Aligners

An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a sub-specialty area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets, applying gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into a particular position. The discipline has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot faster and more comfortable than it was in the past. 

There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear the traditional unsightly metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.   

Here's how it works:

  1. Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other are good candidates for orthodontic treatment. 

  2. Impressions, photos and x-rays are taken at the start of treatment to determine the course of action and create aligners.

  3. Good oral hygiene habits are essential during treatment and regular visits are required for check-ups and adjustments.  

Before & After

Before & After

We provide the following straightening solutions 

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is designed to correct adult relapse and misaligned teeth. It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, and it is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions. Similar to a retainer but has advantages over a retainer:

  • Can correct moderate crowding and rotation of teeth 

  • More comfortable to wear as the spring is made of nickel titanium rather than stainless steel 

  • No retention problems 

  • Less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time

  • Achieve great results with just one appliance

Here's how it works:

​The Inman Aligner utilises a lingual coil spring that puts pressure at the back of the teeth that need repositioning and a bar that is placed across the front of the teeth reverses the same pressure. These components work together to "squeeze" teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment. 

How long does it take? 

Fitting the aligner takes two halfhour appointments, followed by 15-minute monthly check-ups.

Treatment can be achieved in as little as 8 to 16 weeks

Does it hurt?

Patients may find they need to take mild painkillers for the first week or so. Like anything foreign to your mouth, it may cause you to salivate more than usual for 24 to 48 hours and could affect your speech for 7 to 10 days.
