Lip bumper is a part of your orthodontic treatment. The lip bumper appliance is designed to gain space and make room for your lower teeth. It does this by moving your molars toward the back of your mouth or allowing the front teeth to drift forward. In some cases the bumper is used to stop a lower lip contraction habit thus allowing the lower teeth to align. At first the appliance will be tied in and not be able to be removed. In time the Doctor may untie the bumper allowing it to come out for brushing. At some point you will be asked to wear the bumper nights only. This is done to maintain the correction you gained during full time wear.
