I've always had a crookered smile and wanted to get it fixed for ages. I first looked into Invisalign ages ago but needed quite a few root canals before process could start. But I have got here and I am on my first tray of 44! Will be a long road ahead and have to get a tooth extracted but can't wait to see the results!

Tray 3 and not happy

Ok so everything had been going fine for my first four weeks. No problems at all. Went into the ortho to get my new trays and some attachments. The dental hygienist was extremely rough and cut my gums to spreads during this procedure, glue was literally stuck to everything. I have an attachment on every single tooth (some I have two). After an hour she gives me my new set of trays - top ones fit fine. When she goes to put on the bottom one and realizes they have been made incorrectly. I am supposed to be missing a tooth. She goes to tell the ortho, he is out of the office. They decide to make up an ill fitting retainer for me that literally cuts into my gums and makes them very sore. I get a call later saying all my Invisalign have been made with my tooth extracted therefore I have no option but to get it pulled out ASAP. So after week and a half I am able to get into dentist to get my tooth pulled. I was instructed to put retainer back on after this and then put in my Invisalign tomorrow. Everytime I went to put my retainer in my missing tooth bled profusely all day so had no choice but to put in retainer that night. I woke up and put my Invisalign in as instructed (after brushing, flossing etc) and it's caning my teeth a lot extremely tight and sore. As well as these dramas it is clear my mouth is very stressed out I haven't had a coldsore for about ten years but as soon as I got my Invisalign I have had three consecutively! Not fun

5 months in and on tray 10

Well I must say reading my original posts brings back bad memories! Thank god everything subsided and the last few months have been an absolute breeze, no coldsores, no saw gums, my teeth never hurt everything is going very smoothly and have just started enjoying seeing some slight results mainly in my upper teeth.

Tray 16 of 44

Feeling good have definitely started to see improvements!

More than half way there

Ok so I'm on tray 24 of 44 now and all going very smoothly no hiccups.i actually just found out my top teeth only go to tray 29 and bottom go to 44. So only 12 weeks and my top teeth will be done. Reckon I will be needing a lot of refinement !! Anyway feeling positive about results

Chipped front tooth repaired

Tray 29

Ok so I've got completely slack with my Invisalign I mainly just wear it to bed. I know right. But my teeth are moving as required (maybe cause I just had a baby and have had all that extra relaxin floating around) anyway so happy with the results this far !!

Tray 41 (attachments off for now)

Ok so I was getting excited that my treatment was nearly up and my attachments were finally coming off after nearly 2 years only to be told I'm having refinements and my attachments will all be put back on :( totes gutted but I understand my orthodontist is a perfectionist and he wants to do the best he can with my bite and appearance etc. Anway happy with the results so far!

Very professional and thorough. Identified issues with my teeth before starting treatment that needed to be resolved. Nice clinic and very understanding. I pay $2500 upfront and $240 per months for 25 months.
