On the frontline

posted 07/06/2016

If your front teeth are failing you, then why not sort them out with the revolutionary Inman Aligner. This unique orthodontic appliance is a more affordable alternative to invisible braces and offers a superb solution for mild to moderate crowding or protrusion of the front teeth.

How does it work?

It consists of nickel titanium coil springs that power a pair of aligner bows. These work against each other, but in a good way, because the inner bow pushes forwards while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth. This gentle squeezing movement gradually guides your teeth until – voilà – they’re right where they should be!

We will take impressions of your teeth so the aligner can be produced in a lab just for you. When this is ready, you will pop back to see us for the fitting. For best results, you will need to wear the aligner for 16-20 hours a day and have regular check-ups to make sure your teeth are heading the right way.

Most cases are done and dusted in 6-18 weeks, so it’s an especially speedy option, but you must wear it for the recommended time or it won’t work as quickly. You will need to take it out before you eat but use this as a good opportunity to give it a thorough clean before you pop it back in place.

Even though the Inman Aligner is a swift solution, you will have to wear a retainer following treatment to keep those newly positioned teeth exactly where they should be.

Beautiful benefits

  • Super safe and kind to teeth
  • Works in a matter of weeks
  • No unsightly brackets
  • Removable
  • Efficient results
  • Straighter teeth = healthier teeth

Any downsides?

No not really – except for a few possible teething problems, but that’s usually the case for any orthodontic treatment. The Inman Aligner may initially feel a little uncomfortable as it starts to get to work on your teeth but, after a week or so, this will subside and wearing it will be a breeze.

It may also affect your speech but you’ll soon get used to talking just like you used to as your mouth gets acquainted with its new friend.

The Inman Aligner offers a superb standalone solution or it can be used to pre-align teeth prior to further cosmetic treatment such as bonding, veneers or whitening. It is a cost effective and quick method for aligning the front teeth and can also be used for teeth that have had previous orthodontic treatment which has relapsed, and now need putting back in line.
