I can eat whatever I want, when ever I want.
Always and I mean always I'm I brushing my teeth. [I am a huge snack person]
Sometimes I would debate if I wanted to eat because I knew I would have to brush my teeth afterwards. [ Yes, I am lazy]
Teeth problem history:
Why I have an overjet:
I sucked my thumb until I was 18-19 [Yes, but fun fact, if you do not pressure a child. Children will quit on there own. Remember this and take it with you!]
Why I needed invisalign:
I did not post an old picture, but when I was 18 and under, I had a huge gap between my two front teeth. My bottom teeth were prefect as is. My wisdom teeth came in when I was about 18 - 19 [They have been removed since then]. My wisdom teeth closed my gap and crowded my lower teeth. I was upset for a while, but I was happy my gap was gone. After my wisdom were in; a lot my teeth still continued to move. My upper front tooth began to cross over my other front tooth. It was a slow process, but it started to become noticeable. I told myself, I rather have my gap back then to watch this happen.
I waited a little longer to see how things would turn out after my wisdom teeth were removed. I figured that when my wisdom teeth were removed, that my upper two top teeth would go back to normal, and that the crowding would relax. [Well that didn't happen] I never hated my old smile and I was always told I had wonderful smile. I always thought my smile brought me character. I am still very worried that I will loose that when I am done with treatment.
Process and procedures:
I have 26 trays for my top mouth
and 29 trays for my bottom mouth
18 months of treatment
And rubber bands to be added.
Currently tray 6 of 26 and 29
Overjet, and Lower Crowding - Anchorage, AK
Pros: I can eat whatever I want, when ever I...
Man I am suppose to be on try 19, but I keep...
I like this, but now I am wishing I would have just got normal braces.
Also, my bonds keep falling out. I just want them...
They removed the bonds my last visit. I am not...
2 week wait
My most recent picture updated finally. I can't wait till this is all over. -.-
15 trays turns into 25
A gap has recently formed in the front teeth. The doctor in the beginning told me this would happen. It's a little gap, and I am flossing like crazy now because of all the food in between my teeth being left. You should see them after an apple is consumed.
By tray 8, they will be putting attachments on my front teeth. (Oh the horror). I am somewhat displeased. (Since I am single again... argh!)
I hope they attachments in the front are not very viable. (Pray with me)
8 of 25...
So far so good. My only trouble now is. That is takes some time taking my top aligner off. It can be a wee painful too. Including the annoyance, but hey I am almost done.
I am on tray 8 of 25 in touch-ups. I will aid a new picture soon.
I am not egared to post a picture either. :P! So I am on tray 18 of 25. And than I am done.
I will post the final when it is all said and done.
21 out of 25
Teeth: I have a slight gap between my front teeth, but they told me it should go away but the last tray. I still have rubber bands on. My bite is starting to match, and I don't feel as if I am fighting to bit right these days.
Cons, My tooth is really loose on the bottom. I am not sure why?
I want to post a picture, but really all these trays have been doing it pushing my teeth inward. So to me they still appear the same, just looks like they are getting smaller. I will post a final picture when it is all said and done.
So tray 21 out of 25 for touch up trays. I have a feeling I may have to put some metal ones on if this does not work.
My teeth look wonderful! I am happy. In closing I can say that I am happy I did this. It was worth it. I am so happy after this long process that I followed the rules and finished my braces on time.
I have to wear a retainer at night and they put a metal thing to line my bottom teeth. I am off for a dental cleaning tomorrow. I am so happy you guys and I am sad that is it all over.
I will have follow up for a year and than after that I am kicked out of the nest. I also was told if I loose my retainer it would cost $200 plus to replace top and bottom.
My phone broke so I can not post a last picture at this time. GOOD DAY EVERYONE
IT WAS WORTH IT!!!!!
I choose this provider because my insurance was covered by them, and because they allowed creditcard as well. They also offer me a promotional deal, so I took the opportunity. UPDATED*** It was a great experience! It was hard for me at first, but I am glad they offered a payment plan. They answer all my questions upfront and in closing. The doctor did not pull or take any of my teeth. In the past I was told teeth would need to be pulled. Thank you for reading my review and have a good day.
