Inman and removable aligners – for rapid results
If you have previously had orthodontic treatment but have noticed your teeth have started to slip back into their original positions, don’t despair. You won’t have to have full orthodontic treatment again. Instead, Inman aligners are specifically designed for adult relapse cases and will be able to correct your teeth in as little as 6 to 16 weeks.
The Inman aligner process
Inman aligners are designed to fit over your upper and lower teeth to move the front teeth into alignment. They work using a gentle pressure system generated by nickel titanium coil springs. These springs cause two opposing aligner bows to squeeze together, working to move your teeth into position.
If this orthodontic treatment is suitable for you, we’ll take an impression of your teeth which is used to custom make your Inman aligners. To ensure treatment is effective and to allow you to see results in the short time frame, it is recommended you wear your aligners for 16 – 20 hours per day. You will be able to take them out to eat, brush and floss.
