ClinCheck is back! Some interesting comments from my dentis

Well I got my clincheck back. How can I post it on here? This is what my dentist is saying, what should I do??!! Your lower K9 on your left needs to be angled a little bit due to the movement needed to get it into position. Also, the way the video shows the treatment it is reducing your profile and ...

Wow "text book mouth" is what he said huh? That sounds almost exactly like the line my orthodontist told me as well, and he's also a "Premier" provider. I guess time will tell, I hope I don't regret my decision. I have faith that he can straighten my teeth and give me a beautiful smile, I'm just wor...

NO FUN!

Ugh, I hope that I can figure out how to properly manage it... Either that, or maybe my liver and my waistline will be a lot happier from the reduction in drinks consumed!

LOL

Mark, if you're not happy with the results go to another orthodontist and get another opinion!! It may cost you more money, but your health is top priority and you shouldn't have to put up with cement on the back of your teeth. Did your orthodontist use a diamond polisher to polish the teeth back ou...

Update, I decided to go ahead and give him a try even though I'm still skeptical of the treatment time he promised. The worst I guess that can happen is it will end up taking longer... ;) Or I'll have to go back and get regular braces when I'm done to help correct other issues, but at least I'll hav...

Alcohol and invisalign

I got my impressions yesterday and will now anxiously await for my Clincheck and the first set of trays to arrive! I have a question about removal. My dentist told me I need to take them out whenever I drink any fluids or eat food. Is this really true? The reason I ask is that I love to drink wine, ...

Fees

My orthodontist in San Diego, CA is charging me $5750 which incluides Invisilign and 2 essex retainers at the end. It's estimated treatment will take 8-9 months. He offers payments with no interest spread out over the 8 months of treatment, with $2000 minimum down, so I'll be coughing up some seriou...

Are all invisalign dentists created equal?

I recently had an apointment with a dentist here in San Diego who received an excellence award from Invisalign, and he is promising some incredible results. He says he can straighten my teeth in 8 months with invisalign when other dentists and orthodontists were telling me it would be 18-24 months w...

Reason for invisalign

Sure, many people want to get invisalign because they are self-conscious about having braces on. However, I think there are also a large number of people, such as myself, who LOVE to have clean teeth and love to floss, and when you get braces in, it's a LOT harder to take care of your teeth no matte...
