Apart from its aesthetic beneﬁts, the Inman Aligner is easy to use and can be inserted and removed at any time, allowing eating and brushing to continue as normal. Once teeth have moved to the desired position, a very discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new position.
During the ﬁrst consultation, an impression is made of the teeth and in the second, teeth are smoothed to make room for movement and the aligner ﬁtted.
For the duration of the treatment bi-weekly visits are required to review and adjust the aligner.
By creating pressure on both sides of the teeth, they are gently aligned.
The springs and cribs around the sides of the appliance control the force exerted on the crowded/ spaced teeth at a force which would allow controlled movement of the teeth.
If there is not enough room to align the teeth, rather than extracting a healthy tooth, your dentist will use inter-proximal reduction techniques to create space.
This is the planned ﬁling down of the sides of the teeth only by millimetres to collectively make enough space to provide alignment. The procedure is safe, painless and adequately researched to justify its use over the extraction of a tooth.
