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
