Invisalign Experience -East Brunswick, NJ

I had braces in Jr High School. After the braces...

I had braces in Jr High School. After the braces were removed I failed to wear the retainer. They were not as comfortable to wear as the new type. Over the years my teeth moved and at 54 yrs of age I decided to have them realigned. I had a total of 17 sets (top&bott) of invisalign trays. You wear each set for 2 weeks. In less then one yr, my teeth are now perfect again. After the process is completed you will be provided one retainer to wear. You will then find out the retainer only lasts 2 yrs and they will cost 200.00 for one set or about 450.00 for a set of four. They should really be forth coming with this additional expense before you have the procedure done, but in my case I would have done it anyway. Just be forewarned about this maintenance cost. It was a very easy and smooth process and I would do it again. I would be happy to answer any questions I can about the treatment process. Thanks :)


Good for you for getting your teeth re-straightened!

That is a bummer about the retainer costs. I'm assuming you are getting the clear essix style retainers. You might want to ask your orthodontist if you could get traditional acrylic & wire, wrap style retainers. They have a pretty long life if treated well, and since you will probably only be wearing them at night it might not matter to you about having the wire there.

Yes i was planning on the clear ones. I will look into the type you mention. The original retainers i had in 1973 were two big chunks of rubber LOL Thx!
No actually it was one chunk of rubber with impressions on both sides, like a fighters mouthpiece.
