How does the Inman Aligner work?

Similar to the Invisalign system, the Inman Aligner is a removable appliance used to move teeth over time. But unlike Invisalign, the Inman Aligner relies on forces created by coiled springs that gently “push” and “pull” the front teeth into a nearly ideal position in a much shorter time. The animation to the right illustrates the forces involved in this movement.

Why should you use the Inman Aligner?

  • It is a faster, cost-effective alternative to traditional and invisible braces.
  • Only one appliance is required – no need to change every 2 weeks.
  • It can be easily removed to eat and clean your teeth.

Is everyone a candidate for the Inman Aligner?

No. The Inman Aligner is limited to movements of the upper and lower front teeth. For most patients with mildly crowded or rotated front teeth, it is a fast and effective solution that can have you smiling with confidence in a matter of weeks. It is not a treatment for the full arch (all your teeth) and may not be suitable for heavily crowded situations. Dr. Sang also offers Six Month Smiles™ and Invisalign for more complex cases. Let Dr. Sang discuss which treatment option is most appropriate for you.

How long does treatment take?

Treatment times for most cases generally ranges from 3-4 months. Naturally, more crowded front teeth will require more time. The speed of the results depends on how long you wear the Inman Aligner each day. It is recommended that you wear the Aligner for at least 21 hours a day, every day, until treatment is complete.

Is it uncomfortable?

Just like any orthodontic treatment, at first it may feel uncomfortable and will take some getting used to. You may need an occasional Tylenol or Advil for the first few days of treatment if you encounter discomfort. The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two and may cause you to salivate more during this time. But you will become accustomed to the fit of the Aligner and your speech will improve with time.
