Inman Aligner in Reading

The Inman Aligner is a revolutionary orthodontic appliance that straightens teeth in a matter of weeks. At Woodborough House, we’ve treated many patients from Reading, Berkshire and the surrounding areas with the Inman Aligner straightening system.

The Inman Aligner is unlike other orthodontic treatments because it is removable, discreet and extremely quick at straightening teeth. Many people have described the Inman Aligner as a perfect combination of fixed braces and Invisalign.

Note the Inman Aligner is only suitable for treatment involving the front teeth and is not a comprehensive orthodontic treatment as seen with traditional fixed braces. However, if you only have issues with your front teeth it can provide a quick fix

Though the Inman Aligner is not invisible like Invisalign, it is much more discreet than conventional fixed braces. The system includes a coiled spring situated on the back of the front teeth and a metal bar that is placed across the front. The appliance is removable and can be taken out to eat, drink and brush your teeth.

The Process of Inman Aligner Treatment

One of the biggest benefits of Inman Aligners is that the process is really fast, with many patients seeing results after just 6 weeks. So, how does it all work? Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect when getting Inman Aligners:

To start, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that custom-made aligners can be created. 

Once your aligners return from the lab, you’re ready to go. The aligners feature a bar at the front and at the back, making use of a titanium springs to keep the force on the side or back of your teeth. This will essentially push your teeth into a straightener position. 

The Inman Aligner needs to be worn for 20 hours a day.

How does the Inman Aligner work?

The competing forces of the coiled spring and metal bar work to “push” and “pull” teeth into perfect alignment. The system is able to achieve results quicker than many other orthodontic treatments because it is only able to fix the front teeth.

Am I a suitable candidate?

The Inman Aligner focuses on the front teeth and this is why it is quick at achieving results. If you have minor orthodontic problems of the front teeth, this could be the ideal choice of braces. For more complex cases or problems related to the back teeth, an alternative treatment may be recommended. We will be happy to discuss other options and how they can benefit you.

Do Inman Aligners hurt?

The force of the bar pushing your teeth may mean they feel a little tender, so there is a chance you’ll experience some discomfort. However, on the whole, the process is less painful than traditional metal braces.

How long does the treatment take?

The Inman Aligner treatment is also known as the “12 week wonder” brace, because generally you can see beautifully straight results in this time! For some less severe cases, patients may even see results within 6 weeks.

Will the aligner affect my speech?

While you’re still getting used to the feeling of the Inman Aligner braces in your mouth, your speech may be affected for the first couple of weeks. Soon enough, you’ll be able to speak perfectly fine while they’re in place.

Will I need a retainer?
