Orthodontics is the first speciality of Dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusion.

The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It's ideal as a stand alone treatment or to prealign teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers.
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 image below shows the squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. Your Inman Aligner dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect. For suitable cases, the Inman Aligner is usually much faster than alternative orthodontic techniques.
We also offer Clear Aligners
“Invisible” removable aligners are perhaps the highest profile orthodontic appliance, with widespread advertsing in magazines and television. Whilst they have become increasingly sophisticated and refined it remains important to be clear about the circumstances in which these devices are best used and by whom.
It is important to seek an opinion from an orthodontic specialist who will be able to give authoritative advice on the options. ￼￼￼
After any aligner treatment, retainers will be required to ensure the teeth maintain their corrected positions.
What are aligners?
Aligners are thin clear flexible plastic ‘mouthguards’ which fit closely over the teeth. A series of aligners is used to move the teethincrementally according to a treatment plan developed by the orthodontist. Aligner appliances are ideally suited to adult patients whose life-style or work commitments make it difficult for them to wear more visible conventional fixed appliances.
As with any other form of orthodontics, a proper orthodontic assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan is essential to successful aligner treatment. An accurate impression of the mouth is used to create the customised aligners. Each appliance moves the teeth a small distance towards the intended position before moving on to the next in the series until the final result is achieved. Aligners need to be worn full-time, day and night except for meal times. ￼￼
When should aligners be used?
Aligners are best suited to cases needing simple alignment of teeth without extractions. It may be possible to carry out more complex treatments but an ideal result may require a short course of fixed appliances to upright the roots of the teeth.
Routine aligner treatments include:
● Mild dental irregularity
● Crowding which can be corrected with a slight expansion of the dental arch
● Crowding which can be corrected with minor reductions in tooth width (Inter-proximal reduction or slenderising)
● Mild spacing ￼￼
