Trays 2-5

After the first 2 weeks Matt saw me again, he asked if I had any issues to which I had none, wearing the trays for the recommended 22 hours a day has been much easier than I anticipated. At this visit Matt shaved a little off the side of one of my teeth which was completely painless, this bit of space gives room for the teeth to move into as they straighten out. Once this was done he placed the second tray in for me. Matt then provided me with the next 2 trays to change myself at home on 2 week intervals. I have made it through trays 2 to 5 without much discomfort. I’m finding the process relatively simple and it hasn’t affected my daily life much and the time is flying by. I have had quite a few patients talk about orthodontics to me and when I tell them that I’m wearing Invisalign they are really shocked as they hadn’t even noticed, which is great! I feel confident talking and smiling knowing that they are hardly visible.


Trays 5-11

Following completion of the 5th tray, it was time for another appointment with Matt, there was no more treatment required yet; just a check to see if the teeth were moving as they should and that I had no issues such as lost composite achievements (the little white filling I mentioned earlier). The visit was slightly delayed as I was on holiday so I had been wearing tray number 5 for 3 weeks rather than 2. I had no issues smiling on my holiday photos and when I look at them I don’t even notice the aligners. I can really tell my teeth have started to move, I have even changed the size of inter-dental brushes I use to clean in between, I am really happy with the results so far and can’t wait for my journey to continue. I have been a bit naughty with my aligners though but have definitely learned my lesson. As we have been experiencing a heat wave I thought the odd glass of sugar free orange wouldn’t effect anything if I just left my tray in. I was wrong! It stained them yellow, it was hardly visible when I had them in but they looked rather nasty when I took them out. I couldn’t wait to change in to my next set, that’s a mistake I will not be making again!
