The Inman Aligner
The Inman Aligner is a cost-effective removable orthodontic appliance that moves teeth in a fraction of the time compared to other teeth straightening systems. It aligns crowded or protruding front teeth by providing gentle but continuous pressure.
Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth, and it also makes treatment very safe and kind to the teeth as well.
People love the speed of treatment and it’s changing the face of dentistry as we know it. The average treatment time is only 4-16 weeks, and now with concerns over the economy it’s a more justifiable expense.
“I can’t believe how fast my teeth moved!”
Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide this innovative teeth straightening treatment. Dr Mark Setters of Dental Healthcare Practice has achieved the required certification and provides Inman Aligners, here in Horsham, West Sussex.
“The Inman Aligner is the greatest innovation in dentistry of recent years. It’s fast, affordable and kind to teeth. It really is the best way to straighten crowded front teeth.”
The Clear Aligner System
Offering the perfect way to achieve a beautiful smile invisibly, the Clear Aligner System is excellent at straightening out overlapping, crooked or gappy teeth.
We use the smile align system because we have found it to be unmatched in its precision. The computer prediction of final tooth positions are very accurate, and the clear aligners are also very comfortable. We can predict how long it will take to get you the straight-talking smile you’ve been dreaming about.
There are a number of clear aligner systems available such as Clearstep R, Invisalgn R, and Smile Align R. They are designed so that you wear each positioner for approximately two weeks. Little by little they gently move your teeth to the desired position. They are specifically designed to address minor to moderate corrections that don’t require traditional braces.
Using computer technology you are able to see on a screen your teeth movements taking place. Movements that take months are revealed to you in seconds, so you can see exactly what to expect from the treatment.
They are very comfortable and don’t impact on your speech, but, importantly, are
removable so you can take them out for an important business meeting or a hot date!

Teeth Straightening FAQs
Are teeth straightening treatments safe?
Teeth straightening with one of our expert dentists is an extremely safe procedure. We’ll explain everything to you at your first appointment to make sure you are 100% happy before proceeding with the treatment. You will be advised to take extra care brushing your teeth. If you do have fixed braces, it is more difficult to clean certain areas of your teeth. With our removable aligners you can continue your dental hygiene routine as usual.
Will teeth straightening treatment hurt?
The Aligner systems we use are completely painless. Your aligner may feel slightly unusual at first, but the beauty of the aligner systems are their ability to move teeth gently and safely without causing any pain. If you do have any discomfort contact your dentist straight away for advice. Properly fitted aligners shouldn’t cause you any problems.
Is teeth straightening treatment expensive?
Advancements in dentistry, such as the Aligner systems, are straightening teeth in record times. With the average treatment time taking just 4-16 weeks, the cost of treatment is relatively less than the lengthy fixed brace treatments of the past.
What are the benefits of the Aligner teeth straightening systems?
The Inman and Clear Aligner systems offer gentle, safe teeth straightening. They work surprisingly quickly and can straighten teeth in as little as 4 weeks in some cases. They are also a much more affordable option than more traditional teeth straightening options.
Why should I get my teeth straightened?
While many people decide to get their teeth straightened for cosmetic reasons, there are actually also some very good health reasons to consider correcting your teeth. When left untreated many minor problems can become worse and contribute to excessive wear on some of your teeth’s surfaces. Correcting minor problems are much less costly now than the potential more serious problems that can occur later down the line. An over bite or misalignment of teeth can cause inefficient chewing, gum stress, and even jaw problems and headaches.
Can all teeth straightening be achieved using the Aligner systems?
Most minor to moderate cases of misaligned or protruding teeth can be treated using either the Inman Aligner or the Clear Aligner System. However, some more severe cases will require another solution. Fixed braces today are a far cry from the very obvious metal braces of days gone by.
Fixed orthodontic braces today can be made in tooth coloured materials, making you feel less conscious about achieving the perfect smile. Lingual braces involve the brace appliance being placed on the inside of the teeth, which makes them almost invisible. Self-ligating braces eliminate the need for metal or elastic ties, and requires less frequent adjustment. There are many options for teeth straightening and the best option for you will be determined by your dentist.
