Re: 2nd time with Braces...

Onto tray 4. This tray was VERY tight. This was the most sore I have been with the Invisalign. After the third day, I'm good, however. Doctor says I'm right on track. I have 16 trays total and it's strange to think I'm a quarter of the way finished! Time really does fly! Now! Let's start seeing some...

Re: 2nd time with Braces...

Congrats! That must feel awesome to know you're almost done! As for me, I notice a small difference if I stare but I guess I can't imagine myself with a new smile. Exciting!

Re: 2nd time with Braces...

Hello! I'm on tray 3 and I still haven't really noticed a difference. I do find that I like the way my smile looks with the Invisalign on. Is that strange? I go in on the 9th of January to get my next set of trays. According to my dentist, I'll start to notice change halfway through the treatment. S...

Re: I prefer my teeth with Invisalign

It's only been 6 days, but I DO prefer the trays. Maybe it's a confidence issue, but I feel it "protects" my smile! =)

2nd time with Braces...

Hello everyone. My name is Lucas. 17 years ago I had braces to correct an overbite and buck teeth. After 2 years of a negligent dentist, my braces were removed due to the poor maintenance. 6 days ago, I received my first set of trays: 18 upper and 15 lower. I'm so impatient. I know 8 months isn't a ...

Re: For everyone who has invisalign, is it really worth it?

[quote="wildcat03"]Had conventional braces as a teen. Two straight years, and my orthodontist totally jacked up the end. [/quote] Same with me. 17 years later, I can afford clear braces. Why not.

Re: First day with Invisalign

New to the site. Been wearing Invisalign for 6 days now. I find that I have to "speed" eat so I can stay within the 22 hour window. Alas, I'm losing weight. So that's good. =)

Re: What led you to choose invisalign or similar?

New to the site. Excited to have Invisalign. =) I had braces when I was 15 but my orthodontist didn't do a good job. He cancelled several appointments and I had to get a new dentist to remove them. Needless to say, my work wasn't fully complete. My teeth had improved but I still felt very conscious ...
