The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It is really fast, very safe and great value compared to other systems.
With the patented Inman Aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-18 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle. Our dentist Dr Krystal Tarak is also one of the few dentists in New Zealand offering the revolutionary Inman Dental Aligner, a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely.
What you need to know about Inman Aligner
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly. The image below shows the squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
How long is the treatment with the Inman Aligner?
Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. We will be able to give you a realistic guide of what to expect prior to treatment commencement. For suitable cases, the Inman Aligner can be much faster than alternative orthodontic techniques.
What’s involved in Treatment with the Inman Aligner?
- Initial consultation to find out if the Inman Aligner is suitable for you.
- Impressions are needed so that the lab can fabricate your custom made Inman Aligner.
- Initial fitting of the Aligner.
- Wear the Aligner 16-20 hours a day
- Regular progress checks every 2-3 weeks.
- As with other orthodontic treatment, after treatment is completed with the Inman Aligner, retention is recommended for life to prevent relapse. Retention can come in the form of a lingually bonded retainer or an Essix retainer.
All Smiles Stories
The team at All Smiles Dental are fantastic! I went to another clinic for my toothache and they were terrible. Luckily i found Dr Krystal Tarak who took time to explain what was needed for my teeth. Despite my fear of dentist, it was a pleasant experience and i look forward to going back. Awesome service. Highly recommend!
So glad I got my invisalign braces done with All Smiles! The girls made me feel welcome and at ease straight away. Whenever I had a small part that needed to be fixed or amended they were quick to accommodate me. Super happy with the results and how my teeth look. Thank you ladies for making me feel confident with my smile and making the dentist much more enjoyable!
Amazing experience with Dr Krystal and the team at All Smiles! Friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the way we were given all the information plainly and explained thoroughly. We were offered options, and given honest educated advice. This clinic really is passionate about their work and CARES for their patients. Our previous experience with dentists in NZ was not great, but All Smiles has not only restored our faith in dentists – but made our experience very pleasant and enjoyable. THANK YOU!!
