The giddy thrill of a perfected smile, the culmination of several years of work: It is easy to see why, following brace treatment, a patient may forget to wear a retainer. Whether it is purposeful or accidental, not wearing a retainer tends to lead to the same frustrating conclusion – a dental relapse. Thankfully, rather than starting again from scratch, it is now possible, thanks to the Inman Aligner, to receive treatment specifically for a dental relapse. The Inman Aligner is also appropriate for fixing minor issues with your front teeth, regardless of if you have previously received orthodontic treatment.
So what is this Inman Aligner?
It is a removable device, similar to a brace, which aligns your teeth and is particularly appropriate for fixing your front teeth.
The pros of the Inman Aligner
In today’s fast paced, hectic world, nothing is more valuable than time. Thankfully, time is what the Inman Aligner saves. The Inman Aligner will have your teeth in position after six to eighteen weeks, a morsel of a fraction of a fragment of the time which typical fixed brace treatment would take getting the job done. Aside from its ‘quick as a flash’ treatment time, the Inman Aligner also comes with all the advantages typical of removable braces: It can be removed prior to eating, thus preventing the aligner from being affected by hard foods, and it can also be taken out for cleaning purposes, meaning you’ll have no obstructions when brushing; removing the aligner before cleaning will also prevent plaque from building up in hard to reach areas.
Is it suitable for all?
Much as we wish it was, sadly it isn’t. During your initial consultation, we should be able to tell you if you are suitable for treatment with the Inman Aligner.
How it gets the job done
The Inman Aligner contains two nickel titanium coil springs in its makeup, and these then command two aligner bows. These bows lightly go up against each other and accordingly move your teeth to the position you would prefer them to be in. The rapid results arise from the reason that the mild force created by the aligner works over a tremendously large range of movement.

6 Month Smiles is a fast-acting fixed brace solution for minor or moderate orthodontic issues; it is designed to correct misalignment and positioning problems with the front teeth, also known as the social 6.
How does 6 Month Smiles work so fast?
Most braces take at least 12 months to correct misalignment, so it’s only natural to wonder how on earth this treatment works so much faster. The key to speedy results with this treatment is the technology; the self-ligating wires generated powerful but gentle forces, which move the teeth very quickly. This system also targets the front teeth, which reduces treatment time considerably.
Aside from the obvious benefit of speed, 6 Month Smile braces are also comfortable and discreet. They are made from clear parts, so they are much less noticeable than traditional fixed braces and they use self-ligating technology, which reduces friction.
6 Month Smiles braces also provide patients with a really simple treatment process. With these braces, once the wires and brackets are fixed, you simply let the treatment work its magic. There’s no need to worry about swapping any braces or remembering where you put your brace after cleaning your teeth.

The Inman Aligner
The Inman Aligner is a removable aligner that is specially designed to correct minor issues with the front teeth. The aligner isn’t invisible like Invisalign aligners, but with an average treatment time of just 16 weeks, your brace will be off and your smile will be stunningly straight before you know it. The aligner is much more discreet than traditional fixed braces.
Invisalign is a clear aligner system that uses a collection of removable, custom-made appliances to straighten the teeth. The aligners work in an order, with each one worn for 2 weeks. They are clear and sit over the top of the teeth for an extremely discreet aesthetic. Invisalign is a very popular system, mainly because it offers the opportunity for patients to have treatment without anyone being able to see the brace. However, it also offers additional advantages, such as comfort and flexibility. With removable braces, you have the freedom to enjoy life as usual, with no worries about cleaning your teeth or getting food stuck in your brace when you’re enjoying dinner out.

These braces use state of the art technology and they are specifically targeted at patients who have problems with the front teeth.

6 Month Smile braces are not invisible, but they are a very discreet option, as they are made from clear brackets and wires, which are closely matched to the natural tooth colour.
Will wearing braces affect my speech and what I eat?
Wearing braces may have a temporary affect on your speech, but you will soon get used to talking with braces and your speech is actually likely to improve after treatment, as misalignment can affect clarity. In terms of eating, it’s beneficial to stick to soft foods for the first couple of days, but after you get used to eating with braces, it will become second nature and you can look forward to enjoying a wide range of foods.
