I am looking to get Invisalign within the next couple of months and I'm currently searching for a good ortho in my area. I went to the Invisalign website and got the list of participating dentist but I've only gone on one consult thus far.

I love Invisalign. I am on my last trays now and the difference is amazing. My top teeth were pretty straight but I'm missing one of my canines so I was going to get an implant.
