If you suffer from minor teeth crowding, protrusions, rotations, or crossing of your front teeth, the Inman Aligner® teeth straightening system may be for you. The system is a safe and very fast alternative to traditional metal braces and other aligner systems – most cases are completed in only 6–16 weeks!
The removable Inman Aligner has nickel titanium springs that power the aligner bows. The two aligner bows gently oppose each other thanks to the coil spring mechanism, guiding teeth into a new position. The forces work over a large range of motion, allowing the aligner to work quickly.
If Dr. Oliver determines you are a good candidate for Inman Aligner therapy, he’ll make impressions of your teeth to send off to a lab. The lab will use the impressions to create a custom-made aligner. Come into our office for the initial fitting of your aligner, and come back every 2–3 weeks to check in. You’ll wear the aligner for 16-20 hours a day for the duration of your treatment.
Once your treatment is over, Dr. Oliver will ensure you have the proper retention, typically in the form of a retainer, to prevent relapse of the treated condition.
Call our Summerville office if you’re experiencing any of the following:
The Inman Aligner is also great for pre-alignment prior to cosmetic treatments like veneers to reduce the preparation needed.
