I have been wearing them for 1 year and now I need 3 more months. BUT even though my teeth are straightening out, my bite is now off. My back molars do not fit together properly. Eating a steak is out of the question because I can't chew it well enough. And the "pegs" they adhered to my teeth for the Invisalign to attach to are VERY sharp! My tongue is always raw from brushing up against them. I've asked for pegs that are not so sharp with my next trays. I'm hoping my dentist knows what he's doing and in the end all of this will be resolved; my teeth straight and my bite is good.
My dentist and his office couldn't be nicer. I just hope they are considering the rest of my mouth and how it is effected from this and not just my teeth.
