Invisalign Reviews: TimeThe other benefit of this amazing form of cosmetic dentistry is that the braces are invisible, so your vanity can remain in tact! From your Invisalign reviews we we estimate it should only take between six months and one year – ask your cosmetic dentist what he/she reckons as it depends on your teeth.
You can take them out when you eat and drink if it is more comfortable for you.
Invisalign can help you get the great smile you've always wanted because it's powerful in the same way that metal braces are, without the embarrassment of wearing the ‘old school style’. Finally cosmetic dentistry has caught up with fashion and understands that adults don’t want to look bad for a whole year to get a good smile!
Invisalign Reviews: How often do I need to wear 'em?The only down side is that you need to be committed to having the braces in your mouth all of the time (except for when eating), rather than taking them out as you are able to. In order to get the best results, your cosmetic dentist should advise you to not mess with them so they can do the hard work.
Invisalign Reviews: The Price TagThe only other bad news is the cost. At the moment this form of cosmetic dentistry can cost $3500 and upwards. However, consider the long term impact on your smile and confidence before proceeding. If you get offered a great financing package (low or no interest) which increasingly cosmetic dentists are offering for invisible braces then jump at it.
Invisalign Reviews: Get StartedYou will begin by getting your cosmetic dentist to take dental impressions and photographs before sending them to his supplier who will perform a CT scan and then create a 3-D model which you will apply to your teeth. Invisalign invisible braces is not a messy or painful form of cosmetic dentistry so don’t be nervous.

Dentistry is widely considered necessary for complete overall health. Those in the practice of dentistry are very helpful people. Dental transplant is one of the best practice and relief dentist diseases. http://www.alkaliaesthetics.co.uk/

I find them hard to wear 22 hours a day. I like to drink coffee, but have to limit my time.

The only way for this product to work is to ensure THE DENTIST you get them from is good. Ask how many they have done, before and after pics. The product works - but only if your particular dentist gets your plan right. My dentist is brilliant and I am very happy. I have overcrowding and they are twisting strait and spacing out nicely. They have also widened the arch so that I have a wider smile - they wouldn't have done this with normal braces.

I would recommend using 'Retainerbrite' each morning when you take them out to keep them odor free and lovely and clean. I am on tray 7 from today of 12. They are brilliant. I am able to take them out when scuba diving etc. No body knows I have them in, unless I tell them 0 even then they have to have a REALLY close look. The first few days took a lot of getting used to, but now, I prefer to have them in than not. My teeth have moved steadily without really noticing. I would recommend.

I paid an orthodontist in Boulder 5000$ in full for Invisalign treatment but then I had to move. Dr will not reimburse me for incomplete work and Invisalign refuses to speak to me. They will only talk to the Dr who is keeping my money. I cannot continue treatment unless I pay additional 1000$.

I'm seventeen and I've had invisalign for about four months, and I'll only have them for six. I'm on my 8th tray out of 10! I LOVE invisalign, the only things that are con is brushing (but thats with braces too), and that smell after awhile. My results are looking great, everyone is noticing. If I had gotten braces I would have them for a year to a year and a half, six months seem better to me.

Invisilign works great. I like them because they are removable and comfortable to wear. I highly recommend them to any adult needing braces.

Hi Dana, yes I experienced dry mouth, although the sensation reduced with time. My dentist told me that it a common 'complaint', although theoretically it shouldn't be the case because having something in one's mouth tends to increase saliva. He thought it was just the feel of plastic compared to the feel of one's teeth. Hopefully you'll find the sensation reduces with time. Good luck.

So far i've had invisalign for 1 week, and they are alot to get used to at first, especially the first 3 days. But the only annoying thing is that my mouth gets really dry with the aligners on, i dont know if anyone else has had this side effect, but i must drink 5+ bottles of water a day, which isn't necessarily a negative thing. and i definitely do not eat as much, so it's a great jump start to a diet! I have 2 spaces on my top teeth which is my main problem which i'm praying invisalign fixes! 1 week down, 33 weeks to go!

I'm half way through 21 uppper and 20 lower. Some straightening has happened, but i have reservations that all my front teath will be aligned at the end of the course - one of the top teeth seems way off. When I first wore the braces I nearly 'threw in the towel' - it was so painful and uncomfortable. In my view the retainer bumps are as unsightly as wearing normal braces. The aligners give me a bit of a lisp which affects my self confidence, and therefore when I'm at work and in social situations I leave them out. I don't think this makes any difference to their performance - by the end of the two weeks they feel quite loose which suggests to me that me teeth have moved as much as they should. I have an upper tooth wich has to move right over a lower one and I'm quite worried about how that's going to work and the effect on my bite afterwards. My dentist din't tell me that Invisalign advise only to dring cold water when wearing the aligners. I have not stopped drinking tea, coffee, wine etc. My dentist maintains that it's ok, although I do wonder if tea and coffee weaken teh plastic due to the heat. If I'd known what it was going to be like I would not have embarked on the treatment, but hopefully I wilbe pleased with the end result. At week 21, no matter what the result, I am stopping and will ask for the retainer bumps to be removed. I would advise someone not to have the treatment, but you should be aware it's like wearing a gumshield for a year. And if definitely isn't invisible. Good luck, Dave

I am on my 12th aligner (out of 30) and very impressed with the results until now. I had talking problem for first 2 days, but then it came to very normal. I am loving the aligners.It also controlled my eating pattern and I lost 10 lbs in 2 months without extra effort!

