Those who suffer from misaligned teeth or protruding front teeth often benefit from choosing the aligner, while those needing mild orthodontic correction are usually the most suitable for receiving this type of treatment. Within six to eighteen weeks patients have straighter teeth for an enhanced appearance.
The unique way in which the Inman Aligner® functions is by applying gentle orthodontic pressure. Two aligner bows, an inner and an outer, are powered by nickel-titanium coil springs moving against each other to reposition the front teeth. As teeth move into their new position they are aligned symmetrically and appear straighter when smiling.
If the aligner is found to be an appropriate treatment, impressions are made of your teeth and then sent to a laboratory so that your brace can be custom-made. When ready, the Inman Aligner® is fitted and adjusted for comfort. The discreet brace is worn for 16 to 20 hours per day and will not be obvious to others.
Appointments are set every 2 to 3 weeks to allow the clinician to monitor treatment progress. To avoid relapse, a retainer is normally provided and will ensure that teeth stay in their newly straightened position.
The aligner is discreet, fast-acting and less expensive than most traditional brace treatments. The teeth straightening results are noticeable on treatment completion and give individuals greater confidence when smiling. Dental alignment through the Inman Aligner® improves bite function and appearance.
