Invisalign update

This post is sponsored by the makers of Invisalign® clear aligners.

Hi friends!  Now that I’ve had my Invisalign® clear aligners for over a month (and have switched a couple of times), I thought it would be fun to post a little update on my treatment so far. 
The nutshell version: I absolutely love it. At first, I was a bit self-conscious–as you do have to figure out how to talk with them in your mouth, and I also wear rubber bands–but quickly learned that almost no one notices I’m wearing them. When my mom flew in for her visit, she said, “How is the Invisalign treatment going? You better be wearing your clear aligner trays!” haha. I said, “It’s great! I’m wearing them, silly.” She started laughing because she couldn’t see them at all!

When I first went to Dr. Styrt’s office to get the clear aligners, I thought it would be a quick appointment (even though it was booked for an hour). I thought it was like, “Here are your clear aligner trays, here’s how to take care of them and clean them, and we’ll see you soon.” It was so much more involved than that. Many of you mentioned that you needed to have small tooth-colored buttons on your teeth to hold the clear aligners in place. I have 11 buttons on my teeth, and two small metal hooks on my back molars to hook the elastic bands.