The only bad thing is that my mom isnt so sure it works.I give her internet proof, but she isnt so sure + it is expensive. Any pros for invisalign that would help Persuade my mom?

I am an orthodontist and would like to tell all patients to be aware. I have treated over 300 patients and have used this product for many years. The product is great in the hands of an orthodontist that knows what they are doing. There are many orthodontists and general dentists that don't have enough experience. I back up each one of my cases with FREE braces if I cannot get the results that were promised with Invisalign. Invisalign has a new marketing program on their website that directs you to the offices that are doing the most volume. It does not guarantee anything about the experience level or expertise. Their elite, premiere provider and preferred provider designations are only based on volume. They want to funnel cases to dentists that will slap Invisalign on any patient even if the case outcome is questionable. Make sure you ask your dentist how many cases he or she has personally treated and finished. Also ask about limitations of treatment and if they will finish the treatment for free with braces if you are not satisfied. Anyone confident in their abilities should be able to offer this. Good luck.

I do not recommend Invisalign braces to anyone. At first my treatment went alright. But after I was done, there was still gaps in between my teeth. So my dentist took another impression to see if they can close the gaps a little bit more. After waiting 2 months, my dentist just called me back and told me that they can't do anything about the gaps. I'm going down there at lunch time to talk to them about it. I feel that they promised me something that couldn't deliver. I feel like my dentist should've recommend traditional braces because he would know for sure that they worked!

I started Invisaligns last April 2009. My bottom teeth had extreme crowding, and my upper teeth were not the same depth. I saw those gorgoeus pictures at the dentist office and decided to spring for the $6000 procedure. My crooked teeth had always bothered me. Whenever I looked at photos, my upper teeth looked like some of the teeth were missing. It is now January 2010 and I am still wearing them. I am in the "refinement" stage. The good thing about Invisaligns is that they don't finish until you are absoulutely satisfied. Did they straighten my teeth? Yes. But now there are huge gaps betweent he teeth that have moved. Also, they did not fix the problem with my upper teeth. My dentist says that Invisaligns cannot make my upper teeth look all the same depth. He says that it's a mistake of my former dentist who did my caps 20 years ago and made them too thick. Now he suggests that I get veneers for my 6 front teeth and that means I will have to fork out another $3000. Those pictures of people with straight teeth after using Invisaligns were amazing, and maybe I was naive, but I thought that after shelling out $6000 that my teeth would look lke theirs too. It would have been nice to know that my teeth would never look like theirs unless I fork out more money. Beware people!

age 45 had braces when i was 16 the orthodontist pushed my teeth in to far i did not where retainer after taking off braces. now 25 years later they kept moving and getting worse. now i have 1 tray left and it has been almost 1 year. i see some improvement but no where near a good smile . i can guarantee i am not even close to being done. i also want to add that i have attachments on everyone of my teeth and also rubber bands. this was never told to me until afterwards. anyway bottom line is they are not clear if you have attachments and rubber bands you always want to hide your smile. still not done

I'm on 3rd set of trays. Bottom teeth are crowded and top teeth are fairly straight. Will need to wear for 13 months on bottom and 3 months on top. So far so good. Trays hurt for first couple of days. Seem to be working fairly well. Bottom teeth are straightening out.

I am on my second day of invisalign. I had braces as a teenager. I only have some spacing issues, due to my teeth shifting. I am getting a total of 8 top trays and 10 bottom trays. My top sets don't cover my last molar. They have eliminated that tooth. Has anyone else had this? I am feeling some pressure. Other than that I am fine.

I had overlapping top front tooth which I had corrected when I was about 15, now I'm 27 and they moved back. Also slightly wonky bottom teeth. I got invisalign about a year ago. At the time I was told it was the most basic and easiest to treat problem and would be quick 6 month treatment. My teeth are still no where near straight. I've had 2 lots of refinement. My top wonky tooth is still coming out at an angle but isn't overlapping. My dentist wanted to fill it in to make it look straight! I did not agree and asked for more treatment. The costs are £3500. I have 3 top ones left, and one bottom one. They are still nowhere near straight and if I could go back in time I'd have train tracks again and save my money.

I have almost perfect teeth. No over/under bites, no crowding, no damage looking, almost all teeth are straight...except for the two teeth next to my two front teeth. One on each side. Those two are just a bit overlapping my two front teeth, and because of this i am forced to have somebody correct my mouth. I was hesitant, and hoping that my dad would forget it, but i knew that someday, i would need to correct my teeth. I didnt want to go through all the hassle of metal braces for just two teeth that will barely need alot of time. I especially didnt want to look goofy. Im not vain, but this year i was finally stepping up my image. And then i learned about Invisalign. I was so excited about the fact that i could eat WHATEVER i want, WHENEVER i want, and still look the way that i do. I read tons of review, and most of them were good. But then i came to thise site, and now im scared. I really dont want to have any problems, especially since my families a bit tight on money. Im also wondering, do you have to brush your teeth at school after eating lunch? If someone could post something on here with the first line saying..ANSWER TO CATI:.......i would realllly appreciate it.

Do NOT get invisaligns. They do seem to work well at first. However, two of my teeth receded into my gums and I am now in traditional braces after almost TWO YEARS in Invisaligns. Go with traditional!

WARNING: They work fine for most, and they're comfortable for most ... but for some people (Me!) they hurt like hell due to SHARP EDGES! I guess a lot depends on the quality of the impression but my tongue is always torn and scratched. I'm on my 8th tray. Buyer beware!
