15/16 U & 15/15 L

Wow, I can't believe I'm almost done! (unless I get refinements, of course...) I just have to say that I fully expected the last trays to be the easiest. I figured that the teeth are pretty much moved into place and the movements would be minor. Well, my assumptions were wrong! I just started 15/16 on top and 15/15 on the bottom last night and OUCH did it hurt getting them out this morning. The bottom was so tight that it ripped one of the attachments off when taking it out for breakfast. So it's back to the orthodontist next week to get it back on. My next scheduled appointment is on July 21 and it will be decided if I will get refinements or a retainer. The one tooth that I mentioned in my last post still seems a little out of place so it it doesn't change by next month, I probably will get the refinements. And that will be okay since I expect perfection with the price that I paid. :)

I haven't had time to do a video and a lot of you on YouTube have been asking for an update. I will get one out soon, hopefully. I have so many things going on that it's hard to find a few minutes to throw one together. Thank for all of your messages, comments and feedback and also for sharing your Invisalign stories.

Have a great weekend!

aside from the initial impression
every invisilgn tray is manufactured
in third world countries.Even though
it is profitable enough to be made in america. if you have only minor
corrections they're options available
that cost thousands less. ask your orthodontist what his lab offers.
also if you decide to go with invisilgn stick with an orthodontist
not a general dentist. they know how to troubleshoot in case of a problem.
