Laura’s Invisalign Diary: Month 4

If you are considering orthodontic treatment, but don’t like the idea of having fixed braces, then Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you.

Laura, one of our current patients, is keeping a diary about her journey to achieving straighter teeth. Read about her Invisalign experience today!

 

Month 4: Start Of October

 

Invisalign has become a normal part of my life now: I brush my teeth and wash the aligner when I wake up, the same when I eat something and it isn’t an inconvenience anymore. I have grown so accustomed to the aligners that when I put in a new set it doesn’t hurt at all, it feels weird but after a few hours, it feels completely normal again. Food-wise, because it has been quite a long time since I had the attachment put on, my teeth have completely stopped hurting when I eat hard foods and now, I can eat anything without my teeth hurting.

The main incident that has happened this month regarding my aligner is that I lost one of the sets a few weeks back. I think they must have fallen out of my pocket when I took them out to eat so I worried that I would have to restart my journey, however, I put in the next set early and thankfully they fitted fine. I was very relieved.

I am now more careful with where I place them in case I lose them again and the next set doesn’t fit. I’ve been in school for more than a month now and I have had no problem with my Invisalign. I take them out for sport and for when I’m eating. Most people know I am wearing Invisalign now, but there are still some people who stare at me confused when I suddenly take them out and it makes me laugh because they’re so shocked at them.

 

If you are interested in the possibility of Invisalign, give Shifnal Dental Care a call on 01952 460119. Katherine, our Treatment Coordinator, will be more than happy to help! 

Begin your journey to straighter teeth.
