We offer a range of clear and discreet orthodontic systems at Somerhill Dental Practice, for patients who feel self-conscious about their crooked or crowded teeth.
Did you once spend years undergoing painful orthodontic treatment and unsightly braces only to see your teeth slowly slip back to their former wonky ways? Are you one of many who are generally unhappy with the alignment of your teeth and longing for a beautiful, straight smile?
Until now, the alternatives to straighten front teeth involved either long and expensive orthodontic treatments or destructive and expensive restorative treatments such as veneers or crowns. Even ultra-thin veneers involve heavy reduction of natural teeth when used to align crowding or protrusion. But with the arrival of more discreet orthodontic treatments, all that has changed.
The Inman Aligner
The Inman Aligner is a cost-effective removable orthodontic appliance that moves teeth in a fraction of the time of other systems. It aligns crowded or protruding anterior teeth with two opposing spring loaded aligner bars. This provides gentle but continuous pressure over a large range of movement. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth but it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.
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.
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. Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them. Dr Hutchinson of Somerhill Dental Practice has achieved this certification and provides many Inman Aligners, here in Hove.
The cost of orthodontic treatment can be spread over a number of months with our finance options.

Clear aligners are often described as 'invisible' aligners. Most people will not realise that you are straightening your teeth. These are ideal for adult patients who do not want lengthy treatment with metal brackets of bulky removable appliances.
A series of clear aligners gently align the teeth to the desired position. Each new aligner is worn for approximately 2 weeks. Please view this short video which demonstrates how clear aligners align the teeth.
