14/17 (third refinement)

My bite won’t close. I look back at pictures of my first set and how my bite was perfect and now there’s a gap in my teeth when I try to bite down. No wonder chewing food has felt so weird. In the profile shots I am closing my teeth down as you can see a clear spacing…

3rd refinements + new attachment

11 Nov

I got new attachments in everyone of my front teeth. This has caused my teeth to yellow more. And this time it’s 16 top, 17 bottom. I really feel like the job sucked.

Tray.. 15/18 IPR 10/10 (with player alterations)

24 Aug

So… I got my imprints again for my last IPR. I have a bite that’s not even and apparently the parallel top tooth that’s stuck back won’t come down or move up.

Tray 9/10, 9/18

27 Apr

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty certain that my doctor is a stoner. I mean, I went up there. He was pretty funny, laid back gave me all the trays I wanted. Even though I forgot I had #9 and that it was at home or lost, he told me to skip it and gave me 10. Said that now the bottom was done. The assistant kind of shook her head, like this is something he does a lot. I laughed because I appreciated the honest genuity. However, I did pay a hefty price for my teeth, so I asserted, “are you sure?”. Which he responded with hesitation and then reached for plyers on the last tray to add more pressure and told me to keep them in as retainers. I still got 8 more to go on the top. I don’t know it’s weird guys. He’s a funny ortho dude, but I can’t help but worry. I got one more refinement left just in case for the top. The top teeth are so slow in improvement I worry. Also, I definitely have cavaties, the catch is that to get fillings I’d need a whole new batch of trays to fit the molding. What a joke this whole thing has been. I mean I definitely see improvement. I’m just a little dismayed by the service. ¬†All in all, so far so there.

Tray 6 (refinements) aka 25

4 Mar

Apologies for the lack of posting. I was put on hold twice by my doctors and mixed with my work schedule it turned into losing 5 months of Invisalign treatment. My doctor Calian sold her practice.. It’s a mess. Anyway I got the refinements, and am on Tray 6/10, 6/18 (top).

That totals about.. Tray 25..? Including the first dose.

See pictures below on progress. The top seems to be going NOWHERE! And it’s the most important part for me!
