Laura’s Invisalign Diary: Month 5
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 5: Start Of November
This month I went to the dentist for a check-up, Dr Hughes told me everything was fine with my teeth, all my attachments were still present and no work was needed so I wasn’t there long.
My teeth have been straightening well and they have changed a lot since I started, I am very happy that I made the choice to have Invisalign treatment, and so far, everything has been going very well.
I have just started the eleventh set so I am a bit early (because I should be on the tenth) this is because if you remember I had to go onto the next set when I lost one of them last month. Changing sets still for the most part doesn’t hurt however I have been wearing them less this month because I have had a lot of sport competitions in the past couple of weeks including a swimming gala which I was at for a whole day and because I had a race every twenty minutes I didn’t have enough time to put them back in so I didn’t wear them that day. Because of this I have been changing them less frequently (wearing them more than the 10 days) in order for my teeth to straighten out fully into the shape of that set – this is slightly annoying because after a while of wearing the aligner’s they get slightly discolored even after cleaning them.
However, this only happens after around twelve days of wearing them, so it doesn’t make a difference usually. Apart from the dentist visit nothing much has happened this month regarding my Invisalign so goodbye for now.
