Straighten Teeth Fast with the New Inman Aligner

Putney Dental Surgery is proud to offer a new and leading edge cosmetic dentistry procedure that is taking Australia by storm – The Inman Aligner. This innovative concept sees protruding or crowded teeth transformed in a matter of weeks!

The revolutionary Inman Aligner now offers patients a fast orthodontic solution at an affordable cost. The Inman Aligner works best for mildly and moderately crowded front teeth, so may not be suitable for everyone.

Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them. Dr Sushma Patel is one of the very few dentists in Australia to be fully accredited for Inman Aligner procedure. To discuss if you are a suitable candidate please contact us and schedule an appointment

The main advantages of the treatment are reduced cost and the speed of treatment. The Inman Aligner is about one third of the cost of traditional braces and requires only one device to be used for the duration on the treatment, meaning a lower number of total visits and adjustments. It can be removed and inserted as easily as a retainer.

How does it work?

The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with two spring loaded aligning bars that fit easily over the front four teeth. Unlike a regular brace, the Inman Aligner provides a constant gentle pressure on the teeth, easing them back into place far more quickly.

Apart from its aesthetic benefits, the Inman Aligner is easy to use and can be inserted and removed at any time, allowing eating, brushing (and kissing) to continue as normal. Once teeth have moved to the desired position, a very discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new position.

During your first consultation, an impression is made of the teeth and in the second, teeth are smoothed to make room for movement and the aligner fitted. For the duration of the treatment bi-weekly visits are required to review and adjust the aligner.

Is it Comfortable?

Like any orthodontic appliance, the Aligner can feel a little uncomfortable for the first few days. After a week most patients are used to their Aligner and have no problems wearing it and it will quickly feel like it belongs in your mouth.

Length of treatment

Inman Aligner treatment typically takes 4-16 weeks. Simple cases can complete in a little over 1 month and more complex cases might take 4 months or so. At your dental consultation we will give you a realistic guide of what to expect. Normally lower front teeth move a little faster than uppers. The appliance has to be worn all day except when eating


The cost of Inman Aligner treatment is approximately $3000 for each arch
