Invisalign

Invisalign has been used to successfully treat over 500,000 cases and is extremely effective at straightening crooked teeth and closing unwanted gaps between teeth.

invisalignHow does it work?

Invisalign involves wearing a series of clear, removable, custom-made plastic aligners that gradually straighten your teeth without having to use any unsightly metal wires and brackets that are associated with traditional braces.

Invisible – and removable!

Invisalign aligners are completely invisible – this means no one will know you are having the treatment done – and speech is completely unaffected.

Treatment with Invisalign is generally completed in half the time of conventional orthodontic treatment, and the fact that the aligners are removable means that you can brush and clean your teeth as normal on a daily basis.

The development of Invisalign has made orthodontic treatment accessible to adults who may previously have been put off having orthodontic treatment due to the appearance of “metal braces” and is a non-destructive alternative to veneers.

My advice to anyone looking to get their teeth straightened would be to book an appointment! I did to my husband and he is currently having his teeth straightened too! He was really impressed with how quickly my teeth moved and how pleased I was with my dental work!

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth.

inmanIt is fast, very safe and great value compared to other systems and provides a real alternative to traditional or clear braces.

It works by gently guiding your front teeth to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-16 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.

Ruby Mahal is a certified Inman Aligner Dentist. You can view her certification on the Inman Aligner website.

rubyWhat is an Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely.

It can be used as the solution for tooth crowding, protrusion, rotations and crossbites.

It’s ideal as a stand alone treatment or to prealign teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers. Most cases complete in 6-16 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.

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 on the right 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 but Clive will give you a realistic guide of what to expect. The Inman Aligner is often much faster than alternative orthodontic techniques.

What’s involved in Treatment with the Inman Aligner?

  • Your initial appointment will determine if the Inman Aligner is suitable for you.
  • Impressions are needed so that the lab can fabricate your custom made Inman Aligner.
  • We will carry out an initial fitting of the Aligner.
  • You should wear the Aligner 16-20 hours a day
  • You will come in for regular Inman 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.
