My Invisalign Journey! - Melbourne, AU

After I paid my deposit, it took only 1 week for my Invisalign trays to arrive! pretty quick. I got the trays fitted today and I can feel some tightness in my teeth. It was so hard to remove. I felt like I was going to break the tray because I was pulling it too hard. I hope they are durable for some time because I usually clench my teeth at night. I don't want to have to pay $250 for a replacement...


About after 5 hours of wearing the trays, my teeth started to hurt.
I seriously don't know how I'm going to manage brushing my teeth after I eat something.


I have 20 aligners and my treatment will be done by the end of this year woo!!

So it has been almost a week now with my...

So it has been almost a week now with my invisalign. It is so much easier to remove and there is no more tightness and pain which I'm very happy about. Now, I don't realise I'm actually wearing them anymore. I'm still salivating alot but I think this is going to diminish soon. I'm trying my best to wear the trays for a minimum 22 hours a day but it gets hard. I read somewhere you're not supposed to brush your teeth straight after you eat because of the acid in the food which makes the enamel soft. And you're supposed to wait 30 minutes. I'm also scared of getting cavities. I really hope I don't get any :/

I put my tray number 3 on at night on Wednesday and it felt like tray 1 all over again. It hurt so much! It took a day or 2 for me to get used to the trays in my mouth again. I don't see any improvements yet but I'm so excited !

IPR on wednesday 10/7/2013

Im on tray 13 of 20 and I really notice a difference in my smile. It's more straighter! IPR is when the dentist shaves the sides of your teeth to make more room for the other teeth. The good thing about it is: it's painless, but there was some bleeding in my gums. What I didn't like about it was the sound of the tool that they used (it sounded like a drill) and how water just splattered all over my face -__-
7 trays left!! WOO can't wait. I'm going to get my next IPR done in 2 weeks.

tray 13 of 20

I forgot to add, my teeth hurt sooooooo much when I wore my next trays. It was like day 1 all over again.

My dentist was very knowledgable and informative. He took time to go through the whole procedure of Invisalign. He told me about the attachments and IPR. He answered all my questions and was very approachable. Other dentists I went to was not informative at all. They didn't explain anything.
