I’m so glad I made the investment to go with aligners rather than metal braces. I’ve heard stories of people having food stuck in their metal braces, and I didn’t want to go through that. It’s so easy – all I have to do is remove my aligners when I eat.
At first, I was skeptical about whether or not to use plastic aligners to straighten my teeth, but I am very glad I decided to make the investment. In just about nine months my teeth were straightened using the clear, comfortable, and easy-to-remove aligners. I’m a busy guy and using Invisalign fit right into my lifestyle.
I wanted my teeth straighter, but I didn’t want to be in pain. My aligners are so comfortable, compared to the metal braces I had when I was a kid, that sometimes I forget I have them on.
Everybody comments on my new smile, even when I’m wearing the aligners. Plus, I can remove them at any time, so they don’t affect my lifestyle.
Ione, Age 58, Administrative Assistant The reason I went with Invisalign is because I’m not a kid anymore. I didn’t want to look like a kid with braces on and have the hassle of keeping them clean and all that. There is a lot of work to keeping your teeth in good health when you have (traditional) braces.
Daniel, Age 38, Chauffeur I definitely smile a lot more. Even though I’m still in treatment, it has given me more confidence. It’s given me something to look forward to. I feel good about myself. I feel good that I have taken the steps to get these braces.
Breanna, Age 20, Waitress & Student What I like best about Invisalign is the fact that I can take them out and floss and brush my teeth and put them back in. So it’s not like I’m working around all this metal in my mouth, trying to get the toothbrush in there and floss in there.
Gina, Age 31, Analyst Relations I would not have gone the regular braces route. The reason for that is that I am in a customer-facing position. I’m in the hi-tech industry, with a lot of people around me that are young and hip and moving and shaking. To be in management, in a hi-tech company with a mouthful of braces in front of customers and prospects and other executive strategic alliance partners, it just wasn’t an option.
William, Age 31, Investment Broker At my age, to have the big metal train tracks in your mouth, I just figured, in person with people, I just wouldn’t feel as comfortable as I would with something that was truly invisible. I really believe in the product. I’m kind of a walking, talking billboard for it.
Vivian, Age 53, Nurse I am absolutely, positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.
