Minor Tooth Movement

Minor tooth movement is great if you’ve had orthodontics (braces) in the past and have a few teeth have shifted, or maybe you just have one or two teeth that are slightly out of alignment. We use a thermoformed plastic device with a pressure point in it to move the tooth/teeth in question by pressure. Space + Force + Time = Tooth Movement. These appliances need to be worn as often as possible throughout the day, except when eating or drinking anything other than water. Multiple appliances may be created with different pressure points until the tooth/teeth are in the recommended position, then a final retainer will be created to be worn at night to halt any future movement.
