On tray 39/42… what?!? How crazy is that. Not sure I’ll make it to 42, as my next appointment is at the end of 41 (Oct. 13), and I’m hoping we just rescan… though he did mention rubber bands before rescanning. I really hope it’s after if it has to be at all. My open bite is not fully closed yet (pics included) but it’s come a long way. I am confident Invisalign could close it the rest of the way, but I’m not sure my ortho will be patient enough. But look at how far I’ve come! I can’t believe I was so worried about telling people and it’s been my secret for 13 months now.

Thanks! My projected treatment time was 26 months but this is after only 13. I can’t believe it. I think it’s just because I hid my teeth for so long, though my family finding out one day is going to be a weird conversation. 🤣

I started tray 42/42 yesterday! I’ll need refinements, but it’s totally unreal I’ve made it this far! My ortho appointment was reschedule because he’s in quarantine, but I’m hoping they realize that the next time I see him I won’t have any trays. I’m worried they scheduled me a quick checkup appointment since I was supposed to see him before I was done. I’m too socially awkward and nervous on the phone to say I’ll need a rescan that day. Regardless, I’m going to be stuck in this tray for like 6 weeks, but hey, lots of flexing on wear time. Rescans and waiting for trays are one downside to Invisalign but the rest has been great. I love being able to smile and show my teeth. Family still doesn’t know, which is such a relief. I got to do this just for me!
