Inman aligners are a type of removable dental appliance that straightens teeth. One of the major advantages of the Inman aligner is that you will only need one appliance to do the job for you. Unlike Invisalign, which requires a series of multiple trays, the Inman requires only one set, making them more affordable.
Inman aligners consist of a custom tray that is moulded to fit the teeth. It uses titanium coil springs that place gentle pressure on two aligner bows. These bows slowly push the teeth into the desired position.
But how effective are they?
The Inman Aligner can is a type of self-adjusting dental appliance. The two coil springs place continuous pressure on the teeth from the front and the back. Your dentist will calibrate the appliance for you, to ensure that your teeth are moved into the right position.
Inman aligners work best for straightening the front teeth — the two bows work together to push them into place and can produce a wide range of movement. Since the forces produced are constant, the Inman aligner can yield results in as little as 6 to 18 weeks depending on the severity of your case.
Since the front teeth are the ones that are visible when you smile and talk, Inman aligners can give you noticeable results in just a few weeks. It can have a truly dramatic effect on your smile.
Inman aligners can also fix minor tooth rotation. Tooth rotation refers to teeth that have grown in a rotated manner, twisting to one side. They are most noticeable among the incisor teeth.
Inman aligners are effective at fixing rotated teeth. They are moulded to fit the teeth and place continuous pressure in just the right spot to be able to rotate the tooth. The aligner can also be adjusted and tightened as needed to ensure that the teeth are moving to the desired position.
Unfortunately, teeth that are rotated more than 30 degrees are more difficult to treat. For severe cases, traditional braces may be a better option. Treatment for severe cases also take more time — some people may have to wear braces for more than two years depending on the angle of rotation.
Inman aligners have a very high success rate. If the patient wears their aligners diligently, they can expect to have straighter teeth in just a few weeks. Among past cases, Inman aligners have had a success rate of 94%.
The remaining 6% did not achieve the results they wanted. In most cases, it is due to compliance issues — it could be that they forgot to wear their aligners, or did not wear them as often as they should have.
In order to increase your chances of success, it is important to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours a day. It only works if the teeth are placed under constant, gentle pressure.
