Well I’ve been busy but still head strong with my invisalign. This past tray was fairly painful and I had a few days of bloody trays. My gums have become much more sensitive and wld bleed just from a simple brushing.
I have about 4 weeks until my next ortho appointment, and about 8 until my next cleaning.. It’s got me thinking about whether or not I am supposed to go to my dentist for the cleaning and how I’m supposed to tell them to treat my attachments.
As far as my actual teeth!! Well they look beautiful!!! My open bite is almost closed!!! With just only 7 trays. I knw it won’t be a complete close until tray 20 and then the natural overbite around tray 33 but being about to see the results already is sooo crazy.
The top is obviously before tray 1 and the bottom is during tray 7.
They are continuing to round out and close spacing my bottom teeth and pulling them up to close the gap. They are also still pulling down my top teeth to close the gap, but have yet to address the crowding at the top, that will happen in later trays before my natural overbite takes place.
My situstion isn’t the norm, for now anyways, I change my trays once a week.. But I was still looking for a way to make sure my trays stayed clean.
It’s bad enough they trap moisture and food and any bacteria right nxt to ur gums… So today I bought denture cleaners.
I was nervous when using them bc I dnt want to ruin my trays, but everything worked out well! My trays came ont very clear I rinsed them well and brashes my teeth per usual, flossing.. Rinsing then placedy trays back in.
I think I’m going to clean them once in the 7 days I have to wear them. If after my 12 tray I have Tj start wearing them 2 weeks then I’ll obviously clean them more.
