I am 90% through my treatment and couldn't be happier. I did a lot of research prior to picking my Invisalign othodontist doctor and here is what I learned.
First, it is very important to go to an orthodontist and NOT a dentist. Dentist's take a one-day course and are certified to use the product while orthodontists go through an extra 3 years of training in moving teeth after dental school. Also, not all orthodontists use a lot of Invisalign and it is important to pick an orthodontist with at least one star on the Invisalign website. The doctors with 2 STARS do at least 100 cases each year and have the most experience. These 2 star doctors are able to deal with abnormal reactions as they see these problems more often. For example, I was having problems with my lower aligner, it would always cut my tongue. My doctor put this special sand on my aligner and the aligner stopped cutting my tongue. These 2 star doctors are also able to correct the teeth and the bite (with the use of rubberbands). Dentists do not know how to correct the bite with rubberbands (as this is not taught to them).
Invisalign is a totally doctor driven product. Invisalign doesn't tell the doctor how to treat a case, the doctor tells them (unless the doctor does not know what they are doing). When the doctor does not know what they are doing, a default treatment is used (created by a technician in Central America). This is not a joke, this is the truth!
The reason I did research on this is that my friend had a bad experience with her Invisalign treatment. She did pay about $1000 less, but her teeth are still crooked. I am almost done and my teeth are basically perfect.
