Iman Aligner Vs Invisalign

When it comes to our smile, we want the best possible care and attention – even if it’s costly or heavily involved. The good news is, the treatments we’re focusing on today – Invisalign aligners and Inman aligners – are neither, and a great choice for patients who want a more uniform smile with more comfort, more discretion and more bang for your buck (in other words, interest free credit!). Here’s a bit more about the two treatments and which might be best for you.

Why choose an Inman aligner?

Inman aligners do what they say – use aligners to straighten the teeth. They’re a fantastic option for those who want to go down the more modern route of braces, and avoid fixed metal wire and brackets. They focus on the ‘visible’ top and bottom teeth and can treat your smile quickly and effectively. Some dentists also suggest shorter periods of wear, for example around 16 hours per day for 2-3 months. However, this option may be more visible on your smile than other treatments, and isn’t recommended for those looking to straighten their complete smile.

Why choose an Invisalign aligner?

Invisalign is the ‘invisible aligner’, so expect an ultra-discreet treatment. Just like Inman aligners, you’re able to remove these when you wish, but might need to commit to 20-22 hours’ wear per day. One of their advantages, though, is that they can straighten your entire smile – but expect a longer treatment duration for this.
