Millions of people worldwide have been
treated with Invisalign® and Spark™ clear aligners. Here are some of the StartSmiling stories: Our smile stories!
I like the invisalign better than others metal braces because at first it didn’t hurt compared to others braces. I am very happy with them because no one notices you have braces and sometimes I didn’t realise it the disadvantage is that they break quickly if you play with them.
Invisalign® transformed my crooked lower teeth into a beautiful whole! The nice thing about it was that I didn’t have to walk around with metal braces, I also thought it was great that I could just eat everything! Through consistent use, I quickly got the desired result.
Thanks to invisalign my crooked teeth have straightened again. I liked that the treatment did not take that long and the result has become very beautiful. It is also nice that you can eat as usual because you can easily put the braces on and off.
Because I have a metal allergy, I could never change my crooked teeth. I started to get more and more annoyed with the position of my teeth and I didn’t like to laugh as much. The invisalign braces were a godsend for me because there is no metal in them. At the beginning of the treatment I had some sore spots on the inside of my mouth and I couldn’t get my braces off easily, but the pain soon passed and I was able to click my braces off in one go. At the start of each new braces I felt some pain in my teeth, but that always disappeared within a day. Now my teeth are finally straight and I dare to smile again and show my teeth.
I am missing a tooth in my lower jaw and it showed and in the long run I would get a deeper and deeper bite with all the consequences. But due to an allergy to metal I could not wear (block) braces. For a long time I hated that I would never be able to wear braces, so my teeth would always be crooked. Then my dentist suggested I try Invisalign. Because the bracket is made of plastic, I could wear this bracket. I liked the fact that you can eat normally despite the braces, because you can click the braces out of your mouth. Hardly anyone noticed that I was wearing braces, even though I took the Invisalign every time before dinner. I am very happy with the result!
When all my baby teeth were exchanged, I was told that I had to wear braces. In principle, it does not make it possible for me to choose as much from a traditional brace. One that would come out and only carry America for months. It is a kind of plastic denture that goes around your teeth and is called an aligner. We have decided to choose this one. First, photos are taken beforehand by the dentist. A bit of a strange feeling, but funny, because sometimes your face takes on strange shapes. The photos are then sent to America. In the intervening period, the dentist put attachments on my teeth, which are issued every six months to keep the braces in place. Shortly afterwards, the completely custom-made transparent braces came to the Netherlands. For each week, so that my a little more were sent to the final result. I have to get to the tunings to come up with the even removal of the braces. In the months after that I had a few checks, but everything was fine and without any problems starting. While eating I was allowed to take the stirrups off the horses for a while, but otherwise always keep them in. Even while sleeping, but that actually worked. After six months I was done and I only wear night braces. The results are impressive! Thijs Smits
For me, the Invisalign® was a really great solution. I was already past the age where everyone had braces, so I wanted to straighten my teeth without it being very visible. So Invisalign® was able to do this for me and I am very happy with the result. The only thing that was perhaps not so pleasant was the pain, but you also suffer from that with a normal metal brace.
