Don't believe the orthodontist. I got scammed into Invisalign by an ortho who said I would lose all my teeth to periodontal disease later if I didn't close my gaps (I have healthy gums now).

This first ortho told me that i am not a candidate for Invisiline, and then I asked about the braces on the back of the teeth.
