    also curious about this
    if someone has op’s pic teeth and get them aligned with aligners
    will they stay aligned forever after taking off the aligners?
    or do they need maintenance or it will slowly go back to misaligned?

      you can get a fixed retainer, for the lower teeth insurance covers it here. (if they paid your braces as teen)
      its bad too clean and once in a while one loosens and i have to get it re glued but it keeps the teeth straight.

      I got braces as a kid and then had to wear a retainer but after a few years I just stopped wearing the retainer entirely. My teeth have remained straight since then.

    if you’re going to get anything, get classic braces. i had huge gaps between my teeth and was always self conscious. you’ll wear them for 2 years and after that wear a retainer for 2 years. i am so glad i got them, i get compliments on my smile and it encouraged me to floss everyday

    It’s expensive. I would definitely go for it if you have insurance. You should be flossing multiple times a day regardless if you teeth are crooked or not.

    Spent a couple grand (not covered by insurance) to get mine done via Invisalign – overall I’m glad I did.

    12-18 months of wearing the trays 22 hours a day, only taking them out for meals – unless you make it obvious, people barely notice you’re wearing them. After the treatment is done, I had wires top and bottom put in – but still meant to wear a retainer Invisalign tray to bed every night (really only do it every second night).

    If you ever feel self-conscious about your teeth, would recommend going for it even if it costs a couple grand. Used to be self-conscious of my teeth, now I haven’t thought about them in years.

    Only downside – food gets caught behind the wires too and bottom, so I try to keep a toothpick with me if I don’t want to get super irritated after eating out somewhere.

      Yes, as it will only get worse along the years and then take far longer and cost more money to fix it. Your case is not too bad, there is no advantage in waiting.

      Some people definitely do.

      Many do and it increases a lot due to increased consumption of US or at least US-influenced media.

      Cheap ones are dangerous, but Invisalign is just as effective as braces and anyone who thinks otherwise is a mongoloid

    Unless they’re seriously hecked up, people often find crooked teeth interesting and in some cases attractive. If it’s really bothering you, go for it. If not, I really wouldn’t worry.
