Hi, My attachments were taken off for refinements. I am sure you can ask to have them removed as 6 weeks is a long time. However I only waited 2 weeks for my refinements. In the meantime while you are waiting for your refinements you will have to wear your last set however, I only had to wear them a...

I did regularly drink alcohol with my trays in. I used to drink white wine with them tried beer aswell but must say the trays looked pretty horrible after having a few beers. It's fine as long as you keep rinsing them out.
It was impossible for me to eat anything with the trays in.

I agree, people were never really interested in me wearing invisalign. and they would very often forget and offer me snacks. I am finished with my treatment now, I have to wear a retainer every night. It's so nice to eat whenever I want to but I still keep brushing my teeth after every meal. I guess...

I have just finished my treatment and have to wear a retainer every night for the next 6 months and then 2-3 times a week for life. But I am fine with that. I know it is necessary so the teeth don't start moving back.
Good luck with your treatment, it's worth it.

My refinements and retainers were included in the treatment. If you are too worried about that why not give your orthodontist a call whether you will have to pay any extra.

I had the same problem. I was almost finished with my trays but wasn't very happy with the results. I had to wear 8 sets of refinements and they brought the results I wanted. So don't worry too much, refinements are additional trays , you just wear Invisalign for a bit longer than planned.

One more week till I finish Invisalign!!

This is a thread for all those who are still hesitating whether to get invisalign or not. The result is absolutely worth it. My teeth look amazing.They are completely straight and wearing Invisaling has changed their colour so much. They are so much whiter now! I never thought they would look this g...

They are almost invisible. I had 5 attachments during my treatment but none were on my front teeth so they were not visible. It depends where your attachments will be. As mentioned above they are much less visible when the trays are in. The attachments would not be visible on the photos,unless taken...

I have been drinking coffee with the aligners in throughout my whole treatment. I am a coffee addict and my ortho actually said it's ok to drink with the aligners in. I obviously rinse my mouth and clean the aligners straight away otherwise my teeth would stain. I must say I haven't had any problems...

You can ask but only a few people have them at the back of their teeth. I wouldn't worry too much about attachments. They really aren't that visible. Depending on where they are placed they might not be visible at all. I have had 5 attachments during my treatment and they could only be seen if I smi...

I started to feel difference in my bite when I was on tray 3 or 4.But I couldn't really see any difference till tray 10. Invisalign normally moves your back teeth first thats why you can't see a difference straight away. But be patient, time flies with invisalign like someone already advised take ph...

Hi I had all my attachments taken off when I started my refinements and I had absolutely no stains afterwards. So stay calm they don't stain the teeth.
