I am thinking of switching to ceramic too. I'm glad I am not the only one. I have recently heard a lot of bad endings with invisalign and I don't want the uncertainty. My case is a bit complex and I want real results. It's only been a few months but even at this stage things are getting a bit behind...

Sorry to hear about the IPR being so bad:( I had some done a few weeks ago, it was a 0.4mm and by 0.3mm it was starting to hurt and bleed. They ortho just told me to go home and get the rest of it done on my next visit. When I went back it was over really fast and didn't hurt at all. Do you know how...

The first few days were a bit rough, it took me 10-15 mins to get the trays out! :shock: It got better though, after a couple of days I could get them out in about 10 seconds! It gets a lot easier once you get the hang of it. For me it wasn't that they were really tight, it was this fear that I was ...

I didn't have a lisp after the first few days. It seemed to go away once I got more confident with the aligners.

Hi dale, thanks..

Something my ortho mentioned about a new invisalign patient. They don't have to go to his office. He said it was $50 off for me and I think $100 for the new patient. If anyone is thinking about invis let me know! I would be happy to send it to them.

Hi pearlie Sorry to hear about your ortho issues! I hope he calls you back. My ortho told me about the attachments when I went for the first appointment, he was really unfront about them even though I don't have any on my front teeth. I think I would be annoyed if he hadn't of mentioned them and the...

I have 6 speedbumps in total but thankfully none of them are on my front teeth. Looks like we all got the first tray around the same time.

Oh and I hated the IPR! I don't have to have any more done for a while though.

New to board and Invisalign

Hi Everyone I just got Invisalign a week ago and so far so good. The first few days were kind of rough but other than that things are going great. My threatment is supposed to last 12 months. If anyone wants the Invisalign referral coupon let me know. I haven't taken any pics yet but I'm planning on...
