The Inman Aligner is a revolutionary appliance, described as the "missing-link" between cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, that can move teeth in the anterior region predictably and quickly using a single appliance which

- Allows you to achieve great results using just one appliance
- Can give your patients a wonderful smile with less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time.
- Can be removed and inserted as easily as a retainer.
- Can be used to quickly align teeth before veneer preparations to deradicalize preparations and avoid elective endodontics.
- Most cases are completed between 4-16 weeks. Is a faster alternative to more expensive "Invisible Braces".
- This hands-on course has been designed to teach attendees how to use the Inman Aligner in order to be a certified user. All aspects of the treatment will be covered from case evaluation to fitting and then retention, so that attendees will be able to handle simple to moderate cases immediately.
