The Inman Aligner can be used to treat minor orthodontic issues, as well as relapse after prior orthodontic treatment without use of retainers. It is a removable appliance and is very discreet. The only visible sign of the aligner is a very fine wire, which runs across the front of the teeth. It works in a very similar way to a dental retainer, yet has further benefits including;
- Able to straighten minor tooth crowding and twisted teeth
- Is very comfortable in the mouth as titanium is used
- No maintenance problems
It has benefits over Invisalign such as;
- Cheaper treatment and faster results
- Only one appliance is needed
The Inman Aligner can only be used to treat the upper and lower front teeth. Invisalign may be used to treat full tooth arches.
How does the Inman Aligner work?
The device uses a coiled spring behind the teeth and a thin metal wire covering the front teeth. These elements work together in creating a push and pull system which gently and effectively move the teeth into position.

How long does treatment take?
Treatment time depends on the individual patient, but generally results can be achieved in between two to four months.The appliance takes two fifteen-minute appointments to be fitted, with one check-up per month.
Is it painful?
Like every orthodontic treatment there may be minor discomfort for the initial couple of weeks of treatment. Over the counter painkillers should be taken in this instance. There may also be more saliva produced over the first few days, and speech may be affected for a week or so.
Is the Inman aligner a new treatment?
The Inman aligner has been in use since 2000 and originated in the US, where each month about five hundred brand new patients have been treated with the Inman aligners.
Is it similar to Invisalign?
No, as it is used for minor orthodontic issues affecting the front teeth. Invisalign may work on the entire set of upper and lower teeth.
Will treatment be uncomfortable?
Treatment should be comfortable as the device is designed to very gently move teeth into place using the spring coil and wire. If there is any minor pain, over the counter painkillers are very effective.
Will I have to keep going for adjustments?
Before being fitted, the aligners are programmed to gently move the teeth into place. Depending on a patients treatment plan a general check-up to see how teeth are moving may be prescribed once a month.
