After reading several reviews on Invisalign on this website, I decided to try it myself and write about how I feel. At the consultation with my orthodontist, he had given me 3 different options to correct my teeth. He told me I could get traditional braces, Invisalign, or a generic form of Invisalign. I am 24 years old and had gotten traditional braces about 15 years ago. After not wearing my... more
I wore braces when I was young, before retainers existed. As my wisdom teeth tried to come through and had no room, my teeth moved. I had all 4 removed, and wore a permanent metal retainer attached on my bottom teeth for several years. Still, my teeth never looked really good again. With time and age (I'm 60)they worsened.

Did not mind wearing the trays, it was also great because if there was a super special occasion I could take them out for afew hours if I felt the desire. I had to wear them quite a bit longer than I was orig. told, I had to get 2 sets of refinement trays afterwards so I was first quoted about a year but ended up in treatment for almost two to get things as perfect as possible. lower teeth... more
