Inman Aligners

Inman Aligners

The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It is really efficient, very safe and great value. With the patented Inman Aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-18 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.

What is an Inman Aligner?

The 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 pre-align teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers.

How do Inman Aligners work?

The Inman Aligner has 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.

How long is the Inman Aligner treatment?

Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. Our Inman Aligner dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect.

What’s involved in the Inman Aligner treatment?

  • Impressions are needed so that the lab can fabricate your custom made Inman Aligner.
  • Initial fitting of the Aligner.
  • Wear the Aligner 16-20 hours a day
  • Regular Inman checks every 2-3 weeks.
  • As with other orthodontic treatment, after treatment is completed with the Inman Aligner, retention is recommended for life to prevent relapse. Retention can come in the form of a lingually bonded retainer or an Essix retainer.

What are the benefits of an Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It is really efficient and excellent value as in most cases just one appliance is needed.

Alignment can be carried out as a standalone treatment or before whitening and bonding for an ideal minimally-invasive path to a great new smile!

Why straighten your teeth with an Inman Aligner?

Aligning your front teeth will not only improve aesthetics but will also benefit the long-term health of your teeth. Teeth continue to move throughout one’s life so crowding tends to worsen over time. Uneven teeth are prone to uneven wear causing exposure of dentine that wears fast and absorbs stain. Straight teeth are far less likely to suffer from this ageing effect and expensive corrective treatments can be avoided.

Can the Inman Aligner correct all crowded teeth?

The Inman Aligner is designed to treat the upper and lower front teeth only. After an evaluation, your dentist can determine if the Inman Aligner is right for your particular case and will recommend treatment options.

Are Inman Aligners comfortable?

As with any orthodontic appliance, the Aligner can feel a little uncomfortable for the first few days. After a week, most patients are used to their Aligner and have no problems wearing it.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
