Can I still have Inman Aligner braces with my tongue condition?

January 8th, 2013
Q.

I have a tongue thrusting issue, which have caused problems with my front teeth, which now go forward, because of the many years with my condition. Would you be able to tell me whether the inman aligner would be a good choice for me in looking for a brace? Also, what can I do about the continued tongue thrusting and what can I do to stop my teeth from moving back to the way they were before, if my tongue thrusting is not treated properly I would really like a straight ‘flat’ smile for once in my life. Thank you for your help doctor

What is the best way to put teeth back that have been moved because of tongue thrusting?

January 27th, 2012
Q.

Hi doctor I do hope you can help. Do you know the best way to put teeth back that have been moved because of tongue thrusting? I have had the problem for pretty much all of my life and so my front teeth stick out more because of it. I do not like my smile and would love to have a straight one for once. However, if the inman aligner is for me and i have it straightened what do i do afterwards? I mean my tongue will still be ‘doing its thing’ so to speak, how do i stop all the work being erased once `i have finished with the brace?

very much hope you can help me with this!

My son is 13 years old, is he too young to have the Inman Aligner?

August 23rd, 2011
Q.

hello

what is the minimum age that you can wear the inman aligner at? My son is 13 and his front teeth are making him feel really self conscious and uncomfortable. They have started to affect the way he speaks and he is becoming more and more withdrawn as time goes by. The two front teeth protrude quite a bit, which is the source of all his problems. I don’t, however, want to put his teeth in danger by rushing into orthodontic work his teeth can’t take. Do you think he is a suitable candidate for your inman aligner?

thank you for any help you can give
