Invisalign 13 Years After Braces?
I had braces about 13 years ago when I was 15. My bottom teeth are straight but my top teeth are crowded now. My four front top teeth are out of alignment. There is also a gap between my top front teeth and bottom front teeth.
My dentist told me he would put brackets on my front teeth and use elastics to pull down my front teeth some first. He would also file down my bottom canines a little. And after that he would order Invisalign trays to straighten them. Is this a good treatment plan? Total cost of $4,950.
