Lost retainer beginning of pandemic and haven’t been able to get replacement (Covid/Moving Out of State/ Other Priorities). Top teeth have shifted back to some extent, bottom teeth have built in retainer so haven’t moved. Back at parents home now and want to fix this mistake, what are realistic expectations? Full Invisalign program ~ 2-3k, Orthodontist to give me some break since we’ve already paid X thousand, some middle ground? Just want to try and be prepared on fair expectations.

It may be slightly fixable with a new retainer but if you want more movement, you’ll need Invisalign. Worth getting a consult but I can’t imagine you’d need to wear them for long.

Look into SmileDirect or Candid. So much cheaper, and you don't have to be at the ortho all the time.

Scheduled an appointment and they think a retainer w/ bubble (for adjustments) could work. My teeth have shifted a decent amount in last year, if they ask how long so I say a year or a few months?

I lost my last Invisalign tray and so much shifting 😞😞😞 over 3 years have passed, so I expect to “start over” to some extent. My ortho definitely doesn’t have the same files anymore either. I might do SmileDirect because I still feel unsafe going into an open-mouth situation during Covid.

I personally love SDC, and have had great results with it. All the at home companies do have active sub-reddits, so check those out for other reviews.

Same thing happened to me , my teeth shifted back in a matter of 6 months. Paid $2500 in Invisalign to put it back. Found a Groupon and went with the cheapest dentist I could find Bc my situation was not a very complex procedure.

Insurance didn’t cover.

For those of us who fall in to the overweight, obese, or morbidly obese categories (71.6% of us) or for anyone with a “pre-existing” condition impacting Covid outcomes - how are you managing anxiety surrounding Covid and the risk factor of being obese? In particular, I’ve seen a few posts addressing obesity and coronavirus on here that - on top of all the news articles in the last few months - have led to crippling anxiety. Additionally, what lifestyle changes have you made, if any?
