Re: Lilone's invisalign experience

Well today was an eventful day. I had an appointment at 11:45 but my orthodontist is two hours away and it was bad weather so I left just after 9:00. I'm REALLY glad I did because I barely made it on time since I had to pull over at one point due to zero visibility. When I pulled over I could barely...

Re: Lilone's invisalign experience

So I'm now on tray 15 and, on the whole, the experience has been much easier than I was anticipating. I really can't complain much since I thought it would be a much bigger hassle and it has turned out to be a bit of a non-issue. I do have some small concerns and annoyances with how my uppers are tr...

Re: Lilone's invisalign experience

Ok, so it was super easy. I got anxious over absolutely nothing. No sandpaper, no bad tastes (I had a weird fear of being able to taste my teeth being ground down...crazy...but fear isn't always rational!), and I had no trouble keeping still. There is no pain whatsoever, even when the tool hits the ...

Looks amazing, Ionika! You must be so happy with your results. Good luck with closing that final gap! Do you have a debrace date?

Re: Lilone's invisalign experience

I have my appointment for IPR today and I feel the old phobia kicking in. It hasn't been an issue so far and I'm annoyed that I might have to battle it a bit today. I tried to pinpoint what exactly I'm so afraid of and I can't actually say. I just feel anxious about it. I think it may be the sensory...

Re: Lilone's invisalign experience

I am now on aligner 10 and the movement is getting to be more noticeable to me. The biggest visible difference is with my front tooth that was sticking out but I can tell that everything is on the move. Flossing is super easy because there are spaces between all the teeth. It does mean that more foo...

Re: Digital impressions

In my opinion, it's an excellent technique. A couple of people who have wisdom teeth said that when the scanner got to the very back it felt like there wasn't enough room but I didn't have this problem. I have a very small mouth but no wisdoms. Basically it is like the scanners that librarians use. ...

Re: opera^gal's story

How did things go for your fella, Opera Gal? Hopefully they could fix the crack without too much hullabaloo.

A year already?! Crazy how time flies. Does it all seem like a distant dream yet? Good luck with your cleaning later this month!

Re: Catgyrl's (Cathy's) Journey at age 42...

Yay Cathy! Looks amazing. I can't believe you are finished...must feel fabulous! Is your retainer like invisalign where it is just over the teeth or does it cover the roof of your mouth as well, like a hawley does?

Re: Lilone's invisalign experience

Too funny, Jem! I guess I lucked out and picked the best pubs because I didn't come across any dodgy washrooms...although one had the ladies up a VERY steep and narrow set of stairs that looked like a death trap to any "tipsy" lady with heals on!
