  1. T4B trainer appliance causing gum problems?

    Hello, I have had the Damon clear system for a few months, and have had problems with broken brackets falling off at night due to grinding. My ortho just got me a T4B appliance trainer, and I used it for the first time last night. It is very comfortable and I slept soundly. However, when I woke up this morning, and when I took it out, my mouth felt a little bloody, and my gums had been pulled down in places ( i think this is from suction)...like my gums had been pulled down farther in-between and over my teeth in places! I'm freaking out! Will my gums go back to normal?! Thanks

  2. Here are some pics. You can see where it was pulled down and you can also see the other side which is still good. 2gum.jpg1gum.jpg
