Inman Aligner

Effective treatment for misaligned front teeth

The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance designed to correct misaligned teeth or adult relapse from previous orthodontic treatment.

It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, but can be taken out for important occasions.

The Inman Aligner is used for treating the top and bottom front teeth rather than full arches.

What are the advantages of the Inman Aligner?

  • Can correct moderate crowding and rotation of the teeth
  • More comfortable to wear as the spring is made from titanium rather than stainless steel
  • Has no retention problems
  • Carries less hassle and expense in a shorter treatment time than other orthodontic options
  • Achieves great results with just one appliance

How does the treatment work?

The Inman Aligner uses a lingual coil spring to put pressure on the back of the teeth that need repositioning. A bar is placed across the front of the teeth to reverse the same pressure. These components work together to ‘squeeze’ the teeth together, pushing and pulling them into alignment to achieve the desired outcome.

Frequently asked questions

  • How long does Inman Aligner treatment take?

    Fitting the aligner takes two 30 minute appointments, followed by 15 minute monthly check ups. Treatment can be completed in as little as 8-16 weeks.

  • Is the Inman Aligner painful?

    You may feel some discomfort when the aligner is first fitted, but this can be managed by over the counter painkillers. It will take some time to get used to the feeling of the aligner in your mouth, and you may find you salivate more than usual for 24-48 hours, but this will be short lived.

  • Will the Inman Aligner affect my speech?

    Yes, it is common for the Inman Aligner to cause you some difficulties with speaking for the first week or two after it is fitted. However, you will quickly become accustomed to the feeling of the aligner and be able to speak normally with it in place.
