Greensboro, NC patients: With Inman Aligner treatment you can get your teeth straight without the wait
Crooked teeth can ruin the appearance of your smile, make you feel self-conscious, and make oral hygiene difficult. Yet, traditional orthodontics involve months or years of wearing uncomfortable braces. Shouldn’t there be a faster, easier way to get your teeth straight? That is exactly what the designers of the Inman Aligner thought, and so they designed one. Virtue Dental Care is proud to bring this innovative treatment to the people of Greensboro, Yadkinville, and other NC communities.
How Inman is different
The Inman Aligner is based on a simple concept, implemented with a sophisticated design. Like classic orthodontic devices, it uses consistent, low-force pressure to achieve tooth movement. However, unlike most braces, Inman isn’t made for major jaw realignment or back tooth movement. Instead, it uses targeted force, specifically focusing on the front teeth with beautiful results in a fraction of the time.
This innovative design does not involve brackets, or anything bonded to your teeth. Instead, the device features two thin aligner bows, which place gentle, opposing pressure on the front teeth. With advanced titanium coil spring action, it maintains constant, yet comfortable, force. Inman Aligner is removable, making oral care simple.
Who is a good candidate?
Inman orthodontic treatment is a wonderful choice for the right patient. However, it is not right for everyone. Patients needing major orthodontic adjustment, such as bite alignment or straightening of the back teeth, are better suited for traditional braces. The best candidates for Inman are those who:
- Have crooked, crowded, or protruding front teeth
- Are primarily seeking cosmetic straightening of upper or lower teeth
- Don’t want to wait wear braces for an extended period
- Are adults, with fully developed teeth and jaws
- Want more attractive smiles in weeks, not months

- Aligners are made of crystal-clear resin and thin metal bars, making them barely visible when worn
- You can have the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted, quickly and conveniently
What to expect during treatment
Straightening your smile is simpler and more convenient than you might expect. You have already completed the first step, which is finding a certified Inman Aligner provider. When you visit Virtue Dental Care, we will begin with a consultation and discuss your options. Most adult patients with mild to moderate protrusion or crowding of the front teeth are potential candidates for Inman orthodontic treatment.
The next step is taking impressions and other records if needed. We send this information to an official Inman Aligner laboratory where your device is custom made. When it is ready, you’ll return to our office. We will verify the device fits properly, give you complete instructions, and answer any questions you may have. Additionally, all genuine Inman Aligners come with care instructions and an appliance case.
As with any orthodontic appliance, you can expect the aligner to feel strange, or perhaps even a little uncomfortable the first time you wear it. However, Inman Aligners are designed for comfort, and most patients adjust to wearing them very quickly. Usually by the time you’ve had it about a week it will feel natural and you’ll have no trouble speaking clearly.
Total treatment time varies but is usually eighteen weeks or less. During this time, we will arrange check-up appointments every few weeks. An Essix or orally bonded retainer may be recommended to prevent teeth from shifting after treatment is complete.
