The Inman aligner is a removable appliance that can offer a faster alternative to treat tooth misalignment. Generally Inman aligners are used to treat the front teeth and can be described as a mix between removable aligners and a more traditional fixed braces.
Inman aligners are removable so that you can eat and clean your teeth as normal, you’ll also only have to wear the one appliance rather than a series of aligners every few weeks.The Inman aligner is the ideal solution for a patient who has crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It is currently known for it’s efficiency and the value for money, with just one appliance being needed in the majority of cases.
Generally your front teeth can be guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks, with the majority of cases being completed in 6-18 weeks.The fact that teeth continues to move throughout your life means that crowding will tend to get worse over time.
Uneven teeth are also prone to uneven wear which causes exposure of dentine that wears fast and absorbs stain.
