This is a ground-breaking orthodontic appliance which provides a quick and simple alternative to traditional fixed braces. The Inman aligner appliance is made up of two component parts: a spring coil sat on the inside of the teeth and a metal bar running the length of the front teeth. The Inman aligner manoeuvres the teeth efficiently but gently, using forces generated by the two component parts to push and pull teeth into position.
This is an excellent treatment for people who require minor orthodontic adjustment, or those who have had other treatment and want to prevent relapse. The aligner is a removable device and works extremely quickly, with results visible in a matter of weeks.
Uncomplicated treatment: straightening teeth with the Inman aligner requires wearing a removable device for a set period of time every day. There isn’t any need for adjustments or metal wires; the treatment works very quickly and there is little pain involved.

Phases of treatment
The Inman aligner is a removable orthodontic device that uses forces generated by a coiled spring and a metal bar to move the teeth into position.
Treatment times are much shorter than traditional braces and you can expect to see results in the region of 16 weeks.
The aligner is intended to move the teeth quickly but gently. It may take a bit of getting used to but you should only experience minimum levels of pain and discomfort.
You can take the Inman aligner out to eat and drink, so you can stick to your normal diet without worrying about damaging your brace or getting food trapped.
The treatment is intended to correct minor teeth straightening problems. If you have a more complex prescription which requires greater movement, we will advise an alternative treatment.
The Inman aligner works by generating forces to effectively pull and push the teeth into place. This is done by way of a coiled spring and metal bar, which make up the apparatus and move teeth into the correct position.
You are allowed to remove the Inman aligner to perform teeth cleaning.
