Dentist recommended I get braces to fix my newly formed black triangles. Stuck and looking for your advice!

Hi everyone. I'm 27/m. I recently have had some issues with black triangles appearing. After a few consultations with multiple dentists and a periodontist as well, their opinions have varied from bad bite, bruxism, hard brushing, and gingivitis. I've fixed the latter two. My concerns surround fixing...

Does anyone have a pano of before and after braces?

I was really curious how it changed the roots and other non-visible parts of the teeth and mouth.

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

I didn't know this was so common. I'll update if I end up having any reactions but good to know that it's a possibility.

Re: What did you pay for your treatment?

Wow, I thought 6000 was the standard. Seems like it's on the upper end from these responses. Good to know as I'm going into my consultations soon.

Re: How Many Hours w/o Invisalign is "Bad"?

I was a little worried about this if I end up getting Invisalign since I'm a slow eater and I heard brushing immediately after eating is bad...so if I take 45 minutes to eat each meal, 3 meals that's over 2 hours already. Then I wait 30 minutes before brushing... guess I'll have to eat faster or jus...

Re: Anyone worried their smiles won't be what they wanted?

I'm getting my braces soon, just waiting for my wisdom teeth extractions first. For me, I have an obsessive personality with everything. So now with my teeth, I notice every little thing wrong with it. I know I'll do everything I can in terms of finding the best orthodontist, taking care of my teeth...

Re: Really depressed...side effects of extractions?!

That's interesting. You should take weekly photos of your face just to make sure you aren't creating problems in your head, not to say that you are. It's just good to have objective things to look at. Not being able to close your lips without straining sounds like a pretty definitive problem though....
