Being able to push one part and pull another part necessitates fast moving of your teeth, typically in only a few weeks.

And here’s what this happy patients said about treatment:
Inman aligner versus Invisalign
Because the Inman aligner has a revolutionary spring mechanism which is active it can straighten teeth much faster than Invisalign braces. The front section of the Inman aligner is also clear making them as invisible as Invisalign, at least for the front six teeth. Both Inman aligner and Invisalign are removable orthodontics and will work best if you keep them in place for at least 20 hours per day, only removing them to clean.
The Inman aligner generally has a low-cost than Invisalign as it does not require multiple aligners to straighten teeth.
What is the procedure to get quick straight teeth with the Inman aligner?
- You come in for an initial assessment to discuss suitability and viability.
- Initial impressions are taken and sent to the laboratory to have your orthodontic brace constructed.
- Approximately 2 weeks after the impressions have been taken you return to have your braces fitted
- After approximately one month you return for a review appointment
- 16 weeks later, approximately, your treatment will be complete
- You smile again with absolute confidence!
Dental braces versus veneers
Wherever possible your dentist or orthodontist will prefer to use dental braces rather than veneers. Dental braces move your natural teeth with out having to remove any healthy tooth structure. Very often, dental veneers will require a thin layer to be removed from the front of your tooth, this process is irreversible. Dental braces are the most minimally invasive way to get straighter teeth but do take longer than having dental veneers which can be fitted in as little as two weeks.
Can Inman aligner just be worn at night?
Treatment times for the Inman aligner are estimated on the assumption that you wear your aligner for at least 20 hours per day. If you wear your aligner for less time than this then the treatment time will be extended significantly. If you only wear your aligner at night, typically eight hours thing you would at least be doubling the amount of time that your treatment takes. If you intend to only wear your Inman aligner at night then it might be best to consider another form of orthodontic treatment.
What does Inman aligner looked like?
The Inman aligner is held in with wire hooks, known as clasps which hold onto your back teeth. The active part of the aligner is on your front teeth and clear, making it almost invisible.
Getting braces as an adult
In years gone by getting braces as an adult was difficult. Many orthodontists only offered treatment to young people in their teenage years. Trends and understanding of orthodontics have changed and it is now understood that teeth can be moved right the way through into adulthood. When this is coupled with rapid braces and clear braces such as the Inman aligner then having braces as an adult is now something which is far more available to everyone.
