Inman AlignersTM are removable, virtually unnoticeable appliances which can adjust your front 6 teeth.
The Inman AlignersTM can address mild orthodontic issues that affect the front, upper or lower teeth. The aligners can provide a stand-alone treatment to correct minor crowding, rotation or protrusion of the teeth or to straighten crooked teeth. The system can also be utilised to pre-align teeth before additional cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers or smile makeovers.
The Inman AlignersTM mechanism is powered by nickel titanium coil springs on the inside of the appliance. The springs are positioned behind the teeth and generate the pressure needed to move the teeth. A clear bar is placed over the front of the teeth which creates a piston-like action. Together, the components pull and push to gently squeeze the teeth into the correct position. The use of a combined force makes the procedure quick yet gentle.
Bespoke aligners are fabricated from models or impressions of your teeth and your detailed prescription. The aligners must be worn for almost 24 hours daily for optimal results. Follow-up appointmentscan be set-up every two to three weeks to monitor if the treatment is progressing as scheduled. The treatment typically takes between 6 to 18 weeks. Once the treatment is complete, a retention system is recommended to prevent the teeth from relapsing to their former position.
In most cases, a single appliance is required throughout the procedure, making Inman AlignersTM a cost-effective option. The aligners can be removed for brushing,flossing and eating or for special occasions. As a result, the treatment can proceed with minimal interference to your lifestyle.
