Tray 4 of 35 – invisalign journey 

Sooo it’s Tuesday night again. And I must change my trays. Last time I told you I wld do research on why my trays weren’t uncomfortable. It seems, from what I found, that they are working correctly or I wldnt be able to put on the next tray.. But that some ppls bodies respond differently to the movement of their teeth. Because I just had my wisdom teeth removed my teeth are moving more easily, causing less stress and irritation to my gums. 

However I may have spoke prematurely.. By Saturday tray 3 was very tight and my mouth was sore so.. Bring on the pain! Lol 

I have tray 4 in now, they are relatively tight but I like knowing it’s working, or “feeling” that it’s working. 

ALSO! I told you about Crest HD and how it’s amazing well .. It still is, but I’d suggest using a soft tooth brush with the whitening and polishing gel or “step2” in the HD system. It’s not as thick as regular tooth paste and my brush feels really hard against my gums .. Anyway here is me with tray 3  


And me at the end of tray 3 with pith trays 

   

Cleaning My Trays 

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.
