Re: Back from the Ortho, now decision time. Fair prices?

I've worn both braces and Invisalign and there are pros and cons to each. Invisalign are much kinder to the gums and I like the fact you can clean your teeth as normal. Flossing is a real pain in braces. That said, I had two cavities with Invisalign and none with braces. I think the lack of saliva f...

Re: black triangles

I know this is a pretty old thread, but just wanted to post a question here anyway. I really want to get IPR to correct black triangles from my previous adventure with orthodontics five years ago. I didn't know enough about it then, so did make enough fuss to get them dealt with at the time. I'm act...

Re: Has anyone ever asked for their money back?????

Yes, braces were mentioned as a possibility at an extra cost of $1500 AU, which apparently only covers the cost of materials (yeah right!). I think that was possibly mentioned after I'd already signed on the dotted line. I don't think braces are the issue though, and if I did need them I wouldn't be...

Has anyone ever asked for their money back?????

Probably a stupid question, but has anyone ever been given at least a partial refund because the treatment was obviously just not working out and their Invasalign provider had to admit defeat? I'm pretty certain that my provider doesn't really know what they are doing and I have parted with a lot of...

Re: Any of you not happy with your results after treatment?

By spaces, do you mean the black triangles at the gum line that often occur when previously crowded teeth are straightened out and the gum no longer nicely fills the space? I've read on here that they are often filled by shaving a tiny part of the tooth so that they can be pushed together. If this i...

Re: Before Pictures

Thanks for the pics. You're teeth are not so bad!

I'm sure the $6500 will be well worth it and it's not such a bad quote compared to others on here.

Good luck!

I think you have to post seven times here before you're eligible for one. I've just signed up too, so this is my second post!!

IPR for Black Triangles

Hi Has anyone gone into braces or Invisalign just to close black triangles? My first experience with braces left me with an open bite (now largely corrected by wisdom tooth extraction) and black triangles. This was not explained to me as a possible side-effect before treatment. I am now back in Invi...
