Invisalign Teeth

The Bars are off! (an Invisalign update)

April 14, 2019

A really short Invisalign post to share my joy!

Finally my Carriere Motion 3D Appliance device has been removed from my top teeth – after nearly 6 months.  You can read more about the device and why I had to have it fitted here.

Fox, Ram, Moose, Cougar

I went through 4 strengths of elastics – which are named after animals.   I progressed through the animals and ended up wearing one cougar elastic on my left side and one cougar plus one ram on my right.  I had to wear elastics 24 hours a day – and only 1 person ever said anything!

My right teeth were slower to move, and never did catch up but my orthodontist has said he can do the rest with Invisalign.

I was a bit worried that my teeth (the canines, the one the elastics hooked onto) had gone yellow.  This was just the glue – they are not stained, and are now back to the same colour as the rest

Back to Invisalign

So soon I will be back wearing InvisalignUK trays again on my upper and lower teeth.

I have had another scan and am waiting the 3 weeks for my new Invisalign trays to be made.

In the meantime I have to wear a retainer for 12 hours a day to stop my top teeth moving back.

My orthodontist has said it will take another 9 months to a year and then I will be done – my bite will be as good as it can get.

Also, I am not entirely done with elastics.. I have been told I will have to wear them again during some of the next stage of my treatment, but not all the time.

I wonder which animal they will be?… I shall let you know.
