I am excited to be working with Invisalign and share information about their aligners, which are a great alternative to braces.
OMG How young were we in this pic? Jeeez. Actually this was back in 2005 when I had my braces on. John looks like a cherub hehehe. I am pissed that my teeth are back to pre-braces status. I wore those bad boys for over a year (as an adult, mind you) and boom. It’s like it never happened. I wore my retainer for two years, and then lost it but figured I’d be OK. Sadly…no. I need to get me some Invisalign to re-straighten my teeth, asap.
I mentioned in one of my momshell posts that I wanted to use groupon or something to get Invisalign to re-straighten my teeth. I found a few Invisalign dentists and compared the pricing with regular braces and it’s about the same. (Invisalign Doctor Locator)
My little brother got his braces off last year, and his smile looks great! He had traditional braces, but now Invisalign makes “Invisalign Teen” which may be better for self conscious teenagers since they’re practically invisible. Then again, braces are like a rite of passage for teenagers these days. Maybe Invisalign will be the rite of passage for Roey’s generation.
I wish we had Invisalign when I was a kid, or at least that it was more popular back in my early 20’s when I turned into a metal-mouth. It’s just so convenient that you can remove them to brush and floss and eat, and no worrying about stuff stuck in your metalwork! I hated flossing when I had my braces. That won’t be a problem once I get my Invisaligns though.

Plus I won’t have to go to the dentist as often for tightening, I’d just have to pick up my next set of trays every couple weeks. It’s just more convenient all around, not to mention way less noticable. My friend Britney has them (even though her teeth were practically perfect beforehand) and I couldn’t even notice them on her!
I am ready to get these right now!!!
Have you had braces growing up? Have you tried Invisalign? Would you?
