Hi All,
I have had crooked teeth my whole life & i'm nearly 40 .. I have done the Clin Check and i've been told it will take about 20 trays for the bottom and 16 for the top. I just would like to know if people think I should continue. It is alot of money for something which I'm not sure really works for everyone.. Have told my dentist that i'll let him know this week.. What to do...?

I've decided after lots of research and thought to...

I've decided after lots of research and thought to go for the invisaligh braces. I am now waiting with a sense of dread and trepidation. I've no doubt it's gonna be hard, and i'm sure i'm gonna question my decision alot over the next year. Lets hope i made the right decision. My braces should be fitted next week. I'm gonna post alot through my time as I feel it will help for good or bad other people who like me research before deciding and also I might need a shoudler to cry on:) Look forward to the feedback.

So.. Here we Goooo..!! 16 Trays for the Top 19 Trays for the Bottom..

Got fiitted at last for my Invisalign. After much thought, research, saving and soul searching I got my first tray. Easy getting fitted for my 9 Buttons, attachments or as my kids have called them my FANGS..!!. Happy out walkin out the door and told to come back for my 3rd tray in 4 weeks..

I found getting them out a little difficult to get out the first time but since then it's got easier. I seem to be making enough Saliva that would float a small boat but i'm sure that's only to be expected. I have found my teeth quite sensitive after taking out the Trays but maybe I need to switch my toothpaste to a sensitive one. So far so good , will update as I go a long.. Any newbies have any questions please ask as I'll be very honest.. Talk soon..

So.. I'm onto set No.2 .. Didn't mind too much the first Trays, A little discomfort but overall found the process very easy. It's gonna take a bit of getting used to eating out as, you have to floss and wash your teeth straight away after, I'm getting some funny looks in the mens room, as most of the guys don't even wash their hands (gross I know) after never mind floss and wash there teeth. Really the only thing that bugged me was I got a very sore throat and then I got a nasty Cold, I haven't been Sick for ages and yes it could be a coincidence but 3 days in to Tray 2 and my Sore throat has come back with a vengeance.. Anyone else get Sore Throats with invisalign? Hoping that it's not gonna happen everytime I start New Trays. Anyway that's it for now.. Laters..

So From 3 to now on Tray 5 of 16U & 19L..
It's all kinda fallen into a routine.. In my Tray take out my Tray.. Eat, Floss wash my teeth, wash my Tray put it back in my mouth and repeat that about 7 times a day.. Pretty mundane, boring slightly annoying but now routine.
Can't really see any difference, but can feel when I floss my teeth have definitely got more spacing. Not sure if it is all gonna work out but I gotta have faith I supose. I'm back in to my dentist next week for a free clean and my next 3 Trays..
No one has mentioned that they notice them at all, but think I am still a little self conscious of them. Anyway, will post again in a few weeks.. Keep smiling :)

HI, So Just finishing 7/16U & 7/19L .. I've changed my status to worth it, cos finally i've statred seeing alot of change with my Front teeth. I know that i've along way to go but still tto he difference is kinda amazing. I feel like i'm grinding alot with them in, especially the first 4/5 days of a New Tray. I still have had no one mentioning that I have braces, I reckon I've probably drawn peoples attention more.. Looking forward to putting in Tray number 8 tomorrow nite.. All kinda routine at this stage.. Talk soon
