Hi! I don't normally post, but I wanted to reply to your question because I am using Invisalign to correct my open (now closed!) bite and I've been thrilled with the results. I talked to five different orthos, a few of which said it absolutely could not be done, a couple who said "no problem! super ...

I sympathize with you -- I almost had panic attacks the week before I got my attachments, and I almost backed out of the treatment altogether. I have 12 attachments: 6 upper, 6 lower, on ALL my front teeth. I was so scared, and expected to be semi-traumatized by the experience. This was, luckily, no...

Jaw Clicking?

I'm a little over one week into my 6th tray and my jaw just suddenly started clicking like crazy. I've never had this happen before and I'm concerned. I find it hard to eat because every time I chew it's just clicking constantly. Has anyone else had this issue? Will it go away??

Yeah, I knew I'd have to get them from the start -- although I didn't do enough research and now I really wish I'd asked about getting lingual attachments. Also, as the attachment date gets closer I'm feeling much less confident about it. I paid so much money that I can't really back out but I'm wor...

Does anyone with attachments on their front teeth have pictures? I've been searching for some online for days. I am getting 12 attachments - 6 upper and 6 lower, straight across all of my front teeth. I have a slight overbite and overjet and am a hard case for Invisalign, so I accepted that I would ...
