Inman ALigner

The Fast and Efficient Way to Improve Your Smile

The Inman Aligner is a revolutionary, yet simple, removable appliance used to straighten front teeth quickly and safely.

Similar to the Invisalign system, the Inman Aligner focuses primarily on moving your teeth quickly and effectively, usually in a matter of weeks, and without the use of fixed metal braces, to create a more beautiful smile.

It’s designed for straightening the front teeth only (as opposed to realigning all the teeth) and for treating crowding, protrusions, rotations, crossbites or for correcting orthodontic relapses.

The Process

How the Inman Aligner System Works

The Inman Aligner uses nickel titanium coil springs to power two aligner bows that gently push back against each other to guide your teeth into place.

Custom Made

Once initial impressions are made of your teeth, your North Hill dentist will custom make your Inman Aligner. Then they will fit your new aligner which you will need to wear for 16-20 hours every day.

Regular Visits

We ask that you come in every 2-3 weeks so that we can check on your progress and make sure there are no issues that need to be resolved.

After about 6- 18 months the treatment will be over and you’ll have a brand new smile to enjoy.

Aftercare

Keeping Things Straight

1

Once your Inman teeth straightening treatment is complete we will fit you with a retainer for you to wear at night to make sure your teeth don’t return to their former position.

2

Of course you should follow a regular oral health routine, including brushing and flossing and regular visits to our North Hill Dental hygienist, as well as eating smart and protecting your teeth during contact sports and other rough activities.

3

During your regular dental check-ups we’ll monitor the alignment of your teeth and make sure you continue to be happy with the results.

FAQs

Will the Inman Aligner affect my speech?

Initially, for maybe a week or two, you will likely find that your speech is affected- some people describe it as trying to talk with marbles in their mouths. However, the more you talk, the faster you will get used to it and the faster you will be able to speak naturally.

How long does the Inman Aligner treatment take?

Unlike traditional fixed metal braces, the Inman Aligner system can straighten your front teeth in a matter of weeks compared to years. Depending on how much movement is required, you should see amazing results in as little as 6 weeks and usually no longer than 18 weeks.

Will the Inman Aligner hurt my mouth?

The Inman Aligner applies constant and steady forces to your teeth, but they are gentle and you’ll be pleased to know that most people have very little discomfort. Mild painkillers, such as ibuprofen or paracetamol, can be used for a few days after starting treatment to help with any discomfort.
