The Inman Aligner is a removable appliance that can correct protruding or crowded teeth in as little as 6-18 weeks – a fraction of the time taken to correct such problems with traditional appliances.
State-of-the-art technology to guide your teeth into a desired position
The Inman Aligner applies gradual and continuous pressure to your teeth. Using nickel titanium coil springs that work in opposite directions, your teeth are guided into their new position over a large range of movement, accounting for why the Inman Aligner works so quickly and effectively. The gentle pressure applied makes this method of treatment one of the kindest to your teeth. The flexibility offered by the Inman Aligner is popular with adults who work in client and customer-facing work roles as the appliance can be removed for presentations or important events, should you wish your smile to appear unaltered for these occasions during treatment – note that this will not jeopardise your treatment.
The easy steps involved with Inman Aligner treatment
- Initial consultation – your dentist at Arden House will assess relevant aspects of your dental and medical history to ensure the Inman Aligner is the right course of treatment for you.
- Following this your dentist can take photographs and/or impressions of your teeth in order for the appliance to be created for your exact tooth structure.
- You will be able to see a prospective, computer generated image of how your teeth will look post-treatment as Arden House have invested in Digital Smile Design technology – you can read more about this here.
- Once the appliance has been created based on the impressions your orthodontist took of your teeth, we can show you how to fit the appliance.
- You will need to wear the appliance 16-20 hours each day – this gives patients plenty of flexibility to brush and eat with ease.
- We will keep an eye on your progress and ask patients to visit us for check-ups ever 2-3 weeks during the treatment period.
- Once the brace-wearing period is complete, you will need to wear a retainer in order to prevent your teeth from shifting back into their original position.
