WAY off topic....Invisalign (plastic braces)

5 posts in this topic

Couldn't think of a better place that FM to ask this grin

It looks like a few of my upper teeth are slowly moving in ways they shouldn't be and I might need to do something to stop and reverse it. I figure the sooner the better, but I don't know if I could handle braces.

Has anyone ever used or know of anyone who's used Invisalign?? I haven't heard about it for a while, but it sure seems like it would a lot more convenient that metal braces. Thanks for any info!

From what I know you may get acceptable results but to get things right the first time (for sure) real braces are the way to go.

Being you are in I'Falls you will want to check around and go with someone who is trained and experienced in working with them. You may have to travel some distance to achieve that. I would stay away from the dentist who went to weekend courses to learn about it and does a couple cases a year. Talk to a reputable orthodontist (college trained), not an orthodentist (dental profession term for a practicing general dentist who learned orthodontia doing weekend classes).

thedeadsea,

Thanks for the reply. I actually made a call to Bemidji to set up an appointment with a real orthodontist. I'm hoping to just get looked at to see if it's an option. I don't think it'll take very much or very long to set things right, that's why I'm considering the Invisalign over conventional braces.

I would think if your teeth haven't moved much that invisalign would work okay. Not sure if you can wear the Invisalign as a retainer after they are straight, but it sounds like you might need something long term to keep them in place.

I've had my braces off for a couple years now and still wear a retainer every other night. It's crazy how fast those teeth can shift!

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
