    I would like someone can provide advice for me.
    I have front teeth diastema (around 1mm) on my upper teeth. I would like to use invisalign (no other invisible aligner(like smart direct club) in my country, and I don't want to brace use traditional method). However, I have seen a few of the dentist that has different result and summarised as following:
    - 14 weeks can complete without IPR. I have not asked the detail. I will re-consult again later.
    - 1 year with IPR (due to overbite issue, but I don't think there is a problem).
    - They don't recommend to brace the teeth (They recommend using bonding, but I don't prefer).

    I don't know what should I do now.

    Even if you close the gap with some sort of orthodontic treatment like Invisalign, you will either have to wear regular retainers, or wire and bond the teeth behind to stop them drifting again.

    Probably, if that's all the orthodontist does. But you'll have to get going now if you have some sort of event in October.

    If when you close your mouth, your front teeth touch the lower front teeth and you close the space up above and don't do anything to the bottom, your front teeth will hit your bottom teeth early and they will be sour, this may push your jaw backwards and press your condyle against the retrodiscal tissue. You can create a TMJ problem from pushing your jaw backwards.

    If you close space up above and don't reduce the size of the lower anterior, you can put pressure on lower jaw to go back. This can cause you some TMJ problems.

    I have talked about this quiet a bit, watch and get some information about it:

    How about close the teeth space for the front six teeth?
    Do you mean that it is required to do the IPR?
