Inman Aligner York

Straight teeth with the Inman Aligner treatment in York in as little as 8 weeks

What is the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a modern orthodontic teeth straightening aligner used to correct minor misalignments of the front teeth over a relatively short time-scale, we have found some orthodontic treatments taking as little as six weeks. The Inman Aligner is used specifically in relation to straightening of the front teeth – for in-depth advice on whether this is the best orthodontic solution for you, arrange a free consultation with our Orthodontists in York.

How does it work?

Think of the Inman Aligner as an removable appliance which applies pressure to both the fronts and backs of the teeth being realigned using two spring loaded bars. The Inman Aligner imparts a continuous, gentle squeezing force which gradually moves the front teeth into a straighter alignment.

What are the main benefits of the Inman Aligner?

Whilst more visibly noticeable than some other types of orthodontic aligners, the Inman Aligner is cost effective and has a strong record for delivering quick and satisfying results. As noted above, the clear brace aligner is removable, and is also known for its high level of suitability for those who have undergone orthodontic procedures in the past and experienced some degree of orthodontic relapse.

Is the Inman Aligner right for me?

The Inman aligner is a well branded and marketed orthodontic system, it is a simple yet very effective device; however, case selection in the application of the dental brace is key to achieving that great end result. It’s really important to have a detailed assessment with the orthodontist to see if the inman aligner is best suited to your case. Although rapid teeth straightening results can be achieved, the removable brace itself can feel a bit bulky and like with most things will take some time to acclimatise to. Nonetheless, patients who have had this treatment feel that on the whole their teeth straightening result was very much worth while.

Does the Inman Aligner need to be worn 24/7?

It’s advisable to wear the Inman Aligner orthodontic device at least 20 hours per day during the course, in order to ensure the orthodontic treatment has the best possible chance to be fully effective over the expected timescale. The possibility of removing the Inman Aligner for a limited amount of time each day allows users have the opportunity to eat meals, celebrate special occasions, socialise and brush their teeth without having the brace.

How many aligners will I have to use during a procedure?

In the majority of cases only one teeth straightening aligner is used throughout a procedure, removing the hassle of changing your aligner on a regular basis. However further additional clear orthodontic aligners can be used at the end of treatment to fine tune orthodontic movements to a perfect finish.
