I just accepted my clincheck for invisalign 2 weeks ago.. the otho's office told me it takes 5-10 working days for the aligners to arrive.. but it appears everyone had to wait much longer than that..
How long did everyone have to wait after their projected treatment was accepted?

I actually never accepted my treatment, my doctor did it for me. I didn't care, I just wanted to get started. That was about 3 years ago, and 3 years of maturity makes a big difference with a young 20 year old. Now I would have been pissed at my ortho if he accepted the treatment before I had a change to approve it. Eh, what can you do?

I know I went in for molds in November and started treatment in January. I also know my aligners got lost in the mail for 2 weeks. So I'd guess the time between them accepting and me getting them was a month, including the lost mail.
