I have a 6 month treatment and im on month 4. Ive had no problems until looking back about 8 weeks. I have developed SEVERE sinusitus symptoms, jaw, ear, head and sinus pain, with nausea. Its been on off for 8 weeks. I saw provider yesterday who said invisalign would not cause this, but im convinced it is. I dont have an infection & Antibiotics from Doctor made no difference. Ive never had... more
I was wondering if anyone could help. I am now on tray set number 6 and have just had my metal button added on one side so that I can use an elastic to correct an overbite (something I did not know about before undertaking treatment but oh well).
However, I have now had it for 2 days and I this morning could not get the elastic off the button. I eventually tugged it out but now cannot get it... more
So I am in my first week of trays. I need a whopping 36 trays, for top and bottom and have loads of attachments.
The good news is that the tray hasn't hurt so far! Also, my boyfriend (who I live with) hasn't noticed that I'm wearing braces. I deliberately kept it a secret as I wanted to test how invisible Invisalign really is. It has been 5 days now and he seemingly doesn't have a clue!
I am not into the blogging experience but when I was doing research I found this forum to be very helpful and it provided comfort that many women my age are doing this treatment. Thus I decided as a way for me to keep track of this journey and to help others I would document my invisalign journey.
How I found about Invisalign and the deciding point:
I am 29 yrs old and have ALWAYS had... more
Personally I found Invisalign really inconvenient - whenever you want a drink you have to take them out so they are always coming in and out for 12 months! I found them very uncomfortable as well and tight on my teeth. Also virtually everyone I met registered them immediately so they are not "Invisible" at all.
Something else which was potentially more sinister is that after two months of... more
So I've been reading this blog for a while, and realised most of the reviews are US based, so I decided to offer a British experience. I am 25, work for the Government (where I talk to a lot of people, and so wasnt in a situation where metal braces were feasible. Plus, I'm exceptionally vain). I never had braces as a kid, although I had other forms of dental work to widen my mouth or something... more
With moderate to severe overcrowding & overjet, I wanted to correct my teeth before they got any worse, and I got any older. £3,500+ represents a significant investment, so I did a considerable amount of research both online and visiting Invisalign providers for a consultation. Whilst some offered cheaper, shorter, treatments (which would only move the front teeth), more
I was self consious of my crooked front teeth that had been getting worse since a teenager. When I first started my invisalign treatment I was a little aprehensive as I had always dreamed of having straight teeth and was worried I may be dissapointed. Looking at them now they are better then what I could have imagined. I am much more confident and am now seen happily smiling away in... more
