Inman Aligner Liverpool

 

Inman aligners are the gentle, safe, efficient and super quick removable braces taking Liverpool by storm in 2017.  Their popularity is due to a number of factors including the low cost, remarkable speed and the fact that patients can remove them to eat.

 

These factors together make the Inman Aligner appliance the most exciting development in adult orthodontics in decades.  This article covers the Inman Aligner appliance in detail.

Benefits of Inman aligner braces

  • A gentle, safe and extremely effective orthodontic treatment for simple cases
  • The appliance is completely removable for eating and cleaning
  • Inman Aligners are much cheaper than other removable braces at just £1,299
  • Aligners are discreet and almost invisible when you’re wearing them
  • Inman retainers are also versatile and flexible and work well with other treatments
  • Align the front teeth only and are only suitable for simple cases

 

 

Aligners are also the orthodontists choice for adult relapse cases.  This is where patients might have had treatment before but their teeth have moved out of position or ‘relapsed’.  The Inman Aligner is an extremely effective treatment for these cases.  As far as the cost of Aligners is concerned, compared with Invisalign® at £4,000 they are significantly more affordable at just £1,299.

 

The aligners only move the front six teeth and this makes them quick and able to be removed.  It also makes them significantly less expensive than some other systems:

Patients typically choose to have other treatments like whitening and composite bonding with their aligners treatment.  In veneers cases aligners are used to align the teeth so the veneers can be fitted with less damage to the underlying healthy dentition.  They are also great for the lower teeth where a patient has chosen veneers for the upper arch and wants to straighten the lower teeth.

 

And then the number one benefit is that treatment can be over in as little as 6-16 weeks!  This is significantly shorter than even the quickest conventional braces (6-9 months) and Invisalign (18-24 months).  Obviously not every patient is suitable for the Inman Aligner and at Smileworks you have the option of being seen by a general dentist or a specialist orthodontist.

Here at Smileworks we pride ourselves on providing you with a number of choices for your braces treatment and this could include any number of conventional or specialist appliances.  But whatever you choose you can feel secure in the knowledge that you’re getting the absolute best braces treatment in Liverpool from some of the most talented professionals.

 

 

How does the system work?

The Inman Aligner retainer works by applying constant and even mechanical pressure on the front and back surfaces of the teeth.  This gently and efficiently moves them into line, solving issues with crowding and misalignment.  The entire treatment takes only 6-16 weeks in total – one of the most remarkable benefits of aligners.

 

The appliance is removable and clips into the mouth.  The pressure is provided by a technologically advanced spring system that applies precisely the correct amount of pressure as the teeth move over time.  Orthodontists and dentists have been literally amazed by the efficiency and precision of aligners, making them one of the most exciting developments in orthodontics in a long time.

 

Patients are advised to wear your retainer for around 20 hours a day, removing them mainly to eat meals and to clean the appliance.  You can take the aligner out for eating drinking and even on the odd special occasion.  But remember that if you don’t wear it enough then this could increase your treatment time.

 

Most of the retainer is hidden behind your teeth and there’s just a clear band in front of the teeth that is barely visible, making the aligner almost completely invisible.  Take a look at this great video that shows how the appliance works in the mouth.

 

 

 

What can Aligners Accomplish?

There are a whole hose of problems that aligners can correct.  Firstly, it can align the front teeth.  This includes fixing crowding (sometimes called overcrowding) and ‘protrusions’ which is the dental name for teeth that stick out.  The system can also rotate teeth, something other invisible retainers are notoriously slow at.

 

The aligner can also correct a ‘crossbite’.  This is where the bottom teeth bite down outside the top teeth.  Aside from the teeth straightening jobs of an aligner it is also an extremely versatile treatment.  It can be used with whitening and composite bonding (or composite veneers) to create a complete smile makeover!

 

Crossbite correction

 

Are Aligners right for me?

Smileworks is a specialist orthodontic practice and we have some of the most talented orthodontists and dentists helping patients feel great about their smiles.  Your treatment will begin with a full assessment of every aspect of your mouth including general health, gum health, a tooth check and assessment of your bite.  Here at Smileworks we refer to this as the ‘Braces Assessment’ and you’ll be given the options that are best for you to reach your particular goals.

 

At the end of the day, only you know what you want to achieve so it’s very difficult for us to say who is suitable before you come in for a braces assessment.  If you think you might have gum disease then you should come in for a braces assessment and the dentist or orthodontist will be able to offer solutions so that you can get it under control and start your braces treatment.

I normally get my dental check and hygiene done by Paula and Jess and I have to say they are always so welcoming since the first time I met them nearly two years ago. Paula is very professional by taking you through the whole process, telling you that kind of details so you know how look after your teeth own your own. She answers every question with specific detail and also ensures you feel confortable during the cleaning treatment. I strongly recommend them in case you are looking for dentist in Liverpool. Many thanks ladies!read more

Had a consultation today with Zoe & Georgie and couldn't be happier with the whole process start to finish. Zoe is very knowledgeable in what she does, continuously ensuring that you are understanding everything and tries her best to lay it out in as clear a way as possible. I thought this was very refreshing in comparison to getting little to no explanation in previous dentists i visited. Georgie is also super professional and makes the whole process super easy and enjoyable as she is so lovely and easy to talk to. Both girls were very impressive and clearly experts in what they do, getting everything clearly laid out in front of me and putting a plan in place to get my teeth back to 100% was again very refreshing. Looking forward to my next appointment! 🙂read more

I was at the dentist for a temporary dressing / filling and a scale & polish this morning, the ladies that tended to my teeth were Paula and Tamzin... they took extra steps to explain exactly what is going on with my teeth and to ensure that I was okay and comfortable with the forthcoming procedures... typically I would bee more nervous but today I felt comfortable at all times and the job on my teeth was great, safe, quick and efficient, I find solace in the fact that they will take extra lengths to preserve my natural teeth👍👌read more

Inman Aligner Before and Afters

What are the risks?

The Inman aligner is one of the safest treatments we have here at Smileworks.  And Inman Aligner problems rarely occur.  In over 20,000 reported cases there have been no instances of teeth becoming damaged or root resorption.  Root resorption is a risk associated with some orthodontic treatments but has never occurred with the Inman Aligner.  Aligners feeling uncomfortable for the first few days is common.  You will get used to them.  Also your speech might be slightly affected for a few weeks but this will pass as you adapt to wearing the retainer.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Does the Inman aligner really work?

The Inman is best for straightening the front six (social six) teeth and is a simple device that is used for simple orthodontic presentations.  If you have a more complicated orthodontic problem than you may need a different system.  The only way to find out is to have a consultation with a dentist.  It is an excellent choice for relapse cases where most of the complex tooth movement has been done already and the front teeth have slipped out of position because you’ve not worn your retainers.

 

How do I clean my Inman Aligner?

The system is removable so this makes it much easier to clean than traditional braces. If you’re interested in how to brush your teeth with braces then follow the link.  Simply remove the retainer and clean it with a toothbrush as normal using warm water.  Do not use toothpaste as this causes the materials to become brittle.  Also don’t use water that it too hot as the system is heat-sensitive. Do not soak it in mouthwash, use denture cleaner instead.

 

Will it affect my speech?

It will take you a few weeks to be able to speak normally while wearing your aligner but if you have an important talk or meeting then just take it out.  Practice here makes perfect!
