Inman Aligner

Inman Logo

In adulthood, sometimes a tooth will shift out of a previously acceptable position. This may not require traditional or Invisalign braces, but there are less strenuous methods for treating slightly misaligned teeth.
Consider the Inman Aligner, meant to correct mildly shifted teeth. This retainer-like appliance has a removable wire and notable advantages over other alternatives. This page answers commonly asked questions about the Inman Aligner.

What is the Inman Aligner?

Better than a retainer, this aligner actually corrects slight to moderate tooth misalignments while being more comfortable due to its composition from nickel titanium instead of stainless steel. Better than Invisalign braces, it costs less and involves a shorter treatment time using only one device instead of a series of adjustments.

Please note that this aligner works best when only front teeth need treatment. For full mouth treatment, read more about Invisalign here.

How does the Inman Aligner work?

This appliance works through the use of opposing pressure on the front and the back side of the misaligned teeth. Watch a video demonstration of this process here.

How involved is this treatment?

This treatment begins with a pair of 30 minute appointments. Following that, expect a quick appointment each month for the duration of treatment. Treatment commonly lasts 6-16 weeks.

How painful is this treatment?

A little Tylenol or ibuprofen should relieve any pain experienced during the first week of this treatment. Common side effects during early treatment are extra salivation and greater effort to speak clearly, but both usually wear off in about a week. Generally, this treatment consists of steady, gentle pressure. Once you get used to its presence in your mouth, you should easily be able to tolerate this aligner.

How does this compare with Invisalign?

The Inman Aligner treats only the visible front top teeth and bottom teeth, while Invisalign is intended to treat the alignment of all of your teeth.

How many dentist visits should I expect?

The pressure built into this aligner is meant to work on its own, without a lot of intervention. You will have to visit the dentist occasionally, but not as often as with some other treatments.
