DONE! wooo hoo

After 22 lowers and 15 uppers, and 3 refinement trays, im donezo!! I'm very excited and happy with my treatment. Now that being said, there is one bottom tooth that is about a fraction off, but the only person to notice is myself. Everyone else notices straight teeth! I know if I had gone for tradit...

I am just finishing my tops, but my bottoms still have 7 more to go. I am wearing my last top aligner for 4 weeks, and then he ordered an invisalign retainer for my tops until the bottoms are done. And then ill get my refinements done together at the end, and go towards the permanent retainer then. ...

My friends always catch me staring at my teeth now.. and make fun of me.. i just told them to get used to me walking around all the time with my mouth open pointing at how pretty they are.. I really think that not being a teenager has made me obsessive with how they will look. I dont remember any of...

My ortho said he would keep the ones that I wasn't keeping in my red container( blue are my recent trays, red are the previous trays). But I told him I liked having them. To be quite honest it shows the progress of my teeth. Every once and a while I take my old ones out and say "look how crooked tho...

It goes by pretty fast.. relatively speaking. Eventually you just kind of forget your in treatment. It becomes such a routine that now getting work done on teeth or having to brush my teeth all the time is just like washing my hair:) The only thing I've ever hated about them is the IPR, because of t...

my lisp went away, except when I talk really quickly ie when im excited.. or when im drunk (clearly drinking does not help my speech) but i had a speech problem when I was younger, so I am pretty good about catching myself. I find that the first day of a new aligner I especially have to slow down my...

Mine is costing approx 6000/cdn. But i get about 1000 back from the benefits plan which is pretty low here in Ontario, but that is only because I am still under my fathers insurance plan, and his ortho plan sucks. But hey 1000 dollars is better then nothing:) I had to pay 1800 in the first month, an...

I know on the Bottom's they were doing .5's and .4's. Im hoping that by the next visit because my bottom's have shifted a little bit with this aligner, it will relieve some of the pressure under the gums and thus get rid of pain (i pray that this happens). Pretty much I just hope there is less blood...

Bad day with IPR

So today i went in for my three month cleaning and some drilling for fun. I've had IPR about 4 other times on my top teeth, in the molars and to be quite honest I didn't know what the big deal was. Then today happened. My major crowding is in my bottom teeth, they are pretty much piled on top of eac...

Okay. being a University Student and to be quite honest a heavy drinker, I was in fear of what I could and could not drink at the bar. In the beginning I would drink only vodka and water. No sugar nothing. Then after a few months, I needed to add flavour back into my life:) I Drink almost anything e...
