Since Russia has invaded Ukraine, PissedConsumer.com can't stay aside. With this review, we present our team's opinion only - nothing more than that.

We as an organization always defend the freedom of speech by providing a platform for consumers to voice their opinions and to talk about any problems they may have with various businesses.

Today, we want to give voice to the tragedy of the people of Ukraine and let the world know the truth.

A lot of major companies suspended their business in russia not to support the war.

However, there are still large international corporations that continue operating and paying taxes in russia.

Taxes that are used to finance the army of the aggressor. With this video, we want to show the consequences of such a decision for civilians in Ukraine and ask these companies to stop doing business in russia.

Align Technology - Allergic Reactions to Invisalign braces
Updated by user Feb 07, 2022

Align Technology has never contacted us. OUr Dentist has worked har to try to get information but to no avail.

The dentist has arranged for us to get a full refund, however they want us to pick up any future medical expenses which could be considerable. as it has been...

Original review Jan 08, 2022
BeI started with Invisalign in August 2020. This was supposed to be a 12 month program The Dentist used scare tactics to get me to buy the program saying that if I didn't do this I would lose my front 4 teeth.

Later I found out that is not true. Two instances where they did not send my next set on a timely basis so that I had one brace in my mouth for 11 weeks and another time for 10 weeks. The second time I became allergic to the material I have found out that many individuals have had reactions to these braces, some have been hospitalized because of the reaction. Nowhere in their material does it mention this possibility.

In my case I have had sores in my mouth, swelling of my tongue, swelling in my lips, and there is some concern that I may have developed Kidney problems from this as my kidney function began to decrease shortly after starting to use this product.

My dentist has tried to find out what chemical has leached from the braces so that I can get treatment, but they refuse to give out any information. Most doctors will not know how to provide treatment to reverse the problem

Loss:
$3500

Preferred solution: I would like them to tell me what chemical has leached into my body so t5hat I can get it treated. Further because I was lied to by an Invisalign representative I want a full refund, the completion of the program free retainer.

User's recommendation: Be very careful if you are considering purchasing this product, ask many questions, look at many web site reviews of Invisalign

Invisalign needs to be redone

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I am writing to tell you I am unhappy with the ending result with my Invisalign case that I paid $5000 for. I was telling my dentist in the end of the Invisalign treatment that my bite was off and that I wasnt happy with the anterior alignment results. My patient notes, if they are saved at your office, should say that I mentioned before, my occlusal contact was/is off. My left side touches but my right side doesnt. After my Invisalign treatment was done, I wore my retention retainers for an entire 6 months and I told you my bite was not settled correctly. I was somehow immediately switched to a night guard that wasnt properly fitting when delivered, but I was told my teeth and bite would adjust fine with regular wear and was dismissed very unprofessionally. After 6+ months of wearing the guard I noticed I couldnt properly fit back into my ending retainers per Invisalign. My guard inevitably cracked, so I stopped wearing it and switched back to regularly wearing my Invisalign retainers. I have been wearing both top and bottom Invisalign retainers and my bite has not adjusted itself. I am sad to say the occlusal contact begins mainly on my left side towards my premolars and canine. Thats where I feel my teeth touching from the time I take off my retainers in the morning and all through the day. I tend to always chew on my left side because of the contact. I also have been experiencing mouth\jaw shaking when I dont have my retainers in for over 10 hours. My mouth feels unsettled and often I want to grind my teeth because of how my bite feels. My teeth alignment and bite are in a detrimental state right now considering the long term effects. I also want to mention that when you polished down my teeth after treatment you over- drilled my left canine and it no longer symmetrically matches my right canine. I will have to spend money on getting that cosmetically recovered in the future. Also my attachments were not polished off adequately. I have miserably waisted money and so much time trying to have faith that my teeth would settle into a good position.

Who are these people

I dont know who'se behind these negative reviews but invisalign does what it says it will do straighten your teeth No process is without its difficulties but invisalign will work if used according to your dentists instructions Even traditional orthodontics has its negative components however invisalign is the easiest way to achieve the desired rsults

Align Technology: The Biggest Med Troll in Silicon Valley.

