It was a lovely experience coming back to my appointments with Dr Sylvia Tan.
She as well as the nurses there were super patient with me and had always been welcoming. Definitely a wonderful experience :)
The consent forms have been signed, your scans are done and the money’s been paid. Your super-organised smart-phone gently reminds you that this day next week, your orthodontist will finally be fitting your Invisalign aligners. A sudden panic drains you.
Yes, you've heard all the horror stories from friends – no snacking, no selfies, no social life! You ask yourself, what have I signed up for?!!
Is Invisalign for everyone? Why is it so expensive? Will I get a good result? These are some common Invisalign-related questions I get, be it in the dental surgery or whilst having coffee with friends.
Gone are the days where patients come into the clinic asking for those awful metal steel braces. As Dr Meow mentioned in her previous post on various types of braces treatment in Singapore, Invisalign is all the rave these days.
We live in an aesthetically-driven society and moving with times, orthodontic treatment has certainly evolved. Orthodontists are now able to provide patients with good outcomes using more "invisible" braces.
Yippee! You're finally down to your last few aligners. The end is near, and you can see the light at the end of your Invisalign tunnel.
Before you jump too quickly for joy, here are a few things on your checklist you should go through before you bid adieu to your aligners.

Wearing braces can be rather daunting due to the amount of commitment required and time involved. The average treatment can range from 12 to 36 months (this varies due to the complexity of each case).
