I have just started Invisalign treatmemt. I am on my second set of trays and will be going in to see the dentist for a check-up and to recieve my third and fourth sets.
Things have been going well so far. My second set of aligners did feel extremely tight when I first put them in but it didn't take long for the pressure to ease.

My bottom teeth don't look a huge amount different to me. In fact, one of my bottom teeth wasn't "tracking" (moving, I guess) properly so I had to leave both trays seven and eight in for an extra week. Because of the difficulty in moving by bottom teeth, I now have to keep the rest of my trays in for three weeks instead of the previous two. Annoying but as the dentist said, there's no point rushing through the process and being unhappy at the end.
I will be very excited to get tray 10 on - half way!