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I am a software expert and have analysed the Align Technology Alignment Process. On top of that, I analysed the Aligners themselves by taking them apart in a special laboratory. My findings were absolutely shocking, and I feel it my responsiblity to communicate my findings to the general public. Some information about the Aligners will not be put in this review. One of the major concepts the company introduces is something called Orthodontic Caps. It is something similar to the following: "A doctor cuts you open to displace a bone, displaces the bone and then should sow you back up. Instead of sowing you back up, the doctor throws acid on the place where the bone displaced in order to cover his tracks. After this, he sows you back up and throws more acid on the sutures in case someone discovers them. If someone asks him what he did, he claims it was meant to be like this.". The beformentioned Orthodontic Caps, or Capped Faders, are Orthodontic Units to cover up Orthodontic Processes from reverse engineering. They do this in Layers and in hierarchies of Classes, so in the end, your whole jaw melts away in case 'it' decides to move. The Align Technology Doctor would claim this is 'necessary' to prevent Relapse and it was 'meant to be' to help you get that Hollywood Smile. But, ..., ever notice how fast an Orthodontic Relapse goes after taking out one of the Align Technology Aligners or after having Left the Align Technology Firm? The claim from the Align Technology Doctor that he wants to help you is a complete Lie, nothing is 'necessary' or 'meant to be', it is is simply Nonsense. Orthodontic Caps are usually only used in case a Tooth really does not want to stay and they don't even really exist outside of the Align Technology world. Align Technology also introduces Balanced Caps, meant to Balance Out any troublemaking Capped Faders. It effectively Balances all the Caps in your face, in order to make you believe you're getting that Great Hollywood Smile you've always longed for. Instead, Align Technology is Packing up -your- Jaw up and making you more and more their Customer and your Doctor a Slave to Align Technology. Another thing Align Technology does is Case Trolling. This is basically introducing Quirks in your Case. Like a Tooth which could have moved but needs to stay in the Shade. Or the size of an Arch which could have been Wider or Smaller. Or perhaps a little Headache here and there. Or a Temporal Mandibular Joint disorder. Even a problem with your Heart can be introduced. With Brass and Woodwinds there is also much fun and games you can get from Align Technology. Align Technology simply does this to keep the Workflow going, because Align Technologies work, makes you Free. They keep the Workflow going using Databases of Case Types and Grouping Algorithms, which handle the Production of -their- Aligners. Using Databases and Artificial Neural Networks, they can basically Load and Burn an entire Lingual Case Troll to keep you In The Loop of -their- Case Workflow. The Align Technology Certified Doctor will tell you he wants to help you with your Case to make you better. Instead, the Doctor and You are becoming more and more dependant on the Alignment Case Troll. The Alignment Case Troll, a group of Individuals sitting behind Computer Screens in the Firm's Headquarters, decides if it wishes to let you stay or go: if you can go you're left with a Bad *** and if you must stay you're there to Pay Money. In the Align Technology world they call it a Crash and Burn and a 'Feature' or 'Limitation' of the Technology. Another thing they do is Case Dropping and Prepared Refinements. With Case Dropping and Prepared Refinements, they send a Refinement to your Doctor and at the same time decide to Drop your Case. The reason they do this, is because they think your Case could be risky for their 'good' name in the Business. Say you're close to a Cardiac Arrest wearing one of their future Cases or your Bones are Resorbing, they will just Drop your Case and call it a Cold Zombie or a Freeze and Load (Pending) Case. They then wait, and if nobody can resolve your Case and you are still allright they hop back onto the bandwagon to handle your Case. The reason they send your Doctor a Refinement is to Market the Cold Zombie as another Success in The Align Technology world and keep Align Technology Safe from Harm. Another thing Align Technology does is introduce Chained Backpropagation in their Express Edition Aligners and Refinements. This is again an Artificial Neural Network Output Value, it is a complicated Physics Control which they Burn (with a Laser) onto the Aligners. You can see them on the Aligners, they are the small Shapes which look like Fish. Now, instead of those Fish helping you a hand to get your teeth into the right position; Align Technology does something else: it Backpropagates you back into the Align Technology Case. They can do this Backpropagation Process endlessly, effectively keeping you as customer for the rest of you Life. Another thing they do is Self Induced