Help I really need advice

OK I really do not know what to do. I went for 2 consults with 2 different Orthodontists. Both agree that Invisalign is best for me because of poor enamel development.

Re: Problem with expander ?

If your pain is going into your jaw and into your ear that's a sign of infection I would call your doctor about that! Ulcers are one thing but you shouldn't have the secondary pain!

Re: How often do you have your teeth cleaned?

My ortho recommended twice a year and my insurance won't pay for more! but with invisalign you're brushing your teeth more frequently anyway so you shouldn't need to go every 3 months unless it's a personal preference!

Re: Skipping one set of tray as per ortho

I would maybe have your othodontist call the company and make sure your tray wasn't made in error..b/c if it was maybe your other ones could be faulty as well even if they fit
