It just depends on your situation and whether what needs to be fixed requires the help of attachments.

I am a hardcore clencher and I do grind my teeth at night as well and I have had no problems whatsoever. No rips, holes, I haven't ground through the aligners or come close to it. They are sturdier than they look, trust me.

I am a really tense person and clench(and hard too) probably 12 hours a day(on weekends it is better) and I know for a fact that I grind my teeth when I sleep as well and I have never damaged an aligner. I was worried about that when I started but don't worry!

It was moving at first, but for awhile now, that tooth seems to be having a bigger gap each tray, it doesn't seem to be following the expected movement. This is my shorter tooth, and my dentist seems eager to put a veneer on it, I was hoping to make it look as good as possible with straightening an...

Congrats on your Invisalign! Nice to see another one of us around here. You'll notice real change soon enough. One day it doesn't look much different and then the next aligner BAM! drastic. My only (slight) concern now is my length of time in trays...i have 14 for the top and for the bottom. But tha...

Did your dentist or Hygienist nick your gums when you had the cleaning? That happened my last cleaning, this was before I started invisalign and I didn;t realize it happened at the time because I find that when they are cleaning it always feels like they are touching the gums and it feels weird. The...

I've got straight teeth but just a gap on my top and bottom front teeth... I'm assuming the gaps are going to close REALLLLLLY SLOWLLLLYYYYYYYYY... Maybe I should be waiting till #15/30 before I start seeing changes... I started really noticing a difference with my gap at about aligner 7-9. By then...

Quite honestly, I almost feel that way without the aligners now. I promise you will get used to them. Soon you wont even realize you have them in your mother.

Thanks! No, I haven't had one yet(nor do I know if I am going to anymore). I actually booked an appointment with an actual periodontist and he asked me flat out if I had any pain. I told him no. He asked me what stage of treatment I am in(aparently it is best to do it- if there isn't a major reason ...

Yes, this has happened to me as well. It first started off with just one lateral incisor not having a perfect fit, then the bottoms started to not fit so great and then the other lateral and my centrals are all not as tight to the teeth as I'd like.(this is over a period of 7-10 aligners) No idea if...
