Inman Aligner . A quick way to straighten your front teeth...

The guide:

What is the Inman Aligner?

Until now, the alternatives to straighten front teeth involved either long and expensive orthodontic treatments or destructive and expensive restorative treatments such as veneers or crowns. Even ultrathin veneers involve heavy reduction of natural teeth when used to align crowding or protrusion.

But with the arrival of the Inman Aligner, all that has changed.

The Inman Aligner is a cost-effective removable orthodontic appliance that moves teeth in a fraction of the time of other systems. It aligns crowded or protruding anterior teeth with two opposing spring loaded aligner bars. This provides gentle but continuous pressure over a large range of movement. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth but it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.

People love the speed of treatment and it’s changing the face of dentistry as we know it. The average treatment time is only 4-16 weeks and now with concerns over the economy it’s a more justifiable expense.

Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them. Dr Alex Al-Shaikh at Alexandra Road has achieved this certification and provides Inman Aligners, here in Leeds.

Dr Alex Al-Shaikh; “The Inman Aligner is the greatest innovation in dentistry of recent years. It’s fast, affordable and kind to teeth. It really is the best way to straighten crowded front teeth.”

Do not forget that orthodontics is for life. You will need a retainer (metal wire bonded behind the teeth which have been moved, or a clear mouth guard to wear at night time) to hold the teeth in the desired position.

Am I suitable for an Inman Aligner?

A dental professional opinion is required to tell you which orthodontic options are suitable, how long the treatment will take (in months), how many appointments you will need and the social implications (i.e. speech impairments - lisping etc.)

If you have poor oral hygiene or gum disease this must be looked at and stabilised before Dr Alex Al-Shaikh can even consider orthodontics.

How long does it take to work?

Normally most inman aligner treatments are complete within 4-6 months. The time will depend on how complex the case is and how committed you are to wearing the aligner.
