ive just got invisalign braces to fix an open bite thet i have
have . Im on my 5th retainer so quite a few to go
has anyone on here had these if so how did you find it
im on my quest for the perfect smile.
I didn't quite understand this question but my answer:
I've never had invisalign braces but I do have the qiant in your face silver ones, Most uncomfortable things ever and hurts a lot sometimes, but the massive improvement in my teeth in the last 9 months is brilliant. They are near perfect hopefully only another 3/4 months to go.
i had my ortho appointment today. meant to be getting a mixture of fixed invasligne braces. ahh its so expensive 4885!!! dont no if im going to go ahead with it bit weary about getting adult teeth taken out. did u need any taken out?
Extracting adult teeth is quite normal if the mouth is too crowded to cope with the natural amount of teeth. Typically its this overcrowding thats the cause for the malocclusion (squinty teeth). As the crowded teeth impact against each other, they typically get worse over time.
Its usually the pre-molars that are removed, so hardly noticable and is a straightforward and painless procedure. The gaps that are left are filled in suprisingly quickly by the orthodontic treatment, they only extract teeth that really don't fit in your mouth! Before long the perfect smile will be crafted. The time taken for the treatment can depend on the size of your roots, shorter roots means for a quicker overall treatment. Once corrected, you usually have to wear a retainer at night time to ensure the teeth don't go back, but definately worth it!
The costs always are a bit steep, unless you can wangle it for free (difficult when your over-18 and not in full time education). Alternatively, if you get pregnant I beleive you can get free treatment - however the costs of children will somewhat outweight the ortho fees .
Hey.. I had braces for almost 2 years they cost me £3000! my dentist told me they were straight enough and i should have it taken of i was not convinced but i did and i wore retainers for 3 months but my teeth have still tryed moving back to the way they were! and stick out more then what they did before i had the brace put on! I was fumming im still not happy with them and thinking about getting another brace, but im not sure i want to go thro all that pain again
I got my braces taken out 2 days ago, they were perfect but over night moved and looked squint again, i got the retainer put on today it was really sore! they've gone straight again but just shows how little time it takes for them to move back,
The retainers uncomfy and i speak funny with it in but not going through a year of braces to risk losing my straight teeth now
