My Invisalign Journey- Overjet/overbite

I've worn metal braces before and my teeth are straight on the upper jaws and lower jaw. The only problem was the upper jaw is protruding out. Overjet sufferers will understand this- my upper teeth are always constantly grinding against my lower lips. It hurts so much that I've decided to go for invisaligns. I'm on day 2 of tray 1 right now :) and I'm looking forward to the day of a perfect bite! Here are some pictures. I'll be updating u guys when I get my second tray. That's when my dentist would put in the attachments. oh and by the way, notice the big buccal corridor at the sides of my mouth. I told my dentist I would like to reduce them, so he gave me the opportunity to expand my arches a little ;)

I'm on day 5 of my invisaligns right now. To those who are comtemplating between metal braces and invisalign, i'd say go for invisaligns! Invisaligns are a million times more comfortable than metal braces. Metal braces seem to apply much more forces. I remember I couldn't eat vegetables at all, all i could eat was soft foods like cooked oat. With invisaligns, i could eat anything I like.

So far, invisaligns have reduce the grinding of my upper teeth against my lower lips. There's a bit of pressure here and there especially on my lower incisors. I'll be updating again when I get my attachments!

Hey all! It's been so long since my last review. I just wore the 11th tray and this was the tightest. I've 19 more to go but I've already seen improvements. You can check out the new comparisons between the first and my current teeth. I'm already so happy with the treatment. As I've mentioned, i wore metal braces before and those were the most horrible and painful experiences. Invisalign is absolutely comfortable, but I've to warn ya, you will experience soreness for 3-4 days of a new tray.

I'll be updating further on the 15th! Keep watching this space!
