One Patient’s Story Navigating Adult Orthodontics With Aligners

Posted .

Before I sit down to write a blog, an obvious idea comes to mind. That idea always comes from the question; “What would our readers find most valuable in their search for more confidence and a healthier smile either for themselves or a family member?” I take that idea and gather what I consider the most helpful information to share. This week, I couldn’t come up with anything more helpful, in my opinion, than a story that was shared with us by one of our adult patients about her experience with “aligner” treatment in our office. Here’s Wendy’s story:

“I am a 40-year-old woman and mom of four kids, who just finished her Invisalign treatment with Coleman Orthodontics and I could not be happier. 

I spent the past 10 years unhappy with my smile. Whenever I looked at pictures, all I noticed was the crookedness of my teeth. I also noticed as I was getting older, they were getting worse.

 I knew there were options, but they felt overwhelming, difficult to maintain and impractical for my stage of life.  I worried about so many things; would it be painful? Would it be difficult to take them out and put them in? How would I look as an adult with “retainers”? Could I keep track of the Invisalign with the busyness of my day? Could I fit another appointment into my life? Would I like how they turned out? 

It took 14 months to complete. The Invisalign aligners were not painful. They were easy to take in and out. I kept the case in my purse and had no problem while I was out and about removing them and putting them back in. I barely noticed them when I had them on; they were very comfortable. 

Dr. Coleman was so amazing to work with. He listened to my concerns and was so easy to work with. His staff is also amazing. I could always find an appointment that worked, I never had to wait and they got me in and out quickly and efficiently. I never had any issues or concerns arise, but I knew if I did, they would be available. I couldn’t believe how great my Invisalign treatment was. My only wish was to have done it sooner. 

I have absolutely loved my new smile and I’m so grateful to Dr. Coleman and his staff.”
