The Inman Aligner is a new and leading edge cosmetic dentistry procedure that can achieve great results in a fraction of the time of traditional orthodontic treatments. This revolutionary concept can transform the appearance of protruding or crowded front teeth in a matter of weeks. People love the speed of this treatment and it’s changing the face of traditional orthodontics.
The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with two spring loaded bars that fit easily over the front four to six teeth. Unlike a regular brace, the Inman Aligner provides a continuous pressure to ease the teeth back into place efficiently and quickly. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth, but it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.
At an initial consultation we will take photographs and sometimes impressions of your teeth. From these, calculations are made to assess your suitability for treatment and estimate the approximate length of treatment time. We will talk you through the process and create models and computer generated visuals to represent your finished straightened smile to give you a good idea of the final outcome before you even begin treatment. The aligner is fitted and teeth are smoothed to make room for movement. Whilst treatment is underway you can expect to call into the practice fortnightly to review progress and adjust the aligner.
Apart from its aesthetic benefits, especially with the new “slim” aligner, the Inman Aligner is easy to use and with practice can be quickly inserted and removed for short periods of time, to suit your lifestyle. Once the teeth have moved to the desired position – a process that usually takes between 9 and 18 weeks – they need to be held in place by a retainer, these are either fixed and very discreet or are clear rigid aligners requiring nightly wear.
Sarah has seen many patients transformed by the treatment, she says; “The Inman Aligner is a truly amazing appliance that opens up a whole range of conservative treatment options. It’s fast, affordable and kind to teeth and can be combined with whitening to deliver truly confident and beautiful smiles.”
What our patient said: “I am delighted with the results of the Inman Aligner. My smile has been transformed, and in such a short space of time. Thank you to Sarah and her team. I can highly recommend Arden House for their relaxed, friendly, efficient and professional care.”
