Discussions about treatment with invisible braces that use clear aligners, such as Invisalign, OrthoClear, the Red White and Blue system, etc.

An ortho told me she could treat me with Invisalign following treatment with a TMJ specialist. It's been nearly a year with 24/7 splint wear, and I'm considering having her treat me when I finish any month now. Another ortho told me Invisalign wouldn't be best for my case (as in he wouldn't treat it with Invisalign; it isn't an option with him). Are any of you getting Invisalign treatment with TMJ, and if so, how is it going? Thanks!
I have gotten several and I do mean several consultations with many orthodontists and 1 out of 9 said that they would be able to treat me with invisalign but it wouldn't be the greatest of all results and that I would likely spending more time with invisalign then I would with traditional braces.
I have TMJ and have seen several dentists over the past year. After not being happy with recommendation of total mouth restoration from one dentist I decided to go back to my general dentist who recommended invisilign. I figured it would be the least invasive all the treatments and seemed to make sense. I am now into the second week of my first tray, I know this is a big commitment. Keeping my fingers crossed that I will get used to wearing them and that this will just become routine. I am hoping this message board will be informative and supportive during my journey.
