Patients who have spent years worrying about the appearance of their teeth could be interested in Inman Aligners. Inman Aligners are an ideal solution for teeth misalignment for adults, can be used as an alternative to dental braces, which may not be suitable for all candidates lifestyle.

In addition, the treatment can be used to correct issues with crooked teeth that people may have originally felt could only by solved by the installation of dental veneers.

Inman Aligner – Minor Tooth Movement

What are Inman aligners?

Inman aligners were introduced in dental practices in 2000, with US professionals providing the appliance to between 450 and 500 patients across the country every month.

They can be used as an alternative to braces when front teeth require proclining or retroclining and allow your dentist to achieve optimum results with the use of only one appliance.

Using the corrective method, a patient’s teeth can be guided into an ideal position in a matter of weeks, making Inman aligners the perfect solution for adults looking for a quick fix to resolve a long-term issue.

The use of the Inman aligner can return the front teeth to their most aesthetically pleasing position using minimal time and effort to ensure comfort for patients with busy work schedules.

Are there different types of Inman Aligner?

Yes, your dentist will provide the corrective fixture that is most suited to the individual needs of the patients. Often, 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 retainer to ensure the best results for the patient.
  • Clear Bow Inman Aligner is probably the most aesthetically pleasing of all the available options due to the fact that the wire on the front of the teeth has been 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 the least expensive of the options.

What are the benefits of Inman Aligners?

The overall treatment is less expensive than a range of teeth straightening braces, which can compensate for the fact that Inman Aligner’s are not entirely invisible. In addition, the corrective procedure is a more conservative process than the installation of dental veneers.

Additionally, the speed of the treatment is thought to be one of the biggest advantages associated with Inman aligners. If worn for up to 20 hours per day, patients could see improvements to their smile within six to sixteen weeks.

Inman Aligners can be removed, which makes brushing and eating a much simpler experience for wearers. As a result, image-conscious individuals do not need to worry about getting food stuck between the fixture’s wires.

The fact that the corrective accessory needs very little adjustment could also encourage busy patients to adopt the treatment, with only one appliance used throughout the process.

How does the Inman Aligner work?

Your dentist 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, with labial components reversing the same movement.

Working together, these elements push and pull together to squeeze the teeth into place and create one of the most effective solutions to misaligned teeth that can be easily controlled and adjusted to the teeth of the individual.

If necessary, your dentist will add more of the coil in a bid to carry out the procedure to the best of their ability and optimising the conditions for the highest quality results.

Is the Inman Aligner painful?

Patients are unlikely to experience any pain as a result of the fixture, which uses gentle but steady forces that make the feel of the accessory easily tolerable. Your practitioner will recommend the use of a mild painkiller for the first few days of treatment in a bid to ease any discomfort.

Initially, individuals could salivate more than usual for the first few days, with slight changes to speech during the initial period. These temporary issues are quick to fade and usually emerge as a result of the fixture’s position in the mouth.

Are there any alternative treatments to Inman Aligners?

Patients with teeth alignment issues on more than just their front teeth could be offered a range of alternative solutions by their dentists.

Invisalign acts as a removable near invisible corrective system designed to improve the appearance of the smile by resolving issues regarding overlapping and misaligned teeth. Unlike Inman Aligners, Invisalign aligns more than just the front teeth and can align the whole dentition. Invisalign is also a much more discreet appliance compared to the Inman Aligner.

Damon braces are the ideal treatment for young people who require an effective solution to crooked teeth. The procedure entails the use of low-friction mechanics to create a fast, orthodontic fixture using a slide system to ease pain. Damon braces are not as invisible as Invisalign but as they do not need as much patient compliance, they may be more suitable for younger teenage patients.
