Invisalign Teeth Braces Tips Photos

Back as a teenager I had very crooked teeth and had metal braces to fix them. It hurt a lot and was troublesome, but in the end my teeth worked properly which is of course important for good health :) I had only one wisdom tooth in my head - the upper right. My doctors kept saying to pull it out, but I refused because I hate dental procedures. The tooth was under the gumline. Why mess with it if it was nice and quiet?

So now the tooth was gone - but my other teeth were all misaligned (again). If I'd listened to the doctors, and pulled that wisdom tooth years ago, I would have been fine. Now, however, I had to go through braces (again) to get my teeth back into healthy shape.

Invisaligns are clear plastic tray braces that move your teeth progressively, by using a new tray every 2-4 weeks and wearing that tray for 24 hours a day while it's that tray's time period. The boyfriend of a good friend of mine had used Invisaligns and loved them. My nephew was using Invisaligns and loved them. I opted for trying the Invisaligns, figuring they would not rip my lips apart like the metal ones had done.

Here is how it went!
