It’s time for another Invisalign® clear aligners treatment update! I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by. For those of you who missed my last posts (read those posts here), I'm currently receiving complimentary Invisalign treatment in exchange for sharing my experience, once a month.
This was my first checkup since getting the attachments (click the photos for full size, so you can get a better idea of what those look like), and I am happy to report that Dr. Zhu says I’m right on track! It might not look like much, yet - my front teeth are still pretty crooked (though less so) - but the biggest difference is how it feels. My bite is more comfortable and my back teeth have been pulled outward, creating more space for my tongue to comfortably sit without me biting the edges. I forgot what it’s like to not have a tongue that’s constantly numb on the sides! Dr. Zhu explained that my upcoming aligners are going to start shifting the front teeth more noticeably, so I’m looking forward to seeing even more progress.
Fortunately, that’s really all I have to report, this time; I was in and out of the orthodontist’s office in less than twenty minutes. Just a quick check up and chat with Dr. Zhu to make sure the treatment was going well, my new sets of Invisalign clear aligners, and I was on my way. Here’s hoping that the rest of the treatment is just as easy!
