This lady from Harrow wanted to improve the appearance of her crooked teeth by having them straightened quickly and effectively.  She had braces when she was young, but as time went on, her teeth started to shift causing her front teeth to become crooked.  She did not want to have fixed braces again or to be treated by a specialist. She preferred the convenience and speed of the Inman Aligner appliance.

The Inman Aligner is a removable brace which applies gentle pressure to the front teeth that need to be moved.  This gentle process is provided by the spring action of the appliance.


Within nine weeks, the teeth were gently guided to an ideal position that the patient was happy with.  To maintain the teeth in place, a permanent bonded retainer was glued to the inside surface of the upper teeth.


The patient was delighted with the results.  It allowed her to achieve great results using just one appliance, in a short space of time.
