I am an RN, married mother of 2 grown children. As a child I had good, regular dental care, braces were not needed. As I got older, one of my upper front teeth gradually started to protrude, my bottom teeth became crowded and I had a crossbite. Oddly enough, it bothered me most when I saw photos of myself. I got braces at 40, then unfortunately did not wear my retainers. My teeth shifted back. For my 60th birthday, I took a trip to Europe with my husband, and when I saw the pictures, again I was so upset at my front teeth. So at 60, I started Invisilign about 1 month ago. I am on my second set. I can't believe I am doing this at my age, but the way my teeth look bothers me so much. I really hope it is worth the expense and the inconvenience.
