I started my Invisalign treatment in October 20 and I am now 12 weeks into my 20 week plan and I wanted to share some tips.
My Invisalign trays are changed once a week and I have a dental check up and collect my next set of 4 trays every month. This has worked very well so far and I really cannot believe I am already using week 12.
I can see an incredible difference so far and I am so looking forward to the final result. It makes wearing the trays for AT LEAST 22 hours a day worth it. In fairness with the way everything has worked out, considering all the Covid related madness, I probably couldn’t have chosen a better time to go through the treatment. For a start I pretty much haven’t been out and about at all apart from a few times during OCT/NOV when we could actually physically go into somewhere to eat food. So I do feel I have been less restricted than most people having this treatment in what would be considered ‘normal’ times! Read more
If you’ve read my last post you will know I decided to start Invisalign Go treatment to straighten my teeth. This post will cover my initial Invisalign Go consultation and 3D scan appointments.
Once I decided that I was interested in Invisalign Go I booked an appointment with my dental surgery to have initial pictures taken to find out if I would be a suitable candidate for this type of teeth straightening. Surprisingly not everyone is.
It literally took minutes and the photos were taken on the dentist’s phone which is linked to an app. Those initial photos will get you the ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer pretty much straight away.
I was quite sceptical that I would actually be suitable for the treatment. There is a LOT of movement required to fix my smile.
Invisalign Go treatment is something I have lusted after for quite a few years. But as it’s quite an investment we weren’t in a position to even contemplate it until now.
I have been incredibly self conscious about my crooked teeth for as long as I can remember. Even though I had standard plate braces back in the day. Bear in mind I’ve just turned 50, so that gives you an idea of what brace treatment was available way back then. There was also no real form of after care, retainers or anything remotely similar to keep them in their new ‘straight’ position.
It was inevitable that over time those buggers were going to get on the move after a while.
