Tomorrow, I have an apointment for my fittings and moldings and I am so excited. I have always smiled and never had a single care about what anyone has to say about my smile. My smile is just a part of me and I never let it bother me. I made a promised to myself that I would make things better for myself. Eating healthier, working out more and I have done so for 2 years. So my rewards was to change something I couldn't do myself. I decided to get Invisalign and start my way to a more satisfied me. So, I set up the appointments and tomorrow is just another step to the finish line. I will upload pictures of my soon to be awesome smile a little later.

Yesterday, I went for my fittings. They took a lot of pictures from different angles and took a molding of my bite. Nothing too painful or uncomfortable. I should have my invisalign in the next 3-4 weeks. I am so excited! I already made dental kits so I can brush my teeth at any time, but now I have to wait. I'm feeling like a kid who's waiting for Christmas. One step closer to my finish line.

I received a call on Friday that my ClinCheck would be ready for me to see tomorrow. I will get a chance to see a 3-d demonstration of what my teeth will look like after I finish my treatment. How awesome is that!! Every time I get a call from my ortho gets me super excited. I can not wait to see what it will look like and hopefully I can get a copy to post online. Another step completed. I will update tomorrow after my appointment.

Just came back from my appointment and I am super amazed with my video. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a copy of the video but I will have 26 trays and I should be done in a year. How EXCITING!!!! I will have a few attachments for rubber bands. Has anyone else had any experiences with rubber bands and invisalign. I can not wait to update!!! 2 more weeks until my trays arrive!!

Super excited!!! Tomorrow, I get my first set of trays. I have no idea how things are going to go for me. I hope the least amount of discomfort but I am keeping my thoughts very realistic. After reading a few review, I noticed that the first days are always the hardest. Hopefully, it won't be too painful. I will update my status afterwards to give the good/bad news.

It is hard to wait for something like this, isn't it?!! Oh well, I guess it just makes it that much more exciting once you get the trays and can actually get going. :)

p.s. Good job making the dental kits!! I bet you will have a great result, as it sounds like you are really committed to this!!

It sounds like you are making some great choices to really take care of yourself - good job with that!!

I hope all goes well with your appointment tomorrow. You'll have to fill us in on how you did with the impressions. Sometimes that can feel like a real mouth full!
