    I had invisilign - I would definitely recommend them!! It can be uncomfortable - but it's really not that bad. I had actual braces when I was younger, but insisted on having the ortho take them off early.. and well low and behold a few years later everything went downhill. Braces can be VERY painful but I didn't find invisilign that bad. :)

      I had traditional braces as an adult for 2 1/2 years. Sure it was uncomfortable but the end result is sooooo worth the pain and expense. No regrets, just a beautiful smile :)

        I'm finishing up my invisalign now. It cost me about 3K with insurance coverage. The only "pain" I've had is the first day of new trays and its not even that bad, its more like discomfort than anything else. My only advise is MAKE SURE YOU WEAR YOUR TRAYS!! I would get lazy sometimes and forget to put them back in and got off my schedule. I ended up getting to the end and had to get re-molded because I hadn't been wearing them like I was supposed to. This time they are in my mouth like 23 hrs a day lol! But are DEFINITELY working. I think its a great alternative to typical braces.

          Hi girls. I am a dental hygienist, and I see patients with invisilign all the time. They work great. Make sure you do your homework and compare prices all over. All invisilign trays come from the same company, and the dentists choose what they want patients to pay. I have found places that offer the full system starting at $2000, and other places that are charging $6000 for the same exact thing! These two offices are only 8 miles apart. So definitly shop around.

            I finally...there was a delay...got my first set of trays today. They are not all that uncomfortable. They just feel really wierd. But, I guess wierd could be uncomfortable.

                How long do you wear them for? Sounds really worthwhile.

                  It varies for each person, and it depends on how good you are about wearing them. In theory you wear each set of trays for 2 weeks. But, that is assuming you wear them often enough. You are only supposed to take them out to eat. It also depends on how your teeth respond to them.

                  Also, in my case, I have 8 trays for the upper teeth and 15 trays for the lower teeth. My upper teeth are not as out of line - most of the alignment is needed on the lower teeth. So, I'll be wearing them on the lower teeth longer than the upper.

                    I am looking to get some minor teeth straighting before the wedding. I have been meaning to do it for a while now but this is the time.

                    I have heard about invisiline but didn't know how long that takes, what about braces? Is there new tecnology with them? Thanks!

                      Good question! I'm eager to hear some responses also as i was considering the same thing. I'm sure there are some dental professionals on here somewhere!!!
