Inman Aligners in Farmington Hills, MI

Straighten Your Smile with Dr. Shlafer

Having a smile you can be confident in is something we all deserve. If misaligned teeth prevent you from showing off your smile, orthodontic treatment can help you achieve a smile you can be proud of. More importantly, misaligned teeth are more susceptible to oral health issues like tooth decay and periodontal disease. If your teeth are in need of alignment, metal braces are a tried and true solution. However, metal braces can be a huge inconvenience. They prevent you from eating certain foods, they’re difficult to clean, and the treatment process often takes more than a year.

Inman aligners offer a solution to all of these problems. That’s why our orthodontist recommends Inman aligners for Michigan patients in Canton, Plymouth, Southfield, Franklin, Beverly Hills, and the surrounding areas looking for a modern solution to orthodontic treatment.

Explore our guide to learn why Inman aligners are the right choice for you.

Benefits of Inman Aligners

Inman aligners offer a range of unique benefits that separate them from other orthodontic treatments. Some of these include:

  • Removable — You can remove your aligners before meals, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods. This also makes them easy to clean, and you only need to wear the aligners for 16 hours daily.
  • Convenient — Unlike Invisalign®, you’ll only wear one pair of aligners throughout your treatment. You’ll only need to schedule appointments every two to three weeks.
  • Fast — Inman aligners straighten your teeth in 6-18 weeks.
  • Affordable — This treatment is less expensive than metal braces or Invisalign, so you don’t have to break the bank to straighten your smile.

Are You a Candidate?

Inman aligners are designed to treat mild to moderate crowding. Often, the best candidates for Inman aligners are patients who previously had some form of orthodontic correction, but now their front teeth are starting to shift again.

We use Inman aligners to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crowded front teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Pre-alignment for cosmetic treatments
  • Orthodontic relapse

To see if Inman aligners are the best treatment for you, we recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation with Dr. Shlafer at (248) 781-0040.

The Treatment Process

To begin the process, Dr. Shlafer will take precise impressions of your teeth, which will be used to custom-design your aligners. After you receive your appliance, you’ll wear it for 16-20 hours per day, and Dr. Shlafer will check on the progress of your treatment every two to three weeks.
The aligners use Nickel Titanium coil springs, which power two bows that gently resist each other and guide your teeth into proper alignment.

Frequently Asked Questions

You may experience mild discomfort after receiving your Inman Aligners because the appliance uses gentle and steady pressure to shift your teeth. Fortunately, discomfort should subside after about a week of wearing your aligners. Dr. Shlafer recommends taking an over-the-counter painkiller, like aspirin or paracetamol, to help relieve initial pain or discomfort.
In most cases, the entire Inman Aligner process can be completed anywhere from six to 18 weeks. However, treatment time varies for each patient and several factors, like what type of orthodontic issue is treated. Dr. Shlafer will provide you with a more detailed breakdown of the treatment process after examining your oral health and discussing your smile goals.
The average cost of Inman Aligners is around $1,200 to $1,500 but varies depending on the condition of your orthodontic problem and length of treatment time. During your consultation, we’ll provide you with a more accurate rate after reviewing your medical history, examining your oral health, and discussing your treatment goals. For your convenience, Dr. Shlafer provides free consultations and accepts several payment and financing options.
Yes — Inman aligners are incredibly successful if they are worn properly and diligently. They need to be worn for 16-20 hours daily in order to be effective. In some cases, patients see results in just a few weeks.
