The Inman aligner is a custom-made unique orthodontic appliance that is designed to straighten front teeth fast when there is minor to moderate dental crowding and you do not need your back teeth to be moved.
Being completely removable, you have the freedom to take it out of your mouth when you like and it align your front teeth quicker than any clear aligner system on the market. When you also have minor front crowding, then the Inman aligner can be designed to incorporate a special expansion plate to widen your upper jaw at the same time. The before and after photographs are from the Inman company website showing how in just 9 weeks this patient achieved straight teeth.
From the company website:
“The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It is really fast, very safe and great value. With the patented Inman Aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-18 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.”[youtube id=”tnOjbJ4nElI” width=”600″ height=”350″ autoplay=”no” api_params=”” class=””]This has been our experience as well with most cases finished in 8 − 12 weeks. Occasionally, a expander may be required for a few weeks before Inman aligners are issued to minimise the need for any adjustment to the front teeth themselves (this is called IPR or Interpoximal reduction which is a process or tooth slenderising). In our clinical experience, no IPR or very little is needed as we always aim to provide the necessary space needed for the teeth BEFORE they are moved into position.
