The Inman Aligner is mainly designed to move teeth in anterior region of your mouth within 6-18 weeks. Is a faster alternative to more expensive "Invisible Braces". It Can be removed and inserted as easily as a retainer and results can be obtained just using one 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 image below shows the 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.
- Inman aligner treatment starts with dental examination followed by impression of your teeth which will be sent for an accurate 3D printed models. The models are digitally corrected into the ideal set-up based on aesthetics and occlusion.
- your dentist will fit the retainer after series of inter-proximal reductions (IPR) recommended to obtain the space required.
- your dentist will review and carry more inter proximal reduction, if necessary, every couple of weeks until the desired result is obtained.
As with all orthodontic treatment, after treatment is completed with the Inman Aligner or Invisalign, retention is necessary to prevent
relapse. Retention can come in the form of a bonded retainer or an Essix retainer.
For both treatments we offer free teeth whitening, retainer and regular hygiene visits through out the procedure. Please call us now for your free consultation.
