6 Month Braces | A Beautiful Smile Is Just 6 Months Away!

THE INMAN ALIGNER

The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth. You can now have your front teeth straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks. Not every case is possible and of course there are limitations, but if you are suitable you could get a fantastic smile in a matter of weeks and at far less cost. Compliance is paramount. The Aligner will only work if you wear it every day for the treatment time. Ideally patients should wear the Aligner for 20 hours a day maximum. Any less and the treatment could take longer to complete.

It should always be removed before eating and you should clean your teeth and your aligner before you refit it back into your mouth.

It is ok to take your aligner out for photos, special occasions and eating as long as this is not for longer than a few hours.

How The Inman Aligner works

The Inman Aligner utilizes a lingual coil spring that puts pressure on the teeth that need repositioning and a labial bar that reverses the same pressure. These components work together to "squeeze" teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment.

Length of treatment

Inman Aligner treatment typically takes 6-16 weeks. Simple cases can complete in a little over 1 month and more complex cases might take 4 months or so. Your Inman Aligner Dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect. Normally lower front teeth move a little faster than uppers.
However, because the Inman Aligner is so highly efficient, when a case is suitable, it works much faster than alternative orthodontics techniques. This is what makes it so revolutionary and moves the Inman Aligner into the realms of cutting edge Cosmetic Dentistry.
