New to Invisalign

#1 Post by Braces2016 »

First of all, i would like to thank you for this forum.

Let me introduce myself, I'm 25 years old and Masculin

I'm actuall 1 week into treatment. I am going to have 51 trays on upper and lower arch.

21 Attachements and Elastics.

Elastics and Attachements will be on at my next visit, it means on 12 April.

I knew i needed braces but didn't had the courage to make an appointment with the Orthodontist.

This year i took everythink in hand and fund an Ortho, did my first consultation in January and decided to start treatment directly.

Had the X.Rays and molds done 2 days after.

My treatment began last week, i felt very nervous as i was coming nearer the ortho office.

I can't bealive i did it, it's now normal to have the aligners in,

Nobody did notice that i got Invisalign.

I felt very nervous as i went out of the ortho office.

Thank you for your support and your questions, i needed to share my experience to feel more confortable with it.

Invisalign is great and you will only get used to it. I am on 27/41 trays and 16 attachments so far. Elastics are a pain but even with braces you will need elastics

Zara9, how do you manage to wear invisalign aligners at the same time as ceramic brackets and high pull headgear?
Sectional brace with Damon clear brackets fitted to front 6 upper teeth 3 January 2012
Brackets added to premolars 2 April 2012
Estimated treatment time originally 6-9 months
. Brace removed on 22 July 2013 after 18 months and 19 days
Now enjoying bonded upper retainer plus part time essix/hawley( I have both)
