Straight Teeth

In the past, anyone with crooked top or bottom teeth had very few choices. Fixed braces and clear braces work extremely well but can take 18 months or longer to work and can be costly. Another option is veneers but this will involve removing healthy tooth structure.

Reid Family Dental Practice can now offer a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth, via the Inman Aligner. We’re proud to be one of the few fully accredited Inman Aligner practitioners in the area.

The Inman Aligner is the orthodontic treatment of choice for adult patients who have had orthodontic work in the past which has since relapsed. It is a removable device which works quickly and efficiently, so that patients can now have their front teeth top and bottom straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks.

Even if veneers are absolutely necessary to achieve a perfect smile, due to the shape or colour of a patient’s teeth, the Inman Aligner is the perfect way to align the teeth first quickly before the veneers are prepared. This means significantly less healthy tooth is removed.

Please note that not all patients are suitable for an Inman aligner so careful planning is necessary.
