The Inman Aligner at Surbiton dentist is a simple removable appliance that is used to align front teeth quickly and safely. Inman aligners utilise a Nickel Titanium coil spring and a labial bar to put pressure on the teeth and guide them to a new position.
The Inman Aligner is limited in the level of movement it can create. It is best suited for the misalignment of the upper and lower front teeth. It is not suitable for patients who have heavily misaligned teeth. Your dentist at the consultation appointment will be able to tell you if you could be a candidate for teeth straightening treatment with the Inman Aligner.
The treatment time varies between 6-16 weeks. Minor crowding can be corrected in 8 weeks or less. The results depend purely on how long you wear the appliances each day. The more you wear it the faster it will respond. Therefore, it is recommended to be worn around 20 hours a day.
Our Inman Aligner dentist in Surbiton can give you a realistic time scale as to how long it would take for the treatment to finish. But, in general, the result with an Inman Aligner is usually much faster than alternative orthodontic treatments.
