Re: How many aligners would have been too many for you

My treatment was 14 trays, but I think I could've managed double that if I had to. Any more though, and I'd have just gone with traditional braces. I love snacking too much!

Re: Poll: Did You Have An Allergic Reaction to Invisalign?

My first tray gave me quite a sore throat, but no issues after that. I believe that Invisalign can, however, prolong colds and infections and that it's wise to disinfect your trays regularly while you're unwell.

Re: Invisalign attachments? Overall experience?

I saw my Clincheck before my dentist accepted it, so was aware of how many attachments I'd have and where. Don't worry too much about the number, they're quite discreet - but I would reconsider having attachments on the front teeth as they can be more visible.

Re: My experience don't get Invisilign

I'd like to echo the previous poster; it's important to remember that Invisalign is a product and the skill of your dentist will determine how well it works for you. It isn't the same everywhere, so it's important to pick an experienced provider. Also, teeth shift back regardless of whether you had ...

Re: How painful can invisalign get?

I found my first tray extremely painful - to the point where I wondered if it was worth it! But after that, the pain rarely bothered me and I got quite used to it. Don't let the pain put you off. :)
