I will probably drop the daily updates for Invisalign after today and switch to summaries.
Today was better. I only really had discomfort until lunchtime. For some reason, once I put them back in after lunch the pain got so much worse – more like yesterday. I did manage on one set of painkillers today though, so things are looking up.
I’m kind of getting the hang of removing the top brace, but the bottom one is a bastard to remove. It inevitably ends up with me bent over the kitchen counter (like gravity is going to help), drooling heavily onto a sheet of kitchen towel, mouth wide open, fingers inside, with the brace semi-detached while I cringe with pain and struggle to get the front part to release my teeth.
Anyway! Here’s a pic of how they look in all their glory:
Top and bottom, whipping those toothy-pegs into shape in no time, apparently. I still can’t quite believe that my teeth are going to move when they have looked this way for so many years…
