Inman Aligner Belfast

Available from £41.56 per month


The Inman Aligner is a modern orthodontic treatment that can be used to produce a straighter, healthier looking set of teeth.

Alternative to other braces

The Inman Aligner is an increasingly popular alternative to other braces, which can take longer to produce results and are more expensive. The Inman aligner was pioneered in the USA but is now widely available in the UK, and we at Creative Smiles are delighted to be able to offer this innovative treatment.

How long will the treatment take?

Treatment with the Inman Aligner is much quicker than most other teeth straightening methods. Typically, patients will wear the device for between six to sixteen weeks. Patients are advised to wear the device for around 20 hours each day in order to produce the best possible results. Most patients wear traditional braces for at least a year, so this method produces results in a much shorter period of time.

How does the treatment work?

Unlike other types of braces, the Inman Aligner is a simple device which relies on the forces generated by a small coiled spring and a fine metal bar. The spring is attached to the back of the teeth, while the metal bar runs along the front of the teeth. Over time the combination of forces makes the teeth move in the correct direction by pushing or pulling them in a certain way.

Is the treatment suitable for everyone?

The Inman Aligner can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic problems, but it is not suitable for everyone. Patients with crowded teeth, for example, will often be recommended to go for an alternative treatment. Our experienced dentists here at Creative Smiles will be able to discuss other options with you if this is the case.

Inman Aligners consist of nickel-titanium alloy springs and aligner bows. Each part of the aligner creates an opposing force. The outer bows pull the teeth back while the inner bows push forward. Combining these forces makes Inman Aligner treatment quick.
