The Horrors of Bumps!
- 23 days ago
I'm on aligner 3 of 21 and have just had IPR and 7 lots of bumps fixed on after the first month. I found the first aligner shred my tongue but after a bit of filing and ibuprofen, it healed and hardened, and felt no more discomfort for the rest of the month. But the BUMPS! omg....I just want to keep the aligners in 24/7, because the sharp edges scratching on my gums and grinding against my other teeth is rubbish. I have bought clear soup for the rest of the week so I don't have to remove them except for cleaning. And seriously, they are tighter than bark on a tree....so hard to lever off. I'm scared I'll snap them (or my teeth) when I have to take them off. I wish I could just not eat or clean my teeth for the next 10 months!!!!
How did you brave sailors manage to get through the attachment bit? I think these bumps are going to be on for the rest of my treatment - though I might have the positions changed towards the latter part of treatment. My smile looks like my teeth are having baby teeth growing off them!
