Yay! I'm finally at the top of the hill, looking down. I am now on Tray 12 of 24...woo hoo!!!
Here's a comparison pic: Tray 12 Comparison.jpg
I'm finally starting to see progress on my lower teeth. This tray set also has 2 power ridges. One is on my lower right tooth (the one that sticks out), which is pushing it backwards in to place. The other is behind my upper left, which is pushing it forward. That upper tooth has moved further and further behind the lower over the years, so they both have a way to go to get back in to alignment.
This set of aligners is also actively widening my arches. I can FEEL the outwards pressure all the way around. Which I guess is a good thing. Usually I stop feeling the pressure a day or so after the new tray goes in. I switched to this set on Tuesday night and it is now Friday afternoon and I am still feeling the pressure. Nothing painful at all, just pressure. Hey, I don't mind...it lets me know it's working!
As I said last time, my ortho thinks I'll probably need refinements. So, even though I'm happy to be half way done with my initial set, I know there are more coming later. Hope everyone is having a great summer!
Let's go, Blackhawks!!!
