How does the Inman Aligner work? | Dental Treatment Guide

An Inman Aligner is employed to straighten up the teeth. The main mechanism of action that allows the Inman Aligner to work effectively is a component known as a "lingual coil spring". This spring provides the pressure to work on the teeth that require manoeuvring into position. To ensure this pressure isn't excessive, a piece of the aligner known as a labial bar is used to oppose the force of the spring. The spring and plastic labial bar work together in generating a gripping force on the chosen teeth to reposition them.

Although the Inman Aligner does have a significant squeezing impact on the teeth, the actual movement of the teeth will only happen within the tooth's natural ability. For a highly level of repositioning, you may wish to undergo a more dramatic treatment.

The Inman Aligner works very well thanks to the light pressure that it implicates on the teeth. The low level of pressure means that the teeth do not build up as much resistance against moving so the process actually occurs rather rapidly.

The lingual springs previously mentioned are made out of nickel titanium. This material allows the Inman Aligner to retain the same level of tension and pressure for as long as it is on the teeth. This further speeds up the tooth straightening process.
