Very exciting how fast the time is going, I can't believe I am already on my third tray. I have 32 to go but hey, at least I already began. I put off getting my teeth fixed for so long basically because I was afraid financially. Thankfully though, it all worked out and I couldn't be happier. Getting straight teeth means a lot to me. Mostly internally than for the benefits of others. I've always been happy in life. I have a ton of friends and an amazing boyfriend who is beyond handsome, yet my teeth aren't so lovely and these beautiful people (inside and outside) love me. Regardless of my small not so very pretty smile.
But back to the point. Tray three. This aligner was not that hard to put on but I did have trouble getting the upper tray on because I couldn't get it to click on one of my attachment. Pain wise, I think I'm getting use to it and kind of like it. At first I used over the counter medicine for the pain but now it still hurts but I'm almost proud of the pain. It is like a reminder that I'm getting closer to where I want to be. Overall it hurts when I bite down and when I take out the bottom aligners I'm almost afraid my teeth will fall out. I have two more alligners until I have another ortho apointment. He gave me 5 trays. I'm nervous to go though because he is going to file some of my teeth. I forgot the name, he called it like IPM or IBR. idk something. But it stands for shaving my teeth on the side to make room I suppose. Regardless I'm nervous. But then I'll start seeing more improvement on my front teeth which is my pain concern. I've been keeping them clean and they haven't been much of a hassle. I can't complain. Still beyond happy. (:
