Even though I had braces for 2 years as a teenager, I stopped wearing my retainers years ago. Not only have my teeth moved so much, but my overbite is back, I am grinding my bottom teeth down to nothing, and I have headaches just because of my teeth problems.
I went to Defay Orthodontics in Kaysville, UT (http://www.kaysvilleutorthodontist.com/) for a FREE consultation to see what options I had available.
I had no idea that Invisalign was such an affordable option (it was the same price as braces!) and that Dr. Defay actually uses Invisalign on 90% of his adult patients.
If you are interested in Invisalign, this video is from my consultation so that you know what to expect. For more information about my experience, you can read about it on our blog: https://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2018/02/6-things-to-know-about-invisalign-with-defay-orthodontics/

i feel like you were crushing on the doctor 😂😂
How did your experience turn out?
I'm on day 3 with my invisalign aligners.
My orthodontist is great.
The first 2 days I was miserable but it's day 3 and they actually feel better in my mouth.
My issue is taking them out with the buttons on. Was that an issue for you? And did you ever lose any of your buttons?
God bless Invisaligns!
Orthodontists love invisilign because computer software does all the job. All he does is collect money
Which process is quicker ?
She kinda goofy
The amount of gaps in the after results tho would be whats putting me of the most. Need to straighten my bottom teeth before getting veneers. But i do not want to
Can you eat popcorn if you have braces cuz I'm scared of you eat popcorn if you have braces if you get stuck in your people are you going to have to go to the dentist on know but I tell you I told you in a comment
I’m 30 I waited to remove my wisdom teeth before having braces Im so glad I did the metallic brace check my transformation! Also I’m getting a permanent retainer I’m hoping it stays straight forever
Perfect the way you are
How many fillings do you have?
Main difference is that brackets are constant manual work of orthodontist, where invisalign progression is upfront pre-calculated until end of treatment. Which means, you must visit orthodontist every month to correct bracket position, where if you carry invisalign 22 hours you can visit once a year. However, invisalign is not suitable for vertical tooth movement.
Having done traditional braces in the past, what caused you to choose invisalign this time around. I just had an ortho consult and they told me that it was my choice. Price and treatment time will be the same for either option. I'm just not sure with direction to go.
How much we should pay for orthodontic???
Hello! are your fillings white or you dont hve any?
Have you ever had cavities?
I am a 60+ woman who has done the Invisalign option twice. First round brought some success, but second round brought total satisfaction! Two dentists, and a move to a different state. Good luck..
I had Invisalign last year and it was the best experience. And now, unlike when I was a teenager, I wear my retainers EVERY night! 😂
Which sister are you? 😁 Thanks!
Thanks for doing this video 👍
Hi Camille! I just started my journey with Invisalign!! I've wanted braces for years but am just now able to get them. However being over 35, I did not (do not) want to wear traditional braces. It's been a month since I've ordered them and should receive my trays in about 2-3 more weeks. 😄
