Introducing the Inman Aligner
Until now, the alternatives to straighten front teeth involved either long and expensive orthodontic treatments or destructive and expensive restorative treatments such as veneers or crowns. Even ultrathin veneers involve heavy reduction of natural teeth when used to align crowding or protrusion.
The Inman Aligner is a cost-effective removable orthodontic appliance that moves teeth in a fraction of the time of other systems. It aligns crowded or protruding anterior teeth with two opposing spring loaded aligner bars. This provides gentle but continuous pressure over a large range of movement. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth but it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.
People love the speed of treatment and it's changing the face of dentistry as we know it. The average treatment time is only 4-16 weeks and now with concerns over the economy it's a more justifiable expense.
So 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.
During the first consultation we look at the type and degree of crowding of your teeth and possibly take photos and/ or moulds of your teeth for further analysis. If you are suitable at a subsequent visist an impression is made of the teeth. For the duration of the treatment fortnightly visits are required to review and adjust the aligner.
