Appletree Dental Care is one of the leading Glasgow Inman Aligner clinics. The big difference between Inman Aligner and some other dental braces is how quickly they can work for some patient who have protruding or overcrowded teeth. They find their smile can be transformed in just a few weeks.
We often see patients who experienced old-fashioned childhood orthodontic treatment when they were younger. They might have had to wear heavy, ugly braces for months on end. Unfortunately some now see their teeth gradually returning back to their earlier states and this is understandably upsetting.
Other patients are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth and wish they had done something about it earlier. This is when we often consider Inman Aligner.
Cosmetic dentist Dr Brendan Murphy explains the Inman Aligner system:
Inman Aligners will produce results within six weeks to six months and they are suitable for mild cases and some of the more moderate cases as well.
You will see results within six weeks and hopefully we will have braces taken out and retainers in within the six months.

Your Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer. It has two spring-loaded aligning bars which fit over the four front teeth.
Inman Aligner then provides a constant gentle pressure on the teeth, easing them back into place.
Inman Aligner is easy to use and can be inserted and removed at any time, allowing for eating and brushing your teeth as normal.
When your teeth have moved to the position we want, a discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new better position.
An initial dental impression is made of your teeth and then your teeth are smoothed to make room for them to move and for the aligner to be fitted. You will need to come back to the practice every two weeks or so during your treatment so your aligner can be adjusted.
Inman Aligner costs from £1450.

The Inman Aligner was created by Donal Inman, a dental laboratory technician from Miami, Florida.
