I have been working on my restoration for three years and can finally do Invisalign. After several consultations with various providers and all of them giving me the same treatment plan to do Invisalign, I knew it was the right choice for me. Having that as my final goal, knowing how much I had to save and knowing the expectations was all I needed, if only time would go by faster so that the three years of work would fly by and I could focus on my bite and lets face it, aesthetic look.
I am on tray #1 of #21 and hope that is how far I have to go, but I WILL NOT stop until my teeth are just where I imagined them to be. I can appreciate everyone's set backs and pains as they go through treatment but for me, it is nothing compared to having bleeding lips. I was fully prepared to have sore teeth and difficulty chewing as well as awkwardness when dining out. I just face it as I would any other change I would make to my appearance. Outside of getting a haircut, changing any part of our bodies such as getting fit, correcting our posture, physical therapy, and orthodontist are not different. No pain no gain, so I will grin and bear it until the results I set my eyes on have been articulated.
