28 Trays and I Will Not Longer Have Gaps! - West Bend, WI

I'm a 26 year old female who has been wanting braces for years, finally got the money and did it! I have gaps, over crowding, and a slight over bite. I cannot wait for my smile to finally bring me confidence!! I'm at day 3 already, the first two days are extremely hard but it is getting easier. My mouth had developed cuts inside my mouth from my trays, I definitely have a lisp and my mouth is just uncomfortable. But it's getting better...

So far so good

I'm about 5 weeks in and on tray 3. I got my alignments placed on my teeth earlier this week finally! The first 4 weeks started bad but got so easy. The second tray had no pain and actually felt kind of loose. Now, with my alignments on, my teeth are in pain again! But I'm glad because I know it is making my teeth shift. My dentist had to shave down one of my alignments really far because I had a HUGE gap that wouldn't let me bite down. Also, the only con to this is my top tray doesn't seem to go up to my gum line and is causing really bad scrapes on my inner lip. It also doesn't click when I set my tray in, only my bottom ones click. So, we will see if that passes.

Only met him for about 10 minutes, very nice and thorough.
