Re: What are appropiate ways to clean essix retainers?

P has a product that is specifically for retainer and mouth guard. Anyone knows if that might turn the essix/vivera yellow?

Re: iTero Digital Impressions

My personal experience is that the trays made with the scan fit a lot better! Looks like so and feels like so. You know how the ones made with the impression would go in and out easily the 2nd week onward. I'm wearing the new ones for the 3rd week and they are still snugly fit.

Sounds like an "advanced" version of bonding to me. Hope that helps!

Re: Loose Tooth

You'll be fine BraceComfort.

I'll be having my 2nd round of IPR and will be ready for the wobble!

Re: Loose Tooth

Thank you for your reply. I had gum graft (upper right molar) prior to the invisalign treatment. I, too, have triangles and because of that, my ortho didn't recommend any extractions. During IPR (my first visit), I was in a panic - to me, it was a very traumatic experience. I saw my ortho today and...

Re: Loose Tooth

Hi Everyone - Please forgive this belated follow-up but after waiting for almost a year (periodontal issues) to start my invisalign treatment, I finally started it last week! I, too, have noticed that one of my tooth is loose. It's is slightly mobile when I push it with my tongue and I'm in a panic...

Re: vent...

One of the reasons I chose my orthodontist is because she does ALL the work herself, from the impressions to ligs. I got several consultations before getting my braces and I saw too many offices that were essentially factories. They had a doctor stooping for 30 seconds to peer in someone's mouth be...

Recession/black triangle/filling during or after treatment

I started my treatment almost one year ago. Unfortunately, I am having both recession and black triangles. I guess I will have to do a gum graft and some bonding after my treatment is completed. I am also planning to get my filling changed to tooth color composite. I am wondering did any of you do a...

Re: Bite concerned after braces

I've had my braces off for probably about 6 years, wearing retainers every night after braces. I'm starting to notices that my overbite and overjet are back. I'm also noticing that my upper retainer wire keeps going up to my gum line every night. Even my lower teeth are touching the back of my fron...

Re: Sick... Do you use (sugarless) cough candy with Invisal

I just started Invisalign and managed to get a cold a mere two days into it. I am a teacher and have to talk a lot which isn't easy with a razor throat. I usually use Halls cough candies but wasn't sure what to do now that I have the aligners. How did you guys navigate your first cold? Are sugar fr...
