Hi :-1 I had a 4.5 mm gap and I have a permanent retainer behind the two front teeth and also wear a hawley every night. I thought the same as you, this guy will never get a permanent wire to fit. Lo and behold, the wires are so thin it went in without a hitch. Took about 3 days before my tongue dec...

Well, in my case it was such a tiny bit of shaping that I doubt if it would have made any difference if he had waited until after the retainer impressions. It's truly amazing how little they take to make such a big difference. What kind of retainers are you getting?

Hi all! :-1 I did Invisalign on just the top. My ortho said I could do just them IF the molds showed there was room and it wouldnt throw off my bite. I got a price of 5400 for both or 3900 for just the top. After a year of it I was really glad i chose just the top. I felt like it was 1/2 the hassle....

my ortho was afraid the gap between my front 2 teeth (4.5mm) would return without wearing a retainer 24-7. So he put the bonded on just those teeth and thought the hawley at night would keep the rest of my teeth in their assigned spots LOL.

Just got back from a cleaning and the hygenist said I was doing a good job of keeping it clean. I use floss up to th...
