The Inman Aligner is one of our most impressive orthodontic treatments, but what’s so good about it and could it be the perfect solution for your orthodontic needs?
About the Inman Aligner
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic aligner that takes a matter of weeks to straighten the front teeth. This treatment was pioneered in the USA and has since enjoyed success all the over the world.
The Inman Aligner presents a quick, simple and discreet alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who require minor correction. It focuses on the front teeth and uses gentle forces to squeeze the teeth into position.
This treatment offers flexibility and increased convenience, as the appliance is removable. This means that you can eat without any worries, clean your teeth as normal and take your brace out if you want to look your best for a special occasion.
Is the Inman Aligner invisible?
Invisible aligners are all the rage at the moment and while the Inman Aligner isn’t fully invisible, it is a far more discreet option than fixed braces. This aligner features a metal bar and a coiled spring, which generate tooth movement. The metal bar is visible, but it is fine and treatment time is so short that you’ll barely notice it.
How long does treatment take?
Speed is one of the main advantages of this amazing treatment and most cases are complete within just 16 weeks. There may be slight variations in the treatment time, as every patient has unique needs.
Is this treatment suitable for me?
If you have minor orthodontic issues that involve your front teeth or you have suffered relapse since you had treatment, the Inman Aligner could be an ideal match. In order to determine if this option is viable for you, we will carry out tests and analyse the bite during the consultation.

The Inman Aligner is a popular orthodontic treatment that offers a contemporary alternative to traditional braces, for patients with minor issues that affect the front teeth. This treatment works fast and could be the perfect choice for you if you’re seeking a rapid remedy for mild crowding, small spaces or minor misalignment.
What is the Inman Aligner?
This removable straightening appliance aligns the teeth using unique forces. There are two main components, a metal bar and a coiled spring. These parts produce forces that push and pull the teeth, allowing them to move in the appropriate direction. The aligner sits on the teeth and only visible part is a thin metal bar, which runs along the front teeth.
This innovative treatment works by generating gentle forces to re-position and re-align the teeth. As the aligner is removable, you can continue to eat and brush your teeth as normal.
How long does treatment take?
This is one of the speediest solutions around and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you notice results. Within weeks, you will be able to see changes, and most cases are complete within just 4 months.
Am I a good match for the Inman Aligner?
This treatment is ideal for patients who have minor problems that require a small amount of movement. It is geared towards treating issues with the front teeth, such as slightly crooked teeth or mild crowding. This system can also be hugely beneficial to treat cases of relapse when the teeth move out of position following previous treatment. To find out if you are a good candidate for the Inman Aligner, simply call and book a consultation.

If you have minor orthodontic issues and you are searching for a solution that offers speed, discretion and minimal hassle, look no further than the Inman Aligner. This amazing treatment straightens the teeth in just a few weeks and is much less noticeable than traditional fixed braces.
About the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a treatment named after its inventor. It was pioneered in America and is now extremely popular in the UK as well. This treatment provides a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who only require minor correction, and it focuses on the front teeth to minimise treatment time and enhance aesthetics.
The Inman Aligner slides over the teeth and it is made from two major components: a coiled spring that sits behind the front teeth, and a thin metal bar that can be seen lying along the front teeth. These parts create forces that work together to pull and push the teeth, squeezing them and moving them into the right position. The aligner is removable.
What are the benefits of the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a more discreet option than fixed braces, but perhaps its main selling point is speed; with this treatment, you can take your braces off and enjoy your new smile after just 16 weeks. The aligner is also removable so you have freedom and the ability to eat and clean your teeth as normal and it uses the latest technology to prevent pain.
Is this treatment the ideal choice for me?
If you have minor issues with your front teeth or you have previously had treatment and have noticed signs of relapse, the Inman Aligner could be the perfect choice for you. Call us and arrange a consultation to find out more and see if this could be the perfect choice for you!

Most people assume that orthodontic treatment takes years, but at Clifton Dental of Bristol we are delighted to offer an extremely swift treatment, which straightens the teeth in just 4 months. The Inman Aligner is a removable brace, which takes just 6-16 weeks to move the teeth and create a healthier looking, more attractive smile. This appliance uses forces generated by a coiled spring and a metal bar to squeeze the teeth, causing them to move in the right direction. Unlike fixed braces, the Inman Aligner is removable, which makes eating and cleaning the teeth completely hassle-free and the metal bar, which runs along the front teeth, is much more discreet than a conventional brace. The Inman Aligner works very quickly for two main reasons; firstly, the technology involved accelerates tooth movement and secondly, the treatment is aimed specifically at patients with minor orthodontic issues. Dr Neil Gerrard is one of the UK’s first dentists to offer this incredible treatment and we have helped hundreds of patients to enjoy a beaming, straight smile. As well as offering comfort, convenience and speed, the Inman Aligner is also much less expensive than many of the other cosmetic braces on the market. If you’ve been looking for a swift solution for slightly crooked tooth or mild crowding, this could be an excellent option.

