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

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)
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.
