I am currently awaiting my trays. I am 28 years old and have never been happy with my teeth. I almost got metal braces when I was 23 but decided against it at the last minute. That orthodontist told me I wasnt a candidate for invisalign which is what I originally scheduled the consultation for. Since then I have had 3 consultations with Orthodontists who have told me I was a candidate for both the Invisalign and the Invisalign express. I decided to go with the full to do it right.
I have crowding issues. The final straw was when my daughter had a friend over and asked me if I was missing a tooth because from her angle my tooth protrudes and leaves a space in my mouth.
The Orthodontist I chose is very likable and honest although all of them told me about the attachments (which I already knew about because I spent a lot of time on this site reading reviews). The Ortho I chose even had attachments on the model he showed me. Anyways Im excited about beginning treatment and am expecting some discomfort. I think it will be mild compared to what they will do for my self esteem. Thanks to everyone who posts on here with their experiences, it has been helpful and I will be sure to update once my trays come in.
