How it works
The Inman Aligner is a revolutionary appliance, described as the “missing-link” between cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, that can move teeth in the anterior region predictably, safely and quickly using a removable appliance.
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.
The product works through a squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
These forces allow for predictable rotation, protrusion and retroclination movements.
How long is the treatment with the Inman Aligner?
Most cases are completed within 6 – 18 weeks depending on the complexity of the case. For suitable cases, the Inman Aligner is almost always much faster than alternative orthodontic techniques.
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 bonded retainer or an Essix retainer.
