The Inman Aligner uses a lingual coil spring that puts pressure on the teeth that need repositioning and a labial bar that reverses the same pressure. These components squeeze the teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment.
The average treatment time is 2-6 months and the brace is removable so it fits easily into your lifestyle without inconvenience. When fitted, the visible part of the appliance is clear so it is hardly noticeable and does not interfere with your appearance.
