Month 6: Start of December
This month my Invisaligns sets really hurt , probably because they were a bigger change to my teeth compared to all the previous sets. I wore each set longer then I usually do so that my teeth would eventually become accustomed to the shape and after the first week they didn’t hurt at all , however they hurt so much the first few days that I had to keep taking them out . If I were to explain how they felt then I would say imagine that your teeth are being tightened really bad and pulled up into your gums but even though they hurt so much the pain only lasted a few days so it wasn’t too bad. What I did find really strange was all the other times certain sets would be quite painful my teeth would ache when I ate hard food ,so I would have to eat softer foods for that week , however this time they wouldn’t hurt at all so I ate whatever I wanted and I couldn’t understand why because the sets from this month hurt just as bad if not worse as the other ones.
This month was I think the first time where I could actually see the difference in my teeth because before now I could tell my teeth have changed by trying on previous sets and them not fitting but now when I look at the mirror I can see how the gaps in between my teeth have changed and the shapes of some of my teeth are also different so I was very happy with that. However nothing much apart from that has happened this month and if you were wondering, I still take my invisaligns out for sport because I find it hard to breathe with them in after a while because when I’m really tired and gasping for air they sometimes get in the way and I will have to take them out.
