How long does Inman Aligner treatment take?
Your dentist should be able to assess the length of treatment required based on your case records. In most instances, upper teeth realignment can take longer than lower teeth treatment.
Treatment is usually completed, depending on the extent required, in around six to sixteen weeks.
To ensure that little orthodontic maintenance of the device is required, Inman Aligners are fitted following an individual pre programme consultation. This is designed to ensure that the treatment caters to the specific requirements of the patient. Once the teeth chosen for realignment have been identified, the lingual coil and labial bars, which create the contrasting pressure at the heart of the treatment, are set to the specific area of focus within the mouth.
Four initial fifteen-minute appointments are required as part of the installation process with the initial meeting used for consultation. Dental records are also required for this initial consultation, as they will pay a key role in the shape the Inman Aligner used.
Around ten days later, the device should be fitted, as part of the second appointment. The final two appointments are usually used to make final minor adjustments to the fitting, to ensure it is as comfortable as possible.
