The revolutionary Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a simple orthodontic appliance that is used to straighten crooked or misaligned front teeth.

Its main advantage is that it achieves rapid tooth straightening in a fraction of the time of traditional metal braces or clear braces systems, as well as being a cheaper alternative. The system can also be utilised to pre-align teeth before additional cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers or smile makeovers.

It allows you to achieve breathtaking results in a mere few weeks using a single appliance. It can also be removed and inserted as easily as a retainer so you are free to eat, clean your teeth or attend social events without difficulty or discomfort. The treatment typically takes between 6 to 18 weeks. Once the treatment is complete, a retention system is recommended to prevent the teeth from relapsing to their former position.
