    Default Inman Aligner to close a gap from thumb sucking


    Due to sucking my thumb a lot when I was younger , it has affected the position of my teeth today.

    The above has caused a gap between my Incisor and Front Two Teeth and also pushed The Incisor out slightly.

    Also , the Front Four and Canine's have an overbite.

    I apprieciate no one has seen my teeth and jaw to make an assumption which is fair enough , but I'm wondering if it sounds like this treatment could work for me ?

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Justin. Quite often the habit causes a bite that can only be corrected with fixed braces. However there are certain cases which can be corrected with the Inman aligner. We would only be able to advise further with a full consultation

    I hope this helps

    Default help with new aligner

    Hi There,

    I have had my aligner and have been wearing it for 5 days with no problems. When I removed my aligner to eat this morning I notice that a white line has appeared through the middle of the clear plastic that sits over my front teeth. Is this normal? Please help? My dentist is shut until monday.
