    Thanks for the input. Not like I have a choice really. Doc says I need some sort of ortho then I need it.

    Starting with the invisiline first. See where it goes from there.

    The invisalign don't hurt nearly as much as standard braces. The initial tray does hurt about the same as a standard tightening session, but the sucessive trays don't hurt nearly that much. That is, as long as you follow you dentists instruction on wearing them as much as possible during the day. Plus, most of my friends didnt' even realize that I had gotten them until I pointed it out.

    I used to dive with braces. Once you get used to them being in your mouth above water, you get used to them being in your mouth below water.
