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

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.

Why choose the Inman aligner?

At The Gentle Dental, we have a team of highly qualified and experienced dentists confident in providing treatment for multiple orthodontic procedures.

With there are many options on offer, some of the reasons people often choose to go with The Inman Aligner are:

  • You can achieve impressive results using just one appliance
  • More affordable than other treatments but still provides patients with results they can be proud of
  • Removable and easily re-inserted (just like a retainer)
  • Multipurpose: Can be used to quickly align teeth as a standalone treatment or as a step before aesthetic restorative treatment
  • Low time investment: Most cases can be completed in 6-18 weeks

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              £295

Composite Bonding         £250

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

Six Month Smile 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.

Dr Ali Rifai was professional and I am very pleased with the outcome of my Invisalign's. I have been with this practice for many years and would highly recommend. The staff are very friendly and nothing is an issue.

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!)
