1st Tray Day 2 - Santa Monica, CA

My Name is Samantha, I am 20yrs old. My teeth...

My Name is Samantha, I am 20yrs old. My teeth aren't straight, but they aren't extremely crooked either, but fter a couple of years of wanting a perfect smile I finally was able to get my Invisalign. This is only my 2nd day, I'm on tray 1 of 13 for my upper and tray 1 of 8 for my lower. The first day of invisalign was extremely frustrating. The soreness in my teeth and the aching weren't unbearable but since there is nothing you can do to get rid of it, the frustration of the discomfort does get to you. I couldn't wait to eat because my liners got to come out! LOL I was also really excited for bed because I knew that the discomfort would be non existent in my sleep. (it was uncomfortable but not enough to not let me sleep properly) When I woke up in the middle of the night the discomfort was still pretty bad but after waking up for work it is way easier than the first day. Although still some discomfort I hope it only gets easier!
