Covid-19 has meant that I have been unable to write anything for the Invisalign blog for quite some time now.
Just before lockdown, I was entering the refinement stage of my treatment, which can happen after your first round of Invisalign if there is room for improvement. Refinement is very similar to the first round, except the treatment is usually a lot shorter and involves fewer attachments and space creation.
Lockdown was challenging while undergoing Invisalign as many of you have probably experienced for yourselves. Using one set of trays for over three months had its pros and cons; one pro being the trays were used more as a passive retainer keeping everything in place rather than moving teeth, so we escaped from the pressure pain and annoyance of having them in for a while.
However, there were probably a few more cons to undergoing Invisalign during the lockdown, the primary factor being the delay in finalising our treatment but also the last set of trays ended up a bit worse for wear, no matter what I did or how much I cleaned them and that’s putting it politely!
In hindsight, though these are all minor nuisances compared with what the world has had to deal with these last few months, and I hope that everyone is well and still on the right track with their Invisalign treatment.
