I am a former brace-face. A two-time brace face at that. Once as a teenager and then again as an adult. Guess what? I lagged and didn't wear my retainers (again) and YES, I need straightening AGAIN.  This time as a 40 year old I am not going to do the "brace-face" look.  No metal mouth momma for me!  SO...I'm looking into Invisalign and hoping that those of you who have experience with the process can share your knowledge with me.  I am still looking into our dental plan to see if it is even covered.  I looked through their directories and have found a few providers in my area.  It's a start.  I wanted to document my journey starting here with the researching phase. I am excited to get the ball rolling.  I've contacted the company and attached the information that they have provided me in hopes to share with those of you who may be interested as well.

If you haven't learned by now, I'm a "sharer". I enjoy sharing. It's probably a big reason why I enjoy blogging so much.  I get to be a big mouth about what I know, what I learn, what I like, and what I don't.

Growing up my Mom ALWAYS said "sharing is caring" - it was annoying at times to hear, but I listened.  If I had only listened and WORN my retainers as a teen ...

What to expect
1. Your doctor will take an impression of your teeth and create a digital 3-D image to plan the exact tooth movements for your treatment.
2. You'll receive your first set of customized aligners about one month later. These are created for you to wear at each stage of your treatment, gradually moving your teeth a little at a time.
3. Most patients only need one checkup every four to six weeks.
4. A full treatment typically includes 20–30 aligners and often takes less than a year.

  1. Hi Cynthia,

    I was fortunate to become a member of the Invisalign Mom Advisory Board and, as part of that, they put me into Invisalign treatment. I am very happy with the process so far. I am about half way through treatment and I can notice a significant difference in my smile! I can't say that it is an entirely pain free method, but it is definitely a good fit for someone like myself who speaks at conferences and needs to have a good public appearance for media stuff. Please let me know if you have additional questions about the process or the treatment, I'm more than happy to share my experience with you!

    I received complimentary Invisalign treatment as part of the Mom Advisory Board. All opinions are my own:

  2. That's so cool! I'll definitely shoot over any questions that I have! Thank you!
