So I change my trays every week, which is faster than the normal from what I’ve been told. I’ve been worried about it bc I remembered the paid of having them on those first couple of days.
I prepared myself and took two 400mg of ibuprofen and a Tylenol to lower any inflammation or pain I may feel.. Brushed my teeth, rinsed my trays and put them in. And they felt fine!
Slight discomfort but nothing compared to the first one.. So 2 out of 12 untill I see my Ortho again. And 33 trays left total.!
I’ve been sucking my thumb since I was born and finally quit about a year and a half ago, as a result the front teeth in my mouth don’t touch. I’ve been self conscious about it for years but there was no point in fixing it since I would not stop sucking my thumb.
Now there is.
A month a go I went to FryOrthodontics and had a free consultation about Invisalign braces. It was about 1 hour long and by the end I was sold. So right away they took my molds and sent them off to Invisalign.
5 days ago I went back to the orthodontics because my trays had finally come in.! They let me have my first 12 sets and suprisinly I found that I would be changing trays every week instead of every 2 weeks… Wow.
I have 35 trays total that will be used to close my bite. The first tray was torture for the first few days, not only was it extremely tight but they had left spaces for my wisdom teeth after having me remove them so the back of the tray was cutting my gums. Quick fix tho. Now on day 5 they feel comfortable but day 7 is only 2 days away and I’ll be changing again… Lucky me.
Here are some pics of how my teeth looked and what they will look like at the end!
