Inman Aligner

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is an ideal removable solution for adults with misaligned front teeth. It can be used as an alternative to dental braces, which may not be suitable for all lifestyles.

Inman Aligner – Minor Tooth Movement

What are Inman aligners?

Inman removable aligners are used when only the front teeth require corrections. The use of the Inman aligner can return the front teeth to their most aesthetically pleasing position using minimal time and effort.

Are there different types of Inman Aligner?

The correct type of aligner will be provided by our highly specialised staff.  This could be one of four possible types.

  • Standard Inman Aligners are designed for the correction of maxillary and mandibular incisors (front teeth), with coil components used to correct tooth rotations and overcrowding.
  • Invisible Inman Aligners use lingual active components to attach to an invisible aligner.
  • Clear Bow Inman Aligner is probably the most aesthetically pleasing options due to the front wire being eliminated.
  • White Bow Inman Aligner disguises the wire while still allowing the use of a hard acrylic. Although this method is more noticeable than the clear bow, it is also less expensive.

What are the benefits of Inman Aligners?

The overall treatment is less expensive than a range of teeth straightening braces, and can be a much faster process. If worn for up to 20 hours per day, patients could see improvements within 6-16 weeks.

Inman Aligners can be removed, which makes brushing and eating a much simpler experience for wearers. The fact that the Inman aligner needs very little adjustment could also encourage busy patients to adopt the treatment.

How does the Inman Aligner work?

Our orthodontist will use a coil spring to create the gentle forces needed to move the teeth into their ideal position. A lingual component then creates a piston-like action. Working together, these elements push and pull together to squeeze the teeth into place.

Is the Inman Aligner painful?

Patients are unlikely to experience pain as a result of the treatment because it uses gentle but steady forces that make the feel of the accessory easily tolerable. We recommend the use of a mild painkiller for the first few days of treatment to ease any discomfort.

Are there any alternative treatments to Inman Aligners?

Invisalign is an invisible, removable aligner designed to improve the appearance of the smile. Unlike Inman Aligners, Invisalign can align all the teeth, not just the smile zone.

Damon braces are the ideal treatment for people needing a fixed brace solution. The procedure uses a unique slide system to ease pain. Damon braces are not as invisible as Invisalign but they do not need as much patient compliance.

Incognito lingual braces are fixed at the back of teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing solution. However, they do cost more than the other brace options.
