One consolation about Invisalign braces…

Something occurred to me today- My husband has been very worried that my lips will look smaller after Invisalign as my teeth move back and I have just been more generally concerned that I might not like my new look.

However in a moment of enlightenment I realised that Invisalign have one other great advantage over traditional braces-if I don’t like my teeth at the end of my treatment,  I can simply wear all 34 aligners in reverse order and put them back exactly how they started! 😉

  1. I had Invisalign done years ago. I have a huge gap between my front two teeth and gaps from k9 to k9 on my bottom teeth. I hate this! Never get Invisalign. I’m so mad I didn’t keep all my trays. I have moved several X’s in 15 yes and lost them!

    >Haha, No I haven’t had any IPR and I’m not scheduled for any in my first run- but you are right that would make the whole wearing them backwards thing impossible. Unless you thought the gaps added character to your face!

    >Wow, you really do keep up with the updates!

    I am on my 5th set- just one set behind you! Did you not have your teeth shaven? If I don’t like my book after my treatment, i don’t think I’d want to wear the old trays, coz I’ll have gaps between my teeth! 😀
