So phase two of my INVISALIGN journey came after 8 weeks of wearing a course of four aligners, changing every two weeks.
This appointment, at THE HOSPITAL GROUP was to have attachment/buttons/retention points added to my teeth to help with moving the teeth into place. Adding them to my teeth only took ten to fifteen minutes and was pain free.
As with this whole process, my aligners had been custom made to house these attachments and as soon as I fit the new aligner, it felt very snug, you can feel the tension on your teeth. Which is what you want.
I’ve been told to wear this aligner till the end of the week. I was then given a course of five more aligners, to wear in two week intervals, as before, a booking was made for me to return for a check up in the twelve weeks time.
I think with housing the attachments, this aligner, although ‘invisible’, is more noticeable. I’ve felt that a lot more people have looked at me/my mouth curiously, while/when I’ve been talking, but I’m still happy with it.
Keep an eye out for my next update.
