Back Story: As a child I never really had a problem with my teeth, but I always noticed some teeth I said I wouldn't mind getting some work done to. Always was complemented on my smile, but when you got up close and personal you were able to see the imperfections. I was offered the option of either doing traditional braces or Invisalign, but my Ortho suggested Invisalign due to my heavily rotated canine teeth and a few others. So here I am ready to document the next 15 months. I have 32 uppers/29 lower trays.
Tray 1: (Tray 1) has been eventful to say the least. In total I have 12 attachment, seven on the top and five on the bottom. Initially when the Dr. put them in there was slight pressure but it went away. But holy smokes day 2 and 3 I literally wanted to rip them out of my mouth. I had some problems (and still do) with the aligners irritating the inside of my gums and bottom of my tongue by my lower teeth. Day 8, I made an appointment to visit my Ortho to see if he could shave down the spots causing irritation. It hasn't been fixed 100%, but it is 75% better than before the visit. I am not sure if this will go away eventually, or I will just deal for he next 15 months. Lord knows I hope not. I will be changing into tray 2 in the next 5 days.
I believe the anticipation of changing to Tray 2 was more painful than the actual tray. Lol! I put Tray 2 in on Wednesday night (6/11). When I first put them in, there was a little tightness but nothing out of the norm. The next day when I woke up in the morning, there was pressure but nothing like Tray 1. In the pain department I would say 0.5/10 and pressure department 5/10. No major movement so I won't post any pictures. But I am starting to get use to these trays. Let's see what Tray 3 bring. Two trays and thirty more to go.
