What is the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is an innovative treatment, which produces incredible results in a short period of time. The aligner consists of a coiled spring that is placed at the back of the teeth, and a discreet metal bar that sits at the front of the teeth. The combined component parts generate forces, which gradually force the teeth into the desired position.

The Inman Aligner is an incredibly effective treatment for patients who have minor orthodontic problems with their front teeth. The forces are focused on the front teeth so the treatment is not suitable for those who have problems with their back teeth.

How does the Inman Aligner work?

The Inman Aligner at United Dental Care works by generating forces to move the teeth into the desired alignment. The device is focused on the front teeth and can move the teeth quickly, without any pain.

What are the benefits?


The Inman Aligner is a very effective and efficient treatment for patients who have minor orthodontic problems which affect their front teeth.


The device can fabricate incredible results in a matter of weeks and the brace is discreet, unlike traditional metal braces; this is particularly beneficial for people who are worried about the appearance of their braces.


The Inman Aligner is removable, a major plus for patients in terms of flexibility; this also means that the patient can brush their teeth thoroughly, which will help to reduce the risk of oral health problems.


The Inman Aligner is also considerably cheaper than most other orthodontic treatments.

Stages of treatment

Treatment for the Inman aligner at United Dental Care involves the following stages:

Stage one

During the initial consultation here at United Dental Care, the dentist will discuss the details of the treatment with the patient and examine the patient’s mouth to check that they are a suitable candidate for treatment using the Inman Aligner.

Stage two

If the patient decides to proceed, impression moulds of the teeth will be taken. From the impressions we can determine how your teeth are likely to move during the course of treatment.These moulds will then be used as a guide for the technicians as the aligner will be custom made to match the specific measurements of the patient’s mouth.

Stage three

Once the aligner has been manufactured, it will be returned to the dentist. They will check the fit of the aligners and the patient will start their treatment.
