I finally made the decision to go with my treatment, I got invisalign in mid May 2012. It is very costly, my treatment cost 7500 excluding acceledent that I got recently (paid that upfront). I have high hope that my smile will be next to perfect.
It doesn’t bother me that I have to keep my invisalign on for 22 hours a day; I probably have them on for 23 hours because I eat very quickly. My friend and my mom call them granny teeth and my sister calls them dentures ewww lol. They make me laugh but I don’t mind, they both have traditional braces and they are ugly. I do get some weird looks sometimes, like ‘what is that on your teeth’ and I be like none of your business *rolls eyes*.
My goal from this treatment is to have straighter, broader and brighter smile and I made that very clear during my consultation. So I will be quite furious if I don’t get that outcome because I PAID HEAPS OF MONEY.
As soon as I heard of acceledent I went and did my research and was convinced that it will work and speed up my treatment by 50%. That means I would be changing my aligners every week. But what really made me desperately get it was that I got attachments on my 4th aligners… all across my top teeth. 10 on the top and 6 on the bottom, my first 3 aligners had no attachments. Well not so invisible I guess but still, I will take invisalign over traditional braces anyday.
I started using the acceledent on the 9th of July in the middle of my 4th aligners, for 20 minutes every night. From now on (from the 5th aligners) I will change them every Thursdays. Its day 4 and I can already feel that it’s loosened up and not so tight which is a good thing. So on Thursday the 19th I will change to my 6th. It’ll be the first time I’m changing them after using an aligner for one week. I will write review on how that goes.
Btw I have 32 aligner to go through before my perfect smile. My invisalign treatment is supposed to go for 18 months but with Acceledent I will be done with them by January 2013, than have refinements if necessary. Then its retainers and a hidden wire behind your front teeth that will be there eternally.
The only thing that bothered me was the price. But that’s my fault; I should have looked around but i was very impatient. That is a self taught lesson, never going to happen again.
Suprisingly the the 6th tray isnt all that very...
