Today I started my Invisalign! Remember couple of months ago I had X-rays, Photos, and Impressions taken? Afterwards my trays were made based on my 3D treatment plan. I was told to take vitamin C and calcium during the treatment as written on the box.
Today I received my box of aligners, all 22 of them! Each aligner is supposed to be worn for about 2 weeks.
The aligners are placed in pouches like this, and here's what my first set looks like:
Putting on the top aligner for the very first time. It was a bit tight and I needed to really push it in.
They are really fitted....
Putting on the bottom aligner.
Both top and bottom aligners are on! Very attractive I know >.<
And yes, they are pretty much invisible, especially in photos. Oh and no makeup on! I feel naked =p
My initial reactions: The aligners are really fitted (kind of like skinny jeans LOL), and I needed to really push them onto my teeth. Currently they feel very tight but not THAT painful yet given that I've only worn them for 1 hour. I've already taken Advil beforehand to prepare for the worst =p I am starting to think that this is probably what dogs feel when we put clothes on them - that there's something stuck there and you just want to yank them off =p Also, I am supposed to eat and sleep with these aligners on. Eating will be very tricky, they don't feel very comfortable as I try to bite.... hmm....
