My husband grew up in the foster care system and he didn’t get very good physical or emotional care during that time.
He never saw a dentist frequently when he was a kid and his teeth have suffered from that early damage. He lost a few to cavities and extractions and the rest of the teeth were in horrible shape when we got together. When we finally had insurance and money for braces, Jack decided to get an invisalign. Invisalign is a special type of braces that are great for adults. The tooth aligners are made of a flexible material. Each set is specifically made to move your teeth a small amount. Invisalign can be great for a multitude of purposes. They can help with crowding and spacing issues and they can also help with overbite issues. Invisalign braces are not covered by all insurance plans. Most places that accept insurance will only cover traditional metals. My husband had several sets of Invisalign tooth aligners and each time they moved his teeth a little bit more. He had some implants and all of his teeth fixed and now he has a wonderful smile. It is nice to go places with him, because he loves to show off all of his pretty teeth. It took a couple of years for all of the work to be completed. It was an exhausting process and we made lots of trips to the dentist. They certainly did cost us a great deal of money, so I am glad that he is happy with the way that the dentistry turned out.
