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