Give me strength! You see that button on the inside of that molar? It’s the reason I went home early from a party. I am desperate! Someone that had the same button, please tell me you get used to it quickly! The nerve pain in my tongue and ear is crazy😩
Attachment cuts is NOTHING compared to this. I’ve tried wax, not talking, not swallowing and so on.. Invisalign is all fun and games until you get a button there😡
Warning: Do not turn on the sound if you’re sensitive to unpleasant sounds.
A lot of people need IPR (interproximal reduction, safe amount of enamel removed) before and/or during @invisalign-treatment to make room for teeth movement or to avoid black triangles forming.
This is IPR happening. I can’t say it’s a pleasant feeling, but it looks and sounds 100 times worse than it is. It’s not painful at all, but you may experience some sensitivity the following days, especially if they use the “drill”.
So, I had a bad day yesterday, but I’m feeling much better today! Had a conversation with the great @ric_brown_dentistry about my clincheck, and he gave his opinion. First of all, I’m confident I won’t end up looking like a horse 🐎 😂 Second, I shared my/his concerns regarding my scissor bite, and I ended up with buttons and elastic in the back, with the goal of bringing the two teeth in line with the rest. I’m excited to see if this works! I will definitely need refinements to make it 100% perfect, but we’ll see at tray 21 if we’re satisfied with my bite and I with the looks.
Having a really bad I-want-to-cry-and-melt-my-Invisalign day today.
I’ve looked at my clincheck approximately 2,5 million times since May, and have been looking forward to the end result. I’ve said since day one that refinements are out of the question because I’m over the whole process, but I’m no longer sure.
I’m scared my teeth are going to stick out like that at the end, and I’m scared my whole profile is going to change for the worse... I don’t even have the right tooth shape to get that beautiful smile like others, but luckily some bonding can fix that.
I wish I didn’t approve the clincheck with that messed up bite in the back, but I didn’t knew what to expect and what I could demand. I just want to cry. Maybe it’s Invisalign, maybe it’s PMS, who knows 🤷🏼♀️ Maybe tomorrow is a better day, let’s hope so! Have a nice evening you guys ☺️
I know it's barely Fall and I'm actually excited to go to a pumpkin patch and do fall things but here's a spring picture that I absolutely love and didn't get to post lol.
Aligners can be hard to remove or insert sometimes. Luckily some warm (not hot!) water will make it easier, so swish some water in your mouth or hold them under running water, and you’ll get them in/out in no time 💪🏼💃🏼
