With Inman Aligner® Braces
The Inman Aligner is a custom made brace which uses small plastic springs to move several front teeth. The Inman aligner is only suitable for the front 4 teeth (possibly the canines too depending on what is wrong) and only if they need to be tilted/pushed back or forwards or rotated not too much. It can’t change your bite or pull teeth down or deal with anything major, but if you only need some mild-moderate cosmetic straightening its perfect.
At Arnold Dental in Nottingham, our Inman Aligner Braces have
Very high success rate. If the patient wears their appliance diligently, they can expect to have straighter teeth in just a few weeks. Among past cases, Inman aligners have had a success rate of over 90%. The remaining few did not achieve the results they wanted and may opt to have some final clear aligners to finish off to their complete satisfaction.
Sometimes you may notice a lisp so sometimes choose not to wear them for important phone calls or where being heard clearly is very important. It will still work perfectly well as long as you manage around 140 hours a week.
Cost wise its around £2000 including a bonded retainer on the back of the teeth and a removable night retainer – the retainers are essential as the teeth would move back very quickly without them.
Due to the nature of the Inman aligner appliance being a single appliance they are also cheaper than Invisalign which needs multiple aligners in sequence.
You can remove your Inman Aligner for eating and drinking, meaning you don’t have to give up your favourite things while having treatment. It’s safe – while there are always risks associated with orthodontic treatment, this is minimal with the Inman Aligner.
It’s also recommended you’re careful when cleaning it too – use a gentle solution such as Retainer Brite and leave the Inman Aligner to soak in it for a while. Keeping the appliance clean ensures that its pistons function properly and that it continues to straighten your teeth when you wear it.
