Re: Acceledent ok for bone loss?

can you say more about the patients with osteoporosis? that sounds reassuring. i'm in my mid-40s and had some tricky bone problems (osteoblasts in feet, surgery, grew back) and osteoporosis of the pelvis. i thought acceledent would be one extreme or the other, either be wonderful or contraindicated.

Re: How painful can invisalign get?

I am about to start Invisalign, and I asked my friend who also did it in her 40s. She described the initial pain like early child labor and forget tylenol, she used narcotic painkillers the first night. So anything less than that, I'll be happy.

Original Acceledent vs Acceledent Aura

Does anyone (patients and orthos) have any user experience and insight to compare the two versions? I'm very curious.
