Well it’s been only six weeks since I had the Inman Aligner fitted and it’s been an interesting experience to date!  The first few days were quite horrible because I found it so difficult to talk and I was convinced I would wimp out.  But this was impossible because by day 4 I had noticed that my wonky tooth was moving and even my sceptical partner, who laughed at me constantly for the first 48 hours, admitted something was happening and stopped laughing!  So this made me stick to my guns and I gradually got used to the aligner and now I am quite comfortable with it.  I do take it out if I meet clients or if I go out with friends but I have worn it for at least 12-16 hours every day, sometimes more.

When I went for my check up with Dr Tim he seemed very pleased with my progress and has now put additional “buttons” on the tooth that needs to move ever so slightly more. He showed me the pictures of my original smile just to remind me of the progress, but I don’t need to be reminded because every time I look in the mirror I marvel at the result!  Dr Tim reckons only three more weeks and then I will be fitted with a more discreet aligner and I am looking forward to that!  Despite the early discomfort, this has been a pretty easy ride and I am absolutely amazed at how quickly it’s working!
