Invisalign and eating fruit

I am hoping to have Invisalign soon, however I hope someone may be able to answer a question. Whenever I eat any fruit I always - as my dentist advised - wait for an hour before cleaning my teeth due to the fact that the acids in the fruit damage the tooth enamel. However, I understand with Invisali...

Re: Massive problems with teeth sensitivity - can they stand IPR?

Many thanks for taking the time to reply and for raising this very interesting point. The sensitivity is definitely not caused by too much flossing as my teeth are so tightly packed together that I have never been able to floss between them.

Re: Massive problems with teeth sensitivity - can they stand IPR?

Re: Massive problems with teeth sensitivity - can they stand IPR?

Hi, many thanks for your reply. I should have mentioned that they did suggest an extraction but that I am totally against that. (Yes I know I haven't left myself many options) My teeth started crossing when I was in my teens (I am 42 now), unfortunately braces were never suggested to me when I was s...

Massive problems with teeth sensitivity - can they stand IPR?

Hi, I'm new to this forum and hope someone may be able to help. I have (for years) had massive problems with sensitive teeth, I don't just mean a bit of sensitivity when I eat something hot etc, I mean when the sensitivity strikes I can barely chew (anything) it is that bad. I use sensitive toothpas...
