Re: Carriere distalizer plus invisalign?

I got all of my wisdom teeth out. Distalizer is in and it makes my teeth super sore. I have only been doing this for a day. I hope the journey is worth it!

Treatment wasn't particularly successful mainly because I was a terrible patient. Around age 21-22 I got braces again. I had crowding of my lower teeth. My orthodontist a...
