One of the best features of modern orthodontic treatments is speed. In the past, patients who wanted straighter teeth wore braces for at least one year and sometimes up to three years, but with modern treatments, waiting times are getting shorter every year. One of the most impressive treatments we offer is the Inman Aligner: an incredible option for people who want results fast!
What is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a removable brace that offers a swift, discreet and removable alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments. The aligner sits over the top of the teeth with a coiled spring positioned at the back of the teeth and a metal bar running along the front of the teeth. These two parts produce forces, which work to move the teeth and improve the aesthetic of the smile.
How long does the Inman Aligner take to straighten the teeth?
The Inman Aligner is one of the quickest treatments around, with an average treatment time of just 16 weeks. In very minor cases, treatment may take less than six weeks, making this an ideal choice for those who are desperate to start enjoying the benefits of treatment as quickly as possible and those who are eager to look their best for a wedding, big party or graduation ceremony.
Who is a suitable candidate for treatment?
The only real downside of the Inman Aligner is that it doesn’t cater for everyone. This treatment is aimed at patients who have minor issues that only need a small amount of movement. Ideal candidates include those with mild crowding of the front teeth or small gaps between the front teeth. If you have more complex needs, we have treatment options to suit you too and we will be happy to explore the different treatments with you.
