I've been wearing invisalign for about 6 month. I just finished my 12th set and I have a total of 30. I have a lot of lower crowding. So far I'm happy with the process. It took me a couple of weeks to get use to them but now they are not to bad. They have little to no effect on my speech and I don't have the bad breath problems that I have read about with others. Of course, I brush and floss after each meal but I brush the aligners with listerine about every other day. I found that to work better that toothpaste. The worst part for me was the attachments felt rough when the aligners were out and they cause me to bite my lip while I was eating. After a couple of weeks that became less of an issue. I have been wondering if my teeth will be straight by the time I finish with the 30th set. My teeth are moving but so slow it's made me wonder whether I will have the results that I want when I'm finished. I mentioned this to my dentist he assured me they are right on track but if I'm not happy with the results when I finished that they will take another impression of teeth and have some more aligners made to achieve the desired results(at no additional costs). At this point I can say I'm happy with invisalign and I would still get them if I had to do it over again.
