Re: Invisalign at 60, bucket list

Wow that is a pretty horrible set of teeth if I do say so myself. If that isn't motivation to keep going then nothing is. I will surely regret waiting this long to do this.

Re: Phase 2 at 30, never too late.

How are things going for you? Are you seeing improvement yet? Did you talk to your ortho about Acceledent ? Hope all is well.

Re: Braces after 60

It's not such an old thread ...I say go for it. Don't wait until you are 60 like me. Now I wish I had done it much sooner. I could have had a nice smile for all those years that I can't get back. :D

Re: Invisalign at 60, bucket list

Ahhh thanks so much "Bracesat57" you are so encouraging. I like the comment about friends not being able to see them without their glasses. I'm sure I will have moments of doubt but will hang in there because I sgree that it will be worth it.

Thanks again to all who posted, Ann
