I began this journal AFTER I completed my selection process and BEFORE I finished aligning my teeth.
I’ve estimated the time based on my choice. I estimate my experience to span 3 months or 15 weeks of wearing at home clear teeth aligners. I do NOT hold back. Some weeks are interesting. Some are uneventful. If you think something is left unanswered. Contact me.
My lower incisors show one back, one in front, the next further in front, then the fourth is back gain. It’s a mess. I honestly didn’t think I was a candidate. How can aligners fix this? How will they move these teeth in harmony?
WHO DO I CHOOSE?
My Search For Aligners was actually fun. You see, I write for a living. Research articles are some of my favorite tasks.
I don’t know about you, but despite having what my ex-fiance called, unsightly teeth, I do take care of them. I don’t want to break or chip any by picking the wrong company or process.
HOW I SELECTED MY TEETH ALIGNERS
This video is part of my full visual journal. It outlines my three metrics in selection as a consumer. 1. Safety. 2. Speed. 3. Price.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET ALIGNERS?
It took me less than a month to get aligners into my hands …mouth. This includes research, receiving my impression kit, payment, and receiving my actual aligners. Boom!
One week of research. Metrics: Safety, Speed & Price.
From the moment of pressing ‘order’ on webpage to unboxing, just three days. Fast.
This was fast. Unreal fast. From the day I submitted payment online to unboxing my aligners …14 days. Damn.
Total days: 24 . Next is how long it actually takes to straighten my teeth.
Technically, no, but you should see a dentist. There is a good reason why. Establish if your teeth are strong enough to handle the process. If you have cavities, your teeth can chip or break while wearing aligners. You may also have weak teeth. The only way to be sure is to find out in advance. See a dentist, or yes even an orthodontist.
