    Default Tooth Rotation

    Hi there,

    I have been wearing the Inman Aligner and it has corrected an overlap on my top two front teeth. One of those teeth was also slightly rotated. I have read that the Inman Aligner can not move a tooth that is rotated. Do you know if there is another option to straighten a slightly rotated front tooth? I hear of some people, who after finishing with the Inman Aligner, wear clear aligners for some weeks to further move their teeth (not the clear aligner you wear at night for maintenance). What kind of movement can this clear aligner give and would it help to correct a rotated tooth?

    In some cases after wearing an inman alligner, a few clear alligners may be required to correct certain tooth positions. This of course may be indicated in your case, but best to speak to your dentist.
