Another Newbie to Invisalign

today my first trays were "installed". I knew about the attachments and although i agree they are unattractive, it is logical that they are there. so far no major problems, but its only been 12 hours. i plan to post some in process photos. i have severe bottom crowding , some top crowding and a very narrow bite. i found the ortho online and he is an elite provider and says he does tons of invisalign. he also added "bumps" to the trays to help correct my bite and widen my jaw (but i dont understand how). i left the office with 6 trays (of 30) and was told i dont need to see the dr. again for 12 weeks. ill keep you posted.

it has already gotten easier in just the first 10 days. my problem was getting them out - especially the bottom tray. putting them back in after a thorough cleaning was actually easy. ive also lost a couple of lbs because its not worth the effort for a snack. good luck!!!

I am going to be starting invisalign in Jan. The only thing I worry about is that I won't want to put them back in after I take them out. Do you have an issue with this as well? Thanks

I was told the bumps "could" be added to hold the invisalign in place and that they are not very noticeable. Any comment on that? I would have loved to gone with the option with braces on lower and invisalign on the upper but it was an extra grand because the # of invisalign trays. Possibly will have to get braces on the bottom after for 4-6 mths. The cost is not too bad. I start in Jan. due to our insurance change. Excited about, I hate my bottom teeth.

he was very informative at the initial sales session. i didnt see him today at installation, so i am rating him in the middle and will keep you posted. what i did like is that he didnt insist i remove a bottom tooth which other orthos had suggested. also i am older (57) so i really recommend someone starting younger.
