Columbus, Ohio Invisalign Dentist
Hi! My name is Kathy and I am a very happy Invisalign patient. I started my Invisalign treatment at Grandview Dental Care in April 2008 and I am just finishing up. It really went fast!
In the beginning of my treatment I had some trouble getting my aligners in but with the help of the staff I was able to get the hang of it. My trick was to position the aligner over my teeth and then start on one side and push the aligner on with my finger. The Invisalign aligners kind of “pop” like a Tupperware seal and then you know it’s on. To get the aligner out it helps to have a fingernail to get it started. Even with these minor inconveniences if I had the choice to do Invisalign all over again, I would.
I decided to do Invisalign because my teeth were crowded and when I closed my mouth there was a tooth turned out that you could see under my lip. (see my before/after picture here) I didn’t like the way it looked and the front tooth just seemed to be protruding more, so I came to see Dr. Thompson during one of their Smile Extravaganzas.
None of my friends could tell I was wearing the aligners until I told them. I thought it was harder to talk but no one else noticed a difference in my speech.
In the beginning the aligners were really tight but they were moving my teeth so I guess that is to be expected. I was also not a big fan of the “sand paper” adjustments between my teeth but it wouldn’t stop me from doing Invisalign.
Dr. Thompson really knows what he is doing. I was a little concerned because I was near the end of my treatment and my front tooth was being stubborn about moving into it’s final position but it eventually moved into place just like the clincheck and Dr. Thompson said it would.

So, if you are on the fence about whether or not to do Invisalign, if you are self conscious about your teeth I say “do it”! The results are incredible, the time flew by and I could see the results a long the way.
The people here at Grandview Dental Care were wonderful! Thanks for my new smile!
