A really short Invisalign post to share my joy!
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.
