About Straightening Up... UPDATE...

Previous Entry Straightening Up... UPDATE... Oct. 8th, 2005 @ 08:52 pm Next Entry
I've grown completely used to the Invisalign trays... I wake up in the morning and have to actually feel to even know they're still on. My teeth have moved considerably (to me) and I can feel the difference... and now, my teeth only hurt when I take them OFF, which I think is a good sign.

My only complaint at this point is eating. I've never been one to do the three-meals-a-day thing... I'm a grazer, and nibble at things, which I can't do now, since there's this whole take-them-off, eat, floss, brush, put-them-back-on thing. Frustrating.

I'd personally like to move on to the next trays early... maybe expedite this whole thing even... but I think the root canals in the tooth need to reroute a little, I don't wanna do any damage either... so I'll stick with it as is for now, and discuss it with my ortho next time I go in.

All in all though, good stuff :)

One of the things I *really* want to address once I get out of debt (omg ~3 more months), or at least before I turn 30, is getting my teeth fixed.

My grill isn't that fucked up (I'm not afraid to smile), but I have new and charming worn down teeth and slightly uneven gums from the 2 years I did crack every fucking weekend. *sigh*. Aside from a slight overbite, my teeth aren't really crooked.

Periodontal work is both incredibly expensive and painful, and Falcon took orthodontistry (sp?) off the dental plan last year since no one e-v-e-r uses it and it lowered our deduction by $4. Heh.

I'm glad the invisalign is comfortable - I'd be upset by the eating thing to; I typically eat maybe 4-6 times a day.
