My Invisalign Journey (aka my 2nd time around with braces)

Tray 10 - Update w/photo

Rate this Entry
I just realized I forgot to upload a photo of Tray 10! For some reason, my teeth look really yellow in this pic...eeek! They don't look this bad in real life. Maybe my lighting was bad. Any how, I'm definitely getting whitening done when my treatment is complete.

On a happy note, after my last post, I'm glad to report that I'm getting my sense of taste back. I was really getting worried. I went almost 2 weeks with no taste whatsoever. It is AWFUL to have food in your mouth and you can't taste it!!! It's not 100% yet, but it's improved enough that I feel like it's going to eventually return. For those of you who haven't read my previous saga. Make sure you don't use mouthwash with cetyl pyradinium chloride in it. It burned the taste buds off my tongue

For those of you in the States, enjoy the long holiday weekend!

    You're getting some really nice movement! Your teeth are looking fabulous!! I am on tray 6 and haven't noticed any change to the visible teeth at all. I know something is going on though because my bite changes a little with each tray and flossing is much easier. Can't wait until I can see a difference!

    I've seen a significant change in flossing. It used to be difficult getting floss between my overlapped teeth. Now that the overcrowding is starting to go away, it's so much easier to floss. It never gets stuck anymore! I'm loving the progress on my two front teeth. The overlap is almost gone!

    You're getting there!! And the overlap being gone is a HUGE milestone. Mine's finally gone, too, although that tooth hasn't completely straightened yet. You need a better before pic! I wish I'd gotten better before pics, too.

    My ortho gave me some "before" pics. I just need to scan them. The one I've been using is from my cell phone. It's a small picture that was enlarged, so that's why it's so grainy. I need to get myself in gear and scan the ortho's photos.
