Inman Aligner in Camden, London
NW1 Dental Care are pleased to offer our patients Inman Aligner treatment in Camden, North London.
Straighten Teeth Fast with the Inman Aligner
NW1 Dental Care is proud to introduce a new and leading edge cosmetic dentistry procedure that is taking the UK by storm. Dr Anima Bodane is a certified Inman Aligner dentist who is happy to discuss your treatment needs with a free cosmetic consultation.
The Inman Aligner is a great choice for adults who might have had braces in the past but the teeth have relapsed back to their original position. This type of appliance is custom made, very effective and works by moving the teeth in a fraction of the time compared to other more conventional systems. Inman aligners gently move teeth into the desired position with two opposing spring loaded aligner bars. This provides gentle continuous pressure over a range of movement. Ideally they work best on protruding anterior teeth and crowded teeth. This gentle pressure allows the process to be swift and with little discomfort. Patients are extremely pleased with the outcome and the sheer speed of the treatment. Results can usually be noticed between six and eighteen weeks.
How does it work:
The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with two spring loaded aligning bars that fit easily over the front four teeth. Unlike a regular brace, the Inman Aligner provides a constant gentle pressure on the teeth, easing them back into place far more quickly.
The Inman Aligner is easy to use and can be inserted and removed at any time. Once teeth have moved to the desired position, a very discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new position.

Taking care during orthodontic treatment
All orthodontic work results in increased plaque accumulation and so immaculate oral hygiene must be maintained throughout treatment.
At NW1 Dental Care we recommend before braces fit a Gold hygiene visit to ensure teeth and gums are at optimal standard and during treatment if required another Gold hygiene visit to prevent any decay forming or gum disease.
