  1. Tray 4-refinements

    On tray four of my refinements. My teeth hurt, so it must be working. I have to admit, refinements aren't as fun as the original treatment was. At the beginning I could notice the slightest improvements but not I barely can tell anything, aside from the slight pain. At the end of the month I go to get my 6th tray plus a few more. I'm not sure if I'll get more IPRs or what. I can't believe I have a whole year more of this. So strange. My teeth were so bad before and I had 35 trays and now that they're ...
  2. I don't even know how to feel about this...

    My orthodontist just passed away. Literally the worst news I have ever heard. Not only was he super nice and hilarious but he was the best invisalign orthodontist in the northeast, if not in the united states. I donít even know how to reaact to this. Iím on tray 30 of 35 and who knows if Iíll need refinements. But I donít want anyone to touch my mouth but him): Iím paying 7,000 dollars for him because he is the best. They said weíd all continue receiving great care but Iím probably going to vomit/cry ...
  3. Tray 25(:

    Can't believe I am already on tray 25. Wow time really does fly. In two weeks I go in for a few more attachments (on my front teeth, etc) and get five more trays. Only ten more to go! This is crazy. I couldn't be happier. I know I'll need refinements but the progress I've seen already is more than enough to be grateful for. Can't wait to see what they look like after the last set, never mind after refinements.

  4. tray 18 with pics /:

    Still don't feel comfortable with my teeth but after looking at my before and after I feel so much better. Moments ago when I switched into my 18th tray I was kind of upset. For my bottom teeth I am only suppose to have 19 trays, leaving me with 4 weeks until they should be complete but I don't think that is going to happen. I mean who knows but just stinks. I know refinements are common but I have 35 trays for my top teeth and I'm almost positive they wait until my whole mouth is done to do refinements, ...

  5. Tray ten(:

    I just put tray 10 on. More than excited, can't even explain. Nine more for the bottom and twenty five more for the top..but hey closer than before I started. Not to mention next appointment I get my IPRs done on the bottom. (:
  6. sixth tray (:

    So today I went to the orthodontist for basically the first time since I got my original set of trays (well minus the emergency visit to put an attachment that fell off, back on). He gave me five the first time and this time I got five again. (: Good news, well for the most part, I didn't have to get IPRs this time. I must have misunderstood the lady the last time. It is kind of disappointing because I really can't wait for my front teeth to start moving but that really won't be until the end of ...
  7. Second Tray (:

    Just put my second tray in after dinner tonight. So far it feels alright but when I first put it in it felt super tight, almost like my teeth would break. For some reason Invisalign makes me feel like my teeth are glass, well at least the first couple of days while your teeth are first adjusting into the aligners. Regardless I'm super happy and I've been keeping up with it well but then again I've only made it two weeks. I've kept them in for every day for the recommended 22 hours and if not I kept ...
