19 Year Old Teen Invisalign Procedure - Toronto, ON

Haven't kept up much with progress picture. First...

Haven't kept up much with progress picture. First progress picture is of tray 13/32.

Early trays were very aggressive and had my teeth sore for days. After tray 6 they started to hurt less and less, until i hit tray 12 thats when the pain starting reoccurring and lasting for days.

So far progress is on point with that of my clincheck.

Looking good so far , appointments are quick and pain free.


Thank you for adding a picture!  Your teeth look great.  Was your main issue just spacing?

Spacing and I have a slight over-jet. Currently on tray 13/32 and wearing attachments and elastics.

One week remaining on tray 13

Still feeling pain on my top teeth , especially my two front ones. Probably b/c this tray was suppose to further close in the gap between my front two teeth.

Excited for tray 14.


Ah yes, the elastics.  I don't know if invisalign is just evolving, but we have gotten more and more people with elastics lately.  Here's a list of those I know who are currently active.

You've already been in your Invisalign long enough to be a great resource to newbies, though.  HenryZ is the only one of those who is as far as you--he's on tray 13 as well.  But he's using AcceleDent (as are Nadinelliana and monosyllabicgirl) so they switch trays every week.

I hope you have time to look around the community and get to know people :)

Day 1 of Tray 19/32

Just switched my trays last night and they are feeling tight. Since tray 17 I am on a passive lower aligner while the top aligner is still active. Been getting ~22 hours/day of wear , and so far progress is good. I get my next 5 trays at the end of this month.


This may sound like a weird question, but can you take pictures of your latest aligners?  I'm interested in the shape of your arches, especially the lower arch, and how the shapes fit together.
