Definitely think its normal with a little movement in the front teeth. Your teeth are always abit "wobbly" even if you have not got them done...

Invisalign works over small distances... If you have held the Invisalign trays in your hands you will understand. They are very strong between two adjacent points (say from one tooth to an adjacent tooth - <1 to 5 milimetres maybe) and can thus move teeth using the strength in the plastic (it will k...

Re: Another braces story

Hi there! Great job with your thread here... I can see the I have more or less the same "problem" as you had. Crowding of the upper front teeth with one of them sticking out and bottom front teeth crowding. So I am currently getting my arches widened with a palate braces (loose, so I can take it out...

Invisalign - what it can and cannot do

Hi all! I would like to propose that someone assemble the things that we know about Invisalign do's and dont's in a sticky thread, because you really have to read alot of threads to get some kind of idea about its effectiveness and there are alot of diverse opinions on its effectiveness. I did alot ...

Re: Invisalign ruined my bite...I don't understand what happ

I think someone is trying to troll here... :paperbag: That said, I would advise EVERYONE getting theirs done, to see a REAL orthodontist and NOT just trust a dentist who's taken a 14 day course in Invisalign to correct your teeth.
