During one of my visits to see Dr. Sese for my cleaning, she gently asked whether I had ever considered Invisalign to straighten out my teeth. I must admit, I gave her an earful about how back when I was 16, I had visited two orthodontists – first one said although there was nothing wrong with my teeth, he would still take me on if that was what I wanted. With that said, my aunt took me for a second opinion. We visited another orthodontist with an imaging facility who was completely opposed to working on my teeth because he said that in order to straighten out my teeth, he would have to pull some teeth out, and he was unwilling to destroy my smile for it. Dr. Sese then explained to me that technology has changed since 1986 and that they won’t have to pull out a whole tooth/or two as was required back then and my profile won’t be so drastically affected. I wasn’t immediately convince thinking I’ve gotten through all these years just fine, people have always complimented my smile, I’m a forty something woman, do I really care?! But for whatever reason, I decided to have the consultation with her, and since my insurance was going to cover it, I gave it a shot. I was still apprehensive when I went in for the work, but Dr. Nhat made me feel at ease. He explained how he was just going to shave off fractions of several teeth to make room for the movement and I need not worry. Being in a dental chair is never easy for me, but I can tell that Dr. Nhat was good at his craft so I laid back and was actually able to relax. After two months of invisalign, I met up with a cousin from out of the country and she asked me if I had any lost any weight… we later figured out that it was the Invisalign. Similar experience with a friend six months later, who said “it’s about time you straightened your teeth, you look fabulous!” It’s now a year later and I am done with my Invisalign tray, I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! I’m just wondering why no one told me to do this sooner!! Thank you Dr. Sese for the much needed recommendation! And thank you Dr. Nhat for my awesome smile! I am so much more confident for it! I would recommend to anyone that if you are considering Invisalign to just do it… you won’t regret it!