Capping or Induced *** Fading. This is in effect a manner of Orthodontic Processing where you, the humble Patient, are processing yourself. So every correction is processed by your own, constantly weakening, Jaw. You can feel this Self Induced Capping when you wear the Aligners. After a few days, your Jaw not only feels Sore but Weak. This additional Weakness is called Fading or Capping. It eventually destroys you entire Jawbone and resorbs your Roots. They do this to keep your Jaw, and you, weak enough not to leave the Firm to go to another Orthodontist for Treatment. Even if you make it out of the Firm, you will feel weak and exhausted. Another thing they do is Market Projection and Embedded Lingual Hypnosis through Lingual Flow Differentiation. Ever feel uncomfortable wearing the Aligners? Ever feel you are being Aligned but feel there is something not quite right? Even felt you were getting aligned and feeling great? Well, then you're probably being processed for more Aligners. Align Technology does this by changing your Lingual Flow. Eventually you lose orientation and it is bad for your Cardio and you can forget about playing a musical instrument without the support of Align Technology. This is not the only thing Align Technology does. Align Technology also uses aggressive Marketing to make you believe you can get that great Hollywood Smile. They also prevent you, once you are an Align Case, to get a more effective Treatment elsewhere by messing up your Case. This is called Escapee Processing, it keeps you In The Loop of the Align Technology Case. Even if you manage to Escape, it will be difficult to find an Orthodontist who can Control your Case. Another thing it does is Embedded Case Dependency Filtering and Case Piling. What this is, is making you Dependent on Solutions from Align Technology alone, so not from Orthodontists, whilst problems are Piling up. The Dependency Filtering is introduced as Quirks in your ***, where you feel you cannot solve the Combination of your *** Problem. If you feel this, then you've probably been Dependency Filtered by Align Technology. The Jaw Classes which end up in your *** after Dependency Filtering are different from your standard Orthodontic Results Class. As a result of this, you become dependant on the Align Technology Firm to forever solve your Case. They also introduce the most terrifying Processes which even Dogs don't want to know about. For example, they may change your face, using advanced Lingual Orthodontic manipulations to change your Facial Features. But in this case, sometimes only you or your friends will notice the changes in your face and the way you look. They do this because they think you could be Emotionally Bound to the Company and become a Face Processor Customer for Life. They also introduce Psychological techniques to get you fearful about the outcome of your Case. This again is a Dependency Processing to make you more and more their Customer. Align Technology is probably the most Evil, the Biggest Trol in Silicon Valley. It trolls everyone; Patients, Customers, Doctors and so on and so forth. There is so much more I could say about Align Technology. I would advice: "Stay away from Align Technology, it wants you, and wants to keep you and has no ethics whatsoever except for its own ethics." You're much cheaper off with a Good Orthodontist, who works with Lingual or any other Alignment technique or the Orthodontic treatments which do not need to be retained or whatever he prescribes. That way, you can straighten out your teeth and enjoy a healthy life, for the rest of your life.

Align Technology: Inventions and the Customer

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Align Technology creates inventions like Virtual Brace Retainment for Holistic Healing and claims you'll then magically move towards your ideal Hollywood Smile. Virtual braces are a complete experiment and you the customer are a Guinea Pig. What a normal orthodontist usually does with Lingual Braces or Holistic Orthodontics or Orthodontics where Retention is not needed The Virtual Brace Retainment Experiment from Align Technology is meant to make you feel uncomfortable, not better, and meant to make you an Align Technology Customer. Let me stress that I know very much about Align Technology. Over 250.000 lines of Code were Ghost-Copied from the Align Technology Outsource Base, and studied it in detail. This process of Ghost-Code Copy and Analysis was absolutely necessary, no matter how Illegal, because Align Technology was damaging individuals with serious conditions. The Code itsself is complete nonsense; it only concentrates on Robotics, a Laserburner and Big Data, and was written to keep you as a 100% Align Technology Customer. The Financial Base Processing Code of Align Technology is dependant on you, as a Faulty Customer, to Generate Income. The more Faulty you as Customer, the more income Align Technology can generate for itsself. Align Technologies ultimate goal is to integrate the Cybernetic Human Being with you, the Customer, and make you pay rent for your own body.
