At the office of Roman Shlafer, we are committed to offering our patients efficient options for obtaining the smiles they desire. When dealing with crowding or protrusion of the front teeth, we are proud to offer Inman Aligners. This method is safe, efficient and reasonably priced. With this appliance, front teeth are gently guided into position, with most cases only taking 6-18 weeks.
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner is unique. Unlike other aligners, it includes Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two bows that gently oppose each other, guiding your teeth into position. Your aligner is removable allowing you to eat whatever you like and continue your oral hygiene as normal, but it should be worn at least 16-20 hours per day.
What can the Inman Aligner do?
- Front teeth alignment (crowding, protrusion, rotations and crossbites)
- Ideal for orthodontic relapse.
- Stand-alone treatment or combine with whitening or bonding.
- Pre-alignment for cosmetic cases
What's involved in Treatment?
Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for an Inman Aligner, impressions will be taken to create your custom-made Inman Aligner. Once your appliance is received, you will wear it a minimum of 16-20 hours a day. We will check on your progress every 2-3 weeks until your teeth have reached their desired position. As with all orthodontic treatments, retention using a retainer is recommended to prevent relapse.
