Inman Aligners are the perfect solution to treating crowding or protrusion of the front teeth.
What are Inman Aligners?
With the Inman aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases can be completed in 6-18 weeks and because the aligners are removable treatment can fit your lifestyle.
The Inman Aligner has nickel titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. The Inman aligner can be used as a standalone treatment or to pre-align teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as cosmetic bonding or veneers.
Will Inman Aligners be painful?
As with any orthodontic appliance, the Aligner can feel a little uncomfortable for the first few days. After a week, most patients are used to their Aligner and have no problems wearing it.
Will it affect my speech?
The Inman Aligners will affect your speech for a week or two. You will however acclimatise to the appliance over time and will be able to speak fine.
How are Inman aligners made?
Impressions will be taken so that the dental laboratory can create your custom-made Inman aligner. Once made it will be necessary to wear the aligners for 16-20 hours every day and you will need to attend the dentist every 2-3 weeks for maintenance appointments. Following treatment, it will be necessary to wear a retainer to ensure that the teeth do not move back to their original position.
