If I could give them 10/10 I would. Superb service for an out of hours emergency, state of the art digital technology and extremely professional same day on site service. From a broken tooth on a Friday evening to a fully complete & new digitally designed & manufactured (on site) bespoke fitted crown before lunchtime on the following day. Thank you for such excellent service.

Had work done for an injury. Very friendly and walked me through all the work i would have done.
Arranged for me to get emergency work done on a sunday, saving me a days pain.

Fast ,efficient and very professional work that's left me with a crown that looks no different to my original tooth.
Recommended to Dr Sehra by a friend. I must say I was very happy with the service. I am always very nervous about going to dentist, but felt I was always treated with the utmost care and attention, so I found the whole experience very positive. I was in and out in a timely manner and even had the chance to discuss more dental options I have over the long term. I would be very happy to come back to the practice.

Excellent work by Dr Sehra and his team, Nina and Rachel, all very professional. Especially impressed by his crown making machine, evidently there are not many of these in England, I was expecting to wait weeks. Will be back later this year for some implants, I expect these will be equal to the work done so far.

After having real bad toothache and not getting any luck, I called acorn and they got me in within the hour, by ten pm we had identified the problem and a wisdom tooth needed removing. The doctors were extremely understanding and agreed to sedate me. I don't remember anything, I didn't feel a thing. Absolutely the best dental experience I've ever had. Highly recommended.

The Inman Aligner is designed to correct adult relapse and misaligned teeth. It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, and it is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions. Similar to a retainer but has advantages over a retainer:
- Can correct moderate crowding and rotation of teeth
- More comfortable to wear as the spring is made of nickel titanium rather than stainless steel
- No retention problems
It also has advantages over invisalign:
- Less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time
- Achieve great results with just one appliance
However The Inman Aligner is only used for treating the top and bottom front teeth whereas Invisalign can treat full arches (all your teeth)
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner utilises a lingual coil spring that puts pressure at the back of the teeth that need repositioning and a bar that is placed across the front of the teeth reverses the same pressure. These components work together to "squeeze" teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment. To view a video demostration, click here.
How long does it take?
Fitting the aligner takes two halfhour appointments, followed by 15-minute monthly check-ups.
Treatment can be achieved in as little as 8 to 16 weeks.
Does it hurt?
Patients may find they need to take mild painkillers for the first week or so. Like anything foreign to your mouth, it may cause you to salivate more than usual for 24 to 48 hours and could affect your speech for 7 to 10 days.
Is the Inman Aligner new?
Patients have been treated with Inman Aligners since 2000. In the United States approximately 450 to 500 new patients are prescribed treatment with Inman Aligners every month.
Is the Inman Aligner comparable to Invisalign?
No, the Inman Aligner is used for treating the top and bottom front teeth only. Invisalign can treat full arches (all your teeth).
Will treatment with the Inman Aligner be uncomfortable?
No. Due to the gentle but steady orthodontic forces generated, the appliances are easily tolerated. Your doctor may suggest aspirin or Tylenol for the 1st few days of treatment if you encounter any discomfort.
Will the Inman Aligner affect my speech?
Yes. The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will however acclimate to the appliances over time and be able to speak fine with them in place.
Will I need to see the doctor frequently for adjustments?
The Inman Aligners are pre-programmed to reduce the need for office visits. Your doctor will prescribe a treatment due to your needs
