Invisalign aligners are used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, as well as close gaps and adjust overbites. The treatment involves wearing clear, plastic trays that are custom-designed for your mouth, making Invisalign a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces. For best results, it's recommended that you wear the aligners at least 20 hours per day throughout your entire treatment, switching to a new set of aligners roughly every two weeks until you've reached your desired results. LEARN MORE ›

Just Started My Invisalign Journey! - Invisalign with a Gap Between Front Teeth (Due to a Missing Incisor)) - New York

This is my first week of Invisalign. I've seen many reviews, but not too many for people who have a gap/multiple gaps. So I'll document my journey. I'm missing one tooth (from when I was 8 or 9) and because of that my teeth spaced out. Invisalign = 44 weeks (22 trays) Implant (afterwards) = 5... READ MORE

Invisalign for my 45th Birthday! - Melbourne, AU

Had my attachments done today and it's day one of tray one! Super excited to get through the next 27 trays. My tongue was sore by the end of today but my teeth aren't bad, just a pressure feeling rather than pain. Better than I expected. I will update my journey regularly as I found reading... READ MORE

Invisalign Month 1: Initial Treatment Where do I start?

48 Year Old That is Finally Getting Around to Get Some Much Needed Dental Work Performed - Milwaukee, WI

Ok, so first I need to start why it's taken me so long. First I grew up in a family of 7. That said 6 were lucky enough to have great teeth. Guess who the unlucky one was? Yes it would be me. I really got interested a few years back when my son needed braces and I looked over the lit as they say... READ MORE

Gaps and Missing Lateral Incisors.

April 5, 2015: I'm getting my first set of trays in less than 2 days. I'm both super excited and really nervous. We will see how it goes I guess!

26 Years Old, Looking for a Better Smile - Cork, Ireland

I'm on tray 5 of 52 of invisalign, and I've noticed a lot of differences between my treatment plan and what is typical, so I've decided to write a review/blog. For example I was told to change my aligners weekly, and need two years+ of treatment, when I subjectively feel that my teeth aren't... READ MORE

Invisalign | 42 Year Old - Mom of 3 ... Looking Forward to 'New-normal' - Reston, VA

Tray 1 – 24 hours in :: Wow, those are some really bad pics of my mouth!

I've never really *loved* my teeth – but didn't *hate* them either. The... READ MORE

First Tray - London, GB

I had braces when I was 12-15 and went through the wars to get what ended up being beautifully straight teeth. Over the years, my teeth started shifting until 2 of the 4 front teeth and moved considerably. While most people still considered my teeth to be nice and straight, I knew they weren't... READ MORE

A Walking Talking Text Book of Dental Issues - Matthews, NC

Im 41 years old. I've never had really straight, straight teeth, but they never bothered me- Still don't. Around 1997-98, I had a second molar extracted and a bridge put in. I was 22-23 then. My wisdom teeth started to act up around 2004. They had no room to erupt, so they started to push... READ MORE

[RealSelf Internal] Review 1 - My Review for Invisalign

I literally have only been wearing Invisalign for 15 days, and had my attachments put on today, so it's still early days, but I really think that the worst is behind me now. The first 4-5 days of using Invisalign were pretty nasty, I won't lie. It was so uncomfortable...it was the same feeling... READ MORE

My Invisalign story

I'm 26 and in the navy, my teeth have always been crowded since I was a kid. After having metal braces in middle school, I never wore my (invisalign) retainer like I should have. Naturally my teeth started crowding again especially in my early 20s when my wisdom teeth started growing in. After... READ MORE

The Night Before I Embark on my Invisalign Journey

It's been a long time coming! I'm in my 30s and for the past 10 years or so I've wanted adult braces. I did have train track braces in my teens, but my orthodontist didn't make it clear how IMPORTANT it was to wear the retainers, so my teeth were shifted back. Fortunately they aren't as... READ MORE

19 Years Old, Finally Started my Invisalign Journey - United Kingdom