If you suffer from having teeth at the front of your mouth that stick out rather prominently, they can seriously hinder your confidence when trying to express yourself in public among your work colleagues and your social circle in Gloucester. As you get older though, the idea of having extensive orthodontic treatment is also unappealing- so what do you do. Well the first thing is to give Clifton Dental of Bristol a call and ask about the Inman aligner, for this is the answer to your prayers. This device is designed to work solely on your front teeth and within days of it being fitted, will loosen your teeth up with its unique mechanism and pull them into place very quickly. The device is removable, so you won’t have any problems with keeping your teeth clean and healthy throughout. But the greatest asset to the Inman is that it can have your teeth straightened in as little as 6 weeks; this isn’t normal and afterwards, your teeth will want to spring back, which is why you’ll need a retainer until they have got used to their new position in the mouth….but what a device eh? 6 weeks to put right all of the problems with your teeth? That’s got to be worth a look!

Some things in life are truly beautiful and remarkable and when it comes to dentistry, there is none sexier than the Inman aligner. Modern orthodontic treatments have improved beyond belief to provide you with quick and discreet treatment to brighten your smile and pull your teeth into place, and the Inman epitomises everything good about getting your teeth straightened. It is bespoke to a particular condition, namely, teeth that stick out at the front of your mouth and its design backs this up: a wire pulls on the outside of the teeth, while a bar pushes against the inside and being that both are connected to the same springs, they work together to loosen the teeth and pull them back into the desired position, and it is truly sensational how quickly this happens- your treatment can be over with in 6 weeks and considering that the device starts at £1200, that’s only £200 a week to get the most irritating problem in your mouth sorted out for once and for all. There are other conditions attached to this treatment; rapid movement in your teeth like will require you to wear a retainer to prevent the teeth from wanting to return to where they once were. But the aligner allows you a certain amount of freedom throughout the treatment because it can be taken out whenever you want to. For more information on this amazing device in Chepstow, then get in contact with Clifton dental in Bristol.

It would probably be beyond your wildest dreams to get your front teeth straightened in as little as 6 weeks, definitely impossible you may think. But this is not a prank and there is a gadget around in Swindon right now that promises to do just that- the Inman aligner. It’s a device that pushes the boundaries and theories of tooth alignment to the maximum and it flies in the face of convention. A plate houses a bar and a wire: the bar pushes the inside of your teeth and the wire pulls on the outer surfaces of your teeth. Both work together because they are linked via a couple of springs at the back of the plate. Every movement your mouth makes causes the two to rock your teeth loose and whip them back into position extremely quickly. During the short amount of time you’ll be wearing this device, you can take it out whenever you fancy and seeing that you’ll need to wear it for at least 20 hours a day, it does give you the luxury of eating normally and clean your teeth effectively. The cost starts from around £1200, which equates to £200 a week, but 6 weeks? That truly is manna from heaven if you’ve been troubled by your teeth all of your life. To find out the wheres and the hows about the Inman aligner, you should most definitely get in touch with Clifton Dental in Bristol.

Clifton dental will give you advice on all things dental, all of it good advice, but you may get the impression that they may be spinning you a huge fable when they give you advice on the Inman aligner, because some of its boasts simply aren’t possible…are they? The perfect candidate for this aligner is someone who is suffering from buck teeth at the front of the mouth, because the design of this device only allows it to work this way. On the inside of the mouth a bar pushes against the inside of the teeth and is connected to a spring that also operates a wire that pulls the outside of the teeth, so in a sense, these opposing forces jiggle the teeth about and loosen them so that they move into the desired position rapidly, very rapidly, 6 weeks rapidly in fact! That’s got to be a lie. Hasn’t it? The aligner is also removable (yeah right!) and so it can be taken out whenever you choose. Apart from all these goodies, the Inman is quite cheap considering it is made specially to fit your mouth, some start at around £1200, so in real terms, you are paying £200 a week to remove a problem that has possibly haunted you most of your life. Of course, it is at this point you wake up in Bath and realise it was all a dream…wasn’t it?!

Patients from Bristol and corresponding areas are turning more and more to Inman aligners as a way to straighten out their teeth and here at Clifton Dental Studio we are happy to oblige with one of the latest techniques being used to fix this common problem.
Although not completely invisible, Inman aligners are discreet and are an excellent method of quickly straightening teeth. They look a bit like a retainer and are made up of wires and clear plastic. They work by using a different system from the main competitor on the market Invisalign aligners, using a system of springs which pull and push your teeth until they are in the optimum position.
The speed of the treatment is probably the biggest benefit of using Inman aligners rather than traditional braces to straighten your teeth. If you have a relatively simple problem, it can be fixed in as little as four weeks. Even complex problems are usually sorted out in 16 weeks. They do not need to be adjusted much so one set is all that is needed for the whole process. They are also removable which you will soon realise is very useful when you get food caught up in your braces. This way you can simply remove them when you eat, or, if you forget, you can easily take them out and give them a clean.
The one thing to remember with Inman aligners is that they are not suitable for all patients. The level of movement they are able to produce is more limited than with traditional braces and are best suited to correcting misalignments in the upper or lower front teeth. However, is this is the problem you face, then it is worth speaking to your dentist about Inman aligners as they are an effective way to fix your smile.
