Refinement 5. Been a while!

by W1ngz on 09-15-2013 at 10:28 PM
I've skipped posting for quite a while, so just thought I'd throw up a quick update. I'm now on 5/13 of my refinements. Things are slow and steady. I guess if I'd have kept up my original habit of taking pictures, I might see some more things going on. I can definitely feel the changes though, and am starting to see things moving into their 'refined' alignment.

Most of the movement so far has been continued widening at the back, and some modest outward tipping of premolars, so it's

Refinement 2. My take on SmartTrack

by W1ngz on 08-01-2013 at 10:28 PM
So, it was tray change day 2 days ago. This is the first time I've actually let a blog post go for 2 days before doing it. Can you tell I'm just not into this anymore? lol
I can't be bothered to do pics, but I'll do a few on tray 3, or my next visit. I can't really see much movement. I think we're tipping a premolar or two outward right now, so there's not much to see.

A few people have said they're curious about a comparison of the Ex30 (pre2013) material, to this new SmartTrack

Refinement 1: Sacked with another 13 sets

by W1ngz on 07-17-2013 at 12:34 PM
I went in yesterday to pick up my first 3 refinement sets. There's 13 upper, and 8 active lowers, with the next 5 being passive. Most of the teeth that had attachments to start with, have them again in some form, only this time I also got one ittty bitty one on an upper lateral. I hate it. There's a ton of excess material around it, as well as a few others this time, where my first round they were all very cleanly done. I'm going to try and get used to it until my next visit, but it's really aggravating

Now better (sort of) and attachment free (for now)!

by W1ngz on 06-25-2013 at 06:35 PM
Well then... another hurdle cleared. I'm done with my initial treatment! And I have no more little pointy bits of composite attached to my teeth! That's definitely the best part.

Any if any newbies are reading this, yes, I think invisalign is awesome. Don't mind all the horror stories, or the negative side that I'm about to spew out, my mouth is still a work in progress. In 19 trays, I never once had one that was unbearably painful, I had no attachments pop off, my teeth stayed on

The bitter sweet end (tray 19/19!)

by W1ngz on 06-12-2013 at 12:00 PM
At long last, I have my elusive final set of trays that the doc didn't want to give me, insisting that I go in every 2 weeks for the last 3 sets.

In just one tray, I've seen monumental progress on my lowers, and in the last 24 hours since having tray 19 in, they are straight! OMG I never thought I'd see the day. There's a few things that can't be fixed, and if you look carefully at the pics below, I actually have one missing premolar on one side, so the midline will never be right.
