Hello there,
My DD had braces when she was 12 years old, but removed it before completing the treatment as she was not comfortable with it. Now she is in her 20s and we noticed her teeth are protruding and there is gap between teeth. My hubby says getting invisible invisalign may help her and we have booked an appointment with a dentist in Margolian Dentistry in Whitby. She is asked to consult the dentist on Monday as they need bite impression of her teeth. Before consulting, I would like to know more about invisalign braces. Do you think it will fix the problem? Is it really comfortable? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

As a dental risk manager, I have a few thoughts...

First, for ANY orthotics I strongly recommend an orthodontist only. A lot of general dentists do Invisalign, but they are not orthodontists and this is a true specialty issue.

Second, find an orthodontist who does Invisalign (many don't) as they understand it better.

Third, make sure you let the orthodontist know about the previous brace treatment as when braces of any kind are used a second time the chance for root resorption becomes stronger and more rapid and teeth can be lost or compromised.

Yes invisalign better for rather than fixing metal braces. Metal braces may damage your teeth in some places that is not done in invisalign because of that material is very soft and comfortable for teeth.

I'm not quite sure I completely understand this statement since it appears English is not your first language, but there is so much false information here it is scary. The OP should have an examination by an orthodontist to determine which type of braces would be best suited for their case, rather than asking strangers on the internet.

I have braces on my bottom teeth and got clear aligners (a system called Simpli5..similar to Invisalign but only 5 trays) on top.. As an adult I didn't want braces on top. If I were to do it again - I would get braces on top too. The aligner is a PITA.. in , out, in ,out every time I want to eat, brush. Don't forget it, don't lose it.. It feels gross waking up with it.
