I have recently had a treatment with the Inman Aligner. At the moment I am wearing my removable retainer – I was told I should wear it for 3 months and then will be fitted a permanent one.
One of my lateral incisors is not quite in line and I wanted my teeth perfectly straight. I spoke to my dentist about this and he said he can reshape my tooth so it will appear straight. But after I have been wearing my retainer for 2 weeks my other lateral incisor moved about 1 mm and is slightly behind my central incisor. How disappointing. I am starting to regret ever having the treatment.
My dentist said if this is a problem for me he can refer me to another orthodontist so I can get fixed braces. But I assume, this means I would be paying for the treatment all over again? Can you please help me and advise what are my options if the problem won`t be rectified by my dentist? I heard people getting clear aligner to tweak their teeth but my dentist isn`t suggesting this to me. Obviously I am not willing to pay for fixed braces, once I have paid for the Inman Aligner already.
