Inman Aligner Braces

The Inman Aligner is an affordable, removable orthodontic appliance that moves the front, visible teeth a fraction of the time it takes other systems.

Inman Aligners Surrey | Are They Better?

Do you suffer from crowding in your front teeth? Or perhaps protrusion (teeth that protrude)?

Using the Inman Aligner patented technology, straightening your front teeth has never been easier. With the invisible system, teeth are gently guided into their correct alignment in a matter of weeks.

Yes, you heard that right! The Gentle Dental can help you achieve a straighter, whiter smile in as little as 18 weeks – that’s just over a month of wearing the aligners.

What is an Inman Aligner? Who can benefit?

The aligner’s effectiveness and success can be attributed to two spring-loaded aligner bars, which provide gentle but continuous pressure – this is the safest and kindest way to move teeth so quickly.

The Inman Aligner can help target overcrowding or minor alignment problems – it will not apply to severe overbite cases. We can use other systems that are fast – explore them here.

So what exactly can the Inman Aligner do, and what can it fix?

  • Realigns the front teeth
  • Corrects issues with crowding, protrusion, rotations and even crossbites
  • Perfect for orthodontic relapse cases

How does it work? The technical stuff

The Inman aligner works by putting a small amount of pressure on the teeth.

The brace itself is made from titanium coil springs that work in unison with the aligner bows to gently push teeth into their desired position.

The inner bow pushes out on the teeth while the outer bow pulls them in, quickly straightening the teeth with one aligner. 

Simple cases can take as little as a month to complete treatment, whereas some more severe bite conditions in the front teeth can be treated in a maximum of four months.

The success of Inman Aligners

Inman aligners have an extremely high success rate.

If you wear your aligners diligently and follow all of the care advice from your dentist, you can expect to have straighter teeth in just a few weeks.

Inman aligners have had a success rate of 94% for previous patients. 

Though the device is removable, the aligner should be worn 20 hours per day for best results.

The treatment only works if the teeth are placed under gentle but constant pressure.

What does the aligner treatment entail?

First, we will organise a free consultation meeting to familiarise ourselves with your oral history and existing teeth and your anxieties and concerns regarding treatment, if there are any.

We will take impressions to design the perfect customised Inman Aligner for your mouth.

The Aligner is made using highly accurate 3D printed models, which are digitally corrected and adjusted, so we begin the process with the perfect Aligner in terms of aesthetics and occlusion.

You will receive a detailed chart of where any Interproximal reduction is required and where any buttons need to be placed.

You will receive a detailed chart of where any Interproximal reduction is required and where any buttons need to be placed.

We can also create a timeline for your treatment so you are fully in the loop regarding all aspects of the procedure.

When you return home with your Aligner you are expected to wear it 16-20 hours a day. If you choose to wear it for less than this, your treatment time may increase.

We will arrange regular check-ups at our practice every 2-3 weeks throughout the treatment duration, to carry out any additional IPR and check if buttons need to be repositioned.

Similar to all orthodontic treatment, when your treatment is completed we recommend a retention solution for life to prevent relapse.

This may be a bonded retainer you wear at night.

We are available by phone or online if you need any additional support throughout the time you are wearing the brace.

Combining aligners and cosmetic dentistry

The revolutionary clear brace system is often seen as the “missing link” between cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, which moves teeth in the anterior region more predictably, safely and quickly.

The procedure is often used as a pre-treatment tool to pre-align teeth before applying other cosmetic procedures like veneers or dental bonding.

But to pull off amazing results, you’ll need not just a dental practice specialising in orthodontics, but for cosmetic dentistry too.

Here at the Gentle Dental, we can put together deals and offers to give your smile a makeover – for example, one of our affordable smile design plans look like this:

Inman Aligner                  £1,799

Tooth Whitening              £325

Composite Bonding        £250

Total cost £2,344            or £195 per month (no interest)

Inman Aligner FAQs

As with any orthodontic appliance, the aligner system can feel slightly uncomfortable for the first few days.

However, after a week, most patients have no complaints about the aligners causing discomfort.

You can expect the Inman Aligner to expect your speech within the first week or so. After this period you will acclimate to the appliance and over time will speak better and better with it.

With the Inman Aligner for the best results, compliance is paramount.

The treatment will only work if you wear it for every day for the allotted time, which is a maximum of 20 hours.

Prices can vary from dentist to dentist, however, here at the Gentle Dental our Inman Aligner packages begin from £1,799.

Yes, all orthodontic treatments require a retainer to avoid the risk of relapse – Inman Aligners, in this respect are no different.

Dental Impant Surgery:I had my dental implants fitted recently and I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ali and the team have done an amazing job since I lost my 2 front teeth over 6 years ago. I had to wait for the surgery for a long time due to my age and the issues surrounding having implants at a young age.I finally had the surgery 12 weeks ago and had my two new crowns fitted last week. They look absolutely amazing and the whole procedure was way less painful than I ever thought it would be.I would highly recommend getting your implants done at the Gentle Dental Practice, you won't regret it!A massive thank you to everyone at the practice!

Fantastic work on my teeth and I would highly recommend! My teeth turned out better than I had even hoped for. If you are in need of any dental work, you would be doing a great disservice if you didn't speak to this practice first. The staff were extremely friendly, there were text updates and all in all an excellent service from start to finish. If you haven't guessed already, I am thoroughly pleased with The Gentle Dentle. Thank you!

Like many people, I have an immense fear of dentistry, and dentists, due to previous experiences.I had two broken teeth and one that had been treated incorrectly by an NHS dentist. I had been in daily pain for about 18 months, and had been put on a 6 month waiting list by my NHS dentist.I called gentle dental to explain my problem and they offered me a same day appointment. They were kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and validating. I’m not sure anybody ever feels completely comfortable in the chair, but It’s the closest I’ve ever come!The work needed was carried out, all of the staff were kind and welcoming, and it showed me that the dentist doesn’t have to be a dreaded place!Thank you so, so much gentle dental! I will definitely be returning.

Dental Implants - 3 New Teeth - June 2022I had the most professional and pain free experience when getting my new tooth implants at Gentle Dental. Honestly I put it off for some many years because I just didn't want to go through the pain. But my experience was totally the opposite. Ali and the wonderful girls were there every step of the way. All my questions got answered and I was reassured everything would work out well. And it did. I was worried for no reason.I did think about going abroad to have it done but when you consider the risk factor, time and professional standards - it made no sense to me. I have known Ali for a long time and knew I would be in the best hands and if there were any issues these would could be resolved easily.If you are thinking of having dental implants at Gentle - don't waste any more time. Just book and get it done.Was it painful ? No, uncomfortable for a few days, yes for sure.I just wish I had it done sooner. Thanks guys, love my new teeth 🙂

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
