I started with Invisalign Braces almost 3 years ago. Sometime around October of 2012 I noticed the packaging on the new sets stated they were now manufactured in Mexico. Around this time I started feeling odd pressure in my ear. This came and went off and on for months. Then my glands in my neck started to swell on the same side which would go around to the back side of my neck on occasion. I have spent over $1,000 on blood tests, CT Scan, etc. and the ENT physician cannot figure out what is wrong. I started noticing a pattern when I removed them for a 24 hour period, the swelling seemed to start to go down. So I decided to not wear them for 2 weeks...swelling almost went completely away. I told the dentist to make my retainer, I am through with Invisalign. He is making the retainer in his office, not ordering it from Invisalign. According to the FDA, Invisalign will not tell them the type of chemicals they are using. My dentist has asked and he cannot get this info from them either.
My Dentist is wonderful.
