My Invisalign Journey

Hi everyone,

It has been a couple of months since my last blog, where I took you through the first stages of my Invisalign journey.

I am now on set ten of my aligners and what a difference there has been in such a short space of time. I am really impressed with the progress do far.

The Changes I originally had a gap between my front teeth which was approximately 2mm wide and I used to get my top lip stuck between them.

I also had a gap on the right side between my premolars, which was wider and this gap really made me self-conscious and I kept getting food stuck in between them.

After only 12 weeks, my gap at the front has closed, and the gap at the side has closed half way. I still have a long way to go as I have a total of 30 aligners to wear, so 20 more to go.

Changing aligners

I have changed my aligners 10 times now, and now have a good idea of when I can expect my teeth to be achy.

When I first change my aligner, there is an instant tightness, this last for around 5-10 minutes and then the tightness eases. The aching general last for a couple of days, and then on a few occasions mid-way through wearing my aligners I may get the odd ache, but nothing terrible.

Oral Hygiene Habit Changes

I am continuing to use floss and TePe brushes and the beauty using Invisalign is that I can remove them to clean my teeth properly.
