I am 21 and due to start invisalign treatment, however my wisdom teeth have not yet come through and I am concerned that once they do they may completely misalign my teeth again, would you suggest I wait for treatment?,

If I start Invisalign with one dentist will I be able to transfer my treatment to another dentist?

December 7th, 2010
Q.
If I start my retainers with one dentist and then have to move to another city for work is it possible to have all my intonation and retainers transfered to another practice? Can they just give me my info and retainers or would invisalign send them on? How much would you expect to pay on top of the original price?,

Tooth discomfort following Invisalign has been found to be down to root resorption. Will I lose my tooth?

December 6th, 2010
Q.
I have completed two years of invisalign treatment and have recently began to feel discomfort in my front upper tooth. Closer inspection and an x ray has revealed that I have root loss leaving a jagged edge,the nerve is alive. However my invisalign orthodontist can not tell me anything about root resorption with any clarity. What would you advise? Will I lose my tooth?,

Is it possible to have the attachments on the back of the teeth? Or can I have no attachments and just increase treatment time?

November 23rd, 2010
Q.
Hi Yesterday I had my first aligners fitted and i have attachments on the top and bottom. I thought the entire point of Invisalign was that they fitted close against the teeth and were invisble? My attachments are so obvious that i am horrified with the end result and i am considering giving up on the whole thing – howvever im not even sure this is an option as my dentist has had to shave between my teeth so now i have noticable gaps. I am so disappointed with Invisalign – no where on the website does it mention attachments – whats worse is that looking on the internet it seems everyone has to have them so why is this not stated as standard???? the main questions i want to ask are whether there are any alternatives? for example, can i have the attachments on the back of the teeth rather than the front? is it possible to have no attachments and just increase the period of wear instead? if i take the attachments off my teeth is there any way to remove the bump in the aligner? Please help – i am totally devastated! thanks ,
