aligns front teeth using the forces in the mouth and results are usually seen in a few weeks.

The device works by using nickel titanium coil springs to power its two aligner bows, gently opposing one another and guiding the teeth into position. This results in a large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly. In most cases, treatment is complete within 6-18 weeks, but for effective results, the Inman Aligner has to be worn for 16-20 hours a day.

Our dentists are qualified to deliver Inman Aligner treatment and will be able to determine whether this type of orthodontics is suited to your needs.

After an initial fitting, you will need to come back every two to three weeks for check-ups and to ensure your teeth are moving correctly.

An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a subspecialty area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets that apply force to the teeth to move them into a particular position. The discipline has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot shorter and more comfortable than it was in the past.

Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other should consider having orthodontic treatment. Treatment does require good oral hygiene habits by the patient and regular visits to the practice for check-ups and adjustments. Depending on the extent of the alignment required with your teeth, treatment can take from several months to a year with reliable results. Thanks to fixed permanent retention you can be assured that your teeth won't move after treatment is completed.

The main benefit of having orthodontic treatment is that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
