What is an Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It's ideal as a stand alone treatment or to prealign teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers.

How does it work?

The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.

The image below shows the squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.

What can the Inman Aligner do?
  • It aligns the front teeth (crowding, protrusion, rotations, crossbites).
  • Ideal for orthodontic relapse.
  • As a stand-alone treatment or combine with simple whitening and bonding.
  • Pre-alignment for cosmetic cases so teeth don’t need much preparation and veneers can be super-thin.
How long is the treatment with the Inman Aligner?

Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks.
