Wow. All I can say is wow. I started my Invisalign journey back in January and I didn’t think it would be over so soon!! I went from zero to hero (anyone remember what movie that was from??) in SIX months. That just seems crazy to me.
I wrote all about the start of my Invisalign journey in February and told you all about my history with orthodontists. I also told you about having to have a tooth pulled and my anxiousness to actually start treatment.
I picked up my very first Invisalign tray February 26 and I was sooooo excited!! I out those bad boys on and in that instant my world changed. No more drinking anything other than water and no more snacking whenever I wanted. It was difficult but so so so worth it. I was just a little bit excited…
I didn’t post about my treatment again until I was about half way done and I really wish I had documented more!! It seems crazy to me how much my teeth moved in just ten weeks…
Right after I got back from vacation I went for what was to be my very last Invisalign appointment.
My orthodontist came in and checked my teeth, told me I was done, took my “bumps” off my teeth, and that was it!!
Of course my first questions was “now what happens”??? Well I still have to wear my trays at night. I just wore my last tray until I got my final set. I got four sets of trays and I just wear them every night for the rest of my life. I could have opted for a permanent retainer but that just seemed like way too much of a hassle.
I got four sets of trays included with what I originally paid for my Invisalign. They should last a couple of years if I take care of them. When I am out of trays I can just call my orthodontist and she can order me new ones and ship them to me, wherever I may be.
I am so proud of my smile now and I have so much more confidence. Thank you Invisalign for making me smile bigger than ever before!!
And for reference here is my before and after…
