Introducing the Inman Aligner: what is it and how does it work?

The Inman Aligner is a removable brace, which is often recommended for patients who don’t require a vast amount of movement. Ideally suited to patients with minor issues, as well as those who have experienced relapse after previous treatment, this is a brace that achieves results in a matter of weeks, rather than months or years.
This brace is different to the traditional fixed braces many of us are familiar with. Comprising nickel titanium springs, which support the aligner bows that sit on the teeth, the brace generates forces, which effectively squeeze the teeth, moving them into the desired position. The two bows of the aligner are located opposite each other. The inner bow pushes in a forward direction, while the outer structure draws the teeth back. This combination generates rapid movement. Although the forces are powerful, they are also gentle, and they provide an expansive range of movement, which cuts treatment times.


What does treatment involve?

The treatment process for the Inman Aligner is very straightforward. Before you begin, our dentist will analyse your bite and carry out some tests and checks to make sure that this is a suitable treatment option for you. If the Inman Aligner is appropriate, we will create impressions of your teeth, which will be used to craft your bespoke aligners. Once your aligner is ready, the dentist will fit it and they will give you information and advice to help you care for your brace and get the most out of it. We recommend wearing your aligners for around 16-20 hours per day, every day. During treatment, your dentist will arrange routine checks every 3 weeks to see how you’re getting on. After treatment, we will provide you with a retainer to hold the teeth in position.


How long will treatment take?

The Inman Aligner is one of the speediest orthodontic solutions available. Some cases can be completed within just 6 weeks, while most will be finished within 16 weeks. Your dentist will be able to give you an accurate prediction once you’ve had your consultation.


Is the Inman Aligner right for me?

This treatment is not suited to all orthodontic patients, and it’s designed to tackle minor issues with a focus on the front teeth. If you have mild crowding, or your front teeth protrude slightly, this could be an ideal solution for you. If you are interested in the Inman Aligner, the best thing do is call and arrange a consultation. Our friendly dentists will be able to examine your mouth and determine which treatment options would be best for you.
