Inman Aligner treatment utilizes a corrected set-up arrangement of the anterior teeth and a removable appliance design. Niti coil springs with active lingual and labial components apply gentle steady forces to correct most anterior rotations, crowding, and relapse.
FAST - light forces can rapidly correct alignment in just 6 - 16 weeks
VERSATILE - correct moderate anterior rotations, crowding, and relapse
CONTROL - tooth movement is pre-programmed to treatment set-up
COMFORTABLE - easily inserted and removed as a retainer type appliance
|WHAT IS IT FOR?
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance designed for the treatment of misaligned anterior teeth. The appliance is worn 16-20 hours per day. Active treatment can be completed in as quickly as 6-18 weeks, followed by a retention phase of clearline retainers, Hawley retainers or bonded V-loop retainers.
Interproximal reduction or arch expansion may be incorporated into treatment to resolve crowding or interferences. Use Diamond Strips or the Inman Expansion Appliance to create space and allow for realignment of teeth.
Case Selection Guide:
Moderate anterior alignment cases are best suited to Inman Aligner treatment. While many types of tooth movements are possible, ideal cases are those that require rotations, labial/lingual repositioning, slight mesial/distal shifting, or minor torque changes. Inman Aligners are also excellent for relapse cases, and pre-prosthetic alignment cases. Factors such as available space, use of composite anchors, patient compliance, and retention all play a critical role in achieving final results.
