Brace Face - Tray 3

I switched to my next tray on Sunday afternoon. 2 down, 26 to go!

Day 1, Day 21
I am only 1/14 of the way through this process, but I feel like I'm an expert already. Before popping my new tray in on Sunday, I smoothed out all the rough edges and took a few tylenol. It was super tight, but I love knowing that I'm getting straighter teeth and it's doing what it is supposed to be doing. On Sunday, I took tray 28 out and compared it to tray 2, which I was putting back in the container and marking as done (the dentist told me to save them...I don't know why? It's kinda weird). I love the idea that my teeth will look like that by February! (I think...my math isn't great.)

Some new things I've noticed this week -
1. I can now pop them in and out without looking in a mirror.
2. I am going to have to just give coffee up completely. I am not supposed to drink hot things with them in (or really anything other than water), and I don't drink coffee fast enough to finish it during my breakfast.
3. I take my trays out for about 45 minutes a day. Yes, I added. Some days, like last Friday night at the volleyball fundraiser, they were out longer. But I think I'm doing an okay job on that front.
4, Chapstick has become my main squeeze. It kind of was before, anyway, but now I feel like I need it all the time.
