I Love Invisalign - Winston Salem, NC

i just started invisaline yesterday. I have a lot of overcroweding in my bottom teeth with one tooth especially far back. i have 28 trays on the top and 28 trays on the bottom. As of now i have no buttons on my teeth but I will go back in 2 weeks to have them put on. My orthodontist called said these first set of trays are almost like trainer trays before we get into the real stuff with the attachments.

I just stated them yesterday afternoon and now about 24 hours later I feel quite a bit of soreness. I have taken two tylenol but it only helps so much and when I take them out the back bottom tooth hurts a lot. Its not unbearable, maybe like a 5 or 6/10 but just worried this was more pain then i should be in considering I don't even have the attachments put on yet. Any thoughts on this? I'm just a little concerned.

I called the orthodontist today becuase it is three days later and the pain makes it hard to even get through a work day. I'm glad I called because he told me that the first trays are the hardest and usually hurt for the first 3-5 days . He also said that even though he called these "trainer trays" they are still moving the teeth. He told me to take 2 advil every four hours to ease the pain (i had been taking tylenol mainly and he said advil is better for teeth pain) and to clench my jaw every so often to increased the blood flow and to decrease the pain. This has helped so much!!!! I hadn't been touching my teeth to each other really at all becuase it hurt so much, but now that I have been clenching from time to time the pain has decreased significantly!!! To the point where I don't even think I need the advil.

I got my attachment put on today!! They are a little scrachy without the trays in but I'm getting used to it, no big deal. And you can hardly notice them by looking, they match the color of my teeth pretty well. I have 6 attachments on the top and 6 attachments on the bottom. My teeth are only a little sore with the new trays. I think I'm getting used to it, plus the clenching and advil help too. It's deffinitly a lot harder to get the trays on and off now, especially the top but I'm getting used to it. Takes me about 5 minutes to get them out. So far I'm very pleased and can already tell my teeth have moved some :)

I'm on tray 8 now. It's going very well. Only slight pain when I change trays for the first day or two but nothing bad at all. I think my teeth are starting to move some. Was hoping to see more progress but I'm sure they must be moving in the right direction because the trays keep fitting ok. I'll post some pics to compare.
