Invisalign aligners are used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, as well as fix overbites and gaps between the teeth. The treatment involves wearing clear, plastic trays that are custom-designed to fit your mouth, making Invisalign a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces. LEARN MORE ›

Hello Realself Community, I'm a 28 year old who decided to go through the Invisalign journey. This is the biggest investment I've done for myself so far. So I am very very excited ! When I was 13, I started wearing metal braces as every other teenager. I received my treatment in Istanbul... READ MORE

Growing up, I had a decent enough smile with mostly straight teeth that getting braces never crossed my mind. It wasn't until in college that I started to notice that my teeth were slowly shifting. I started to see a little bit of crowding on my bottom teeth but nothing too major to stop me... READ MORE

I have 19 sets of aligners totalling 9 months. My teeth aren't that bad but could be better and more straight. I'm currently on my second day. Wearing my aligners for 22 hours a day. My tongue hurts a lot. I have a strange white line on both sides at the bottom of my tongue. I think I will try... READ MORE

Tray 1 – 24 hours in :: Wow, those are some really bad pics of my mouth! But hey, I'm hoping at the end of this journey they will be a great reminder of how far I came and that it was (fingers crossed) totally worth it. I've never really *loved* my teeth – but didn't *hate* them either. ... READ MORE

So far, so good. I am nearing the last few days of my 2nd set of aligners. The whole thing is expected to take about 20 months. I am 53 years old. I had braces in high school on my top arch only, and was never 100 percent happy with my teeth, so I finally decided to fo something about it,... READ MORE

Since I have found these reviews incredibly helpful to me in making the decision whether to try Invisalign, I thought I would add my own experience. I got my first tray put on yesterday. Will post pictures of what my teeth look like at the start so we can see how well this is working and how... READ MORE

Be warned—long post! I started the Invisalign process in October with an orthodontic consultation, scans in November before unrelated minor gum surgery, impressions in December after healing from that surgery. Early in January I reviewed and approved my treatment plan which include ~11... READ MORE

I had my invisalign put on on April 9, 2015. Add me to that team of people who had never seen or heard of attachments and wound up getting them on most of their teeth. That day was probably the worst day of my journey (hopefully). I really started to second guess the whole thing, mostly... READ MORE

I will be starting my journey by having all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted next week, on Tuesday 14th of October, then will have the impressions for my trays taken on Monday 17th of November. I have both of my top wisdom teeth, which aren't causing me any real trouble other than they are now... READ MORE

Well, like all of all of I have alway been less than satisfied with my smile and decided to do something about it. So I decided that this would be the year that I take my dental health to the next level. I started with all the neglected (normal dental phobia) check up, cleaning, fillings, and... READ MORE

I've had a skew front tooth for many years that has made me self conscious. I never smile in photos so I'm hoping to fix that over the next 20 weeks with invisalign. After taking the teeth impressions it took about a month before heading back to the dentist to collect my first two trays of ten... READ MORE

I went to consulation last month , it's costing me 2995 out of pocket. Last week I went in to approve treatment plan. I need four wisdom teeth and one other tooth extracted before I start. My official first day will be June 18 to start treatment, I will have attachments on almost all visible... READ MORE

I will get my first set of aligners tomorrow! Yayy! I'm so excited, yet nervous about the pain. To add to my anxiety, I have read the stories about discoloration, keeping them clean and bad smells. I definitely don't want bad breath. Appreciate all the tips and can't wait to see what works... READ MORE

I've always neglected going to the dentist because of a bad experience. I found this really good dentist who said I either get 8 teeth pulled or invisalign because my teeth are really crooked. I wanted invisalign because I wanna feel better about myself. I really hate how my teeth are so this is... READ MORE

Finally getting my teeth fixed! When I was 14 my last baby tooth fell but a k9 was growing behind it already and that k9 has messed up my teeth ever since! I didn't mind until recently that my tooth started poking at my lip. My dad refused to pay for braces that avoided getting teeth removed.... READ MORE

I did not really care about my teeth in high school. I always think that I had okay teeth. But as more and more of my friends finished with their braces, I started to see a huge difference. My teeth are a mess! and I get so self-conscious ever since I started college. I had braces when I was in... READ MORE

Hi Everyone. I have been inspired to track and share my journey with Invisalign after reading all of your posts. I have always had a deep bite and am pretty sure I should have had braces when I was a kid, but my Brother was the one who got them because his teeth were worse than mine. I have... READ MORE

After a few years of working hard to get my teeth and gums healthy again in order to get braces, I was informed that I was a candidate for Invisalign! Finally I'd reached that goal and began my Invisalign journey. The next goal? A great smile! I did a HUGE amount of research and reading other's... READ MORE

(Week 1) I just started my invisalign treatment. I have an overbite, and my lower teeth are arched. My bite is way off so when I chew my bottom teeth will hit the gums behind my front teeth if I'm not careful. If the clincheck animation is correct, this treatmant plan should correct my... READ MORE

I've always been selfconcious of my smile. My upper canine tooth never came down all the way and I had some crowding. I've always wanted Invisalign and finally began my career and am able to pay for it :). I started in January and I am almost halfway done! I don't have anything negative to say... READ MORE
