First Week of Invislign...hope All is Well

So far so good but couple questions for you all...

So far so good but couple questions for you all. First, when you take your retainers out to eat, how long a clip are you taking them out for. I take them out for about 30 minutes per meal...is that about right? Also, I'm on my first retainer...my 3rd day. It does not seem as 'tight' as it did the first day which I'm sure is expected but just wanted to be sure. The only example I could give is that imagine you are sucking out of a straw...when I pretend to do that, I can feel my retainter tighten up a bit. Almost like there is some space there. Is that normal? MJ

Hey I'm on day 4 with invisalign it doesn't hurt juts a bit uncomfortable the first 2 days or so. Now I'm getting use to it. You will wake up with headaches so just take some advil or excedrine before bed. The cost is between 3000-4,000. Whoever says its not invsisible is just being way too self concience b/c when I tell people I have inv. their like I don't even see it and some people I had to show for them to believe me. Def worth it!

hi this is perfectly normal. I too am doing invisalign in the Philly area and I am on tray 9 of 10 (almost done!) yes, the first few days there is a slight pain but not as bad as regular braces.Also, the trays are somewhat loser by day 3 and 4. I had normal braces when I was a kid and invisalign is a walk in the park compared to those aweful things. I only take mine out to eat and then I put them right back in (after rinseing them off first). So it sounds like you are doing a good job! All my friends say they notice a big difference in my smile. So, keep up the good work!
