I had the invisalign treatment. Very happy with it. Anyone snooping around the thread trying to make their mind up I'd say go for it.

Great way to cut out all the snacking as well!

Invisalign

Hi there, Has anyone had problems with the Invisalign cutting their gums? I started my Invisalign treatment yesterday and my mouth is in agony. The top of the brace is cutting my gums and the attachments are cutting my gums when I take out the brace to eat. Any tips?

2008coco ... There may be a 'rough' edge on the brace, you'll probably need to go back to orthodontist so they can check it. It will feel very tight for the first couple of days but as you remove and replace it, it will loosen. You'll notice this each time you move on to the next set. Stick with it, it just feels strange for the first day or two.

I was recently back to see orthodontist for final appointment, over a year since I finished with invisalign = thrilled with the results. I was told I only need to wear retainers a couple of nights per week now.

Good luck!

Invisalign Recomendations

Hi Guys, new to boards. Found this thread very useful as I'm strongly considering taking the plunge and getting the Invisalign.

Just started to look around but seems difficult to get prices on the net. Can any of you recommend a decent dentist at a reasonable price preferably in the Dublin area? Think you may need to pm me names. Any additional recommendations or advice is also appreciated.

Cheers

Hi there

talk with your dentist and ask them to recommend an orthodontist. Most orthodontists have websites with prices or just call up a few practices.

Invisalign is expensive to get made and the lab bill alone can be thousands so it is not the easiest or cheapest way to straight teeth.

good luck

You'll get better recommendations if you post your location.

I'm in North Wicklow but I'd have no bother travelling to wherever is deemed best.

I've been quoted €3,850 for invisalign full. With 5% off if paid in full up front and also advised I can claim 20% back in tax.

Would this be considered reasonable value?

Thanks

I also have the option of metal braces (behind the teeth) for approx €3000. Would this be a better idea?
