The Inman Aligner is designed to correct adult relapse and misaligned teeth. It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, and it is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions. The Inman Aligner is similar to a retainer but has these advantages:
- Can correct moderate crowding and rotation of teeth
- More comfortable to wear as the spring is made of nickel titanium rather than stainless steel
- No retention problems
- Less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time
- Achieve great results with just one appliance
The Inman Aligner uses a lingual coil spring that puts pressure at the back of the teeth that need repositioning.
A bar placed across the front of the teeth reverses the same pressure.
These components work together to "squeeze" teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment.
Fitting the aligner takes two half-hour appointments, followed by 15-minute monthly examinations.
Treatment can be achieved in as little as 8 to 16 weeks.
