Meet our orthodontic treatments: The Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a brilliant appliance that helps to guide crooked teeth back into alignment. We have been offering this treatment to our patients for many years and have achieved lots of wonderful results. Take a look at our smile gallery to see what we can do to straighten crooked teeth.

Main points:

  • The Inman Aligner is a removeable appliance, which means you can take it out to fit in with your lifestyle. With that being said, the fastest way to get results is to wear it as much as possible – we recommend 22 hours per day. This gives you 2 hours of free time in which to eat and brush your teeth.
  • You can drink with your aligner in, but nothing too hot.
  • You can take your aligner out for longer periods of time as a “one off”. For example, if you are giving a presentation, or if you have an occasion. This won’t affect the results too much if you don’t make a habit of it.
  • You can only straighten one mouth arch at a time as to straighten both would feel too bulky.
  • Straightening takes anything from 6-18 weeks. The length of time varies with how crooked your teeth are to start with, and how vigilant you are with wearing the appliance.
  • You need to come in for review appointments every few weeks. This allows us to monitor your progress and make small adjustments to your aligner.
  • The Inman Aligner is usually the cheapest method for straightening your teeth. Quotes are given on consultation.
  • The Inman Aligner is great for aligning teeth that are simply crooked, but not the best treatment if your teeth need to be rotated or pushed up if they have over erupted. We can advise this on consultation.

To book an appointment for a free consultation, please give us a call on 01844 343381 or visit our dental practice in Princes Risborough, Bucks and speak to a member of our clinical team. We see patients from Princes Risborough, High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Thame and the surrounding areas.
