I am a member of the Invisalign MAB. As a member, my daughter is receiving Invisalign treatment.
So, here we are, almost at the end of my daughter's Invisalign treatment. She's worn 15 sets of trays for appriximately 16 months.
Here is where we started:
And here is where we ended up:
Are we pleased? I think her teeth look much better than before, and she's delighted with the improvements to her smile. As a bonus, I can now get her to smile in pictures, which was always somewhat of a challenge for us before.
I really do think that Invisalign has a great product. My oldest son wore traditional braces, and I well remember the breaking wires and the brackets that were forever popping off. There were no foods that she couldn't eat, and we spent much less time in the orthodontists office.
The downside is that she didn't wear them quite as much as she could have - her compliance wasn't as stellar as i would have wanted - so her teeth aren't as perfectly matched as my son's teeth are - but as I told her, that part of the equation is completely up to you.
Now we move into the retainer stage. One thing I didn't realize, although it's totally my fault, is that she'd still need a retainer, just like traditional braces - and I didn't factor that into my budget.
It's always something, isn't it?
