- 9 Apr 2013
On my 2nd day of Invisalign. OMG my teeth are sore and my tongue is taking the beating of brushing up on them. Plz tell me this will go away. I feel like my tongue is getting scraped by a metal wit brush throughout the day. It's the back right of my tongue, the side.
I'm still trying to figure out a non-painful way to remove my upper tray when eating & tray. I know it's my 2nd day but geez I'm stuck with this for 2 yrs. now in thinking wat I got myself into. I feel like a prisoner, chained down with these trays lol
Hopefully as time goes, it will get easier!
Well today is my last day of tray 1, tonight i put...
- 22 Apr 2013
After the 1st week having the trays, i got used to popping them out and finally got strength to eat chewy but not that chewy foods. i still have limitations. But this past wknd, i will admit i had them off for a very long period of time during the day. Drinking wine is my bad habit since i sip on it which makes me keep the trays off longer. By bedtime, i put them back in and when i wake up the next day, my teeth are so sore. They're still sore right now and it's Monday.
I know i need to keep them in for the recommended 22hrs but its so difficult on the wknds.
As i look through everyones review, i get impatient. I want to see results now but wont see any proly till next year. I will have 29 trays for top and bottom but my dentist said he wont be done with me. He said my teeth will look straight but i still have more work to be done. ugh! i was a little disappointed but I am literally paying for a 7k smile.
Hope tonight goes well for me on switching to tray 2. I know i would need to file it down to prevent it cutting in on my rightside tongue :( I will post in a couple days of how i am doing but dont be surprise i post earlier from an angry rant of how painful the 2nd tray is.
1 May 2013 - Tray 3: Well i started tray 3 a week...
- 1 May 2013
When I came home, ate dinner, brush and put on Tray 2 for top and bottom. I didnt care if it was cracked but couldnt take the feeling of the attachments poking my gums. And i had a feeling my dentist would switch me to tray 3. And he did. Tray 3 is super tight. I'm on the 2nd day and my teeth are sore and achy. Also they put another attachment on. Its the top one with the teeth hiding in the front. It feels weird and hurts. So right now i have a total of 15 attachments, 10 at the bottom and 5 on top including the rubber bands i wear :(
I still havent manage to get my lisp under control. Its so embarrasing when i talk and i feel like i need to talk a little louder. I see others say the lisp goes away in a few weeks but its been a few weeks and i feel with this 3rd tray it got worse.
Even with all this pain and discomfort, i know i will LOVE the end results.
29 May 13 - 5th tray
- 29 May 2013
Last night I started on my 5th tray. So far it's going well. Just had to do minor filings but other then that, I have very little soreness. But on my last trays I notice on one of my teeth it doesn't cover it well, it's my top canine on the right. It doesn't hug the tooth, kinda weird. Not sure if I need to go in.
The biggest problem I have is keeping them on for 22hrs. It's so stressful that I have to rush through my meals. Since I got Invisalign, I can't enjoy a cup or 2 of coffee. I'm literally burning my throat trying to hurry up.
Also still having a noticeable lisp. I hate it, so embarrassing! Again having these rubber bands are so thick that its not very stretchy which makes my mouth keep shut.
Well hope this works! I'm paying good money for a good smile :D

I don't see a difference at all of my teeth, only my bite. But i guess i won't see anything for a long time.
Next week I go in to pick up more tray's and see if they need to do
something with my attachment on my "problem tooth"

10 Dec 13 - 19th Tray
- 10 Dec 2013
Tonight I will be putting on the 19th tray, have it right now. Chewing on my chewy thing. In the past months, I have seen a difference which I am glad.
I have been lazy of not wearing it for the whole 22hrs. It seems like everyday I wear it for 4-5 but mostly not at all. For sure I wear it to bed. During the day is the one I need to work on of keeping it on. I know I know bad me!
