Ideal for the treatment of orthodontic relapse
As time goes by, your teeth may tend to move which in many cases can cause your front top and bottom teeth to become crooked. At first glance, you must think you need braces, however with the patented Inman Aligner your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position quickly and effectively in a matter of weeks .This occasionally happens for adults who had orthodontic treatment when they were younger. The most common result is some crowding or rotations of front teeth.
Is the Inman Aligner comparable to Invisalign?
Invisalign is made of a specialised plastic hence the forces are low and the treatment slower. Inman Aligner incorporates tiny Nickel Titanium springs that are able to maintain a higher constant tension. The inman aligner is used mainly for treating front teeth only and is not suitable for all patients. The treatment time with the Inman Aligner is usually faster than clear braces.
Will treatment with the Inman Aligner be uncomfortable?
Due to the gentle but steady orthodontic forces generated, the appliances are easily tolerated. It may be wise to take some mild pain killers for the first few days while you adjust some patients have mentioned that they have mild tenderness when taking the Inman Aligner in and out when they start treatment.
Will the Inman Aligner affect my speech?
Yes. The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will however acclimatise to the appliance over time and be able to speak fine with them in place. Remember you can always remove them if you need to for public speaking events.
Will I need to see you frequently for adjustments?
The Inman Aligners are pre-programmed to reduce the need for multiple visits to our clinic. At our Cambridge Inman Aligner studio we will prescribe a treatment to suite your needs.
How does the Inman Aligner work
The Inman Aligner utilises a lingual coil spring that puts pressure on the teeth that need repositioning and a labial bar that reverses the same pressure. These components work together to "squeeze" teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment. Like anything foreign to your mouth, it may cause you to salivate more than usual for 24 to 48 hours and could affect your speech for 7 to 10 days. You have the option of not wearing the appliance, however, the longer you wear the Inman Aligner the quicker the results. It is recommended that you wear the appliance for at least 16 to 20 hours a day.
Won’t my teeth move back?
A fixed retainer can be bonded to the back of the front teeth to retain the result. This orthodontic wire is very thin and cannot be seen from the front.
