Jenna’s Invisalign Journey – Months 11 – 16

Featured

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. 

Please do give us a call on 01344 482 882 if you have any questions regarding your Invisalign treatment or email our Patient Care Co-Ordinator, Lisa on pc@crownwooddental.co.uk

Jenna’s Invisalign Journey – Months 9 and 10

I have now finished my first course of Invisalign treatment. This treatment consisted of 25 trays which I changed every 2 weeks.

I am now in the refinement stage, where I have had my attachments and buttons (for my elastics) removed. Refinement is where the teeth are rescanned with the Itero machine (3D scanner) and it comes up with another course of treatment to hone the finished product and attempt to achieve a result as close to perfect as Dr Wong would like.

While I am waiting for my new trays to arrive from America, I will keep my last trays in (tray no. 25) and wear them all the time to keep my teeth in position to make sure they do not relapse.

Once my trays are back from America, I will have more attachments placed and continue with the trays like I did before.

Our New Frontage looks AMAZING!

Jenna’s Invisalign Journey – Months 7 and 8

I’m noticing massive changes now in regards to my bite, as this is what my treatment is correcting.

I looked over my photos before I started the treatment and the changes are HUGE.

This is really motivating to keep you on track with your Invisalign treatment, as at times it can be tough.

I don’t have any other pain with the Invisalign trays anymore, like I did in the beginning, with it rubbing.

Now I will only have pain coming from the teeth which are being moved by the trays (which I quite like anyway – as you know it is working).

If you do feel slightly de-motivated then please do ask your dentist for your ‘before’ photos, as I do believe this is a great incentive to keep going.

Just remember that pain is good, in regards to the movement of your teeth, and also why you even started the treatment in the first place.

Jenna’s Invisalign Journey – Months 5 and 6

The FIRST HURDLE with my Invisalign treatment, was going on holiday with the trays.

Being on holiday, where you are constantly having nice food and drinks, made it very difficult with the trays – having to remove them so often.

Although I did indulge on holiday (as you should), but was very honest with Dr Wong about how long I was wearing my trays for. We decided that I should wear the same trays for an extra week.

If at any point you feel like you haven’t worn them as religiously as you were before, its best to be really honest with your dentist, as ill-fitting trays could delay your treatment by having to go back and rectify the movement.

Jenna’s Invisalign Journey – Months 3 and 4

As the months go by, there isn’t a lot of change in my daily routine, in regards to my Invisalign treatment.  So, I have decided to write my blog every two months now, as I should have a little more to talk about.

I will be very honest and admit that I have started to slack with the amount of times I use the ‘chewies’ throughout the day and probably allow myself more tea and coffee in the mornings than I did when I first started the treatment.

This hasn’t affected my treatment, as the slip ups are only minor, but I have noticed that the trays will feel tighter for longer, in comparison to when I was being very good with my trays.  As I noticed the trays felt tighter than before, this really spurred me on to be extremely thorough with them once again.

Jenna’s Invisalign Journey Month 3

Being well into month 3, with Invisalign, I have really started to notice results and movement, which is truly encouraging.  I am now on tray number 10, soon to be onto 11, and have found that these last few trays have had the most noticeable changes; however, this has meant that I have felt the tightness/mild ache has slightly increased with the new trays.

In the beginning of my treatment, the feeling of a new tray being tight would only last around half the day, whereas now it could take up to two days.

The ache is really manageable and hasn’t affected my day to day life whatsoever, so the slightly firmer feeling has actually been nice for me, as it has meant my teeth are moving.

Whether you are changing your trays weekly or fortnightly, you are aiming for your trays to feel slightly loose before you change to the next one.  If they still feel tight by the end of the week/fortnight, continue to wear your trays until they sit flush against your teeth.

Not following this closely, could prolong your treatment.

Chewie’s are the best thing to keep your trays in place and to keep them flush with your teeth.
