Hi. 2 weeks ago my Inman aligner was removed, and I was very happy with the result. As soon as the Inman was removed my dentist fixed a fitted retainer to the back of my teeth.
Within a day, I noticed my tooth had moved slightly and got very dis-heartened. I called my dentist and she told me ‘it can’t move, if your worried put your Inman back in until you see me next week’ So I did that and my tooth moved slightly back to position before I saw her again. When I visited her, she told me my tooth was fine and gave me a plastic retainer to wear at night. She said if your concerned, I suggest you wear this every day for the next month. It has now been 5 days. At times I have to remove the plastic retainer for eating and drinking and I’ve noticed that my tooth is moving again. I’m concerned. I am doing everything that the dentist has told me to do but I’m not convinced. Surely with a fixed retainer my tooth shouldn’t move? Sometimes I wear my Inman because it puts extra pressure on the tooth but I can’t do this for the rest of my life. Any advice would be great.
