Anyone else put weight ON with Invisalign?! :(

Well, I'm on Tray 5/29 and have just discovered I've put weight on (around 5 or 6 lbs) since starting my treatment :( I smugly thought that I would automatically lose weight as I couldn't just snack willy nilly without having to remove or brush. It's probably no mystery, as instead of snacking (whic...

Re: Invisalign progress app questions

There is a link to the App Store/Google Play on the Invisalign website or just search 'invisalign' on the App Store. Still deciding if I want to use it though!

Invisalign progress app questions

I've just downloaded the official Invisalign progress app, where you take a photo with every tray change to track tooth movement. However, I glanced through the terms and conditions and it seems that once you upload/save your photos on the app, it automatically gives Invisalign the right to use your...

Re: Align Technology Introduces Changing Invisalign Every 7 Days

Re: Benefits of transitioning to Invisalign

I'm on a course of Invisalign treatment where the orthodontist will use traditional fixed braces if I'm not happy with the Invisalign results or if it isn't going to plan. He can also file or add (with porcelain material) to teeth if needed. I chose Invisalign for lots of reasons (not being keen on ...
