The Inman Aligner is made up of nickel titanium coil springs which power two aligner bows to oppose each other. This leads the teeth into a more desirable position. The force caused by this aligner is active over a large range of movement which is why this aligner works very quickly.

Why straighten your teeth with an Inman Aligner?

Here at Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we provide the Inman Aligner as one of our orthodontic options as it has many benefits. It will improve the health of your teeth while creating an aesthetically pleasing Smile. The Inman Aligner is great for fixing crowding which can worsen over time. As our teeth move through or lives crowding can become worse which can cause teeth to wear which leads to exposure of dentine. This means that teeth can look worn and can absorb staining. Straight teeth have a lower chance of this wear which will help prevent expensive corrective treatment in the future.

Can the Inman Aligner correct all crowded teeth?

The Inman Aligner is made to straighten upper and lower front teeth only. After your consultation here at Smile Hub Dental Clinic, our dentist can decide if the Inman Aligner is the correct treatment for you and will provide a treatment plan.

How long should I wear my Inman Aligner each day?

The ideal time a person should wear their inman aligner is 20 hours a day. If you take out the aligner a lot or don’t wear it enough it can mean the treatment can take longer to finish. The inman aligner should always be taking out when a patient is eating and cleaned before putting it back in.

Can you just wear Inman Aligner at night?

Once the treatment has started it is important for a patient to wear their inman aligner every night for around 18 months. Once this has been done the patient can then wear it for two nights a week. The more often you wear it the faster and better the results will be. The inman aligner must be worn for 20 hours a day so that would mean it has to be worn at night every night for the first stage of the treatment.
