Teeth tipping whilst expanding
Do teeth tip back after using a removable expander?
I haven't seen any tipping with my palate expander, and I'd be surprised if it actually happens.
When you chew, your teeth come together, just like the teeth of a zipper. If there was tipping, it's probably self corrected by this process.
what expander are you using?
im currently using the yplate expander but looks as if I’m molars have tipped slightly and I am having resistance expanding any further. Currently on 8.75mm and can not turn every other day like I used to so I’m actually turning every 3-5 days which I read some people are doing.
