Re: I want to give up! (story included)

Okay...well..I just left my appointment... Turns out my aligners weren't fitting right because THEY FORGOT TO CUT THEM OUT. They seriously forgot to cut them out around the hooks before giving me the aligners and making me wear them for 3 weeks. So now I have to wear them for another 3 weeks-thats 6...

If I get told I still just need to wear the aligners for 3+ weeks each, when that's clearly not doing me any good after this much time of doing that, I'll get my mom to have a talk with them because theyre so rude to me...mayb...

Re: Can you use efferdent power clean crystals

I use these, and I don't have any problems with yellowing of the trays. They're still very clear, no cloudiness or yellowing, at the end of 2 weeks. I soak the aligners in the crystal solution in the morning while I eat breakfast and clean my teeth, then rinse them off and brush them in water before...
