Hi I am new!
Just found this site on my quest for support from other Invisalign wearers!! I have 35 top aligners and 58 bottom so am in it for the long haul!! my teeth are very crowded at the bottom, I have a deep bite and I have one tooth which is blocked out behind my top ones on the right, I also have a really narrow smile so a big challenge for invisalign!! I am 46 years old and had a dental phobia which meant I didn't visit a dentist for over 20 years but I have finally decided I want a nice smile so here I am !!
I started on my second set of trays last Friday and had my attachments put on then also (17 in total including one on each of my front teeth!!) I am not coping too badly all things considered, my main problem is a very dry mouth all the time, I am constantly sipping water but to no avail! hoping this will improve over time! I didn't have any pain with my first trays, just a lot of pressure in the first week but I do have a couple of really tender teeth now and it hurts to take out my top tray! Also am feeling self conscious now as the front buttons are really visible!
