How long is the treatment with the Inman Aligner?
Most cases are completed within 6-18 weeks. Your Inman Aligner dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect.
Is it comfortable?
As with any orthodontic appliance, the Aligner can feel a little uncomfortable for the first few days. After a week, most patients are used to their Aligner and have no problems wearing it.
Will it affect my speech?
The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will however acclimate to the appliances over time and be able to speak fine with them in place.
How often do you have to wear it?
It should always be removed before eating and you should clean your teeth and your Aligner before you refit it back into your mouth. It is okay to take your aligner out for photos, special occasions and eating as long as this is not for longer than a few hours.
Will I need a retainer?
Yes. All orthodontic treatment needs to be retained or will run the risk of relapse and Inman Aligner treatment is no different in this respect.
How long does the treatment take?
Cases vary depending on the degree of crowding and level of compliance but most cases are completed in 6-18 weeks.
