Inman Aligners in Bracknell, Berkshire
The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It is barely visible and removable, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions.
The Inman Aligner is similar to a retainer but has advantages over a retainer:
- It can correct moderate crowding and rotation of teeth
- Is more comfortable to wear as the spring is made of nickel titanium rather than stainless steel
- No retention problems
It also has advantages over Invisalign:
- Less hassle and expense with results in a shorter period of time
- Achieve great results with just one appliance
However, the Inman Aligner is only used for treating the top and bottom front teeth, whereas Invisalign can treat full arches (all your teeth).
How does it Work?
The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.
The squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow behind the teeth pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
