Invisalign Clear Braces are very good alternative for Traditional Braces, because it is made from invisible plastic material and it won't give pain or negative impressions. Also it solves all kind of teeth issues such as Teeth Crowding, Teeth Spacing and Teeth Bite Problems.

I have regular braces, but you can ask for them to be clear. No one really knows I have braces unless they get up close and see the wire. With invisalign you have to wear them longer and it cost more

There is huge difference bewtween invisalign and refular braces, invisalign is much better, its invisible etc .. but Cost of invisalign is much higher, so you can see invisalign vs braces cost here: http://bracesmania.com/braces/invisalign-vs-braces/ - http://bracesmania.com/braces/invisalign-vs-braces/

Curious to know if you went through a chain office or a private practice...


I tell my patients with gaps that they insist on a permanent retainer..if you have a gap, you're body thinks it's normal and will ALWAYS revert back..

 

Invisilign is cool if you can afford it and you do exactly what you're told..I've only see 2 cases where it didnt work out for people and that was because they had very dense bone and the acrylic trays just couldnt move the teeth like metal could . If you cant afford Invisilign but want to decrease the time being a brace face look into
SMART BRACES..metal but the wire is bent by a robot instead of a human..without getting all technical..it makes the teeth move faster .





 

You wont get gum disease and infections with braces if you take care of them. 99% of the patients I see do not clean them thoroughly enough..you have to step your cleanigs up to 4 times a year instead of 2 and u need to invest in a Waterpik, superfloss, an electric toothbrush like a Sonicare or a Oral B, and MI Paste..can't stress this enough!!

EXACTLY!!!  I have traditional metal braces and I love they way my teeth look now!!  I was always terrified of going to the dentist and was a long time thumb-sucker which resulted in an open bite.  Now, 20 months later, my teeth are straight as ever!  My ortho did let me know that if he couldn't get my gap completely closed, then jaw surgery would be an option.  I am now obsessed with straight teeth!  I can do things I don't remember ever being able to do like...bite into chicken wings and french fries!

By the time I came up with the mulah, my teeth had already shifted too much and they told me I would have to get braces again! Negative. I am, however, looking to get invisalign in the next few years because I despise crooked teeth and my teeth have shifted (They arent terrible, but I like the uniform look of straight teeth), however I have been told numerous times (by a few dentists) that I need to remove my wisdom teeth as all four have grown in, yet I have no problems with them. I thing I should have invested in invisalign the 2nd go round, I don't care if I have to wear them for 5 years or forever as long as my teeth are straight til I die! lol 
 
Girl..PULL them wisdom teeth!! they might be a reason your teeth shifted, they dont function to chew food, and normally u cant keep them clean...
