So I am done with my trays finally 18/18!!! I knew I would need refinement trays….no prob….what happens!!?? I need 33 trays for top and 18 more on bottom!!!! I mean….good—-ness!!! Well it is so much because thy want to try and move my back teeth forward which is hard and would take a while. Let’s see how this goes. Oh and even better, they added two more buttons to my front tooth….ugh this is going to be a looooong year.
So sorry it took me so long to post this picture. But here they are! 18/18!!!!! I love the results! Now, I can be done and order retainers but the flesh or skin between my front two needs to be removed and because of the spacing in the front being closed it cause a gap on my side teeth so I will be adding some refinement trays to correct that spacing. But what do y’all think?! Looks great right!
17/18 top and 16/16 bottom…..I have one last tray and I will keep that one on for three weeks instead of two. Then I go to the dentist to see if I will need any extra trays for refinement or take the buttons off and get started with retainers. I am thrilled with the results :-) hope you all are having a great week!
Last tray for bottom teeth, 2 more for the top…..hopefully haha certainly have come a long way, proud of the results. I understand I might need refinement trays after, but I won’t know till I’m done with these trays. Have school Tuesdays and Thursdays with no time to get lunch, so I take these out eat a granola bar and put them back on after rinsing with water. Guess what happened? Nothing haha, I had to get something in my belly or the whole class would hear my stomach growling like crazy. I am so adamant on brushing and flossing after meals but, when you have no time you got to make best of the time you have. As soon as I get home I make sure and brush and floss. No biggie. Don’t sweat the small stuff peeps if you don’t have to. :-) take care and have a great weekend!
14/18 top aligners 14/16 bottom aligners getting close to the end, hopefully I won’t need too many refinement trays after, but if I do oh well, it’s worth it :-D
Can teeth be sore? Maybe it’s my gums that are sore? I don’t know but my teeth are sore…because that’s what it feels like. I usually change my aligners before I go to bed, that way they will have a good 5-6 hours to make the initial adjustment without me having to take them out to eat and brush. I’m on tray 14/18!! I’ll post a teeth pic later :-) I love that I can smile and not be insecure about it. I guess I should stop being an introvert and flash these baby’s around, buuuut that’s not my style haha I like being in my own space haha it’s freaking freezing and I didn’t study because the meteorologists were predicting snow and I was hoping school would be canceled…..I guess God heard my plan and laughed….ugh oh well it’s my own genius fault for not taking the first test seriously. Anyways, I’m rambling which means I am stalling….have a good day people :-D
Man Chewies help so much especially now with these aligners….they help to get the aligners on and set….with each set it gets tighter. Ask your dentist if you don’t have them! If they don’t then check out eBay or amazon.
Oy, soreness was a little more intense with this set but after a few minutes it would go away, until it was time to take them off and there it was again! Hahaha oh it didn’t last long, takes a day or so for my teeth to adjust and for me to get used to it. Nothing to go home and cry to momma about. Overjoyed with the results as always :-D love that I am drinking more water and staying away from so much soda, it’s been so much better for me and I feel better because of it. I thought this would be so difficult (I am the biggest opposer of change, incredibly stubborn) it’s had it’s challenges but not as bad as I had expected. Whatever hurdles I have been met with, it’s all worth it because I have something incredible to show for it ! Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
