I just put in my 6th tray last night for my invisalign. My 2 front teeth have made dramatic progress and it seems are approximately halfway there to straightening out. My teeth are crowded and the 2 front teeth have been overlapping. The straightening is now noticeable (even by the hubster)!
During the 2nd week of invisalign my top tray broke. There was a crack in it and it was annoying me. It was 2 days before I was leaving for my cruise. I went in and the dr. said he had never had that happen before and just to skip to the next set of trays.
The cruise was such a pain to have invisalign. It did keep me from snacking. It did not keep me from eating my 6 meals a day though. Every time I ate I would go back to my room to floss, brush and put the trays back in. Luckily, our room had a great location – – no poop deck.
I am getting used to invisalign but it is a pain. Every time I switch to new trays I am in pain and take lots of advil for 2 days. It makes me tired also. I do put them in after dinner so that way most of the pain is while I’m sleeping & I hope to sleep it off. The pain must be because my teeth are crowded. I’ve read other blogs about invisalign and most people feel only slight discomfort.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed one of my buttons were missing. Ugh, how gross. You know that I swallowed it. I had to go back in and have them attach another. I hope the remaining 9 months go smoothly.
