We are committed to helping every patient maintain excellent oral health and to giving them a smile they are proud of. This can range from detailed, personalised treatment plans, to quick and easy steps to a perfect smile.
For patients who have crooked front teeth, we offer the Inman Aligner, a simple, removable teeth straightening treatment that can give you fantastic results in as little as 10 – 16 weeks.
The Inman Aligner is a straightforward, pressure-based device which doesn’t have to be fixed to the teeth with brackets, ideal for those who want to continue enjoying their favourite food and drinks, and great for easy cleaning of the mouth and aligner. Instead, it uses a coil spring that gently realigns the teeth, without the need for full braces.
Your dentist will work closely with you to understand your requirements and assess your suitability for an Inman Aligner, as well as answering any questions you may have. For patients looking to go ahead with this treatment, an impression will be made of the teeth, which is then sent to the lab in order to produce your custom-made aligner.
Once your aligner is ready, you will return to the practice for the fitting and to discuss the use and maintenance of the aligner. For best results it should be worn for 16 – 20 hours each day, with check-ups by your dentist every 2-3 weeks. When you are wearing your aligner, you will be able to see the silver bar across the front of your teeth, but the majority of the aligner is behind the teeth or towards the back of the mouth.
You may experience a little discomfort initially as the treatment begins, in addition to a slight effect on your speech, but this should all settle down after a week or two as you become accustomed to it. After only a few weeks your crooked or misaligned front teeth will have moved into position and you will be able to confidently show off your new smile.
