Tray 17 - Good/Not-so-good

by SopranoKris on 08-27-2013 at 03:28 PM
I haven't been able to post an update since Tray 15. There has been so much going on at home. Unfortunately, my father-in-law passed away. He was taken to the emergency room with heart failure right after I posted my last blog post. He was in the hospital for 2 weeks, but there was nothing further they could do for him, so he was sent to hospice. He made a wonderful rebound while he was there and had more energy than I've seen him have in months, which was wonderful. We got to spend a great

Tray 14...moving right along :)

by SopranoKris on 07-18-2013 at 01:44 PM
Went to my 6 week ortho check up and got trays 14, 15 & 16. Getting closer to the end of the initial treatment round. I have 24 trays but the last 3 are all over-correction trays, so we're more than likely moving to refinements once Tray 21 is done. My ortho said my teeth are tracking along perfect and he's happy with how my arches are widening, especially my lower arch.

Here's my before photo:

Here's Tray 14:

Tray 13 is on...plus new "before" pics

by SopranoKris on 07-03-2013 at 04:19 PM
Well, I switched to Tray 13 last night. I'm happy to report that Tray 12 did NOT crack...YAY! First time since Tray 7 that I didn't get a crack between my canine & premolar. I think (as you'll see from the pic) that since my canine has started to move down in to position, it's not putting so much pressure in that area anymore.

I finally got off my lazy rear end and scanned in my "before" photo from the ortho. I'm completely embarrassed about how awful my teeth look.

Tray 12...officially half way done!

by SopranoKris on 06-21-2013 at 12:01 PM
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:

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

Tray 11

by SopranoKris on 06-05-2013 at 02:53 PM
Well, it's gonna happen: I'm slated to get elastics down the road. My ortho just confirmed with me today. I asked about the precision cuts on my lower trays and asked him if it meant I was getting elastics. He said that he had planned for elastics just in case my canines weren't moving the way he liked. So far, they're tracking well. However, he said once my trays have pushed my teeth out far enough to make room, we're using the elastics to help pull the canines in line.
