The Story So Far -Los Angeles, CA

I am on day 3 with my first Invisalign trays. Day 1 was actually a breeze (other than the smell of the adhesive they used to put the buttons on). Day 2 my teeth began feeling a little tender and now day 3 they're very sore and the tip of my tongue is a little irritated, but so far I am happy.
My dentist had a deal going on for Invisalign - $2500 to qualifying patients and since I already went through the braces process as a teenager (but didn't wear my retainer) I only needed 6 months of treatment to re-align my teeth. Can't wait to see how my teeth move into their proper place!

Tray 2 of 10

Currently on Day 3 of my second set of trays. I didn't feel much discomfort when I first put them in but 24 hour later things in my mouth were feeling a little tight. I took some Advil before bed and haven't felt any pain since.

No noticeable differences yet.

Getting ready for Tray 3

Has anyone else thought that their teeth were pushing further back? I start Tray 3 in four days and every now and again I feel like my teeth are worse off from where they started.
