What are Inman Aligner™ braces?
The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely – a perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth.
It’s ideal as a standalone treatment or to pre-align teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as veneers.
It is important to firstly establish if you are suitable for Inman Aligner treatment and if you are able to wear the appliance for the specified time frame.
Most cases complete in 6-18 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.
How does it Inman Aligner™ braces work?
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.
These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.
The video shows the squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth.
The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
What’s involved in Treatment with the Inman Aligner?
Dr Somana is a certified Inman Aligner dentist and will establish if the Inman Aligner is a suitable treatment option for you.
3D scans are taken of your teeth and sent to our lab to fabricate your custom made Inman Aligner.
Once fabricated Dr Somana will show you how to wear the Aligner and caution you to wear the Aligner for 16-20 hours a day.
You should only remove the Aligner for eating and drinking. This will ensure the best results over a shorter period of time.
You will then have to be monitored every 2-3 weeks to ensure the teeth are moving as desired.
At the completion of treatment, as with other orthodontic treatment, you will require either a clear retainer or a bonded wire behind your front teeth to help keep them in place.
