There’s no need to wait for years to have straighter teeth. The Inman Aligner improves your teeth alignment in just six to 18 weeks of treatment time.
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance that is used to safely and quickly move crooked front teeth into a more properly aligned position. The aligner can be used on its own as an orthodontic treatment, or can also be used in combination with other cosmetic treatments, such as dental veneers or dental bonding. The Inman Aligner works its magic in just six to 18 weeks, depending on the teeth straightening treatment that needs to be done; your dentist will be able to give you a clear idea of the time frame needed for your specific orthodontic need.
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.
Inman Aligner is suitable for those who want to straighten mild overcrowding or protrusion of the front teeth, in a safe, discreet, and quick way. It is important to have a certified Inman Aligner dentist check on your suitability for the treatment, to determine your eligibility for the Inman Aligner system.
Fitting the aligner takes Two 30 minute appointments, followed by 15-minute monthly check-ups. Treatment can be achieved in as little as 8 to 16 weeks.
