I've just come back from consultation. He said mine will cost the equivalent of just over 5k. I have no idea how reasonable that is, and how much of a cut the the practice you go to takes after Invisilign's costs, and I have no idea whether there is any benefit in getting a second opinion or waiting until I am in the UK to do it.
He said I would need a minimum of 20 trays top and bottom to correct my cross bite.
Does anyone know if you can have one level done at a time- ie upper jaw only then lower jaw? My lower jaw is quite good and I think would respond quickly- but the upper jaw might take 2 years I was told.
I'm on tray 4 of 24. Mine is costing just under £4k - dentist in central London if that works for you. I'm really happy with them. No-one has noticed or commented on them, despite the attachments. I find them a little tight when I change trays, but they are then pretty unnoticeable. The only difficulty I have is cleaning them really thoroughly, as it's hard to get the toothbrush in to them properly/without too much force. They can also only do so much if you have an overbite.
The only other downside is that - if you're me - you become obsessed with looking at other people's teeth!
Well to be fair he didn't say how many trays. He just said that there were two price bands, under 20 and over 20, and I would definitely need 20+, and therefore I would pay the higher price. But he said it would cost the same no matter how many over 20 I had.
Are we assuming that '20 trays' means 20 top and bottom = 40?
