While a standard brace can take more than two years to create the perfect smile, the new spring-loaded device takes on average between four and 16 weeks to nudge teeth back where they belong.
The Inman Aligner treatment is comprised of a removable clear aligner and one visible metal bar that sits across the front of the teeth, which, combined with a lingual coil, create combined forces to gradually squeeze teeth into the desired position.
Careful adjustment of the opposing forces brings the gentlest of pressure to bear in the desired direction, depending on the problem to be corrected.
It is ideal for some patients because the brace can be removed for job interviews, family photos or any type of special occasion.
Below are pictures of a patient that we have straightened their teeth with an Inman Aligner.
