Hi all, I'm so glad I found this community! I am 3 days into my 1st of 22 trays and I'm having a few issues. The first and most annoying is the excess saliva - I feel like I (and I know this is gross) I have to constantly suck the saliva out of my aligners! And if I talk more than a few words, I get a spit bubble and spew saliva all over the place. Not to mention the lisping that comes along with the excess saliva! Secondly, the first day I had them on they fit snugly and the edges were pretty flush to my gum. Now, they seem to have pulled away a bit from the gum and my inner lip and cheek will sometimes get caught in them! That hurts!! I keep telling myself that it's ok - this is all still very new and I will get used to it. After all, little kids get braces all the time and they eventually get used to them, right???
