Re: Invisalign - Braces

I finished my treatment and am now wearing a retainer.

I didn't NEED braces, especially since I had them when I was growing up. But my teeth shifted a bit over time and I wanted a perfect smile for my wedding. Even DH didnt think I needed them, but I wanted them.

Invisalign in expensive, but fortunately for me, it was partially covered by insurance. A lot of insurance plans wont cover Adult Orthodontics.

What I liked most about them was that I could take them out whenever I wanted. If I was going to a party, wedding, dinner w/ friends, I wouldn't wear them for a couple of hours, and no one even knew I was in treatment.

It's become quite popular and I know a few people who have gotten them and are happy with the results.

FM me if you'd like my Drs contact info.

Re: Invisalign - Braces

it really depends on the severity and nature of your problem.

My FH went to an orthodontist and he ahd to choose between invisalign and clear braces. He ended up going with the braces because

1) it was cheaper

2) his problem was pretty severe

3) With braces you can make tiny changes throughout and adjust if something goes wrong. With invisalign, they make all of the progressive sets of mouthpieces at the beginning, so if something goes wrong in the middle, or an adjustment needs to be made you are kind of screwed.

Good luck
