Orthodontics is the straightening or re-positioning of the teeth and associated hard and soft tissue with braces and appliances.
Dr James Overman has been providing orthodontic treatment for over 25 years.


  • Allows the teeth to function properly while eating and speaking.
  • Moves teeth into proper alignment to achieve better esthetics.
  • Orthodontic care results in better acclusion (bite) which is beneficial in cases of wear or trauma to the teeth and jaw joints


  • Decalcification, decay, or localized gum disease around the bands or brackets due to inadequate oral hygiene.
  • Root resorption (blunting or shortening of the roots)
  • TMJ pain or dysfunction.
  • Possible relapse (shifting of teeth) after removal of appliances.
  • Ideal results may not be attainable without surgery.

Consequences Of No Treatment

  • Malpositioned teeth are more difficult to clean, and consequently are more vulnerable to decay, decalcification,
    and localized gum disease.
  • Malpositioned teeth can accelerate wear and tear on the teeth, supporting bone and the TMJ (jaw joint).

Introducing the Inman Aligner

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 ultrathin veneers involve heavy reduction of natural teeth when used to align crowding or protrusion.

But with the arrival of the Inman Aligner, all that has changed.

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.

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.

Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them. Dr James Overman of Minster Dental Care has achieved this certification and provides Inman Aligners, here in the Minster area..

Dr Overman, “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.”
