Inman Aligners are an orthodontic brace that straightens and moves the teeth to a position that nature intended, many adults have crooked teeth and to use general braces would be prohibitive for them. Most dentists use Inman Aligners as an alternative to the Invisalign type of brace. Inman Aligners are limited to the amount of movement they can achieve, and generally work better on misalignments of the lower and upper front teeth. They are generally not suitable for cases where the teeth are crowded or compacted in the mouth. After the first consultation, your dentist will be able to determine if you are suitable for the Inman Aligner. The Inman Aligner is not entirely clear like its rival the Invisalign brace; it has a metal bar that is prominent across the front of the teeth. However, the Inman Aligner has more benefits than the invisible brace system. One of the main benefits is that this system is removable at will; the patient can easily remove and replace it at any time. This makes eating and cleaning the inman aligner much simpler, it is also handy for the busy executive who needs to be brace free at a business meeting. The brace works by pulling and pushing the misaligned teeth into the position that is required by the patient, and this whole operation can take in between 6 to 16 weeks. The cost isn’t too much either, and you can expect to pay anywhere between £1,300 and £2,500 depending on the length of time and the amount of visits required. A patient will need to visit the dentist every two weeks to have a new aligner fitted, this is done by adjusting the springs and the bar to lessen or increase the push and pulling elements of the brace.
