After speaking with my dentist in detail about either braces (again) or Invisalign, he indicated I was a perfect patient for Invisalign. My $4000, treatment would be approx. 16 months, and include 1 side of rubber bands. Thus far, it is a pain to take out the trays everytime I eat, and if I am out I need to brush my teeth before putting the trays back in or the food floats around the trays, yuck! Nothing quite like taking out your trays in in front of people, even descretely is embarassing. The rubber bands are designed very poorly, the top has a hook (great) however the bottom does not, you have to hope they dont pop off, which they do all the time. I avoid eating if I can since its so much trouble to get the band back on. Thus far a very frustrating experience. Braces would have fit me better, for several reasons.
My Dentis is new to selling this product, I think he is fine.
