• Inman Aligners

FAQ's

  • What is an Inman Aligner?

    The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It's ideal as a stand alone treatment or to prealign teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers.

  • How does it 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.

  • How long is the treatment with the Inman Aligner?

    Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. Your Inman Aligner dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect. For suitable cases, the Inman Aligner is usually much faster than alternative orthodontic techniques.

  • What's involved in Treatment with the Inman Aligner?
    • Find a Certified dentist who will determine if the Inman Aligner is suitable for you.
    • Impressions are needed so that the lab can fabricate your custom made Inman Aligner.
    • Initial fitting of the Aligner.
    • Wear the Aligner 16-20 hours a day
    • Regular Inman checks every 2-3 weeks.
    • As with other orthodontic treatment, after treatment is completed with the Inman Aligner, retention is recommended for life to prevent relapse. Retention can come in the form of a lingually bonded retainer or an Essix retainer.
  • Who can do this treatment?

    Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them. Dr Satin Patel & Dr Hardik Patel have achieved this certification and provide Inman Aligners at SmileArt Dental.
