Well, I'm halfway through my first week and so far so good. There is some discomfort, but I'm not surprised because even though I don't have metal braces on my teeth, invisalign is still going to MOVE my teeth, so I didn't assume it would be pain free. The weirdest thing was that my dentist needed to file a space in between my left front tooth and the tooth next to it, so it's a bit weird when I eat and I'm very conscious of it when I take my trays out, but she promises me the gap will close by the second tray. i have crowding and an overbite, so the filing was to make room for my teeth to move. I'm glad I waited until I was 30 to do this because these things require a good amount of maintenance (brushing teeth after every meal, etc) and I've always been a snacker, so it's going to take some willpower to stop snacking so much because if the trays don't stay in for enough time each day, then i'm throwing my money away. i don't know if I would've been mature enough to do this when I was younger (though it's GREAT for my diet and upcoming wedding!)
