Re: How many attachments before you wish you had normal braces

I don't have time them on my two front teeth, so that helps, but I do have 12. I would never do metal braces though. I think whether you have attachments or metal you are hyper conscious of your mouth. I always refer to "my braces" instead of Invisalign bc it's shorter and people can. Ever tell I'm ...

Re: on my second set, no pain?

This could be normal. I'm on tray 22 of my first set and I rarely have Pain. Slight tightness when I first put them in but that's about it. I've had a mostly painless and easy Invisalign experience thus far.

Re: Scared

That's only one persons opinion and it's always best to shop around before you decide on an ortho and a treatment plan since it's a huge $ and time commitment. I know your concern, all my life I heard I would need braces since Invisalign wasn't an option I just never had the $. I went to a dentist r...

Re: Braces after Invisalign?

My ortho offered this option to me if I'm not satisfied with my teeth after Invisalign. I was really torn between braces and Invis, but I went with it due to age and they seem easier to maintain gum health. It should be interesting to see my feelings when I'm done with treatment. My first set of ali...

Re: Invisalign attachments? Overall experience?

I expected to have some and I'm glad I only have twelve and none on my two front teeth. I don't mind though I want to get the best results possible. I don't plan on doing this again. I don't know how anyone who has braces could let their teeth get crooked again. I lost one attachment the first night...

Re: help packing up invisalign and travel kit

I only carry one of those Invisalign retainer cases and a chewy in my purse. I leave a toothbrush, mouthwash, floss in my desk at work. If I make plans to have dinner or something after work, I'll prob have a little beauty case with my toothbrush and case, but my daily crossbody is too small for all...

Re: Newbie here!

[quote="AshleyRoosa"]15-18 months. I'm still waiting on my clincheck. I am starting to get a little freaked out because I've been finding others who have a missing tooth- waiting for an implant and Invisalign made a spot for a tooth on the aligners and people have to shove wax in it or something. I ...

Re: Newbie here!

Hey! I'm an adult getting Invisalign and your experience is similar to mine. I def moved a little too fast without asking enough questions, but I've wanted braces for a while now, and everything fell into place with my insurance that would cover a portion of it. I'm transitioning out of the job is c...

How Long Did Your Aligners Take to Come In?

I can't tell if I'm being impatient or this is taking forever. I had my iTero scan 3/15/16 and my aligners "should be" in by the end of next week, but I'm not holding my breath. I feel like so many reviews onine saying the scan made things move quicker and lots of people got theirs faster than quote...
