Inman Aligner at Liverpool Dental Spa
The removable Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for patients looking for fast, effective teeth straightening. It can correct front tooth irregularities, without the need for fixed wires and tooth brackets.
How does the Inman Aligner work?
It is the gentle combination of a discreet bar across the front teeth and a coiled mechanism at the back of the teeth that makes Inman Aligner treatment so effective. Teeth can be gently 'squeezed' into their new position within a few weeks.
This utilisation of opposing forces allows for a shorter treatment time, when compared to that experienced with other brace systems. Each aligner is custom-made for the individual, created from impressions and images taken at the practice. This is to ensure ideal fit and optimum tooth movement.
How long does Inman Aligner treatment take?
The Inman Aligner is incredibly quick and most people will achieve the results they desire from 6-16 weeks.
Who is suitable for treatment?
This form of orthodontic treatment is not suitable for everyone – it is best suited to clients with mild misalignment of the front teeth. Patients with more complex cases, such as heavily crowded or gapped teeth, can be provided with alternate solutions by our dental team.
What are the advantages?
- Fast treatment: It is one of the fastest brace systems available, with results visible in a matter of weeks. It is perfect for patients looking for straighter teeth in time for a special event.
- High level of discretion: Although the Inman Aligner is not as discreet as invisible aligner systems, it is a great deal more indiscernible than fixed brace systems.
- Oral hygiene is easy to maintain: Traditional fixed braces can lead to oral hygiene difficulties, when food and plaque become lodged around the wires and brackets. The Inman Aligner, however, is completely removable so you can take the appliance out for eating and cleaning. This allows for a greater level of cleanliness and means your teeth will not suffer during treatment.
- Lower cost: As the Inman Aligner only uses one device the price for treatment is a lot lower than other removable aligner systems, which use several aligners to move your teeth into place.
