So today is my last day to wear these trays. I have to admit i feel so naked with out them!! I had 18 trays top and bottom. My top row had all kinds of problems. My front teeth had a big gap from one of the front teeth being off-set side ways, the eye teeth were pushed back crowding with the teeth next to it. The bottom ones were gapped and turned and had a pretty good overbite. When i was a kid, the dentist wanted me to wear metel braces for 9-12 yrs!! of course i couldnt afford that so the problem continued until now. I'm 29 now, and finally have a smile to be proud of!! The tray's only seemed to hurt the first day or two, and the last day or two. I was not aware of the attachments(8 total) until i got them!! I was a little taken aback, they seemed like teeth "warts" to me. but with this whole process, i got use to them too. I can only recall being in real PAIN on maybe 4 of the 18 trays, the first felt as if my skull was being rearranged!

2800 dollars is what i paid, because i was patient and waited for the Dr.'s office to run a "no record fee" promotion/open house. That saved me 750. My gum health has improved along with the whiteness! I smoked with my tray's and it kept to nicotine off my teeth. I have since then quit smoking and my teeth are getting whiter and whiter. I was also suprised the 2800 included all monthly visits.

I LOVE MY TEETH NOW! i never thought it was possiable!!

Scott you won't be sorry!! You'll feel some pain the first 48 hrs. but its not unbearable. just stay away from chips. the are torture on moving (sore) teeth. You will be so glad you did it and see a diffrence so quickly the small aches will not matter. Your jaws and cheecks might hurt from all the smileing and showin' off your teeth. :}

This is great, i am currently considering this treatment and am meeting with an Ortho on tuesday. I am a bit nervous about the pain but i cant imagine it being worse than getting a tattoo and i have 3....lol Any words of encouragement? Anything i should expect? I love reading about all the happy people, it makes me think that i am making the right choice!

I was wondering about the trays being used for whitening purposes, but i was affraid the stuff might melt my tray's to my teeth. :} What exact kind of whitening system are you using? Do you sleep in the whitening gel?

Congratulations! I'm a little over halfway done with my treatment. The results are tremendous so far. I too quit smoking a couple months into getting my trays. Now I use them also as whitening trays when I whiten my teeth. :D

Congrats on your success! I am undergoing treatment for invisalign as well. I am a current dental hygiene student and absolutaly love the fact you quit smoking, it will have a tremendous affect not only your overall health but your oral health as well.

Thank you!! I have a retainer i wear at night. it looks alot like my invisalign just comes up higher on the roof of my mouth, and makes me talk a little wierd, but unless i talk in my sleep it shouldn't be an issue. :}

How long do you have to wear the retainer?
